Webfonts Week: An Interview with Bryan Mason of Typekit
This year's ATypI's gathering, deemed Typ09, was clearly different from previous years for many reasons. First, Mexico City provided a vibrant, new world backdrop for a conference that is usually held in Europe. Second, the main program was held on a single track in a presentation hall that is anything but conventional. But most palpable was the feeling among all attendees that the way fonts are licensed and used is about to change forever. 2009 will be remembered as the year that introduced tenable standards and methods for using non-system fonts on the Web.
During the conference I sat down with some of the key players who are leading the way as we head into the brave new world of web typography. Those video interviews will appear here on The FontFeed all week.
Our first installment is with Bryan Mason, whose soon-to-launch [update: just launched Nov. 10] Typekit service offers an innovative model in which subscribers pay a monthly fee for access to a library of embeddable fonts, as well as a simple, intuitive method for including them on a website.
