Adobe Creative Cloud – with Typekit

If you’re a designer, you’ve probably already heard about the release of Adobe CS6. But did you know that Typekit is now included in Creative Cloud, the new way to subscribe to Adobe’s products?

In the cloud

For $50 a month (with an annual commitment – $75 month-to-month), it’s now possible to subscribe to every Adobe Creative product. Adobe explains more of the features of the service:

Adobe® Creative Cloud™ is the digital hub that lets you download and install every Adobe Creative Suite® 6 application; access online services for file sharing, collaboration, and publishing; and benefit from new apps and features as soon as they’re released — giving you the freedom to create anything you can imagine.


The biggest surprise inclusion within Creative Cloud is Typekit. Following Adobe’s acquisition of the service last year, this is the first big integrated move we’ve seen. And it’s a smart one. If you subscribe to Creative Cloud, you’re given a Typekit Portfolio plan. This is incredibly usefiul and will allow designers to really spice up their personal websites. The Portfolio plan allows 500,000 pageviews per month, full library access to Typekit’s fonts for use on an unlimited amount of websites. It’s the plan to get.

Does the inclusion of the Typekit plan sway you toward subscribing to Creative Cloud over just paying for the upgrade? Or were you already just planning to subscribe and the addition of the service just comes as an added bonus? let us know in the comments – we’re all interested to hear about your buying plans
