Top 5 Google Fonts We Love for 2022

August 11, 2022

Google Fonts can be overwhelming to sort through.  There are so many options, and let’s be real, not all of them are really worth your time. 

In that spirit, we go through a couple times a year and highlight fonts we think are suitable for a variety of different projects to save time during selection. Here are our top five Google Fonts for the web right now.

Rubik is an excellent font in its own right, but what if you want a little dirt and grunge? For better or worse, textures are back in some circles, and this Dirt version of Rubik is a perfect way to bring a little texture to your headlines. 

I love how this font looks like a typeset letter from the old-school letterpress posters. Rubik Dirt is a solid choice if you want a slightly vintage, bold-inked look for your design!

Lexend has a fascinating history. It was initially designed by creator Bonnie Shaver-Troup to reduce reading fatigue for those with dyslexia or trouble reading. As an Educational Therapist, Bonnie saw a need for a typeface specifically for struggling readers.

The font is an excellent all-around Sans Serif and makes great headlines and body copy. Give it a try in your next project!
