Do you ever get sick of the dreadful selection of “web safe” fonts available to use on your site?
It doesn’t exactly help make your site attractive does it?
Well Google have recently done something good for once!
Don’t believe me? Well it’s true!
They probably have some ulterior motive, such as stealing part of your brain, but they have released an amazing free resource – Google Web Fonts
You can go and have a browse around here
There are no less than 629 web fonts available for you to use on your website. Woohoo!
Web fonts have many benefits (engagement, uniqueness, SEO, etc.) and above all you can make your text look exactly the way you want to really emphasise your point or express your personality.
Check out this infographic to see a selection of the fonts and effects available and the reasons why you might want to use them in the first place:
