    Adobe Typekit allows designers to use fonts of a certain quality for their projects, only through subscription to the library, and choosing the package that you prefer (it is more than a thousand fonts!).
    If you are a member of the Adobe Creative Cloud, you have access to a basic version of Typekit, and you can use the fonts for free. Depending on the project you wish to design, you can choose many different licenses: it all depends on the use you want for the front. A very important thing is that you have freedom of choice between a lot of fonts designed by expert type designers, while in other online services you can see a big difference, being them poor quality fonts. In addition, by synchronizing with the Adobe Creative Cloud, you can have it all at your fingertips in no time, without any loss of time with various installations.

    Pros :

    • Fonts can be used on your clients' websites, or they can be synchronized through Adobe Creative Cloud applications on your computers.
    • The interface is very good, and it allows you to find the font you most want in a few small, simple steps, without wasting time.
    • Adobe Typekit has maybe the best quality fonts just because they are designed by experts.
    • It's very easy to use the fonts you prefer: you just need to choose all of the fonts you want, and they are instantly installed in your software.

    Cons :

    • If you chose to take the trial version, you have a very limited choice of fonts.
    • These fonts are available only for the web, and if by chance you need to print your projects, you will need to purchase the license for this purpose in each case. In this sense, I think Google Fonts is better.
    • I think Google Fonts is better also for the price, for those who have not subscribed to Adobe Creative Cloud yet.

    Although the Adobe Typekit is available as a separate foundry and has long been known as a source of fonts for use on the web, print and motion mediums, I am an Adobe Creative Cloud user and thus, will speak directly about Typekit's Creative Cloud implementation.

    Containing over 700 font families, Adobe Typekit is a vital part of what makes a Creative Cloud (CC) subscription make sense at the end of the day. Giving access to Professional design fonts, at the touch of a button and making them usable in web design applications such as Muse and Dreamweaver in order to invigorate web pages with fresh designs and layouts.

    Typekit can be accessed by the subscribers online cloud page, inside CC applications and finally through the CC desktop application. Choosing Assets then the Fonts tab gives you an overview of the Typekit fonts already installed with a Manage Fonts button or an Add Fonts from Typekit button on the left. Choosing the Add Fonts button takes you to online Typekit application.

    The opening screen on the left shows your library of fonts based across your CC subscription (whereas the desktop app just showed your fonts on that workstation) you can load in sample text to see your fonts in action and you can sort by name, newest to oldest and featured. A dark grey dialog box on the right allows one to choose fonts based on class, properties (width, Caps only, weight) or by recommendation (Usable for headlines or paragraphs) To add fonts, start by choosing their preview chip. The font lets you know if it is available as a web or desktop (sync) install or both. That's it, the font is available to use. Have a Favorite font? You can add it to your favorites or create a type Kit.

    What to apply your favorite fonts to a website? Simply create a Kit, identify your web domains and that's it. The site uses the fonts in your browser.

    In the end, TypeKit gives designers, artist and content creators access to a vast library of typefaces, quickly, cheaply with the ability to unify designs across platforms.

    Pros :

    • Free for Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers.
    • Great interface which allows easy browsing and installation.
    • Fonts can be stored in Libraries and shared to workgroups.
    • Access to high-quality fonts without endless searching.
    • Usable on Business Catalyst and Portfolio Web Sites.
    • Syncs across your Adobe Cloud and Desktop, allowing you to use the fonts in all applications.
    • Huge library of Typefaces to choose from.

    Cons :

    • Pricey (non-Cloud subscribers) compared to Google Fonts.
    • Browser compatibility issues.

    I love the option to download more fonts to add to my library! It allows me to quickly get new fonts and have them across the board in all of my Adobe Creative Cloud programs! One click to "download" the font and it is in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, etc...for me to use!

    Pros :

    • The program is easy to use and quick to download and have the font in your system ready to go! There is not a single font in Typekit that I already have so it makes it nice to add a new one when I need one. It’s fast and easy to do and syncs effortlessly throughout all of my Creative Cloud programs. The other great aspect is that the font does not need to be downloaded and stored on your computer anywhere. It is available through the cloud and so you do not need to add it to your Fonts in your control panel. This means that you have more space on your hard drive and do not need to worry about fonts taking up too much of your memory.

      andnbsp;

    Cons :

    • Some of the fonts are not transferable. If you use a font that a printer does not have or if they do not have CC, you are not able to send it to them. I wish that the cloud was able to transfer the files of the fonts in order to share them with a printer. I have had to find a comparable font online to download in order to send a file to print, in using Typekit for a project in the past.

    Adobe developed Typekit to bring a substantial amount of fonts from different foundries all into one centralized library. This software is based on a subscription model with many different packages or plans that will suit your needs as well as your budget.andnbsp; andnbsp;

    Pros :

    • Being a premium member of the Creative Cloud suite grants you access to a basic version of Typekit. This first package has many and various fonts already included free to use.
    • The free version is a good package of web fonts if you plan on using them on a small website with low traffic.
    • If you know that the traffic will be heavy you will need to opt in for a higher tier paid plan. There are many different plans available to suit your needs.
    • I would say pricing is adequate as in not too expensive and also not too cheap. If you use the Adobe fonts for a site that has a lot of traffic expect to spend up to $400/month.
    • Typekit features great quality fonts that are professionally designed, not low-quality material found on random free font websites.
    • The fonts also provided respect all the new standards in the industry.
    • The web interface where you manage and find new fonts is excellent. It allows you to easily find new typefaces with a good research tool and also to test them and have a good idea of what they would look like.

    Cons :

    • Choices of fonts are quite limited in the free version. You are only allowed 1 website and just a small selection of fonts. You do not own the fonts, you are basically just renting them for your use. If you need the font for a printed piece, you will still need to purchase the said font at full price. There are good alternatives that are free and offer more features, namely Google Fonts.
