I’m in the middle of designing a website, and having a bit of trouble finding out what fonts I should use on my headings/content (not logo related). I’m not using a WYSIWYG editor, so it’s quite slow to get a feel for how a font will look on the site!
The main thing that I’m curious about, is whether designers use:
- web fonts (API service such as GoogleFonts)
- custom fonts which can be downloaded onto the server (so the client downloads the font when visiting the page)
- desktop/system fonts (there is the trouble of knowing what fonts is on the client machine, as mac and windows etc would contain different fonts)
Any advice on making font selection easier for a website is appreciated, and is there any particular websites that’s recommended for choosing a font?
