A few of my favorite Google Fonts

google fontsGoogle fonts are fantastic, and not just because they are 100% free, open-source fonts that are viewable in all browsers – they are also easy to use and most are fast-loading. A great font is a key to achieving the perfect style for a personal and professional website so I thought I’d take a few minutes to list a few of my favorite Google fonts:

Work Sans

Work Sans is one of my all time favorite web fonts. Work Sans comes in a variety of widths, is easy to read while offering a modern simplicity. We like it so much we use Work Sans on our Sumy Designs website.

Flamenco

Hmmm, is it a serif? A slab? Let’s go with semi-slab serif so we have all of our bases covered. A little bit trendy, a little bit retro and a whole lot of style. Give Flamenco a whirl when you are looking for a fun and unique web font on your next site.

Gravitas One

Serif fonts are making a huge comeback in web design and Gravitas One is a chunky and clean font that is perfect for any headline you are wanting to make to stand out and make a statement on your website. A nice and fine-lined sans serif is a great pairing as a body font for Gravitas One.

Roboto

Speaking of fine sans serifs, Roboto is a staple web font for me. Roboto is available in six weights and italics. Roboto is easy to read and a crowd pleaser. If you aren’t sure what font to use, make Roboto one of your go-to fonts.

Berkshire

Sometimes an ornamental font is the only thing that will do. I like Berkshire for its edgy and hipster qualities and its legibility.
