Web Fonts' Additions Offer Fresh Inspiration for Website Design

Monotype Imaging Adds 10 Collections and Over 900 Web Fonts to Web Fonts

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc., a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has expanded Web Fonts with the addition of over 900 fonts, including collections from 10 typeface foundries new to the site and new designs from the company's Monotype®, Linotype® and ITC® libraries. More than 12,000 Web fonts are now available from Monotype Imaging's Web font service.

"We're continually widening our range as part of our commitment to offering the world's best and biggest selection of Web fonts," said Chris Roberts, vice president and general manager of e-commerce at Monotype Imaging.

New foundry collections offer diversity that spans a wide range of Web design possibilities. The Calligraphics collection from Paul Veres features the Gargoyle™ family, an informal, friendly typeface. MyChristie from Christie Podioti brings the Noisetoy™ font, an experimental, art deco design. PeGGO Fonts, the foundry of Pedro González, features the Legan™ typeface, a Trajan®-inspired design, and the PintassilgoPrints foundry, with the works of Ricardo Marcin and Erica Jung, offers handwriting fonts including the condensed, casual Amarelinha™ design. The Sardiez foundry from Sergio Ramírez brings the futuristic Systopie™ family, and Suomi, the foundry of Tomi Haaparanta, offers the round, yet narrow Titillation™ face. Grummedia, featuring the designs of Graham Blakelock, includes the Fifteen 36™ face, inspired by 16th century Italian texts. Ray Cruz brings the curvaceous Bandolera™ display face, and Boover Software rounds out the new foundry collections with a series of fraction fonts. Web Fonts has also been expanded with designs from Monotype Imaging's own foundry offerings. Additions from the Monotype collection include the Augusta™ family, a calligraphic design by Julius de Goede. New Linotype offerings include the Helvetica® monospaced family from the popular Helvetica suite, in addition to the Cyrillic version of the Neue Frutiger® design and an Arabic version of the DIN Next™ face. New from ITC is the ITC Adderville™ typeface, a sans serif design created by Monotype Imaging's George Ryan.
