Best fonts in Google Fonts that I use in my project

Hello, this is a brief compilation of the sources I use most for frontend development, are the ones I consider the best sources of google fonts to work on the web for their readability and variety of possibilities, know below the three sources that I use most in my projects in the web.

Working for a long time already in frontend construction I have tried several sources in my projects and during all these years three sources stand out for their readability and quantity of variations, I really like to work with these sources .

Open Sans

  • LIGHT 300
  • LIGHT ITALIC 300
  • REGULAR
  • REGULAR ITALIC
  • SEMI-BOLD 600
  • SEMI-BOLD ITALIC 600
  • BOLD 700
  • BOLD ITALIC 700
  • EXTRA BOLD 900
  • EXTRA BOLD ITALIC 900

Open Sans is certainly my first choice for long texts, easy to read in any size, the font has ten different styles allowing a wide range of possibilities.

Open Sans Condensed

  • LIGHT 300
  • LIGHT ITALIC 300
  • BOLD 700

With less variations, for me, it is a complement to traditional Open Sans, its main advantage is to be very compact, but I prefer to use only in punctual projects as a joke between the two sources to generate an even stronger contrast in the text.

Roboto

  • THIN 100
  • THIN ITALIC 100
  • LIGHT 300
  • LIGHT ITALIC 300
  • REGULAR
  • REGULAR ITALIC
  • MEDIUM 500
  • MEDIUM ITALIC 500
  • BOLD 700
  • BOLD ITALIC 700
  • BLACK 900
  • BLACK ITALIC 900

Much like the Open Sans, but his body is slightly heavier and their simplest curves (e.g., letter “g” of Roboto and the letter “g” of the Open sans) really fight for the number one source position, and also has twelve variations.

Roboto Condensed

  • LIGHT 300
  • LIGHT ITALIC 300
  • REGULAR
  • REGULAR ITALIC
  • BOLD 700 BOLD ITALIC 700

Everything I said about Open Sans Condensed goes to Roboto Condensed, with the advantage of having more style options.

Bitter

  • REGULAR
  • REGULAR ITALIC
  • BOLD

Highlighting a serialized font, I like Bitter because of its “rigidity”, it conveys a lot of seriousness without looking like an outdated source, I usually avoid serif fonts for the web, but Bitter is always in my head when I need to use one. It has three styles, but its variation is not very abrupt which guarantees a good readability for long texts.

Finally, I like to use simple, easy-to-read fonts, I hardly use serif fonts, what are your favorite fonts within Google fonts? Comment below.
