Theresa’s Tips: Roll Call

You may be familiar with FontShop, but do you know about all the other sites that we’re connected with? If not, then here’s a brief introduction to them.

The FontFeed is a daily dispatch of recommended fonts, typography techniques, and inspirational examples of digital type at work in the real world. Eat up.

FontFont, our foundry, is the world’s largest library of original contemporary typefaces, such as FF DIN and FF Meta.

FontFonter is a web tool that allows you to render Web FontFonts on any website. Basically allowing you to test out a webfont on your site instantly, which is perfect when you want to show your client what their site could look like in a different typeface.

Subsetter is another great tool that helps you decrease the size of a Web FontFont. In three easy steps, you can optimize your Web FontFont at no cost to you. Read more here.

The latest addition is Mobile FontFonts and if you’re building an iOS App then you should start by checking these faces out.

Also, TYPO San Francisco will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), April 5-6, 2012 centering around the theme Connect. So head on over to TYPO Talks for a taste of what to expect.
