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.
