Hi Erik. Yes, typekit works like a google fonts API. I do have the fonts installed on my PC however, so I was hoping to at least be able to edit the landing pages with the correct font being rendered. We are using our own fonts in h1,h2 and paragraph styles.
Can you link to a page using it so I can look at the source?
Sure, just one so far : http://ww2.verilogue.com/definitive-guide-to-dialogue-research.html
Like my theft of Marketo naming convention? ;)
I'm surprised, because I saw Marketo's website itself using non web-standard fonts....There has to be a way to create landing pages without the guess work. Or maybe someone at Marketo does what i do which is approve-&-Refresh
I'll walk upstairs and chat with marketing on it too and see how they handle it.
Yeah I knew that limitation, but with custom fonts being all the rage these days I thought there was an easier solution.
Hey I appreciate you taking a trip upstairs! Let me know what they say - thanks!
So, I talked to several folks and they run into the same issue you do, and get around it by using the preview function. Also, I think our layout might be a little more fault tollerant.
Thanks Erik, good to know I'm on the same page as your marketing folks. Will work on the preview mode like you recommend. Thanks for your detective work!
I have used Typekit in the past and am currently working to implement Google web fonts.
This solutoin is not ideal but one thing that I often do is code most of my landing pages in Adobe Dreamweaver so that I can see a decent preview. Then I will drop in my code inside html blocks on the landing tool within Marketo.
One thing to be aware of is some web based fonts can impact landing page load time. If your web font style is pretty simple you should be okay though.
Hope that helps.
