When creating websites, I usually like to make as many design choices in the mockups, before I begin to build. However, the Divi interface has made it possible, and unbearably tempting, to design while building.

While I love working like this in Divi, it can be difficult making font choices within the theme while building. The other problem is that you can be absolutely paralyzed by choice. Because Divi pulls from the abundance of fonts served up by Google, the sheer number alone is daunting.

I started to look for a full list of Divi fonts so that I can see them at a glance. I didn’t find much, so I wanted to create on of my own. I also thought it might be helpful to other designers.

When I saw how many fonts were in the Divi font collection, I stopped and looked for a better resource. It was then that I was directed to the full library of Google Fonts that are used in Divi.

Instead of trying to pick from such a huge collection, I thought I would create a page of fonts that I will likely use. This is much more helpful without all the heavy lifting.

Now, it’s no easy task, picking “go-to” fonts. You can risk limiting what voices you choose. In reality though, many designers, and certainly myself, typically rely on a small group of font choices. Most design decisions are based on what you do with these voices. Size, proximity, and the relationship with the other elements on the page are what makes typography speak. As I went through the selection, I found most of my best choices in the first few sets. As a result, the farther down my list, the more you will find ornate display fonts and less conventional fonts, as well as fewer “go-to” fonts. After the initial list is set up, my plan is to go through and thin out. That said, I still found it a useful list.

The important function of this list is to create a starting point in selecting fonts. If I can’t find what I need here, there is an obscene number of choices in the Google Font list. The object here is to streamline the font options and of course, not to be paralysed by choice.

The complete Google Fonts list in alpha order.
