Using your own font in questfoxPosted: 17. April 2021
Fonts can support or destroy your research project
It is possible to integrate your own font into a research project.
Make sure that your font makes sense in research terms. Sometimes it is also helpful to not disclose who is asking by exactly not using your own corporate identity elements.
There are several ways to do that.
Importing Webfonts into questfox
You can integrate fonts which allow the using via internet. Please see the description of how to do that on fontawesome.
Import of Google Webfonts into CSS is explained here:
Inside of the google fonts there are different ways of how to import a font into your project.
Using your own non-public font
A lot of companies do have their own corporate design font. In case you plan to use that font this is the way:
- Make sure that you have the right to use the font.
- Install the font on an accessible server
- Integrate the font into the questfox project CSS
Example Official Berlin Font “Berlin Type”
Sometimes fonts are published for the use. Make sure that you do cover the licence agreement when using this font for market research.
We downloaded the font of the Berlin Senate here:
The font is installed on the questfox server now.
You just have to implement the following code into your project’s CSS
font-family: ‘WirBerlin’, arial;
In case some computers/phones are not able to use this font there is a second font defined that should be available on any device (arial in this case).
Have fun creating more beautiful looking questionnaires.
