The Best Fonts for the Web

This week we thought that we would blog about a sometimes overlooked but exceptionally important element of web design - which font should you use?

We are huge fans of typography in the office and are always on the look out for cool new fonts to add to our repertoire. Check out our full list of fonts that we can use in the design of your website.

HOWEVER, just because there a loads of fonts out there, it doesn't mean that we should go out of our way to try and use all of them! In particular, when it comes to the more obscure fonts, a lot of these are sub-standard and only enjoy a widespread usage because they're free to download from certain websites.When we're designing websites, we need to take into account things like usability and accessibility, as well as how things look.

That is why we've done a bit of work to put together our top 5 fonts to use in the design of your website, as well as our top 5 web safe fonts that you can use in the content area of your website.

Check them out below!

Toolkit Websites get the Buy With Confidence stamp of approval

We're pleased to announce that our founder, Marcus Green, was presented with our Buy With Confidence certificate from Carol Cunio, the Mayor of Southampton, on 4th October 2010 at the Civic Centre in Southampton.

The Buy With Confidence scheme was set up in 1999 to help consumers find good, honest and local businesses, and to avoid rogue traders. Toolkit Websites had to pass a set of tailored background checks. Our company history was reviewed and a Trading Standards representative visited us as well as some of clients being approached for their views on our service.

We're very pleased to have achieved Buy With Confidence status, as it is not given out lightly, and the certificate will take pride of place in our office.
