The quickest and easiest way I think is to use google web fonts, it’s not the best but it is free. At the moment there are over 500 font families on there and 90% of them aren’t great. So you’re going to have to do a lot of sifting through to find the right font. Here’s 10 I like….
- Open sans
- Josefin sans
- Abril fatface
- Pt sans
- Yanone Kaffeesatz
You’ll have to watch out for what they look like especially if you’re going to use it in body text, I would recommend only using them as display and captions for some of them.
Okay another css font resource is font-squirrel. You’ll find some good fonts on here too, font-squirrel also has a generator on the site. So you can upload the font and get all the type that you need to work across browser, they even give you the html and css and even the cufon file (if you’re really want it). If you’re generating your own font be careful what you use because even if you’ve brought the font doesn’t mean you can go spreading it around the net, once it’s there and there’s a link to it anyone can download it.
Another one worth checking out is “The league of moveable type”.
I find the fontdeck site much nicer to use but both have really high-quality fonts like Din, Adelle, Futura, Freight Sans, Proxima Nova.
