Monotype Imaging, a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has added a self-hosting feature to its Fonts.com Web Fonts solution, enabling enterprises to host Web fonts using their existing servers or content delivery network.

“We’ve spoken to a number of companies who prefer the ability to control and deploy Web fonts themselves, just as they do with other Web assets,” said Chris Roberts, vice president of marketing at Monotype Imaging. “We listened, and today our professional-tier subscribers have the flexibility to work with fonts either in a self-hosted environment or through our existing hosted service. We’re firmly committed to providing the world’s most comprehensive, convenient and easy-to-use Web font solution.”

 
Imagine you’ve been tasked with delivering a design brief across multiple digital platforms. You’ve constructed a pristine template with evenly set grids and equally balanced guidelines. It looks perfect, but it only applies to print. How would it look on a mobile phone screen? You certainly can’t replicate it there. And what about the explosion in tablets? You quickly find it’s not as simple as you first thought. But you’re not alone – it turns out the ‘digital niggles’ associated with fonts are the most challenging aspect of digital design briefs today.

 
The relentless surge of digital and the proliferation of media platforms present a considerable new challenge for brand managers, designers and developers. Brands cannot ignore the opportunity offered by digital consumption, yet representing themselves on digital formats, reliably and consistently is a complex technological maze. The result is that, while purely digital players are now flourishing in the mobile app and web space, many organisations are experiencing difficulties in conveying their brand on digital platforms. The Brand Perfect Tour brings together expert developers, digital marketers and brand leaders to share knowledge and experience and help brands look flawless whatever the medium.

It is a timeless design and the first collaboration of two of Britain’s pillars of the typographic arts, Stanley Morison and Eric Gill.
