Typography in web design is an indispensable element. When creating a website, the designer has to take into consideration not only the layout and color that he will employ but also the font that he will use on the design. A typography can either ruin or enhance not only a website’s look and feel but also its usability.
In choosing a font to use on a website, the designer has to decide for the family of the font, the size, the color and the variation. All these affect the way the visitors see a website. Using too many colors that do not blend with each other is an irritant to the eyes. Improper choice of size, affects readability and emphasis. Usage of the same fonts that look almost the same undermines the prominence of certain parts of your website. It can also lead to a boring and uninteresting design and so on.
In this post, we are sharing with you some of the websites that effectively use typography. As you will see, these websites establish hierarchy or prominence by means of scale and size – that is, big fonts for the message that should stand out and small for anything else. They also employ colors for emphasis and also to make the design vibrant and interesting. Differing font families on the other hand, are used to differentiate the parts or sections of the websites thus making it easy for the readers to navigate and to find information. Obviously, these websites are examples of balanced typography design. Check them out and share with us your thoughts!
