Figma is a powerful design and prototyping tool that has become increasingly popular in the last few years. It is used by designers and developers to create user interfaces, layouts, and illustrations.
With Figma, users can create highly customised designs that can be shared across teams. One of the great features of Figma is its ability to use Google Fonts. Google Fonts are an open-source collection of fonts that can be used for free in any project, making them a great choice for designers who want to add a unique style to their work.
Adding Google Fonts to Figma is easy and straightforward. First, open the font page on Google Fonts (https://fonts.google.com/) and select the font you would like to use in your project. Once you have selected a font, click on the “+” icon next to it and then click “Add to Collection”.
The next step is to open up Figma and navigate to the “Fonts” tab at the top of the screen. Here you will see all of your available fonts as well as a search bar at the top where you can search for specific fonts. To add your newly added Google Fonts, simply click on the “Add Fonts” button at the bottom right corner of this window.
Once you have clicked “Add Fonts”, a new window will open up with all of your available fonts from Google Fonts. Select any font(s) you would like to use in your project and click “Add” at the bottom of this window.
The final step is to apply these fonts within your projects so they are visible when viewing or editing them in Figma.
To apply a font, select any text element within your design that needs styling and click on it with your mouse or trackpad. This will open up a new window where you can change various styling options such as color, size, weight, etc.
In this window there will also be an option titled “Font Family” which allows you to select which font family should be applied to this text element from all of those available in Figma (including any custom fonts from Google). Selecting one of these options will apply this font family style throughout any text elements within your project.
Conclusion: Adding Google Fonts into Figma is an easy process that only requires four steps: selecting a font from Google Fonts; adding it into Figma; applying it within projects; and selecting it for text elements using the “Font Family” option in the styling window. With these steps completed, users are now able to take advantage of Google’s vast library of free fonts within their designs created in Figma!
