28 Free Typefaces for Web & Graphic Designers

by Jake Rocheleau

July 15, 2013 in Resources

Custom fonts are useful not just for graphics design, but also to use in your own websites via CSS @font-face. All of the free open source font families are easy to find and quick to include on your websites. But graphic/web designers also know the importance of choosing the right fonts in your mockups.

I want to present a small collection of interesting web fonts you can download for free use in any project. These are a great choice for web designers because you can easily setup your logo and heading text without needing to sacrifice much in the HTML/CSS conversion. Additionally you can produce the other web-safe font filetypes by using a service like Font2Web.

In this collection I want to present 30 of the most interesting jQuery slider plugins. Each one should work properly with the most current version of jQuery and they also provide their own documentation.

#1 PHP User Agent

When the browser requests your server the page, it also sends some data about itself, like post data, referrer and the user agent.
