Google has recently revamped its popular fonts site ‘Google Fonts’. The site now has a user-friendly layout that allows you to easily navigate its directory that includes over 800 fonts. It offers a dynamic grid where you can preview fonts, select fonts you like, use preview text to test them and many more. Fonts are organized into five main categories (Serif, Sans Serif, Display, Handwriting, Monospace) accessible from the left-hand sidebar. You can also filter your font search by sorts, languages and number of styles.
For those of you not familiar with Google Fonts, this is Google service that provides users with a huge directory of free and open source fonts available to test and use in more than 135 languages.’The open source fonts in the Google Fonts catalog are published under licenses that allow you to use them on any website, whether it’s commercial or personal…To download fonts, simply create a selection of fonts, open the drawer at the bottom of the screen, then click the “Download” icon in the upper-right corner of the selection drawer. You can download the fonts to use in mock-ups, documents, or locally on your machine.’
