Last week I was working on a new project for you all, and I needed to use a font from Google. After a bit of research and tinkering, I figured out how to download the right Google font and install it on my Mac.
I wanted to share with you what I learned for two reasons:
- Beauty is important. Beauty and excellence rarely occur apart. This is true in life and in education. Spending a little bit of time thinking through typography, layout, colors, etc. can dramatically improve your work.
- I wanted to show off my new screencast software!
So I made a quick little tutorial explaining how to install a Google font on your Mac (it’s useful even for PC users). Here it is:
PC users would still download the font in the same way. You’d just install the .ttf files in a different location. Do some quick Google research to figure out where to paste the .ttf files.
Your Turn: What other kinds of tutorials would be helpful to you?
