With almost any graphic design or web design project, choosing the right font is going to have a big impact on the success of your design. Google web fonts are becoming the go to choice for most web designers as they are easy to install and use on web pages and are increasingly being used by graphic designers.

Google Fonts are the most commonly used fonts for several reasons, the first and perhaps foremost being that they are free, but also because over time the vast range of fonts available increases month on month. We are going to show you how to install all Google fonts to your fonts folder.
