Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding fonts to kits, part of Typekit Quick Start.
- Once you've decided on the fonts…you want to use for your project,…you need to tell Typekit that you want to use them.…Now the process of doing that…is a little different for desktop…versus for using the font as a web font.…Since we're going to cover the process of using…Typekit fonts for desktop a little later on,…we're going to focus first…on using Typekit fonts for web.…The first thing that you'll need to do…in order to use Typekit fonts on your website…is to create a kit.…We talked a little about kits earlier in this chapter…but we haven't created one yet,…so that's going to be our first step.…
I'm going to go right up to the menu up here…and we've got this little menu option for Kits…and the first that we'll do is create a brand new kit.…Now, this is going to open up the kit editor…and the first thing it's going to want from us…is a name for the kit…and the domains that it needs to serve.…Now the name can be anything you want it to be.…Usually you to want something…that's going to be fairly representative…
