You simply sync a font from Typekit through Creative Cloud, and it appears in the font menu of all your applications. But with thousands of options, where do you begin?

We’ve assembled the Typography Welcome Pack as a starting point for designers like you. This collection of 25 fonts from various families will expose you to some of our most popular and versatile fonts.

“The fonts in the pack are meant to demonstrate a cross-section of not only the kinds of fonts you can find on Typekit, but also a broad range of useful typefaces for the trends we expect users want to jump into and feature in their work,” says Dan Rhatigan, senior manager with Adobe Typekit.

Here’s a breakdown of the fonts featured in our Typography Welcome Pack and what makes each of them a special addition to your next design project.


By: Robert Slimbach

Acumin example.

Designed by a member of Adobe’s in-house type team, Acumin is considered a classic modern grotesque, similar to Helvetica. It functions as a versatile, workhorse typeface that is sharp, clean, and uncomplicated. Three different weights of Acumin are available in the Welcome Pack.

Objektiv example.

Objektiv caters to current trends of crisp geometrical and symmetrical sans serif typefaces. The large rounded letters approach as near a perfect circle as possible, and there are few extraneous details that might distract the viewer. It’s a clean and simple typeface. The Welcome Pack includes the thin weight.

Potential uses:

Mrs. Eaves

By: Zuzana Licko, Emigre foundry

Mrs. Eaves example.

This typeface is a modern classic that has a bit too much detail to be an everyday, every situation typeface, but is perfect when you want to evoke the idea of books and literature with an added flair. The OT Roman and OT Italics fonts are included in the Welcome Pack.

Potential uses:

FF Tisa

By: Mitja Miklavčič, FontFont

Tisa Pro Regular.

Tisa Pro Bold.

Like Mrs. Eaves, FF Tisa was designed with editorial uses in mind. It was actually one of the most popular typefaces used in the early days of web fonts because its sturdy lines were always visible on-screen. This font works well in both digital and print scenarios. Welcome Pack subscribers will receive the Pro Regular and Pro Bold fonts.

Potential uses:


By: James Todd, JTD

Essonnes example.

This classic high-contrast serif typeface lends the text a sense of elegance with a sharp distinction between the heavy strokes and thin strokes of each letter. The typeface is stylish and fun while remaining classy and sharp. The Welcome Pack features the Text Regular font.

Potential uses:

Museo Slab

By: Jos Buivenga, exljbris Font Foundry

Museo Slab example.

This slab serif typeface follows the trend of wide-proportioned, rounded letters. It fits with the popularity of geometric sans serif typefaces, but the slab serif design makes it a little easier to read. Where Objektiv focuses on minimalism and detail reduction, Museo Slab softens its letters slightly with a few additional details.

Potential uses:


By: Michael Hochleitner, Typejockeys

Henriette example.

Henriette is a bold serif typeface. It’s heavy and eye-catching. The font offered in the Welcome Pack — Black Italic — has real vigor and zest.

Potential uses:


By: Jim Parkinson

Sutro example.

This eclectic display typeface has over 20 different fonts of various weights and styles. The Welcome Pack includes Sutro Heavy, a good representation of what the typeface offers. Its solid, black strokes softened by serifs bring to mind an image of older, chunky wood display type.

Potential uses:

Viktor Script

By: Erik Marinovich and James Edmondson, OH no Type Co.

Viktor Script example.

Viktor Script is one of several script fonts available in the Welcome Pack. Each script font conveys a different feeling that allows designers to get the handwritten look they are going for while also matching the overall tone of the piece. This font is heavy and condensed, similar to a display font and is perfect for any project that requires flair and detailing.

Potential uses:

Lust Script

By: Neil Summerour

Lust Script example.

In contrast to Viktor Script, Lust Script is wide and expansive, showing off every luxurious detail of the high-contrast typeface. The combination of extremely thick strokes and almost invisible thin strokes allows for extra embellishments that might make another typeface appear muddled.

Potential uses:


By: Laura Worthington

Renata example.

This casual script font makes the text seem personal and friendly. Laura designed Renata as an OpenType font, so Creative Cloud users can play around with the glyph palette and find alternate shapes for many of the letters.

Potential uses:


By: Mike Rohde

Sketchnote example.

The aptly-named Sketchnote is a non-cursive script font, which conveys the idea of someone — particularly a child — quickly writing out a casual note without the need for elegant handwriting. The typeface is fun and imaginative. The Text Regular font is included in the Welcome Pack.

Potential uses:


By: Blambot

Blambot example.

This script font is a classic comic book typeface and works great for anything requiring either nostalgia or a feeling of heroism. The Welcome Pack includes BB Bold.

Potential uses:

Sign Painter

By: Ken Barber

Sign Painter example.

This font family has many options to choose from, and the Welcome Pack will introduce you to one of the most popular choices: House Slant Regular. The font consists of thick, soft brushstrokes and probably looks familiar.

Potential uses:


By: Octavio Pardo, Rosetta Type Foundry

Sutturah example.

Sutturah is fairly unique in the world of typefaces. Its heavy black strokes eliminate almost all letter whitespace, and the curvy, asymmetrical letters almost look like they are moving. Sutturah wants you to know it’s there. The font works well when you need something punchy and dramatic, but also fun and lively. Sutturah Fat is included in the Welcome Pack.

Potential uses:


By: Nick Cooke

Rollerscript example.

This casual, handwriting-esque typeface looks as though it were written with a thin brush or marker. It has a fast personality, like someone went through it in a hurry.

Potential uses:


By: Brian Willson

Marydale example.

Marydale font is similar to Rollerscript — it’s fast, loose, and casual — but while Rollerscript is a cursive script font, Marydale styles more toward print handwriting. Both convey a sense of friendly cheerfulness.

Potential uses:


By: Joshua Darden

Omnes example.

This multipurpose rounded display font is popular with businesses. Like Objektiv and Museo Slab, sans serif letters are geometric and wide, but Omnes softens the circles a bit to make the text seem slightly less mechanical and more casual.

Potential uses:

Fira Mono

By: Edenspiekermann

Fira Mono example.

This monospaced typeface, like many similar typefaces, is a clean display font, but it has come to serve a highly specific purpose in the world of typeface design — showing technological information.
