Fontdeck is a web font service cofounded by Clearleft. The service provides web designers with the ability to use professional typefaces as real text on their web sites. Clearleft designed the entire service, from business model, through API, to the visual design and branding.

Fontdeck currently offers around 1000 fonts. Clearleft designed the browsing interface to help designers find, compare and test the fonts they need. We designed the system of familiar categories, tagging, inline live preview and detailed sampler pages to enable this.

It was important that the system be very quick and easy to implement. To achieve this, we worked through many iterations, including usability testing, as we refined the way we presented the application and the mehod by which designers used it. Including a very simple registration process, designers can get up and running with Fontdeck in about a minute.
