  • Font loading update: All HTTPS, all the time

    If you opened up the kit editor today, you may have noticed that the default and advanced embed codes have changed. Instead of the protocol-less URL we recommended for years, we now recommend a HTTPS URL only. We’ve also changed our kit JavaScript to load all resources over HTTPS. We’re updating the protocol-less embed code (top) with HTTPS by default (lower). We’ve made this change as a response to the recent vulnerabilities and exploits in the OpenType and TrueType font formats. A malicious attacker could use these vulnerabilities to modify a Typekit font while it is being…

    If the women I spoke with were candid about their experiences with sexism, they were equally intent on relaying their positive experiences in the type community — and on giving credit where credit is due. Zeynep Akay I would like to give a shout-out to Gerry Leonidas; his help, guidance, and wisdom have been invaluable in bringing me where I am today.

  • WOFF2 support added to Typekit

    Bram Stein
    26 Aug 2015 | 8:53 am
    As part of our ongoing work on improving our web font serving performance, we’re adding support for the WOFF2 font format. The WOFF2 format succeeds the ubiquitous WOFF format and offers better compression than any other font format. Before adopting WOFF2, we’ve extensively tested it on our font library and have seen significant compression gains over WOFF. On average, WOFF2 compresses 30% better than WOFF. The improved compression rates mean smaller font files, which in turn result in faster-loading fonts. Most fonts on Typekit are about 30% smaller with WOFF2 compression, compared to…

    New fonts! New foundries! We are happy to welcome Fort Foundry and Regular Bold Italic to the Typekit library, with over 10 families now available for web and sync use. Fort Foundry With his motto “Never quit building,” Mattox Shuler brings his childhood love of building forts to his passion for the craft of type design. Most of his typefaces have a retro display style, with inspiration ranging from wartime posters and 1960’s cars to bottle labels. Despite their distinctive character, these typefaces are versatile when put in different contexts, lending bold, clean lines to any design.

  • Type Women Talk: Experiences with Sexism

    Dyana Weissman
    14 Aug 2015 | 1:24 pm
    Speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic, women told me about their experiences with sexism in the type community, either in the workplace or at conferences. Objectification I took a workshop at a conference a couple years ago, where the instructor started his class by establishing parallelisms between his “beautiful” work and “sexy ladies” (images included). While most of the class seemed to be enjoying themselves, and actually cracking up at a few of the “jokes,” I on the other hand was puzzled. I could really see no point to his remarks or why…
  • Women’s Voices in Type, On- and Offstage, Part Two

    Dyana Weissman
    14 Aug 2015 | 1:24 pm
    In Part One, I talked about the ineffectiveness of shame. We still need to talk about the causes of the problem so we can focus on solutions. As much as society affects us, everything we do affects society. If we lived in a truly equal society, it would mean everyone would compromise. Therefore the onus is on everyone to make a difference. Just having more women speakers [would help], which would in turn make it seem more viable for other female designers to take a chance and try to take part, but this is a bit of a chicken and egg situation. —Aoife Mooney Unconscious favoritism There’s a…

    Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy night. A few weeks ago, Lila Symons observed: “I just looked at the main conference schedule for @typecon and barely any women are speaking. Seriously, what’s up with that?!” What followed was a discussion on sexism in the industry. In 140-character increments, the conversation covered lots of ground — and yet it only scratched the surface. After thirteen years in this industry, I’ve given considerable thought to how women are treated and perceived. I’ve always wanted to know what my peers really think about…
  • Sexism & Fonts

    “Mom, what’s a sexy lady?” My five-year-old son asked me this question the day Positype released its promotional site for Lust Hedonist. The Lust Series, a self-described “overly indulgent attempt to infuse wanton sensuality in a typeface,” features a variety of formal contrasts: sharp and curvy serifs, thin counters combined with thick bodies. It is the work of Neil Summerour, known for his crowd-pleasing fonts and lettering, and it is striking. The first styles of Lust, released three years ago, were featured in Typographica’s “Favorite Typefaces of 2012”. So what’s not to…

    Jean François Porchez
    4 Sep 2015 | 9:18 am
    Cette évolution est typique de ces petites start-ups devenues des géantes. Au moment de leur création, les logos de Google et de Facebook ont été conçus “dans le garage”, comme le reste. Il n’y a pas de référentiel pour les pionniers. Google a toujours su jouer avec son logo au fil des événements. Certaines start-ups utilisent des caractères typographiques qui donnent l’impression d’être écrites à la main, pour se donner une image sympa et être bien identifiables. Google n’en a pas besoin: la société est désormais partout. Elle a acquis un tel poids aujourd’hui…

