Typekit is one of the best font services out there, but it feels a bit clunky to use. I had a go at what I'd do if I was designing it. Was a lot of fun making this!
Attached a full PNG and the PSD to have a play with. Enjoy!
P.S: Mr. Typekit, if you're reading this, you can totally use it.

Thanks for PSD :)
Okay, now here's a list of sites that need a redesign...
Great work as always!
Nice job! ( That panda sure has a fondness for gradients)
You sir are made of win!
Don't forget to leave room for "by Adobe"
Pretty nice, but I'm not a huge fan. Typekit have done an outstanding job of displaying a lot of information, and it just keeps on getting better. This feels a little like it's missing a lot of content. I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to pinpoint what exactly I don't like about it.
Least useful feedback ever.
This looks rather fresh!
@Dan Eden That was the entire reason I did this: it always feels like there's an information overload. I personally don't care about the foundry's backstory, and don't want to have to have to open the kit editor in a new window. This way, all the necessary information is in one page, and the extras are gone. Nice and streamlined. I get what you're saying, though.
Yes please! I think @Jason Santa Maria Is responsible for the current version. Personally, I think Typekit is due for a refresh.
Design wise it's really nice, but like @Dan Eden it just doesn't fit for me. I like the flatness they have at the moment as it helps place focus on the typography.
But as a way to view your collection, quickly adjust the type settings to get a better feeling for them, this is bloody lovely.
Nice work! I love the current site and wouldn't change it, but this one is really nice as it's own design. Keep up the awesome :)
I love it. I used Typekit for the first time a few weeks ago, and totally agree with you. It felt rather tedious to get everything set up.
Just a heads up, it's "Typekit", no camel case. :)
Amazing work dude...
y u no have sort filters? I like the inline 'kit' though. _blank for the lose.
oh, poor fox.
Very nice. :)
Can you send me your background wallpaper?
@Domenik Töfflinger It's in the PSD, just grab it from there!
@Visual Idiot Thanks. :)
I quickly compared your screenshot with the typekit UI, and all I see is some reorganization and addition of gradients/shadows. Would be great if you explained what you did there, especially on that awesome blog of yours!
@Sumit Paul It's not going on my blog. The thought behind it is two things: a visual exercise (I wanted to see what Typekit would look like if it wasn't flat) and an information architecture exercise (I wanted to see what it'd be like if it didn't have that damn popup window — I assume you haven't used Typekit before; if you had, you wouldn't like that). Was just a bit of fun, really.
i'm not a fan of green color on top, it doesn't fit with all layout imo other than that i quite like it!
