The Internet and fonts are not something graphic designers, like me, have thought much about since the internet’s inception. Plain (san-serif) fonts, like the text shown, and schoolbook text (serif) were our only choices. That has now changed in a big way.
These days, with a web-licensed font – or Google’s fonts – we graphic designers are having a field day specifying fonts for websites, at last. Yes, believe it or not, the web browser owners have made something common to all – a font-specification method (or two or three). Web designers can actually use fonts that can convey the spirit and attitude of your business.
Just a few examples:
- Kids Stuff
- Our Law Offices
Our Law Offices
- Beauty & the Beast
Beauty & the Beast
- Technical Team
What do you think? It’s like a logo-type has entered the arena. You’ll see different fonts used for headlines – like I have on this website, to make text look like someone has written a note, and even as text with a simple, but different look. Keep your eyes open and you’ll see it being used all over the web, just as it’s always been used in print and on television.
I’m enjoying this improved technology and using it to jazz up websites all the way to WOW. Would you like to try it on YOUR website? I would love to have the opportunity to add great-looking and effective fonts to your website, a virgin territory for beautiful fonts.
