Four New Foundries join Typekit
What better way to spend a Friday than trying out new fonts on Typekit? We’ve got great additions to the library from independent designers from all over the world. All Typekit users have new fonts to work with today, as we’ve added new typefaces to the every level of service.
Suitcase Type Foundry is an independent type foundry, founded by Tomas Brousil in 2003 in Prague, Czech Republic. They specialize in the design and digitization of quality fonts for professional use. Apart from retail type, they also produce custom typefaces for corporate use and other specific purposes on commission. The fonts in their library have been designed with utmost care and are meticulously kerned and hinted. Typekit subscribers can start using fonts like Purista, Kulturista, and RePublic.
League of Movable Type is the first free and open-source type foundry, made up of a hand-selected group of typographers interested in propelling the movement into the professional playing field. By doing so they hope to do more than offer a free set of high-quality fonts, they hope to revolutionize web typography altogether. All the fonts from the League of Movable Type are in the Trial library, so anyone can use them.
psType is an independent digital type lab based in Southern California. Founded in 2008 by Mark Caneso, psType acts as the typographic side of pprwrk studio. Mark has included Ratio in the Typekit library.
Rui Abreu is a Portuguese type and graphic designer. He studied Graphic Design at FBAUP (Faculdade de Belas Artes da Universidade do Porto), where he graduated in 2003. In parallel with his interactive media designer job, Rui Abreu has been working on commercial fonts since 2006. He is adding Gesta to the Typekit library.
