One of the great joys of designing typefaces is seeing them in the wild, and discovering what new voices people have coaxed out of your work. A year ago today, we launched Cloud.typography, and had no idea that we’d be presented with these delights so deeply, so rapidly, and so often: for twelve months, we’ve watched designers sign up for the service one day, build things the next, and deploy their sites the following morning. We’ve seen our letters come to life in ways we’d never imagined, on the sites we use every day, and in new settings that push the boundaries of possibility. It’s been a deeply gratifying experience for everyone who worked to build Cloud.typography, so we owe you our thanks for making our work a part of yours.
Thank you to the designers and developers who have put Cloud.typography to the test, using all the features we labored over, and reaching deep into the furthest recesses of our font library. Thank you to the organizations who have trusted their communications to our fonts, from the institutions who use our webfonts to bring their identities online, to the new businesses who have found their voice using H&Co fonts. Thank you all for a wonderful first year together — we are so looking forward to the next! —JH
