Author: Anirban Bhattacharya

Besides use of compelling graphics and animation, an unquestionably vital aspect of any professional flash website design is its creative use of font(s). As a custom flash web design, to begin with, is creatively liberating for any website designer, it is usual for one to wish to use varying fonts than the type cast and predictable Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana and other commonly found fonts across most computer systems.

As a matter of procedure, Flash Player always looks up user’s computer hard disk for fonts installed when deciphering a particular font on the webpage. When it does not find it on the PC, the eventual output is way different and distorted than it was intended. So, in order to ensure that user sees the fonts exactly as used while designing a professional flash website design, the designer needs to incorporate the fonts in such a manner that the output is always consistent and as anticipated.

Accordingly, as a designer gets ready to implement a rare font into a professional flash web site design, he/ she is faced with two ways to go about it.

  • First, use images of the text;
  • Second, Embedding Fonts in question.

Of course, embedding fonts into the SWF file of the application is any day a better method as it renders significantly lesser consumption of bandwidth than the former. Consequently, designers around the world embed fonts in their professional flash web design.

Following are the many pros of embedding fonts, especially when dealing with professional Flash web site design:

  • Text upon embedding font is already anti-aliased, which means smoother edges;
  • With embedded fonts, designer enjoys the option of rendering the fonts transparent or semi transparent etc;
  • The Kerning CSS style is usable;
  • Font embedding allows you to embed any font, irrespective of whether it’s true type or not.

Further, there are more than one ways to embed a font in a custom professional Flash web design, including creating a new font for reference and using run-time shared library to store embedded fonts.