    Roberto Blake
    4 Sep 2015 | 7:10 am
    Many creative professionals tend to be introverted. Often they feel this is holding them back in their career and business aspirations. If this describes you, then you may feel that your contemporaries who are more extroverted may have it easier than you, despite the fact you may work just as hard—or harder. As a creative professional, often your job is to present your employer or client in the best light possible. To put them in a position to market themselves effectively. Being introverted doesn’t mean you lack the skills or mentality necessary to promote yourself effectively, it…

  • TypeTalk: Designing with Lead-ins

    Ilene Strizver
    2 Sep 2015 | 6:48 am
    There are a number of typographic techniques that can help to draw attention to the content of an article, a book, a web page, or any important text. The use of a lead-in is one of them. A lead-in is the setting of the beginning of text in a different style or manner from that which follows it. Lead-ins can be used in conjunction with initial letters or symbols, or entirely on their own. They are commonly used in magazines, journals, brochures, annual reports, books and chapters, but can also be effective when used in announcements, advertisements, and web sites. This technique not only helps…

    Recently on TypeDrawers, a question was asked about how the Indian rupee symbol is being utilized in casual handwriting in the wild. After about a year in India, I have indeed seen it written by hand, but not very often at all. After skimming through my 16,000+ photos from India from the last 3 years, I’ve found only one lonely image containing a handmade ₹. But as I was searching through the images I came up with a few theories as to why there are so few handmade rupee symbols out there.

Most of the tombstones are from the mid to late 1800s and are in various states of preservation. Every (older) cemetery is unique and this one is exceptional due to its bold typographic treatments and variety of letter styles. Also unique is that many of the people have reference to where they have came from – I can only assume they were newly immigrated to the US. And while I am generally only ever focusing on the letters in my cemetery photos, it’s…

    Monotype had been working with Crispin Porter + Bogusky on licensing the Trade Gothic family, used brand-wide along side the custom Pizza Press fonts for Domino’s Pizza. They had designed illustrations of decorated letters, and needed them to be in font format to help speed up design production and generally make life easier. Terrance Weinzierl, […]

  • Wonk: The Modular Alphabet by David Karwan

    In Mr. (Jeff) Keedy's digital type design class at CalArts evolved a ornament system project which morphed into his “thesis” project. Wonk is a mix of 2 and 3D geometric and biomorphic forms generated to create surprising patterns. Spontaneous or controlled, this modular typeface enables a user to construct various simple or complex shapes into letterforms. Conceptually, this font is a type treatment that both subverts a kit-of-parts and subverts parts into a kit.

    This is the 19th installment of my monthly feature on Typewolf where I share my favorite type-driven websites from the previous month and then write a little about the typographic details behind the designs. You can check out last month’s post for July here. Red Bull Music Academy Portrait is a serif from Commercial Type that is based off Renaissance forms but with added sharp, triangular serifs. This helps to give the “daily” subsection of the Red Bull Music Academy site a much more classic feel than the main site which feels very modern with its prominent use of the…

    This is the 18th installment of my monthly feature on Typewolf where I share my favorite type-driven websites from the previous month and then write a little about the typographic details behind the designs. You can check out last month’s post for June here. Margaux Le Pierrès Burgess is a serif typeface from Colophon Foundry that is based loosely off Times New Roman so it has a comforting sense of familiarity to it. Founders Grotesk from Klim Type Foundry is used for auxiliary text and makes a nice combo with Burgess as grotesques usually pair well with transitional faces. I think the…

    This is the 17th installment of my monthly feature on Typewolf where I share my favorite type-driven websites from the previous month and then write a little about the typographic details behind the designs. You can check out last month’s post for May here. Mister French The type on this site is spaced rather loosely with added letterspacing — I think this touch helps give off an easy-breezy feel that matches the laidback aesthetic of the Mister French brand. Apercu and the heavy, poster style of Stanley make for a unique pairing, especially when the two typefaces are combined in…

    This is the 16th installment of my monthly feature on Typewolf where I share my favorite type-driven websites from the previous month and then write a little about the typographic details behind the designs. You can check out last month’s post for April here. Not To Scale I think this site is interesting in that it uses two typefaces from Hoefler & Co, Quarto and Mercury, but the third typeface, Akkurat, is from Lineto. It made me realize that what’s missing from the H&Co catalog is a design in the DIN meets Univers style. That style of typeface seems to be growing in…

    This is the 15th installment of my monthly feature on Typewolf where I share my favorite type-driven websites from the previous month and then write a little about the typographic details behind the designs. You can check out last month’s post for March here. Matthew Galloway GT Sectra is surprisingly versatile for a calligraphy-inspired typeface — at larger sizes the display version shows off fine details derived from a broad nib pen but at smaller sizes the book style cuts back on the contrast, making a perfectly readable text face. Matthew did a great job setting the body copy…
