You might have noticed from my previous posts that I really love fonts. When I crossed over from a strictly print designer to a web designer, a part of me was crushed when I learned I had a limited amount of fonts I could use. Then…Google Web Fonts came to my rescue! I can now design with more freedom and break away from the Georgia/Helvetica mold that we’re all so used to. For example, look at these web-safe beauties:
Here at centresource, we’re not the only ones who love to use these fonts. According to the Google Web Font Blog, they now serve roughly 50 million daily requests. Growth picked up considerably after Google Web Fonts announced over 20 new font families for the New Year.
One of the best attributes to these fonts are that you can either download the font or simply copy and paste the stylesheet link and CSS into your pages. That’s it, you’re done!
The site currently has 174 fonts available for use and I’m looking forward to seeing other fonts added in the next few months. Cheers to Google for continually making the internet more beautiful and fun.
