Today, Google Fonts turns ten, and to celebrate they’re launching a new site and updated catalog! The team spent many months gathering feedback from users and type enthusiasts alike, in order to understand what could be improved. One example of this feedback loop in action is that a feature like downloading fonts is a whole lot easier (it’s now possible to download an entire font family directly from any specimen page). Head over to fonts.google.com to test everything out, and while you’re there note the updated color scheme, which now meets accessibility standards. Bravo!
Wait, did we mention variable fonts? Not to bury the lede, but the new and refreshed Google Fonts also supports variable fonts. This new type of font technology can help make the web faster, as well as more beautiful—which is always a solid goal. Congrats, Google Fonts. Here’s to ten more years!
