Tips on Choosing Fonts for Your Website Design

The font is a critical factor in creating a website. For

one, it will either make it easy or difficult for your

readers to read the content of your website.

Another thing is that, it also says a lot in the overall

design of your website. It is therefore important to choose

a font that is legible and pleasing to the eyes as well.

Here are some factors that you should consider when

choosing fonts for your website:

1. Font size

- this is an important consideration when choosing a font.

You should determine what font size will do the job that

you expect it to do. For your overall content, you should

make sure that they are big enough to be readable by

average readers.

Also make the size varied for different elements such as

the content, the headline and the header. Also consider

offering an option for changing the font sizes for the

convenience of your readers.

2. Font type

- apart from the graphics, the font type also says a lot in

the overall design of your website so you should choose

your font type carefully. In general, fonts used nowadays

are sans serif fonts which are easier on the eyes. Arial is

probably the most widely-used of these sans serif fonts.

3. Color

- once you’ve got the color scheme of your entire website

figured out, choosing the color of your font would be a

breeze. However, keep in mind that the color should

contrast well enough with the background so that it will be

easy to read.
