New fonts from Adobe Type

August 2, 2012

Leander Script Pro and Source Sans Pro

Today we welcome two newly-released fonts from Adobe Type into the Typekit library: Viktor Solt-Bittner’s Leander Script Pro (Regular and Bold) and Paul Hunt’s Source Sans Pro (Extra Light, Light, Regular, Semibold, Bold, and Black, plus italics). Source Sans Pro is Adobe’s first open source font release; Hunt shares why Adobe created an open source typeface over on Typblography.

We’ve also added five fonts from the Adobe Wood Type series to the library: Cottonwood Std, Ironwood Std, Juniper Std, Mesquite Std, and Ponderosa Std. These decorative typefaces look great set in bright colors, and fit right in with Typekit’s other Wild West fonts.

Source Sans Pro is available in all Typekit plans. Upgrade to a Personal plan or higher to use Leander Script Pro and the Wood Type series.

Adobe’s Typblography blog has more details on the new additions. Enjoy!

    Very OT but I have to ask (read: rant) about something. When will you release a Photoshop plugin that enables Typekit in PSD comps?

    Typekit has been an Adobe company for a year pretty soon and this really is a no-brainer. I honestly thought this would be available weeks after the acquisition.

    Much, much smaller company FontFont already has a Photoshop AND an Illustrator plugin available. Maybe you could just acquire them and call it a day?

    Sincerely,
    Paying customer

      Ola: This is something that we are exploring, as we know that our users would love to be able to use Typekit fonts when designing on the desktop. However, I can’t say when we will have something available.

      Thanks for sharing this feedback with us; you can also feel free to email support@typekit.com if you have comments or questions.


    • +1 well said Ola, also paying customer.
