History[edit | edit source]
Small Batch was founded in San Francisco, California in 2008 by the designers of Google Analytics. Small Batch's Typekit subscription service was launched in November 2009. At the time, the company was operating out of a small office space on the third floor of a former morgue in the Mission District of San Francisco.
Small Batch's other project, Wikirank, was acquired by Brizzly on March 10, 2010. The remaining company renamed itself to TypeKit in February 2011, and was acquired by Adobe Systems in October 2011. Adobe Typekit was rebranded as Adobe Fonts on October 15, 2018.
