Fonts can be fussy, fusty and frustrating. The fonts available in most applications are pretty generic and when you start looking at web-friendly fonts, the choice is depleted even further. After spending hours finding exactly the font I wanted, I then realised I needed to subscribe, enter far too much personal data, receive verifications emails and so on before I can even consider accessing the font I set my heart on. Ffonts removes all those inconveniences and offers access to thousands of beautifully designed fonts which you literally download and install in just one or two clicks of the mouse. Not only are the fonts fun and imaginative, using Windows 10 it took just a few seconds to have the font installed and ready to use. After downloading, you simply click on the zip folder that contains the font, then open the font file. Once open, you have the options of printing or installing so you just click on the install button and there it is.
Ffonts have also introduced an android compatible app that displays all the latest free fonts before they appear on the website, meaning you can redesign your webpage or blog in the knowledge that the perfect font will be ready for your new look. Ffonts have organised their different font styles in a series of categories which makes finding the right look so much easier. This system also helps you in finding fonts that work well together to create an integrated font appearance across several pages. Writing a blog on 60s fashion? Ffonts can supply you with an era-specific font that will match your content and give cohesion to your page. Ffonts provides TrueType and OpenType fonts as well as web-friendly fonts. Of course, not all the fonts are free but the selection of those that are is vast – you can even choose to have all your letters printed on strawberries if that’s your thing. There are barcodes, sporting figures, flowers, stars and even letters with bullet holes in them. Just browsing the site is worth it for a bit of design inspiration and you can make your blog completely festive with their range of Christmas-themed fonts. Ffonts is a great collection, simple to use and inspiring in its diversity.
