Typography is one of the extremely essential and the most overlooked aspects of a web design. Good typography can be a keystone to a successful web design. Since so much of web design consists of verbiages, hitting the right mark for typography is a main factor in the success of your website.
Typography is a 10 letter word, but this single word leads to multiple factors. Here are some of the factors of a good typography that must be taken into consideration…
More than any other design choice that you make, type selection is the one that give your website character and context. Pick them carefully, and they’ll either assist you communicate with viewers, or sidetrack them.
The line spacing can be a key deal breaker for a good design of typography. Line spacing is the spacing of lines of your text. Budge them further apart, and it usually becomes much more readable and easier for the eye. Your line spacing must be, as a rule of thumb, about 0.3em-0.5em larger than the size of your font, although it depends on your design.
The Number of Different Fonts:
Usually the web designers pick a single font and continue with it, but it is not a hard and fast rule. You can be a lot more visually fascinating to choose 2 to 3 fonts and use them in carefully crafted combinations.
Concept of the visual hierarchy is make the words and elements you want your viewer to see and percept most prominent be it by color, size, font type or something totally different. Typography can play its role in the overall hierarchy of the website, but it can in reality have its own.
Text alignment is another important factor. There are usually four types you could possibly use: left, right, centre and justified. The guideline for typography is to keep it legible, and you don’t get as much control over that when you choose a justified text alignment.
To put it briefly, a font’s weight is how chunky it is. Fonts can come in multiple weights, ranging from the ultra-black slab to the ultra-light hairline. Changing the weight of some wordings is generally used to put in some slight definition to determine importance.
