Typography Insight with Adobe Typekit

Typography Insight + Adobe Typekit

I am excited to announce that Typography Insight for iPad/iPhone now supports Adobe Typekit®. Thanks to Adobe Creative SDK, you can access thousands of fonts from Adobe Typekit by signing in with Adobe ID. Can’t wait to see how design students, educators, and professionals start leveraging Typekit’s rich library for learning, teaching and researching types. The update is available on iOS App Store now.

About Typography Insight

Typography Insight is a toolkit for experiencing, learning & teaching typography. It was published on iOS about five years ago and embraced by the design and education communities. Last year, I brought this app to Windows and HoloLens.
