Typography company Monotype has simplified and streamlined its offering to designers, combining its service with the Typecast app to offer both web and desktop fonts in one plan.

The combined services will now be accessible via a 'Master Subscription Plan', which includes:

  • An unlimited download allowance of more than 7,000 traditional 'desktop fonts', including selections from various typeface foundries and the company’s Monotype Libraries.
  • Access to more than 20,000 web fonts, including hundreds of hand-tuned selections that Monotype says offer exceptional clarity, particularly at small text sizes.
  • Access to Typecast, a browser-based tool for designing web pages with web fonts. Designers can visually style text directly within the browser, which offers more scope for creative experimentation, using fonts from the Typekit, Fontdeck, Webtype and Google Fonts, in addition to web fonts.

Subscribers can use both desktop fonts and web fonts

"The Master subscription plan liberates designers to put type first, and to experiment with, and benefit from, the widest possible typographic palette," says Chris Roberts, vice president and general manager of Monotype’s e-commerce group. You can sign up for the Master subscription plan here (opens in new tab).
