Web Fonts Explained – FOLLOWUP
February 27th, 2012
Thanks to all who attended last week’s live Web Fonts Explained webinar. We had some notable and very knowledgeable people in attendance, and they contributed a lot to the Q&A.
As promised, here is a list of the Web font resources mentioned in the webinar, plus one that I added after-the-fact:
Fonts.com Web fonts
Font Bureau Webtype
Google web fonts
FontShop Web FontFonts
Myfonts Web fonts (not mentioned in the webinar)
The League of Moveable Type
FontGear’s FontPad Server
Stephen Coles, typography writer and critic, wrote in after the webinar to emphasize the importance of browser previews when selecting Web fonts, as the most efficient and reliable way to test performance, especially on Windows. “Browser previews are currently available from fonts.com, myfonts.com, and typekit.com offer decent preview screenshots,” he says.
