New typography for Inspirationspam

New on my blog is the typography I’m using. It’s generated by a new plug-in: Typekit, witch can be used either on a Worpress blog or on any other type of website.
Typekit is an easie way to use real fonts on the web. It’s a subscription-based service for linking to Open Type fonts from some of the major type foundries. The fonts are served from a global network on redundant servers.


Every major browser now supports the ability to link to a font. That means you can write a bit of CSS, include a URL to a font file, and have your page display with the typography you expect. For designers and developers, this is a significant step forward. No longer will you need to trap your content in images or Flash. But Fonts have copyrights.
And that’s where Typekit comes in. They’ve developed a web-only font linking license with the major type foundry’s. And they’ve build the technology platform to host free and commercial fonts.

Inspirationspam is now using the VERA SANS by Bitstream as bodytype…

… and LFT ETICA DISPLAY WEB by TypeTogether for the headings.

It shows a collection of the best interactive features designed to inspire conversation about how to apply storytelling techniques to the advertising process.
