FontFonter Update: Preview Web FontFonts on Any Site

Almost a year ago, we first announced FontFonter, a tool which allows you to temporarily replace sans and serif fonts on almost any website with a selection of Web FontFonts. Since then, FontFont has greatly expanded its Web FontFont selection, and that expansion has carried over to FontFonter: you can now preview over 40 Web FontFonts, ranging from trusty standbys like FF DIN Web, to some of the newer designs like FF More Web and FF Sanuk Web.

The process is simple: Go to FontFonter.com, type in a website URL, and FontFont It! You’ll then be able to specify which Web FontFonts you want to preview in a control panel at the top of the page; below will be the website you entered, with the chosen fonts replacing the default fonts used for that website. You can choose to replace all fonts with a single Web FontFont, or you can specify replacements for sans and serifs, respectively.

(Note that FontFonter doesn’t quite work as expected on 100% of sites. It will not work with secure sites [https], and will occasionally conflict with some sites’ Javascript or other code.)

Here are some examples to entice you:

FF Clan Web on Apple.com

FF Milo Serif Web on Google.com

Lukasz Dziedzic‘s serif and sans siblings FF More Web (navigation, headline) and FF Good Web (body) on Guardian.co.uk

FF Spinoza Web (navigation, headlines) and FF Basic Gothic Web (body) on NPR.org

FF Suhmo Web (headlines) and FF Hydra Text Web (body) on printmag.com

FF Chambers Sans Web on Flickr.com

FF Sanuk Web on tdc.org

April ’11 Staff Picks

Our April 2011 Staff Picks have arrived! Let these favorite fonts shower your designs with inspiration in the coming month.

Hotel

We here at FontShop San Francisco love the Bay Area, and we love retro, so Jim Parkinson‘s showcard lettering typeface Hotel, inspired by signage still seen in Oakland, CA, is a staff pick shoe-in.

Le Monde Courrier

Download Le Monde Courrier specimen PDF(246 KB).

Jean-François Porchez‘s Le Monde Courrier is but one part of the extensive Le Monde superfamily. Named after the French publication for which it was designed, Le Monde is sometimes serious, sometimes playful, but always maintains a level of sophistication. The Courrier variant straddles the line between typewritten and handwritten, and was designed to be impervious to the imperfections of various printed media.

Also included in April’s Staff Picks is Meran Condensed Black by OurType, just one of the FREE OurType fonts being offered until May 31. Read about our OurType promotion here.
