2. custom fonts via adobe typekit

  1. 1. Solution Overview Using Adobe Typekit for Custom Brand Fonts Customers with their own custom or proprietary brand fonts can add use Adobe Typekit to deliver them in their web content using the same proven technology that powers web fonts on more than 1 million web sites. Custom Fonts are added to the Typekit library by the Typekit type team via our font import process. This process uses a range of proprietary tools to validate the font data and to produce the range of web font filetypes necessary to enable the Typekit solution to work in the browser. Once the fonts have been loaded into Typekit, they’ll appear in the library of any user who is authorized to access them. Only the users specifically authorized by our customer have access to their own custom brand fonts. In this screen shot, a custom font user is viewing the library that contains only a single custom font family, called “[Customer Name] Apex”. Please note that the customer name has been elided from this and other screen shots for confidentiality. If we have processed multiple custom font families for the customer, each of them would appear as a separate font here. On clicking on a tile that corresponds with a given family, the font family page loads, which shows all of the weight and style variations that are available in that particular family: Page 1
  2. 2. The Specimens tab shows an extended specimen of sample text which is loaded using the actual web font: Page 2
  3. 3. The Type Tester tool allows you to enter text and see, in real-time, how it would appear as a web font: And the Browser Samples tab allows you to see how each font variation actually renders on more than 30 OS/browser combinations: Page 3
  4. 4. The process of adding font families and variations to the Typekit library is performed by the Typekit type team. The production of optimized web font files is necessarily a manual one, and frequently requires the attention of a type designer or technologist in order to make minor enhancements or corrections. Our experience has shown that it is not possible to reliably produce web font files of an acceptable standard of quality via any automated or self-service process. Using Adobe Typekit for Custom Brand Fonts Typekit fonts are integrated into content using “kits.” A kit contains the specific combination of font weights and styles that are to be used on a given page or template. Customers build and create their own kits using the self-service tools on Typekit.com. Once a kit has been configured, the customer can “publish” it to make it live, so that it can be loaded on any page that the kit has been configured for. A kit can contain any combination of custom fonts as well as any other fonts from the Typekit library. With Typekit, there is no per-font charge, and there is no limit on the number of fonts that can be used by a customer. Once the kit has been created, our kit editor provides a line of Javascript code which, when inserted into the HEAD of your HTML page, causes the Typekit code to run and the web fonts to be delivered. The code looks like this: Page 4
  5. 5. <script type="text/javascript" src="http://use.typekit.com/ [ID].js">try{Typekit.load();}catch(e){} Where ID is replaced with the ID provided in the kit editor when the kit was created. Once this code has been loaded on a page, the page content can style any HTML text using the specified font family name, just as they would using any other web font or system font. Typekit customers are the only users with the capability to create or publish their own kits, and when the content that contains the kit embed code is published. This way, our customers are the only ones who control when changes to their kit configuration can take place. Adobe Typekit’s Content Protection for Custom Fonts The Typekit solution implements a number of measures for content protection to ensure that the fonts cannot be downloaded and used outside the browser, and to ensure that custom web fonts are used only by authorized parties. Our “Defense In Depth” strategy is described here: http://blog.typekit.com/2009/07/21/serving-and-protecting-fonts-on-the-web/ Enterprise Customer Support Adobe Typekit Enterprise includes unlimited access to our Enterprise Support team. 1. Support by Telephone: Enterprise customers can reach an Enterprise Customer Support representative directly by phone from 9 AM to 9 PM Eastern time on regular business days . 2.

Support is provided to all Typekit users - including vendors, partners, and agencies that represent our customers.
