A new chapter for Typekit

We’ve reached a bittersweet moment at Typekit, with Jeff Veen — one of Typekit’s original founders — leaving his post as VP of Product at Adobe. We wish him the best of luck in his new position. It’s been an amazing ride and a great pleasure working together for the past five years.

Following Jeff’s departure, Typekit is moving under the leadership of Scott Belsky, Adobe’s VP of Product and the founder of Behance. We’ve greatly admired the work Scott’s done since joining Adobe with the Behance team, and we’re looking forward to working together in this next chapter.

Ever since Typekit joined Adobe over three years ago, we’ve only expanded and improved our service. We’ve kept our basic product as simple and approachable as we can while unobtrusively adding in more options: launching font syncing, so that you can get fonts right on your desktop; integrations with InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop; and most recently, launching new subsetting options for the fonts you use on your websites.

Even with Jeff moving on, we still hold the old Mission office in our minds whenever we talk about Typekit today. It’s unbelievable how far we’ve come since our early days — and with so many of our customers sticking with us all these years, it’s always been important to keep our standards high and our values consistent.

These values are going to be more on our minds than ever going forward, as we work closely with our Adobe colleagues to bring Typekit’s famous simplicity and ease of use to the next generation of connected creative services. We can’t thank you all enough for being part of Typekit so far. And big thanks to you especially, Jeff.
