How Typography Impacts Design

My last post was over a week ago, the days are running by so fast! Or is it just me. Today I want to share a few tips about how typography can impact your design. When I design I try no to use more than 3 typefaces/font but I can seem boring so here’s what I do to give the design some ‘texture’ – I use 1 or 2 typefaces but use different colours and sizes. In the image below I used 1 typeface, different sizes and 2 colours, see how you can make 1 typeface appear differently?

Bottom line is to keep the elements of your design simple, but not lazy. Try different fonts and colours and see which works best. For fonts I usually prefer bold, closely combined fonts
