Hello @matt50, @vincent .
Compatibility with Typography.com was one of my first concerns and still is, so I am glad Matt already started a thread.
Vincent, they do not offer this downloadable for web fonts, as they are very, VERY, preoccupied with their webfonts being re-distributed. They have high prices for their fonts, which are considered first-class. Their webfont service is custom-made by them, and it is the only option available.
They are highly regarded in the design community, and their designs quite coveted, which is why they have such security measures. Since they do not offer low prices or free fonts,and only distribute their own designs (they are a design studio ), they are not as widely known as Typekit or Google Fonts, who aim to make many designs accessible.
However, within the niche of design, and especially premium design, they are regarded as among the best of the best.
It would be amazing if you found a way to be compatible with Typography.com, as it would I believe place you in higher demand with premium brands and designers.

It has worked with a number of prominent institutions in New York City, including The United Nations, The Guggenheim Museum, The Whitney Museum, Lever House, Radio City Music Hall, and The New York Jets. Its Gotham typeface, because of its connection to New York City history, was selected in 2004 for the cornerstone of Freedom Tower, to be built on the site of the former World Trade Center.

Jonathan Hoefler was the recipient of the 2002 Prix Charles Peignot for outstanding contributions to typeface design. In 2006, Tobias Frere-Jones received the prestigious Gerrit Noordzij Prize, an award given by the Royal Academy of Art (The Hague) to honor innovations in type design. In 2009, they became the first typeface designers to be recognized by the National Design Awards. Both Hoefler and Frere-Jones are regular speakers at international conferences. The company’s biography until its split stated, “Hoefler’s work has been exhibited internationally, and is included in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum (Smithsonian Institution) in New York. In 2002, The Association Typographique Internationale (ATypI) presented Hoefler with its most prestigious award, the Prix Charles Peignot for outstanding contributions to type design.
