Type design is an interesting industry. It takes years to master which is not appreciated by the market. And I'm not a qualified type designer, but as a creative director (and purchasing gatekeeper) -- I feel the pricing model is really dated and beautiful type is being held hostage because of it.
We think that designers should be able to experiment with the best type available on the web and that belief doesn't change now that we're part of a bigger company.
It always seemed like an extra hassle to have one more service in the mix, I'd rather just pick my font right in Typekit or Google Fonts even if the selection is more limited.
We'll be continuing to operate autonomously so there won't be any negative product changes for customers. There is no intent for this to become a Monotype-only service or to do anything other than build the best tool for working with type on the web.
