Looking good! What does ScreenSmart mean?
So glad you asked:
Dayum! Look at Mercury shine at that small pixel size.
What @matt said, it's amazing! Now to find a web design client who will let me include a budget for webfonts...
Subscriptions start at $99, and let you include as many domains as you want. More, here: http://www.typography.com/cloud/pricing/
Great work Jonathan, interesting to see how much has to go into revamping these all for the web.
Whitney on the promo pages is just stunning. I'm so happy you took your time with this project, the results are to die for. Really, really loving how it all came out. Bravo to all of you.
Email received! (Nicely done on that.)
Wow, this is fantastic!
I think we broke some records with the turnaround time on this email.
"Not just fonts on the web, fonts for the web"
I like this.
@Joseph Alessio Start with yourself ;)
@Jonathan I agree, these do look great. Out of curiosity, why did the team decide to go with this technology instead of redesigning them for the web similar to what Webtype has done? And as you know, Webtype has some really wonderful quality webfonts. One of the best I've seen.
wow! you guys are really nailing it. I was wondering why it was taking you so long to offer web fonts, but this was definitely worth the wait! Please correct me if I misunderstood, but are you actually serving a slightly different font file to different browser / os pairs?
@Jonathan Hoefler Is there any support offered? I can't seem to get fonts working locally on my machine. Is there anyway I can debug this? Cheers! :)
@Chris Good advice 8) I'm definitely due for an update anyhow
Pretty exciting! Though.. Will they look this good on Windows and Linux browsers?
@Juani Ruiz Echazú, they're actually _better_ on Windows, because they're "hinted." Here are some screenshots: check them out! http://www.typography.com/cloud/the-fonts/#ssm-render-quality
@Victor Ivanov, we are indeed serving different fonts to each environment.
@Chris Burton, what we're doing with ScreenSmart fonts is very much what Font Bureau's done with the Webtype RE series, in that we've redesigned the fonts for the screen (rather than just painting them with hints.) One important difference though is that the ScreenSmart fonts all contain full families, where the RE fonts appear to be just regular and bold. Another distinction is that ScreenSmart fonts have full character sets (small caps, multiple figure sets, etc), all of which Cloud.typography delivers to all browsers.
@Liam McCabe, Feel free to drop us a line at email@example.com if there's anything you need.
@Jonathan Don't forget they have italic styles as well. Ha. Not to mention, the only way to get other styles is if you personally commission them. Really not ideal. The quality they bring is hard to make me want to switch. Webtype makes it easy to test before committing yourself to their service too. Something I hope you guys implement in the near future.
We're working on some stuff I think you'll like; been keeping tabs on your thoughts on Twitter. Stay tuned!
