New on Typekit: Heading back to school with more fonts

Just in time to get you sorted for a new school year, we’ve got more fonts in the library!

Active from Adam Ladd

New fonts from Adam Ladd

Adam Ladd’s eye for graphic design is clear in the fonts he’s designed, and we’re excited to add these to our collection. For designs that might otherwise feel a little flat, Active adds a visual texture and contains plenty of alternate character styles to play with.

Braisetto from Adam Ladd

For a more personal touch than bold Active, try the gentle script Braisetto. This one stands up on its own, especially for packaging and branding uses, but can also be paired with bolder fonts to add a warm contrast. We’ve got two weights of this to work with, too.

See everything we’ve added from Adam Ladd on his foundry page.

Source Serif with italics

Source Serif Italics

The long awaited Italic complement to our popular Source Serif by Frank Grießhammer. Why were the italics released four years after the upright style? See Frank’s blog post where he walks through the design process. Source Serif is available open source on GitHub as well.

Reross by Elia Preuss

Rounding out Hidden Treasures with Reross

The Hidden Treasures of the Bauhaus Dessau collection is now complete with all five typefaces available for you to use. If you need an excuse to try them out, the design challenge is open until September 9.

Monotype font collage

Hundreds more from Monotype

We’re still reeling from this, to be honest — we added over 600 new fonts from Monotype to our library last month. In our roundup we walked through a few of the highlights, but there wasn’t time or space to give all the fonts their due recognition. You may recognize quite a few classics in there! Check out the Monotype foundry page for the full rundown.

Fonts from Kinuta and SkillS

New foundry partners, new Japanese fonts

Our freshest news comes at the end — just this week we welcomed two new Japanese foundry partners to Typekit. Learn more about Kinuta Font Factory and Skill Information”S” in our blog post, or go directly to the foundry pages to check out the new fonts.

  2. I love this blog, and Typekit is so useful for my work as a Web Master and also for passion about photography where I love to use beautiful Font on my photos for editorial purpose…
    Thank you.
