Foundries on mobile?

Hi everybody! Curious to hear any opinion on by what degree should a foundry website be adapted for mobile experience? I assume that designers mostly do font researches and purchases from desktop, or am I living in the past?


  • As a practical matter, Google will not return the foundry website in a mobile search unless it is mobile friendly. If a user visits a foundry website on their mobile device it's certainly a better experience if the site is mobile friendly for them.

    However, if we're referring to mobile as a potential income stream via mobile, I can attest that iOS font sales via our mobile app has been quite a successful experiment and indeed there is a new marketplace for iOS users even if there are very few apps that currently support custom fonts.
