I do have a thing for beautiful typography, yet I find it fairly difficult to for example find some nice font-pairs. Luckily there is a lot of inspiration to be found elsewhere.
A few days ago a bunch of Google Fonts was added to the WordPress-Theme-Customizer 1 which reminded me of the 100 days of Fonts project that I stumbled onto a while ago and which I failed to link to for quite some time. The project has ended in the meanwhile and features very beautiful typography only with Google fonts.
Over time I ran into similar pages which feature beautiful type and font-pairs:
- Font Pair
Great collection of font-pairs with Google fonts. Finding a good pair is a very difficult (for me at least) and this site is a good guide with lots of examples.
- Beatiful Web Type
- Google Web Fonts Typographic Project
It’s very nice and inspiring to see what can be done with these free fonts. There’s a lot to be learned.
And talking about free fonts… Via Twitter I learned about Fontain.org which is a nice collection of free fonts.
- There is a decent chance that you have noticed a change of fonts every now and then around here. ↩
