Adobe is one of the most comprehensive software packages on the entire internet. Over the years designers have been using Adobe as a creative platform and have seen great results. Today, we want to introduce you to the world of Adobe fonts and the ways in which you can use them to your benefit.
As a designer, project manager, or a content creator, your job is to choose an appropriate typeface to make things stand out. The 20 fonts that we will show you below are not only Adobe exclusives, but are highly versatile, and modern, and will be sure to attract all the right kinds of attention.
What do I need?
Prior to 2018, you may have heard of a programme named ‘Typekit’. In late 2018, this program changed its name to Adobe Fonts and came with a range of improvements and updates.
Over the last number of years since its inception, Adobe Fonts has become home to thousands of unique and creative typefaces that companies can use to their benefit.
However, you should be aware that in order to use Adobe Fonts, you will need to be a member of Creative Cloud.
Creative Cloud is a fantastic platform where designers can access Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects (among other programs). Essentially, it keeps everything in one convenient place for creators and designers.
There are a host of different price plans available for users, and you can sign up or cancel at any time.
Each of the fonts included in this article are available on Creative Cloud, and can be accessed via the links below.
Can I Access any of the Fonts for Free?
Nothing good comes for free, but you can always utilize student deals when purchasing a plan for Creative Cloud. You can actually avail of all of the apps in the cloud for $20 per month if you use the student and teacher discount. Just something to consider.
