A few of our favorite Google fonts you may have missed

These days there are a ton of font options to choose from when designing your website. Google Fonts is one of the first place web designers and developers start when looking for the perfect font. The trouble is, there are a ton of fonts to sift through! We’ve put together eight serif, sans-serif and monospace fonts that are a great starting point and also pair well with other fonts.

Sans-serif fonts

In typography and lettering, a sans-serif is one that does not have extending features called “serifs” at the end of strokes. They are often used to convey simplicity and modernity or minimalism. Here are a few really clean sans-serif fonts for your designs.

Serif fonts

Serifed fonts are widely used for body text because they are considered easier to read than sans-serif fonts in print. Serifed fonts are overwhelmingly preferred for lengthy text printed in books, newspapers and magazines, but look beautiful on the web as well.
