Today, we’ll focus on
a few things:
Typeface selection in digital projects
Very basic type rules
Web typography tools and resources
“ Typography is what
language looks like.”
	 — Ellen Lupton
“ Typography exists to
honor content.”
— Robert Bringhurst
1.
Use good fonts well.
How do I know
what is good?

Contrast
[in size, weight and style]
creates hierarchy.
Something old,
something new,
something borrowed,
something blue.
Something Bigsomething small
SOMETHING BOLD
something italic.
type in digital projects: levels of hierarchy.
<h1>Headlines</h1>
<h3>This might be a subhead</h3>
<p>Body copy. Here we want to consider a comfortable
line length as well as leading (or line height in CSS).
Use a font with low stroke contrast (not a lot of thicks
and thins) and select sizes for comfortable reading.
Note: 12pt ≠ 12px.</p>
Button Button
Type is everywhere on screen! Don’t forget other elements such as
buttons, captions, navigation, etc.

go ahead—you can see the space between lines of text.
There’s not a lot of breathing room because the space be-
tween lines and words is too monotonous. Negative space
creates dynamic visual interest and makes a text more
readable.
