Adding Adobe Fonts to GatsbyJS site

Adding your Adobe Fonts to your Gatsby site

If you are anything like me, you may have google something like, "Adobe Fonts Gatsbyjs". Of course, you get a large search return but I found each solution to be unnecessarily long and complicated.

3 steps to Adding Adobe Fonts to Your Gatsby Site

Step 1 -

Find your fonts and add them to your web project on Adobe Fonts. Then copy your <link> code. It should look something like this

<link rel="stylesheet" href="[TYPEKITCODE].css" />

Step 2

Take that code and save it in your SEO component. My SEO component looks like this

import React from "react";
import { useStaticQuery, graphql } from "gatsby";

const Seo = ({ description, title, children }) => {
  const { site } = useStaticQuery(
      query {
        site {
          siteMetadata {
            author {

  const metaDescription = description || site.siteMetadata.description;
  const defaultTitle = site.siteMetadata?.title;

  return (
      <title>{defaultTitle ? `${title} | ${defaultTitle}` : title}</title>
      <meta name="description" content={metaDescription} />
      <meta property="og:title" content={title} />
      <meta property="og:description" content={metaDescription} />
      <meta property="og:type" content="website" />

export default Seo;

Step 3

At the bottom of your index.js page use the Gatsby Head API

Mine looks like this

export const Head = () => <Seo title="Home" />;

Now you can use your Adobe Typekit fonts exactly how you would use any fonts in your css. Copy the font-family code from your web project page on Adobe Fonts and add it to your styling page!

p {
  font-family: proxima-nova, sans-serif;
  font-weight: 300;
  font-style: normal;
