font

Google Fonts are everywhere. They can be seen on all types of websites, especially those that target a global audience. These fonts were designed by different font developers and agencies around the world, but they are all free to use. 

One feature that makes Google Fonts very convenient to use is the ability to pick exactly which ones you want while creating a site, depending on its theme and purpose.

No information is required and you will remain anonymous. The files will be downloaded to the location of your choice directly, so no attribution is required whatsoever and we won’t bother you with any promotional materials afterward. 

If you want further similar content in the future we’ll send you an announcement on Facebook (if you’re signed up there).

Top recommended Google Fonts List Here:

1. Roboto

Roboto is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Google. Roboto is based on a simplified design of grotesk faces like Franklin Gothic and Futura, with similar proportions and the same x-height and stroke width to these serif fonts. Like most modern sans-serif typefaces it has a higher contrast compared to older designs. 

The name “Roboto ” was chosen due to its nature as a robot font — in that, it borrows from the familiar and sets things out almost naturally (or ‘relatively’ easy).

 Many of history’s boldest font choices have come from typographers building upon other designers’ work—think how Lucian Bernhard’s bold version of Chicago set new standards for newspapers across Europe and sparked many imitations. Similarly, Roboto starts with simple shapes that we can recognize from signage and transportation but makes them more contemporary through combined soft curves. In 2012 Roboto became available under an open-source license.

3. Lato

Lato is a sans serif typeface family that started out in the summer of 2010 by Warsaw-based designer Łukasz Dziedzic under his foundry Poland. 

The Latin word “latus” which means summer in Latin, inspired him to choose this as the project’s name because it was originally intended for an outside company that wanted to establish a corporate identity during the summer months. 

However, that company went with their own branding and über creative people like yourself could download Lato instead due to minor changes in design direction.

4. Montserrat

Julieta Ulanovsky has designed a new typeface called Montserrat which was inspired by old signs and posters that were previously used in the urban neighborhoods of Argentina. As these areas are redeveloped into something else, many of these unique signs and posters will never be able to be restored back to their original form. 

The letterforms will forever be gone from this world as it evolves but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful! Many of the letters combined in this font represent an interesting mixture of art and utility: some can be traced back to something that looks like it could have been drawn by street artists, others appear like they were copied directly from an old sign or a poster somewhere local. 

Because Montserrat is free under a libre license, anyone is free to use this typeface however they wish as long as it’s not for financial gain.

However, that company went with their own branding and über creative people like yourself could download Lato instead due to minor changes in design direction.

7. Raleway

Raleway is an elegant sans-serif typeface family. Initially designed as a single thin weight, it was expanded into a 9 weight family by Pablo Impallari and Rodrigo Fuenzalida in 2012 along with the help of Font Fabric and iKerned by Igino Marini, adding old style and lining numerals, standard and discretionary ligatures. 

The face also features a pretty complete set of diacritics as well as a stylistic alternate inspired by more geometric sans-serif typefaces than its neo-grotesque inspired default character set.

8. PT Sans 

In 2011, ParaType released Public Domain Sans and Private Domain Serif. The design of each font was inspired by the Roman letterforms popular during Peter The Great’s lifetime in the early 18th century. 

the fonts were used for a series of events celebrating the 300-year anniversary of the Civil script that had been introduced by him to modernize Russia’s public life, culture and education at large.

PT Sans is based on Russian sans serif types of the second part of the 20th century, but at the same time has distinctive features of contemporary humanistic designs. The family consists of 8 styles: 4 basic styles, 2 captions styles for small sizes, and 2 narrows styles for economic type setting.

9. Oswald

When Oswald was first conceptualized, it was based on the timeless traditions of classic serif typefaces. The history and legacy that those designs bring made incorporating the right elements into Oswald a priority. As many designers know, however, it isn’t always enough to just rely on nostalgia. 

Thankfully that wasn’t a problem for Oswald! For after multiple iterations in development, Oswald has been refined and redesigned in order to ensure that it performs equally well without sacrificing any of its signature aesthetic appeal. 

That is why we are proud to say that our redesigns have succeeded — not only in maintaining tradition but also in adapting them by further tailoring their characters to meet the needs and demands of their immediate digital context!

