Suppose you are looking to update your website or start a new blog. In that case, there are many resources available that can provide valuable insight and advice. Our selection of blogs covers a wide range of topics related to website design, content creation, SEO, marketing, and more.
These blogs can help you get started, stay up to date on the latest trends and technologies, and provide helpful tips and tutorials. With this information, your website can be aesthetically pleasing and effectively reach your target audience.
Among these blogs, typography is one of the first to consider. Through typography, you can achieve a visual appeal in your content by controlling the text’s font, size, colour, and style. Furthermore, typography can also strengthen the message you are trying to convey and create an overall aesthetic for your website.
Try and think about directing a reader’s eye to the most important content first, Headings, Subheadings, Quotes, and Highlight introductory paragraphs. These elements vastly increase readership as they instantly inform a reader about the article. The right typography will make your website more visually appealing and easier to read and navigate. That said, it is essential to consider the various aspects of typography when creating or designing a website.
Typography uses text styling on your website, e.g., H1 tags, H2 Tags, and H3 Tags, and how to incorporate bold text, italics, underlines, text size and different fonts. Here are some of our top tips to remember to carry out through all the pages of your site to ensure consistency and a great user experience:
When formatting body text, you must ensure that you do not use underlining. Underlines can create confusion and make the text harder to read, as they can be mistaken for links. Instead, use italics, bold, or a different font (be careful to only use a selection of fonts 2-3 at the most) to emphasize words or phrases.
Additionally, avoid using all caps, as this will make text very difficult to read and may come across as shouting. Ensure you are highly consistent with the fonts and formatting used throughout the document, as this can help create a professional and organized look.
It is important to use italics sparingly when creating digital content, as it can make it difficult for readers to read the text on their screens. Italics should only be used when necessary to add emphasis or to create a visual contrast between words or phrases.
When used too often, italics can make it harder for readers to differentiate between different text parts, leading to clarity issues. Therefore, it is essential to use italics selectively to create visual interest and emphasis without making the text too difficult to read. Good use of italics could be for Quotes.
Headlines And Links
Establish a unified style for headlines and links, especially regarding capitalization. Using all capital letters and proper capitalization, while visually appealing, can take time to read. Utilizing sentence cases, such as “Start engaging leads on your site,” provides a cleaner, more accessible look.
Keep headlines around five words. This is good practice for SEO purposes, but you will need to consider your font size (point size) or ensure your design supports text wrapping or sub-headlines.
Check that your design renders well across different browsers, as many will increase text/type size. And also consistent across Desktop and mobile devices.
Use a slight difference between the heading and body copy text/type size for a smooth look and a big difference for high impact. The rule of thirds can help (the main heading is around 48pt (this is your H1 tag and should appear only once on a page), the sub-heading would be 32pt and the paragraph text around 16pt). But keep this consistent across the site.
When creating content for a website, it is essential to avoid stretching text and other content across the entire width of the browser window. This can make it difficult for readers to read the content, as their eyes have to travel too far from one side of the window to the other. To make the content easier to read, it is recommended to break it into multiple columns.
This increases the readability of the content by allowing readers to focus on shorter lines of text instead of having to read long lines across the entire width of the window. Additionally, using columns can make scanning through the content easier, as readers can quickly jump between columns to find the information they need. A Digi Studios rule here is to use at least 5 words in a line and no more than 15 words long, if possible.
Also, consider how much copy to write. You should be aiming for around 300 words minimum for google. At Digi, we can look at your competitors and specific keywords to determine the optimum blog length. You will also need to consider adding keywords to your text to allow people to easily find your article and share it.
When creating any type of digital content, it is essential to ensure that you are using consistent fonts throughout. This will make your content easier to read and will look much more professional. It’s best to specify the font styles you will use in the stylesheet and stick to just one or two standard fonts.
Refrain from mixing and matching different fonts, as this can make the content look messy and can be challenging to read. When it comes to fonts, consistency is key! Try using web-safe fonts, or if the website has been designed in certain typefaces due to brand consistency, use the fonts recommended.
