Finding the perfect font for a logo can be excruciating. Most design software packages provide hundreds of fonts, but you can spend hours trawling through them, trying to find the perfect font. You then discover that most fonts are actually awful and should never have been allowed to see the light of day.
Good and decent fonts are certainly few and far between, so we are keeping our own record here of the best ones that we come across so that you can use them in your own projects.

Adding Google Fonts to Your Website
To add a google font to your site, you will need to add the following code in the header:
<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine”>
Replace Tangerine with the font of your choice – Raleway, Poppins, Lato, Montserrat – whichever takes your fancy.
You will then need to specify this font in your CSS or inline in your html.
To add it in your stylesheet:
font-family: ‘Font Name‘, serif;
To add it inline:
<div style=”font-family: ‘Font Name‘, serif;”>Your text</div>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Poppins"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lato"> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Montserrat">
This gives you much more freedom with the fonts that you can use. Please note that they will need to be viewed on a modern browser to display correctly.
