The importance of fonts
Back to index
Text is something that's very important to graphics designers, yet fonts are often relegated to an afterthought. Mashable has a quick article
about the importance of fonts when designing web content, and how picking the right one can make all the difference in readability, mood and message. Fonts are also different from platform to platform, and when using uncommon ones, especially as part of a web page, many devices may not have it, and revert to an other, uglier one. Unlike with print, where designers have all the control over how their printed design will look like, on the web things can easily look different from one screen to the next.
