I’m pleased to announce a collection of typefaces specifically crafted for high-quality e-reading experiences, particularly for content displayed at smaller text sizes.

Intended for Web and digital content publishers and device manufacturers, the suite offers some of the most widely used typefaces traditionally used for print that have been designed and tuned for ease of readability and optimized performance on the Web and across devices. Classics like the Monotype Baskerville, ITC Galliard and Sabon designs were redrawn to improve their readability in various screen environments.

Our typeface designers worked to impart a richer contrast, an even color and slightly taller lowercase characters, all while ensuring that the typefaces appear as unmistakable cousins of their original print designs. The designs also include small caps and old style figures for professional-quality publishing design. These typefaces are available now through our Fonts.com Web Fonts subscribers for use on the Web.

eText Fonts

All typefaces in the collection have also been hand-hinted to display as clearly as possible across mobile devices from smartphones to tablets and e-readers. For device manufacturers, these fonts also take advantage of Monotype’s Edge™ tuning technology, enabling publishers to create and deliver high-quality, readable text across your device platforms and formats, including E Ink screens. The fonts look and perform best with devices that use Monotype’s iType font engine.

We intend to release more  fonts on an ongoing basis as part of our Monotype Portfolio for Digital Publishing, one of our value-added suites of typefaces and technologies designed to meet the requirements of customers in specific market segments. Our Monotype Portfolio for Digital Publishing addresses the needs of customers who are developing and delivering content for immersive reading on e-readers, tablets and other devices.

Our initial offering includes these popular designs:

Amasis eText (4 weights)

ITC Galliard eText  (4 weights)

Neue Helvetica eText (4 weights)

Palatino eText (4 weights)

With over 20 million active users, Spotify is an emerging leader in the field of streaming music services. With a robust collection of companion apps available, Spotify music can also be accessed through a litany of digital devices — from computers, to smartphones, to tablets.

The Spotify website features utilizes Linotype’s Neue Helvetica typeface family quite extensively — the site’s navigation is set small in the stout, bold weight of the design, while body text is set in the extremely legible light style.

Customer Spotlight: Spotify

The site employs visually impressive parallax scrolling — full screen photographs contrast nicely when alternated with quiet swaths of white space and nicely set type.

Headlines set the thin weight of the Neue Helvetica family provides a nice balance of scale and proportion in relation to the other type elements on the site. Additionally, setting the headlines in a bright lime green reveals that even supposedly humorless neo-grotesque typefaces can, indeed, possess a more ebullient spirit.

The Neue Helvetica family is an indispensable tool for all designers, and is available in over 50 styles — from ultra light to black weights, as well as regular, condensed, and extended widths.

The Neue Helvetica collection is available through the Fonts.com Web Fonts service, and for desktop licensing as well.

TED is known worldwide for providing a myriad of programs featuring innovative and influential speakers from a wide swath of disciplines. TED-Ed is an extension of that mission of disseminating knowledge, focused specifically on assisting educators with interactive teaching materials; whereas the TED motto is Ideas Worth Spreading, the mission of TED-Ed is Lessons Worth Sharing.

The TED-Ed website features the Neue Helvetica typeface family extensively, employing it for both the masthead, navigation, and section headlines.

The main navigation bar features Neue Helvetica 65 Medium, while the secondary navigation uses the typeface’s light weight. The core of the site features a series of illustrations, with one panel featuring text set in Neue Helvetica 25 Ultra Light which changes to red when moused over, a nice touch indeed.Ted-Ed Homepage
The most captivating aspect of the homepage is hidden at first glance. When moused over, the site’s illustrations reveal headlines set in Neue Helvetica 45 Light, which are knocked out of a slightly transparent field of color. Two small subheads set in Neue Helvetica 75 Bold balance the text arrangement quite nicely.

While Neue Helvetica provides an apt counterpoint to the more expressive illustrations on the TED-Ed site, it serves as a greater reminder that, yes, while Neue Helvetica is a stalwart typeface for presenting information cleanly or matter-of-factly, when consciously paired with color it also can embody a more sprightly character.

Neue Helvetica is available in over 50 Web font varieties, ranging in weights and widths from Ultra Light Condensed to Black Extended.

As the official website of Switzerland tourism, MySwitzerland.com provides a variety of resources to prospective travelers. Website visitors can pour through options for Swiss destinations, accommodations and transportation – or simply learn more about the country.

The website brings the look and feel you’d expect from anything Swiss-made; perhaps making the creative brief the easiest ever created. “Color palette? Let’s go with red and white.” “Typeface? Hmm, let’s see if Neue Helvetica® will work.” The definitive Swiss typeface is used in the masthead and throughout the site, courtesy of Fonts.com Web Fonts.MySwitzerland website using Web fonts
