Extensis Delivers Renowned Adobe Font Collection to the Web

PORTLAND, Ore — March 29, 2011 — Extensis® today announced that the company is collaborating with Adobe® to deliver world-recognized typefaces to the Web with its WebINK® web font service. Adobe has been a leader in type design and technology for over twenty-five years and their collection of web fonts has been hand-engineered for optimal performance on any screen.

Beginning today, over 180 Adobe fonts are available on WebINK, including some of their most recognized type families. Myriad Pro, Adobe Garamond Pro, and Chaparral Pro are just a few of the families available as Adobe Web Fonts. This means that companies around the globe—thousands of which leverage Adobe fonts daily for their brand communications—can now deliver brand-consistent content on the web that is easily editable and searchable.

“Extensis sees how the future of Web design is shifting and continues to be a leading innovator in the space,” said Osamu Ikeda, President and CEO of Extensis’ parent company, Celartem Technology. “The collaboration is great news for developers on the cutting edge of Web design. It has never been easier to bring Adobe-quality type straight to your web site.”

“Extensis WebINK makes web site development and design easy, and integration with Suitcase Fusion 3 is a great feature for designers,” said Caleb Belohlavek, principal product manager for Type Development at Adobe. “We’re excited to collaborate with Extensis to provide customers with high-quality Adobe type for the web.”

Until recently, web browser and font license limitations have constrained Web developers to using only a handful of typefaces in their web designs. Extensis’ recent debut of WebINK breaks down these barriers, instantly delivering custom fonts straight to web browsers using WebINK’s global network. With WebINK, Web designers simply indicate their chosen fonts using the @font-face rule in CSS. Developers can now choose from a huge array of fonts and quickly reference them within the site’s HTML code.
