Typewolf’s Guide to Typekit

Typekit is a great service but isn’t all that useful when you are in the typeface discovery, selection and pairing phase of a design project. If you are like me, then you find it difficult to choose typefaces based on examples of The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog or even worse, just the letters Ag.

Seeing real type on actual websites in the wild is much more useful—that is why you are visiting Typewolf, right?

But do you ever discover a typeface you really like on Typewolf but end up disappointed because it’s not available on Typekit? Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could filter Typewolf to only show sites using fonts on Typekit?

Well I created a product that does exactly that. With Typewolf’s Guide to Typekit you’ll be able to browse Typewolf’s Site of the Day section in “Typekit mode”—every font you see in all of the designs will be available in your Typekit account. Quickly browse hundreds of real websites to see what typefaces render well for body copy, which ones pair well together and how they can be used to convey different moods.

You’ll also discover my handpicked selection of favorite Typekit font combinations with explanations of why the pairings work. I also include a collection of my top 10 favorite fonts on Typekit that I believe are underused on the web (Brandon Grotesque is nice and all but do you really want your site to look like every other site out there?).

If you are a Typekit user then you will save hours of time during the typeface selection process and end up with much nicer type on your final project. Here’s what’s included:

Lifetime access to an exclusive section of Typewolf built just for Typekit users

  • Filter Typewolf’s Site of the Day section to only show sites using fonts available on Typekit
  • Browse hundreds of sites to see real-world font pairings—rest assured that every font pairing you see is available in your Typekit account
  • Save hours of time during the typeface discovery, selection and pairing phase of a project

The 10 best serif + sans-serif font combinations on Typekit

  • Discover my handpicked selection of typeface pairings that truly complement each other
  • Includes visual examples and explanations of why the combinations harmonize so nicely
  • Each combination includes a recommended body copy font that includes regular, italic, bold and bold italic styles and renders well on screen at smaller sizes, meaning it has low to moderate stroke contrast, large counters, open apertures and an adequate x-height

The 10 best underused fonts on Typekit

  • There are over 1200 font families available on Typekit but designers tend to use the same few over and over—this leads to generic designs that look like website templates
  • The Typekit library contains some real gems that seem to be overlooked by designers—discover my 10 favorites that will make your brand distinctive

How do I access the Sites Using Typekit section of Typewolf?

In your purchase receipt email, click the View product button and it will take you to a page where you can download the PDF as well as a text file named sites_using_typekit.txt. That text file contains the login URL and password. Additional information is included inside the PDF on page 4.

I’m not a Typekit user. Will I still find this product helpful?

No. It’s created specifically for Typekit users so you probably wouldn’t get much value from it. Although if you wanted to buy it just to help support Typewolf that is always appreciated!