10. Slabo 27px

Slabo is a collection of fonts that were designed specifically to be used online. The font comes in two different size variants and was also made thanks to the support of users on Kickstarter. 

Slabo 27px is for dating websites, florists, and other small businesses who want a lot of text to work with but don’t have that much room to work with due to their extremely compacted form factor. This particular font is optimized for use at 27 pixels per em, hence the name. 

The other variant, Slabo 13px, was named after its intended pixel size as well. It is especially useful when contacting customers like airline ticket representatives and university professors who are sure to appreciate its more readable rendition over standard Helvetica 12px!

11. Alegreya Sans

Alegreya is a sans serif typeface that was first designed for literature and conveys a dynamic feeling to the reader whilst also giving a pleasant atmosphere from its varied rhythm.

Small caps round out the font family, which was designed with humanist proportions in mind for long passages in particular. The Alegreya type system is rounded out by roman and italic styles.

12. Source Serif Pro

Source Serif Pro is a serif typeface in the transitional style, designed to complement the Source Sans Pro family. The close companionship of Serif and Sans is achieved by a careful match of letter proportions and typographic color. Source Serif is loosely based on the work of Pierre Simon Fournier, and many idiosyncrasies typical to Fournier’s designs (like the bottom serif on the b or the middle serif on the w) are also found in Source Serif. Without being a pure historical revival, Source Serif takes cues from Fournier and reworks them for a modern age.

Both typeface families have different personalities because they spring from the hands of different designers: Source Serif was designed by Frank Grießhammer, Source Sans was designed by Paul Hunt. Robert Slimbach consulted on both designs, which helped maintain the overall family harmony. Either design feels confident on its own but also works in combination with the other — just like their designers do.

13. Roboto Slab

Roboto has a dual nature. It has a mechanical skeleton and the forms are largely geometric. At the same time, the font features friendly and open curves. While some grotesques distort their letterforms to force a rigid rhythm, Roboto doesn’t compromise, allowing letters to be settled into their natural width. This makes for a more natural reading rhythm more commonly found in humanist and serif types.

14. BioRhyme

BioRhyme is a Latin typeface family comprised of two widths, a normal family and an expanded family. Each family has 5 weights, and both are intended for use in large and medium sizes.

15. Inknut Antiqua

»Inknut Antiqua« is an Antiqua typeface for literature and long-form text. Approaching the idea of web-publishing as a modern-day private press, it is designed to evoke Venetian incunabula and humanist manuscripts, but with the quirks and idiosyncrasies of the kinds of typefaces, you find in this artisanal tradition.

It comes with a complement of typographical sorts and OpenType features for the purpose. The proportions of Inknut Antiqua make it well suited for low-resolution screens.

16. Poppins

Geometric sans serif typefaces have been a popular design tool ever since these actors took to the world’s stage. Poppins is one of the newcomers to this long tradition. With support for the Devanagari and Latin writing systems, it is an internationalist take on the genre.

Many of the Latin glyphs (such as the ampersand) are more constructed and rationalist than is typical. The Devanagari design is particularly new and is the first-ever Devanagari typeface with a range of weights in this genre. Just like Latin, the Devanagari is based on pure geometry, particularly circles.

Each letterform is nearly monolinear, with optical corrections applied to stroke joints were necessary to maintain an even typographic color. The Devanagari base character height and the Latin ascender height are equal; Latin capital letters are shorter than the Devanagari characters, and the Latin x-height is set rather high.

17. Libre Baskerville

Libre Baskerville is a web font optimized for body text (typically 16px.) It is based on the American Type Founder’s Baskerville from 1941, but it has a taller x-height, wider counters, and a little less contrast, that allow it to work well for reading on-screen.

18. Lora

Lora is a well-balanced contemporary serif with roots in calligraphy. It is a text typeface with moderate contrast well suited for body text.

A paragraph set in Lora will make a memorable appearance because of its brushed curves in contrast with driving serifs. The overall typographic voice of Lora perfectly conveys the mood of a modern-day story or an art essay.

Technically Lora is optimized for screen appearance and works equally well in print.

In March 2019, the family has been updated to a variable font family.
