New Web FontFonts to host on Typekit

New FontFonts are now available to host on Typekit, including FF Eureka Sans, FF Legato, FF Max, FF Meta Headline, FF Scuba, FF Seria Sans, FF Strada, FF Tisa Sans, and more. See the latest FontFont newsletter for details.


FF Tisa Sans Black and Bold, with FF Tisa Regular (source text)

FF Tisa Sans boasts a meaty fourteen styles, from Thin to Black. Tisa Sans is a new counterpart to one of FontFont’s most popular web fonts, and a customer favorite here at Typekit: FF Tisa.


FF Legato Demibold, Italic, and Bold

Agile and active, FF Legato was designed to exercise the black-white relationships in typeset words. Legato feels like a face made for reading. Used for headlines, the tension between its letterforms and their white space seems impossibly high — as though nothing could disrupt its balance.


FF Eureka Sans Bold Italic and Regular (source text)

Even at its most bold, the tall and lean FF Eureka Sans sets a light, elegant tone. Its boughs and bends appear poised to flex gracefully at a moment’s notice, yet the face conveys strength. Available in two widths of five weights each, with italics.

License any of these fonts from FontFont, and host them on Typekit with any of our plans (including our free plan). When you purchase a one-time web license for type families or individual typefaces at FontFont, you’ll receive a link to activate your fonts on Typekit. Then, you can use them just as you would fonts from our subscription library. You can even mix Web FontFonts in the same kits as Typekit library fonts. It’s easy, and all of your fonts stay organized on Typekit in a special “Purchased Fonts” tab. Here’s how it works.


The Purchased Fonts tab organizes fonts you’ve licensed outside of Typekit

Typekit’s subscription library is a solid foundation. But, in Robert Bringhurst’s words, as you “choose your library of faces slowly and well,” remember to think outside the library, too. By bringing fonts to Typekit, as well as finding go-to typefaces we already offer, you can cultivate your own personal type library.

    That’s fine and dandy, but how about bringing a few of these to the standard subscriptions? Would be nice to be able to combine Tisa and Tisa Sans for example.

      It is nice to combine Tisa and Tisa Sans, and you can. You acquire the license for Tisa Sans in a different way, by purchasing directly from FontFont, but using an externally licensed font is just like using any Typekit font.

      Erwin, as you appreciate Tisa Sans, I’m sure you can appreciate that type designers are experimenting with many different business models. Purchasing fonts directly from FontFont has its advantages and disadvantages, just as Typekit’s subscription library has.

      Personally, I enjoy licensing fonts both ways. Typekit’s library lets me experiment freely and get to know the work of many different type designers. FontFont lets me bundle print+web licenses and manipulate web font files. Either way, I am happy to support type designers for their fine work.

      That all said, I’m happy to pass along your request to FontFont. Feedback about which business models customers like (or don’t) is great.

    Due to the fact that web design has now become accessible to such a broad range of users—particularly amateur designers, small businesses, and non-profits—the subscription library is the best way that a broad audience will use and be exposed to libraries of different foundries.

    In my mind, from there, users would then consider purchasing fonts for other applications—print materials, general branding etc.

    For example, I recently helped a small grassroots network of energy committees in Vermont design and launch a new website. I used FF Meta Serif and Ronnia for body and headers. Without the subscription service, I would have never found those fonts and thought of using them. If I were going through a design process with an organization that had more print materials and did a greater amount of promotional work, being able to experiment with fonts at a web-level would then make it easier to convince an organization to purchase fonts for print in their overall branding strategies.

    Just a thought, but I do think having access through subscription generates exposure that otherwise would not occur, and is a missed opportunity for future font purchases.

    best,

    Jake
