Web Fonts = Awesome Website Typography
When designing for print choosing a font that creates the look and feel you are looking for is one of the most important things required for a successful design. Typography for web design however, has long been a restrictive process with choices being limited to “web safe” fonts such as Arial, Times New Roman, Helvetica, etc. These fonts come pre-packaged with most computers, are universally known but aren’t exactly the definition of exciting.
The good news is the restrictions on fonts for the web are being removed with many new font services like Google WebFonts that allow a designer access to just about any font available. This allows your web designer to select fonts for your site just like they would for a brochure, business cards or any other piece of print design – To serve a purpose and convey a message.
Proper font choice can often go undetected by an untrained eye, but when type is done right even the most un-artistic eye will know that a layout looks great. Working with professional designers can ensure your website achieves this effect.
Ask your web designer about using web fonts on your next web design project or check out any of the online web font services to get your creative juices flowing!
