Thanks to subscription platforms like Typekit, licensing fonts for web use isn’t all that expensive or difficult any more. But there are plenty of free options, too–like Google Fonts, a collection of more than 800 open-source font families you can license without cost for online use.
Now, using Google Fonts will be even easier. A slick new homepage allows you to search fonts by style, thickness, and slant, all while previewing your options in a grid of text fields that you can actually type inside to try out fonts instantly.
Go ahead, pitch your clients a site typed in Google’s own Roboto and see if they notice.
