Home Forums Other H&FJ Webfonts Re: H&FJ Webfonts


@CrocoDillon Their claim is that many people still use images in replace of text. But I agree with you. That’s what `alt` was for, right?

We’ve been waiting for them for years. I think their beta webfonts (which H&FJ selected people for) that Dan Cederholm, Chris Coyier, Jessica Hische and some others have been using, came out just over a year ago. So it’s been a long anticipation to allow everyone to use their fonts on the web. And these are well known and award winning typefaces we’re talking about. Gotham being one of the biggest.
