In this series I introduce the 10 best Webdesigner-Tools and Websites. (obviously strongly biased content as this may only be true for me) Next up:
Google Web Fonts
Actually there are many many pages to find good Fonts but for Designers and especially Web Designers Google Web Fonts is a great place to start. Why? First of, Google already does a realy good job providing access to over 506 font families, not only can you filter the fonts with various options, you can display your choice of text, bookmark yor favorite fonts and so on.
The best part for Designers: You can download each and every font and use them freely:
All of the fonts are Open Source. This means that you are free to share your favorites with friends and colleagues. You can even customize them for your own use, or collaborate with the original designer to improve them. And you can use them in every way you want, privately or commercially — in print, on your computer, or in your websites.
The best part for Webdesigners: Google Web Fonts can be used immediately on your website and Google takes care of the hosting. So it’s the best alternative to commercial web hosting services like Typekit.
So how do you actually find the best free fonts for web design on Google Web Fonts? Luckily a few websites will help us finding the best choice of fonts for our next project.
Beautiful web type shows us the best typefaces from the Google web fonts directory on a very very stylish Website.
