Global Typography from Monotype

This website demonstrates a patented dynamic subsetting approach to hosted Asian web fonts from Mosaic by Monotype. This allows global brands to ensure consistent typography across geographies and languages/scripts.

File size matters

The typical size of an Asian web font (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) is over a megabyte. This file size can mean longer download times resulting in a sub-optimal viewer experience.

Monotype’s dynamic subsetting technique analyzes the content of your web page and then requests a subsetted Asian font specific to the content on your web page. The resulting subsetted font is much, much smaller in size. And, once the subset font has been created, it is cached on the server to expedite subsequent downloads.

Even the initial subsetting process typically takes less than a second, so excellent performance is ensured!

How it works

Creating and using web fonts with Mosaic is easy and straightforward. With Asian fonts, using dynamic subsetting is simply a matter of inserting a JavaScript reference into your web page and then specifying the font-family strings that you want to apply to various styles. The Asian fonts are hosted on Monotype’s subsetting service and are always available through AWS and Azure cloud services.
