With FontShop Plugin for Adobe InDesign You Can Now Try 150,000 Fonts in Creative Suite

With the addition of Adobe® InDesign® support, the FontShop Plugin now works in all of the most popular Adobe® Creative Suite® programs. At FontShop, we believe that at the heart of great graphic design is great typography. So in thinking how to get more and better type into the hands of great designers everywhere, we came up with a way to let them test out new typefaces from inside a familiar workflow.

Choose from the majority of the 150,000 fonts we carry (new fonts arriving weekly) directly from Adobe® Photoshop®, Illustrator®, and now InDesign. Use the FontShop Plugin to create comps, mockups, or to otherwise put type through its paces, free. After giving them a try, the plugin makes it easy to buy just what you need.

FF Chartwell Fever is Off the Charts

We here at FontShop have been pretty stoked about FF Chartwell since it came to us through FontFont’s May release. Over the summer, David showed you how to use the seven different styles of charts in Travis Kochel’s font and we hope you’ve had fun trying it out.

We couldn’t be more thrilled that the rest of the web has caught FF Chartwell fever. Check out these recent stories:

FastCompany

BoingBoing

Cool Hunting

Daring Fireball

A little bird tells us that the “web” of FF Chartwell uses is expanding quite soon as well…stay tuned!
