Typography is a significant part of any design project, but it may be something we often overlook.
It’s important to know that typography is not just a detail of your design, it can impact how readers read and comprehend your content. Different fonts have different reading attributes: For example, some fonts are more readable than others for longer texts because they create a better contrast between letters.
It’s important that you choose typography wisely based on your objectives and goals. It is necessary if you want your content or design message to be received clearly!
There is no “one size fits all” solution, so please don’t settle for any specific fonts and create all your brand elements (such as websites or social media graphics) for every project using fonts that are “safe” – make sure that the font or fonts you pick “speak the language” and messaging of the brand you are designing for.
You’ll know you found the right font or font combination because it will establish the tone of your content, and grab the attention of your prospective clients.
Choosing the right type of typography for your project or brand is one of the most important elements of a branded website or any other visual touchpoint, and it needs as much attention and care as the design itself.
Some of my current favorite font pairs:
Ubuntu + Barlow
Telex + Oxygen
Bodoni Moda + Montserra

Tools of the Trade 🧰
Whimsical is my a secret weapon against overwhelm and a cluttered brain. I use it to map out my own projects, workflows, processes, and ideas for new products (hint – some new stuff is coming…)

Secret Sauce 🍜
Although I’ve been a devoted and avid user of Adobe CC for more years than I care to admit… I love Canva for its flexibility, affordability, user-friendliness, and all-around goodness (watch this space for new Canva surprises…)
