New webfonts on the blog, and improved webfont categorization at fontshop.com

If you’re a regular visitor to this blog, you may have noticed a slightly new look in the past week. No we have not lost weight or gotten a haircut (thanks for asking), but instead changed the webfonts we are using for our headers and text.

The featured webfont for headers is now FF Amman Serif Web and body text is set in FF Milo Web.

Some words from our designer, Aaron, as to why he picked this pairing:

FF Amman is a distinctive Latin/Arabic family designed by Yanone in 2010. This post at the FontFeed covers the story of its unique design. I wanted to highlight a newer FontFont that isn’t used widely as a webfont (if at all), and FF Amman fit the bill perfectly.

The body text is set in Michael Abbink‘s FF Milo, a pleasant and versatile typeface with a large x-height that works well at smaller sizes on screen.

Our blog isn’t the only part of FontShop with an updated appearance. Web FontFonts are now categorized by classification for easy browsing. This will make it easier for designers to find and try out fonts to freshen up existing sites or build a new one with typography in mind.

    I’m looking for a full list of webfonts that you offer, but I can’t find the page on your site. Please help.

    All of our Web FontFonts can be found here.

    A couple of foundries that allow for web embedding in their standard licenses are OurType and Dalton Maag. But be sure to read their End User License Agreements (found here and here, respectively) for applicable terms and conditions.
