Yes, everyone knows that having access to too many fonts can be dangerous in the wrong hands. You don’t want to be churning out papers that look like ransom notes, do you? On the other hand, being able to choose just the right font when you need it can make a huge difference in how people perceive your work.
Unfortunately finding that right font can be tough. And finding the right font that you can use for free…well, that’s even tougher.
Luckily there’s a new (and super-handy) answer.
Monotype has teamed up with Google to offer a “lite” version of Typecast that allows anyone to test-drive dozens upon dozens of free Google fonts using a beautifully designed interface. You don’t even need an account and you don’t have to provide them with any personal info to test it out…just hop on in and start playing with fonts until you find the one you need. You can even download the type you set with the app as HTML or as a PNG file or get the CSS code you need to use your type in your web pages.by
