We know you’re probably thinking “Fonts? Really?” But there are some very cool things going on in the world of web fonts that we’d like to tell you about. Stop laughing; we’re serious!
Up until recently, the ways to display type on a web page were limited to either a select few “web-safe fonts” – those that are common to most computers – or to display the type as an image. But no longer! Today there are several options available to designers to display real text on a web page. Here are two of our favorites:
Google Font Directory – Google has developed a free tool to help designers embed a plethora of fonts into web pages by simply copying and pasting a string of code.
Typekit – Typekit, though a paid service, offers a wider range of font selections from dozens of foundries. These fonts are hosted on servers around the world for fast loading from virtually anywhere.
So, what exactly does all this mean? For you, it means fresh, modern design with eye-catching type to make your cause stand out from the crowd. Our designers are excited to use these tools to help you.
