FontSpark

Quickly discover the best fonts for your next design project

FontSpark is a simple tool to help designers quickly find the best fonts for their projects. By randomly generating fonts from a curated list of popular web fonts, designers are sure to break out of the habit of using the same 3 or 4 fonts in nearly every project and discover the perfect fit for their next website or design.

Maybe add subtitle font or other types and use the same way to generate it. Great tool!

@ivandrag Thanks for the feedback! That's a great idea. Perhaps I could have a headline view, which would be similar to the way it currently is, then a body view which could have a heading and a paragraph of body copy.

Nice product, you should add a forward button so that if I jump too far back through previous fonts I return to the one I wanted to see. Right now the only option is to generate again, which randomises the result.

I would like to see this integrated with Adobe Typekit too if possible. Really neat concept though and very easy to use.

Pros:

Cool concept, easy to use

Cons:

Would like to see options for body copy vs headlines

@lukecjohnson great product! One thing I saw was that most of the fonts came from GF, Are u you focussing on Google Fonts or free fonts, or do you also add other not free font, it would be great if you could add a filter for embedable, non-embedable and free and not free fonts. I'm also curious to for if FontSpark is made for body and headline fonts or are you also planning to add a place for logo fonts, it will make it a much more useable tool. I'm sure you just began developing this, but it's a wonderfull tool. Thanks for making this.

@pregenun Thank you for the feedback - I really appreciate it! Currently the tool solely uses Google Fonts and free Adobe Fonts. In the future, I'd love to include more classic, paid fonts, but I struggled to find the best way to include these without going broke. Without using Flash, there isn’t an ideal way to determine what fonts users have installed on their machine, so I’m left to use primarily webfonts. I believe Monotype has a subscription service to use their library which would give me access to fonts like Avenir, Univers, DIN, etc., so I’m definitely going to look into that further. I also currently don’t have a Creative Cloud subscription, but if I did, there would be a much larger selection from Adobe Fonts that I could use. So there is definitely room for some improvement!

@aolko I'm definitely planning on adding better support for other languages! I believe some Google fonts have additional support for other languages and characters, but if anyone has any further suggestions for webfont libraries with extended language coverage, please let me know!
