Extensis WebINK Brings Live Web Fonts to CreativePro.com
|PORTLAND, Ore., December 7, 2010 — Extensis®, a division of Celartem Inc., today announced that CreativePro.com, the respected online resource for the creative community, has selected WebINK® web font service to present the highest quality typography on its Web site at www.creativepro.com“Ensuring that our Web site is progressive is critical to meeting our community’s expectations,” said Terri Stone, editor in chief of CreativePro.com. “WebINK allows us to continue to push the boundaries of design and deliver the same quality typography as seen in print. We believe this is the future of Web design.”
Until recently, Web designers for sites like CreativePro.com not only had limited choices of fonts available, but multiple legal and technical challenges. Extensis’ recent debut of WebINK breaks down these barriers, with access to more than 2,000 high-quality Web fonts from the most respected type foundries across the globe. With WebINK, Web designers simply indicate their chosen fonts directly in CSS with the @font-face tag and WebINK instantly delivers the right font for the right browser.
“Extensis is flattered to have CreativePro.com select WebINK as their web font service,” said Thomas Phinney, Senior Product Manager, Fonts & Typography at Extensis. “CreativePro.com is the news and information web site of choice for the same creative professionals who made our font management solutions the top choices for both desktop and client/server font management. Building on that legacy, we’re pleased to offer a Web-specific solution that not only enables breakthrough design for sites like CreativePro.com, but also creates brand consistency with offline materials, improves Web site accessibility, and enhances search engine optimization. These are keys to differentiation in today’s highly competitive online world.”
CreativePro.com has selected several new typefaces for its site, including ‘Cora Web’ designed by Bart Blubaugh and published by TypeTogether, one of the type foundries whose fonts are available through WebINK
“We are honored to have our typefaces selected by such a leading source in the design community,” said José Scaglione, co-founder of TypeTogether. “Our main interest is finding innovative and stylish solutions to old problems for the professional market of text typefaces. With WebINK, designers now have easy access to these latest innovations and can present cutting-edge Web designs.”
