Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Adobe's TypeKit service, part of Illustrator for Web Design: Aesthetics.
- In the previous movie, I talked a little bit…about web-safe typography,…and basically what that means is,…you're stuck with whatever the browser can display,…and that's limited based on who's viewing it,…what their operating system is,…what version of the browser they're using, et cetera.…So we want to be able to get around that…and extend the capabilities of the browser,…and one of the best ways to do that is…through the integrated Adobe Creative Cloud service…called Typekit.…Typekit actually works both on the desktop and the web.…As a matter of fact, Typekit was a web service…before it ever was a desktop font service.…
So in this movie I'm going to show you how to use that…to your advantage when you're creating web design mockups.…So the first thing that I want to do,…is just select the Type Tool here inside of Illustrator.…You don't have to have anything selected…out on your artboard.…Just grab the Type Tool from over here in the tools panel.…Once you have the Type Tool selected,…go right up in your control panel…
