TLDR: our web font service Catapult will stop working on September 30, 2020.
If you are using it to serve fonts on your website, Behance page or our iOS app, see the instructions below to backup your web fonts.
Over the past 5 years, we've launched many initiatives to ease your typographic life, and the Catapult service aimed to streamline the process of hosting & using web fonts.
While Catapult was available as a free beta, it turns out that the opportunity deserves a lot more resources & attention than we can afford, and as a result we will focus back on all the other challenges related to the creation of great quality fonts.
On the long term, we still believe that the value proposition of Catapult is a powerful one, and we hope to tackle in this challenge again in the future.
Thank you all for your trust in using it.

You can download a copy of any Catapulted font as web font files (including WOFF, WOFF2 and the related CSS) for free from Catapult:

with the local folder name:
