Websafe Fonts that Work in All Browsers

Here's our little crib sheet of the web safe fonts that we work with in most of our web projects. I've ordered them by usage and popularity, and shown them with in their font-family groups we prefer:

Sans-Serif Body Text Fonts

  • Arial, sans-serif;
  • Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
  • 'Trebuchet MS', Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
  • Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif;
  • 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Arial, sans-serif;

Serif Body Text Fonts

  • Georgia, 'Times New Roman', Times, serif;
  • 'Times New Roman', Times, serif;
  • 'Palatino Linotype', Times, serif;

Typewriter Fonts

  • Courier, monospace;
  • Lucida Console, monospace;

Heading Fonts

  • Impact, 'Arial Black', sans-serif;
  • 'Arial Black', sans-serif;
  • and of course bold, italic and enlarged versions of our chosen body text font. 

I hope this helps!


New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
