Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web
design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.
Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the
@font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the

eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.

You can use this type of license to embed fonts into digital ads, such as ads built using HTML5.

may be shared with third parties who are working on your behalf to produce the ad creatives, however you

HTML5 ads use webfonts, so why purchase a Digital Ads license rather than a Webfont license?
There are a few reasons, such as the Digital Ads EULA having terms that enable usage in digital ads and on
Digital advertisements also have different usage patterns compared to websites. Most websites generally
have consistent pageviews month-to-month whereas advertising impressions can vary wildly month-to-month.
Prices reflect this, making it much less expensive to use a Digital Ad license.
If you know the number of impressions the campaign requires, that amount can be ordered before the
campaign begins. For campaigns where number impressions is unknown until the end of the campaign, you can
true up at the end of each calendar month.
New York vibes FS Irwin was born in New York while Senior Designer, Fernando Mello, was studying an intensive 5 week typeface design course at the Cooper Union. His brief was to design a perfectly clear typeface that could communicate well, without loud or overtly mannered design features. Fernando was influenced by the subway font in New York: ‘It is very in your face and clear, always in bold. It doesn’t shout much but at the same time is very present and unique. The design is completely different but it was this spirit I wanted to capture for FS Irwin.’ And the vibe of the city: ‘In a similar way to London, New York is so mixed and so cosmopolitan. I was amazed by the different styles and identities I saw there, and tried to encapsulate this essence to create something new, relevant and very now.’
Incisive quality Rather than focusing on quirks or distinctive characteristics, the key to FS Irwin is the quality of its design and spirit of simplicity. The design, proportions and details are usable and authentic and it is suitable for countless situations, without running the risk of being instantaneously noticeable. Families like this can be used on nearly anything, from more playful designs to serious corporate IDs.
‘Extensively tested and precisely drawn text-oriented typefaces are what I enjoy designing the most. There is a beauty and a different approach, a different way of making them interesting, sellable and usable rather than adding flicks or unexpected details.’
Inscriptions and calligraphy FS Irwin’s origin lies in Fernando’s studies in inscriptional lettering and writing-calligraphic exercises at the Cooper Union. Mello started the process by digitising his explorations and adapting them into a more workable sans serif structure. The traditional forms of writing which gave the basis to Latin type as we know it today were the perfect place to start. This influence can be seen in the proportion of the capitals and in slight writing-calligraphic details in the lowercase, such as the slightly angled, chiselled spurs and their open terminals.
