Access to Google Fonts

Access to Google Fonts

Hello,

 

When can we expect more access to Google Fonts? Mailchimp has added more Google Fonts to their font library, and it would be great to have more fonts available, since Google Fonts have made "web safe fonts" a thing of the past.

 

Thanks!

I agree. I would like to not rely on images, as some email clients don't natively open images.

I'm shocked that Google fonts aren't an option in designing email campaigns. One of the reasons we rebranded using Google fonts (Raleway, in particular) was because they are so accessible now. And then I started working in CC only to be disappointed with a real lack of fonts to choose from. 
Now that I know MailChimp does use Google Fonts, I am looking into a possible change. Fonts are very important for brand recognition!

As long as we are talking about actual typography (versus simply readable text), let me put in a word for using smart quotes, apostrophes versus foot-marks, long dashes where appropriate, etc. Every time I code one of these into CC, it defaults to the (inaccurate) norm. Good typography pre-dates computers by centuries, and my company doesn't want to be seen as clunky, inelegant or unsophisticated.

Access to Google fonts or Typekit fonts would be an enormous step forward for CC.
