Web Design Typography

No comments

Web design typography is big thing! Lately I’ve been exploring typography and its influence in web design. First we are past default 12 pixel font size and 10 pixel padding. Nowadays it is recommended to start with 16 pixels fonts and at least 26 pixel padding to allow clean layout and enough white space. Days of standard fonts are long gone, and custom web fonts arrived ages ago. Why talk about it right now? Well, I just started getting more into typography lately and it is just more on my mind. using custom web fonts can change the look of the website dramatically without the need of using images. We all know (at least should know) that site speed is really important. Using images where we can just use css and custom fonts does not make sense any more. Not just because of speed, but also from SEO point of view.
