Veer joins Typekit

Now we’re going to have some fun … Veer type is available on Typekit! For starters, you can give your website or blog personality and panache with beautiful display faces from Veer’s Jukebox collection, “a treasure trove of typographic Americana” inspired by the 1950s and ’60s.

Corner Store

A medium weight, connected ‘signage’s style’ script font. This face was based on a hand lettered alphabet in a vintage sign painting ‘how-to’ publication.

Hooligan

A playful sans serif with a modulated baseline. The roman weights was based on an old photo-typositing face from the 1960s, while the italic was added by Jason Walcott.

Adage Script

A warm script font with a down-home feel. Digitally revived from a vintage photo-typesetting face. The character set has been expanded and modernized.

Peachy Keen

Peachy Keen is a chunky sans serif that is bold and playful, with a hand-drawn cartoon-y feel. The font was inspired by a how to book on lettering entitled “Practical Lettering” published in 1955.

We’ve added these four, plus six more Veer typefaces: Annabelle, Baroque Text, Bookman, Buena Park, Hellenic Wide, and Tamarillo. And the best thing is, this is just the beginning of our partnership with Veer. You can look forward to more selections from their amazing library on Typekit in the future.

    This is starting to really tick me off. Why have I waited OVER ONE WEEK on a support issue from you guys?

    1. Jeffrey Veen says:

    Cowabunga! Will you ever stop?

    (I secretly hope Kevin Cornell’s Phaeton will be ported to Typekit, I would love to use it for a personal project … well that is not a secret anymore)
