Fonts for the web: Google Fonts gets a facelift
Written by: Jerom
They say that fonts are like music: there is one for every story.
While some people prefer the clean and versatile look of Helvetica and it would be tough to get them to switch to Verdana under the argument that it takes up more horizontal space. So, regarding tastes in fonts for websites, every designer has an opinion.
You know that in any given text picking the right font is fundamental for easy reading.
For all you fans out there, Google just renewed their service, Google Fonts,a space that gives you a selection of fonts you can use for free and on any website, ecommerce, blog, app...etc. It's a font space that offers a superior user experience that is easier to navigate to find the perfect font that best fits your story.
Design geeks, congratulations
Google's fonts represent a valuable tool for designers and web professionals.
Google makes it easier to navigate through their collection of designer web fonts and open source fonts. Now you can even discover the people creating new fonts.
The site uses responsive design (how could they not!) and it boasts an updated look and user experience, from the interactive features to the logo design, now without colour.
"One of our main goals with the new design is to convert Google Fonts into a more attractive tool for design", said Google.
The new site lets users connect with fonts on a more personal level, now with the added bonus of interaction and experimentation, accompanied by information about the fonts, the designers, and the analytics of each font.
Google Fonts boasts over 800 open source fonts ready to be downloaded to your computer or by adding the code provided by Google to your website. This is a simple way to add more font variety to websites and to find that perfect font for every story.
