Licensing Options

You can use this font in any of the following places. Read the full EULA text for details about each license. If you have a usage in mind that's not covered by these licenses, contact us and we'll see what we can do.

Desktop: for use on a desktop workstation

For the most common uses, both personal and professional, for use in desktop applications with a font menu.

For example:

  • Install the font on your Mac OS X or Windows system
  • Use the font within desktop applications such as Microsoft Word, Mac Pages, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, etc.
  • Create and print documents, as well as static images (.jpeg, .tiff, .png)

Desktop licenses are based on the number of users of the fonts. You can change the number of users by clicking the quantity dropdown option on Buying Choices or Cart pages.

Please be sure to review the listing foundry's Desktop license agreement as some restrictions may apply—such as use in logos/trademarks, geographic restrictions (number of locations), and products that will be sold.

Adding users later:

Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you require a Desktop license that covers additional users, simply place a new order for the same Desktop package, for the number of additional users.

Zesta Desktop EULA

Webfont: for your website

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 webfont kit.

For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

This font's webfont license is:

Annual

You get a total number of prepaid pageviews that can be used over time. This means that you will pre-pay for a number of pageviews, then you'll have to come back to order more after your site has been viewed that number of times.

For example, if you order 250,000 page views, when your webpages using the webfonts have been viewed 250,000 times, you will need to buy the webfont package again for an additional number of prepaid pageviews. Pageviews are valid for 1 year.

Zesta WebFont EULA

App: for embedding in mobile applications

Select this license type when you are developing an app for iOS, Android, or Windows Phone, and you will be embedding the font file in your mobile application's code.

Zesta App EULA

ePub: for embedding in e-text products

You can use an ePub license to embed the font in an electronic publication such as an eBook, eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.

An ePub license is based on the number of publications in which the font is used. Each issue counts as a separate publication. Regional or format variations don't count as separate publications.

Updated versions of publications that are free to previous customers do not need a new license; otherwise, each new version that is released counts as a separate publication.

For font usage in graphic images shown as the ePub cover, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

About Zesta Font Family


Zesta is a family of high-contrast serif fonts, intended for use in display typography. Their design is modern, or ‘Didone’ in style, meaning that its letterforms look like those used in France during the revolutionary, imperial, and restoration eras (late-1700s/early-1800s). This style of type is instantly associated with fashion and design for high-end cosmetic products. It is also used extensively in magazine design. The family includes 10 styles. There are five weights, ranging Light through Black. Each weight has an upright and and italic font on offer. The upright fonts feature letterforms drawn with vertical axes of stress. Ball terminals play a prominent design role in both the upright and italic fonts. The hairlines in all of the fonts are very thin. The thicker strokes just keep getting heavier as one moves up the weight scale, and this is the driver behind the typeface’s high-contrast design. The lowercase letters in Zesta feature a large x-height. Ascenders rise slightly above the capitals, and the default numerals are the same height as the uppercase letters. These default numerals are proportionally-spaced lining figures; however, oldstyle figures are also available via an OpenType feature. The fonts include discretionary ‘ct’ and ‘st’ ligatures, which can be accessed via an OpenType feature as well. The lowercase ‘a’ and ‘g’ are double-storey in the upright fonts and single-storey in the italics.
