If you’re on the lookout for some new fonts to jazz up correspondence or web communication, I’ve got a great resource, Google Fonts.
There are almost 900 font families to choose from. Most of those families have multiple fonts, so you have thousands of choices.
Click Featured at the top to see which styles Google is putting the spotlight on.
Click Articles for an incredibly informative library of information about typography.
You can browse for style or use the search filters to find just what you’re looking for.
Here I’ll narrow the category to Handwriting by unchecking the other categories.
These are the results. It narrows the field to 138 font families.
I can narrow the search further by adjusting the language, thickness, and width of the fonts.
These adjustments narrow the field to just 13.
Test out the look of the font by typing right in the box beneath its name.
You can adjust the size of the font to get an idea of what it looks like for different applications.
To select fonts, click the + button.
The number of fonts you’ve picked will be displayed at the bottom of the page.
When you’re ready to download, click the dash to the right to see all of your selections. You can remove any fonts you don’t want by clicking the red minus sign next to the name.
When you’re ready to download, click the download symbol.
Tomorrow, I’ll show you how to install the downloaded fonts on your PC.
