The great thing about Google Web Fonts is we’re no longer restricted to the ‘web safe’ fonts of: Arial, MS Trebuchet, Georgia, Times New Roman, and Verdana. All you need to do is grab the the code Google generates and you can add the collections (or font face) to your website.
I love the look and feel of this handwritten script font. The only downfall is I haven’t found the chance to put it to work – I’m waiting on the right piece. The font includes 2 styles and was designed by Vernon Adams.
Old Standard tt
A serif favourite with medium, bold and italic styles. Includes three styles in medium, bold and italic font weight by Alex Kryukov.
Oswald is great web typeface to use when a condensed font is needed. It’s a boxy sans serif font with simple straight line descenders. Another font designed by Vernon Adams.
Open Sans Condensed
Similar to Oswald but much more boxy with less curves. Three styles designed by Steve Matteson.
Droid was the inspiration behind Actually’s branding typeface. I’ve got a thing for serif fonts that are slightly angled or are italicized and love the opportunity to use Droid! Designed by Steve Matteson.
A great choice for bold sans-serif design usages. It’s like helvetica – you can’t go wrong. Designed by Dalton Maag.
This Google web font has formidable characters. I mean seriously, check out that ampersand and stare at right corners of the letter descenders on the l, u and r and tell me you aren’t in awe, feeling the grandeur and strength in each. Allerta is not like the others and was designed by Matt McInerney.
