Featured partner: About.me

About.me provides its users with a custom splash page and personal analytics dashboard. Users can customize their profile with their own photo and colors — and they can choose from a number of fonts, served via Typekit. We worked closely with About.me to integrate Typekit, and the result is wonderfully easy to use: just point and click using the built-in font menu, and we do all the rest.

The built-in font menu makes adding fonts to your splash page quick and easy.

The result: each about.me page is uniquely compelling, while remaining clear and effective.

    Do you think you guys will be releasing more behind-the-scenes info as to the integration with about.me?

    We’re interested in the technical aspects of integrating our web apps (as well as the sites & stores users build with our apps) too – exactly what the ‘close work’ entailed, and any tips, tricks & best practices that emerged from this project.

    It’s good to see such apps hitting the market, and it’s good to hear that Typekit is so involved.
