Typecast is a powerful, browser-based design app that takes the pain out of designing with Web fonts. It lets you view, pair and compare Web fonts in the browser on full-length text without having to create screenshots, assemble comps or hand-code your CSS. Sliders, drop menus and simple inputs make it easy to set text in precise detail, and because you’re designing in the browser, you’re able see changes in real time and make better, faster decisions about quality, style and rendering.

As you design, standards-compliant HTML and CSS is produced behind the scenes, allowing you to quickly share Web-ready designs with developer colleagues and get more accurate prototypes in return. In the video below, Typecast’s Creative Director Jamie Neely offers you a look at the app in action:

Typecast + Fonts.com Web Fonts: the perfect type pairing

Best of all, Fonts.com and Typecast work great together. You can design with every one of our 20,000 Web fonts in Typecast. Your Fonts.com account is linked to Typecast, so getting your design’s Web fonts onto your website is simple. When you’re ready to export your designs and start prototyping, Typecast will determine which fonts to serve up and provide an embed code that includes them. Going forward, you can continue to use Typecast to manage the font selections in your projects.

We want to play a part in reshaping typography on the Web, and feel this combination will help you make sound typographic decisions and refinements with the Fonts.com typefaces you know and love. To our new and current subscribers, we hope you enjoy Typecast. We sincerely believe it will help you create far better designs. We also believe it makes Fonts.com Web Fonts a far better offering and remain committed to growing these plans  with additional great services like Typecast as your needs evolve.
