IT-Enquirer Selects Extensis’ WebINK to Present Highest Quality Typography on Web Site
|Northampton, UK, November 24, 2010 – Extensis®, a division of Celartem Inc., today announced that IT-Enquirer, recognized as one of the most important online information resources for cross media publishers, has selected the WebINK®web font service to present the highest-quality typography on its Web site.
“To be ahead of the pack in digital publishing, it is essential to test and implement the newest, most innovative technologies available today,” said Erik Vlietinck of IT-Enquirer. “WebINK allows us to make another leap forward by delivering the latest in typography and Web design to our community.”
Until recently, Web designers for sites like IT-Enquirer 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 select their typefaces, and integrate their selections directly in their site’s CSS using the @font-face tag. WebINK delivers the right font for the right browser. Web designers can improve Web site accessibility and enhance search engine optimization with WebINK, both keys to differentiation in today’s highly competitive online world. WebINK also unlocks the same potential in Web design as traditionally seen in print publishing through its vast font library.
“As publishing is evolving and organizations face the challenge of maintaining a consistent brand presence, having a service that includes extensive font options available is critical,” said Thomas Phinney, Senior Product Manager, Fonts & Typography at Extensis. “IT-Enquirer is a leading edge source for IT, creative and publishing professionals who utilize and review the latest in technology and publishing. We are honored IT-Enquirer has selected WebINK to deliver the best Web typography to their readers.”
IT-Enquirer has selected several new typefaces for its site, including Proxima Nova for the headlines and Criterion for the body copy. Both web fonts from the reputable URW++ Type Foundry are available for use from WebINK.
