Looking for various fonts? Google Web Fonts
Gone are the days when to use creative typefaces you had to make an image or use Flash. If you are looking for more creativity for your site or blog, you can use Google Web Fonts which provides access to hundreds of web-compatible fonts (correct display in the majority of modern search engines). You can choose the font generator online there.
Unlike Times, Arial and other Verdana which are fonts installed on the user’s computer, web fonts are displayed via a browser request; this is the same process as for viewing an image file.
If you are just starting to take an interest in the vast world of typography, the different typefaces and their specifics are probably a little enigmatic to you. Typography is perhaps the most important design element in conveying both a message and an emotion to the public. It is therefore important to choose the right type of font for your project.
Each of the 5 types of fonts has its own character
There are thousands and thousands of different fonts, easily available with two or three mouse clicks. However, it’s harder than ever to know if a particular font fits your business or design. In this article we’ll help you make the right choice, by taking a closer look at the different types of fonts and the designs they are associated with.
The anatomy of the letter
Before we dive into the details of the fonts, it helps to understand some basics about the anatomy of the letter. All of the fonts are on an invisible plane called the baseline, or foot line (think of the blue horizontal lines on your piece of paper at school) and they all have an invisible center line called the middle line.
The parts of type
The capital height is the top plane of an uppercase letter, for example where the horizontal line of an uppercase T is. The crossbar (or crossbar) is the line in the center of the capital H. Some letters, such as the lowercase h or lowercase b, have what is called an ascending part (or an upper stem or jamb), which is the vertical line protruding above the middle line. Others have descending parts which, you will understand, fall below the toe line. Classic examples of the descending part (or lower jamb) are the small loop of the lowercase g or the bottom half of the lowercase y.
