The goal: Readability
Type has multiple purposes but the most important is readability:
The ability for a reader to easily read and understand the text.
Size, color, texture, light, font, weight, relationship etc.
Always be intentional about choosing fonts
Don’t use more than three fonts; two is probably enough
Never use more than one decorative font and only in limited doses
Typically, I choose one serif, one sans serif and call it a style
