  • Make OpenType-SVG color vector fonts from Illustrator: this is the future of type, dude ;)
  • Oh, and you can now also use your fonts online, using Catapult, our online service to publish fonts on web & mobile:




#1 Color fonts are pretty new technology - they currently show up in Photoshop CC 2017+, Illustrator CC 2018 and some Mac apps. Learn more about color font support on third-party apps here:
