Mark van Bronkhorst: Sweet Sans.
This first typeface you’ll choose is your anchor […] All other typefaces you select must first pass the “does this jive with my anchor” test.

[…]

Does it come in a variety of weights?

[…]

I’m not satisfied with the standard three weight set of light, regular, and bold. I like to work with typefaces that have inbetweener weights and if possible the full range from 100-900 […] Gotham comes in eight weights

[…]

Does it have a nice x-height?

[…]

Does it have a true italic?

[…]

Georgia’s italic is one of the reasons that typeface will always win for me over other standard serif text faces

[…]

Is it a typeface I’d want to hang out with?

[…]

When it comes to text type, I usually want something even-tempered and laid back but not lacking in personality.

[…]

Is it spaced well?

[…]

Avenir’s more open spacing make it a better text face than Helvetica.

[…]

Does it have even color? [i.e. no heavy spots]

[…]

What width or widths do I need?

[…]

finding a typeface that comes in a variety of widths can be incredibly helpful so you can use narrower width type on narrower columns and normal width to ever so slightly wide type on wider columns

[…]

If it’s a sans, is there enough letter variety?

[…]

“We read best what we read most.” Perhaps 50 years from now, Helvetica will be considered the most legible typeface on earth because of the insane Helvetica fetishism we’ve witnessed over the last few years, but for now our (western) eyes and brains are trained to skim quickly and effortlessly over serif typefaces and recognize patterns and shapes within the letters.

[…]

I try to find sans-serifs that pass the Il1 rule. […] (Helvetica Neue) doesn’t pass the Il1 rule. […] Also check to see if the typeface has a two-story a and g [see her illustration] All this said, 90% of the time I choose serif typefaces for body copy.

[…]

Hosted vs. Self-Hosted Web Fonts

[…]

One of the major disadvantages with self-hosted web fonts is that if the type designer chooses to update the typeface, you must manually update the typeface on your site […] vs. a hosted service which will update the files automatically

[…]

Typekit

[…]

The team of people behind Typekit goes above and beyond to make browsing for fonts easy and fun and they post very handy articles on their blog. Sometimes I feel like I should be sending Typekit extra money because they’re so inexpensive

[…]

Webtype

[…]

If you value quality over quantity this is the service for you. They do endless testing and tweaks to make sure everything looks amazing on both Mac and Windows.

[…]

Webtype is not a library subscription model, you pay individually and annually for each font you use on a site (pricing based on page views)

[Fontdeck, Fonts.com, MyFonts, Google Web Fonts are not advised]

[…]

Other Services and Options

[…]

On my website, I use H&FJ [Jonathan Hoefler & Tobias Frere-Jones] web fonts, which are not yet available to the general public but will be soon.

[…]

Defining the Mood

[…]

Read the content. Write down key points and visual cues but also all the weird random stuff that pops into your head.

[…]

Establishing Historical Context

[…]

If you were making a porn website that specialized in films created between 1980 and 1985, wouldn’t it be fun to choose a text face that was created during that time frame?

[…]

Pairing Typefaces

[…]

One of my favorite sites to see good font pairing in action is Fonts in Use [and] look for talks and articles by Jason Santa Maria, Tim Brown, and Stephen Coles. Also, never hesitate to ask a type designer to recommend typefaces that will pair well with your anchor.

[…]

Here are some tips for pairing typefaces:

Choose a Super-Family […] if harmony is what you’re after.

[…]

Choose Typefaces from the same type designer.

[…]

Choose typefaces with similar characteristics.

[…]

Typefaces can be thought about in three parts [The Skeleton, The Meat, The Clothes] […] A serif and sans-serif might look spectacular together if they share a similar skeleton […] Find a serif for your body copy and a sans for your headlines. […] I made a little chart of a way to think about the stages of relation between typefaces [go see it]

[…]

Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Web designers can easily test and play with many typefaces before committing to them thanks to free trials offered by foundries and web fonts services as well as tools like Typecast

Her site is beautiful.
