It’s a done deal: Adobe has acquired Typekit, the much-loved provider of high-quality fonts for use on websites. The privately held company counts The New York Times and Conde Nast among the approximately 250,000 customers of its subscription-based cloud service. Adobe plans to offer TypeKit as a standalone service that will ultimately become part of Adobe Creative Cloud, an initiative announced today at the MAX 2011 conference in Los Angeles. “We are thrilled. There honestly is no better place for us to continue building our platform,” wrote Typekit CEO and co-founder Jeffrey Veen in a blog post announcing the acquisition. “But perhaps even more significantly, this represents a huge step forward in bringing fonts to the web.”
