When you create a website, its visual impact is greatly affected by the images you use, but your choice of font can also make a big difference. There are thousands of fonts available, and it can be tempting to choose something unusual, or excessively mix fonts throughout a website. However, it’s important to match your font with the tone of your site – take a look at some examples below:
Who got it wrong:
This website uses Comic Sans – a font which many feel has been overused (there is even a long-running hate campaign on the web). Comic Sans is an informal font best suited to children’s projects and cartoons – so it doesn’t seem appropriate to use it on a political website.
Who got it right:
This small business website, created with bOnline, is proof that your site can use fun fonts but still look professional. As a cake decorating website, a creative font does not look out of place. However, for the best user experience the font used in the main text is subtle and easy to read, and also complements the headers.
