Beautiful Typography

Typog­ra­phy, being the art of type in a design, is undoubt­ed­ly one of the most essen­tial ele­ments of good web design. It’s the visu­al art that helps us to cre­ate a beau­ti­ful and neat design that just works. How­ev­er, the fact that it can be on the head­line is that being one of the most impor­tant ele­ments, it is still over­looked by many.

Good typog­ra­phy makes a design more appeal­ing, lead­ing a read­er across the whole web page accord­ing to the impor­tance of dif­fer­ent text, but it is not just about the style, size and fam­i­ly of the font. It’s about real­iz­ing the high lev­el of visu­al hier­ar­chy that can be reached with the use of typog­ra­phy.

Since a screen­shot worth thou­sand words, in this post we are will­ing to deliv­er you tips on improv­ing typog­ra­phy in your web design and even­tu­al­ly 16 web­site screen­shots with great typog­ra­phy applied, and the resources that will guide your typog­ra­phy skill to a high­er lev­el. It’s not just about what you say, but how you say it, right? Depend­ing on your pur­pose, we could try to exper­i­ment more and get cre­ative with our typog­ra­phy. We can be bold and dar­ing with strong, large let­ters, or get quirky and unique with hand­writ­ten type. We should keep in mind that type should always be leg­i­ble, because there’s no point in show­ing off type that no one can read. Type can do so much for a design if it sets rhythm and cre­ates an atmosphere.notep
