Typekit

Today I took the time to start investigating Typekit and found it was an absolute joy. In the past I’ve found typography in website design very frustrating because there is such a limited number of typefaces one can safely use. Now with the rise in popularity of Typekit and other providers, together with advances in CSS, it is possible to present type just as beautifully on the internet as it is on paper. I suppose I’m most excited that this will mean the rise in the profile of the designer, whose job it is to take these tools and create some smashing new work. I’ll never be ashamed to show my typeface in public again.
