This week, Fonts.com has a new series called “Fonts for Social Media.” It’s about the fonts that you use and the companies that use them. It also includes tips on how to find fonts that are perfect for your style and your audience. I’ve written a bit about fonts for social media, but I’ll also add a little personal touch for you.
All of us have a style that we like to use for most of our social media posts but it can be hard to find the right fonts that perfectly match our style. There are dozens of fonts out there, but choosing a font that has a similar color scheme and font size can be a big challenge. A great way to approach font choice is to look at the fonts your friend uses.
If you want to use fonts on social media, you might want to try the new Google Fonts. They are very light and beautiful and easy to use. It may take a little time for you to get used to fonts, but you will be well on your way to having a cool style.
I’m a big fan of fonts, but I have to admit, I’m quite picky when it comes to fonts. I am not the biggest fan of all fonts, but I do love the way Google’s new fonts look on my iPhone. For the most part, they are the perfect width, have a dark background, are big, simple, and in-your-face. I love them.
On the other hand, I have to admit that I am a big fan of “other” fonts. Google (and other search engines) may be making the default fonts look a little too busy for my tastes. I find that fonts look great on retina displays, but for people with smaller screens and monitors, I am not a fan.
I am a fonts junkie. I have a set of three fonts that I use for my iPhone, iPad, and Android phones (I use the iPhone’s font family for everything, iPad’s and Android’s are in the “other” category). The idea behind this set of fonts is that I use them as my default for each platform.
For the iPhone or iPad you can use the fonts available at www.fontsquirrel.com/iphone and www.fontsquirrel.com/ipad.
The fonts that I use are “Arial Black” typeface, “Droid Sans” typeface, and “Georgia”, all available from www.google.com. I also use “Arial” typeface for the Android and iPad.
It’s a great idea, particularly if you’re a web designer and you want to make your pages look nice in social media. The fonts here are quite easy on the eyes, but it’s important to give them a bit of thought. Arial Black is not the most beautiful font, but you can easily make it look good on a web page. For my own site, I use Droid Sans for the iPhone and iPad, and Georgia for the Android and iPad.
And it appears that the folks at Google have also thought of this and provided a font for the iPad too. It’s called Droid Italic and works really well on the iPad.
