Why Mobile Design Typography is Important and Challenging?

  1. 1. "Web design is 95% typography : 95% of the information on the web is written language. It is only logical to say that a web designer should get good training in the main discipline of shaping written information, in other words: typography." - By Oliver Reichenstein. What is Mobile Design Typography? Mobile Design Typography is an emerging technology which is the foundation of web design. As mobile has small screen, so for you it becomes a challenge to deign good typography with which users can easily read your site, should work in different user environments and should be visually appealing. It should be designed very carefully as it is difficult and there are so many things to consider while designing which includes size, shape, position, color, spacing and much more. Some important aspects which are the key focus of Typography:-- 1) Readability: It is all about the text format which is used by the designer while designing the Mobile Typography. The main focus should be the end users because they are the one who will be reading and it must be comfortable for their eyes. As it is all about the words that matter the most. So make sure that the text written must be easy to read and understand. Thus, choose the font size accordingly and it should be presented well.

  2. 2. 2) Contrast: It is another important aspect. No one would want to read the pink color text on red background. Right? So avoid using extremely light colors instead, use dark colors. So that users can also see easily in the sun. Thus, choose the colors carefully with attractive combinations to avoid losing users and help them see better. 3) Space: Space is also a very important point to keep in mind as mobile screen size is very small, so add some reasonable room to the margins, between the lines, words and letters. It really doesn't matter if letters size are big but if there is no ample space between them, then there is no point. So with the help of spacing, there exists no difficulty while going through the texts written. Thus, be careful enough as it plays a crucial part in readability of your text. 4) Responsive Typography: Last but not the least responsive typography is designed so well. With the help of this, the users will get the best experience in surfing as the displayed items will exactly fit your mobile screen and will be easily readable. Thus, it will easily adapt to your screen, regardless of size and will help to easily navigate.
  3. 3. Thus, from all of the above points it can said that Mobile Design Typography is important yet challenging. So for that you need to keep some tips in mind:  You must start with small screens and then make some adjustments and then with larger screen sizes to accommodate.  Opt for multiple columns means split text into more than one column which will keep lines from getting too long.  Keeping it simple will help users read easily and avoid bells & whistles as at small sizes cursives, scripts and other typefaces do not render well.  Keep testing your design concept in multiple devices and also check for different browser sizes. Therefore, be very much careful in designing mobile Typography or you can consult with any Web Design Company London or any other developed countries. So that you will get your exact consequence and
