Whats inside?

  • Type Categories
    Categories make selecting fonts a little easier. Each category has a specific characteristic.
  • Type style
    Similar to handwriting, fonts have different base styles. My handwriting sadly doesn’t have any style.
  • Type terms
    There are 5 key horizontal lines to remember when selecting a font. Next time you smack ’T’ in your favoured design tool, test yourself on these terms.
  • Type selection
    The lazy approach to selecting typography for your product is to select a trendy top 10 web font of the month. This goes against every rule of designing products for people.
  • Type alignment
    There are two axis on a device to consider. Inline and block. Inline is left to right and block is vertical top to bottom.
  • Type hierarchy
    Consistent hierarchy is one of he hardest skills in product design. Define hierarchy early.
  • Type Weight
    As you’ll learn in type performance, you should select a limited number of font weights to reduce the load time.
  • Type Pairing
    The key to pairing fonts is contrast which naturally defines hierarchy in your UI. Your choice of font pairs should come down to accessibility and purpose.
  • Type Performance
    Sadly, when it comes to converting your mockups into a real application you need to be mindful of how fonts will perform across browsers.
