Wight Lifestyle Photos. Screenshot showing use of new google fonts.
Another update for my screen-shots 'set' here on flickr that i use to keep tabs on all the various site changes i make.
This is the new homepage for http://www.wight-life.co.uk/ a micro-site i've made for SEO purposes dedicated to photos of lifestyle, sport & leisure from the Isle of Wight.
The reason for this update today is that it's the first site where i'm trying out the new google fonts api. It sounds a bit nerdy and clever, but its not very complicated really, and it finally gets over the limitation of only be able to use the same old boring web fonts that we've had for the last 15 years. Here i'm using 'Cantarell' for the main header, navigation & body text, and 'Reenie Beanie' for the strap-line.
The choice of new typefaces isn't massive (yet), and i've certainly not done anything groundbreaking here, this was just an exercise for me to test it out, and see how it works across all the various browsers and platforms out there. So if you're seeing something vastly different to this screenshot, perhaps you could let me know?
