Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Developing a typeface palette, part of Illustrator for Web Design: Aesthetics.
- Anytime I start a new project,…one of the toughest decisions I have to make…is the types of fonts that I'm going to be using…inside of the project.…And so I spend a lot of time on something…that I have termed the typeface palette,…and this is basically just a style guide for me…to sort of, in my head, wrap myself around…what this design is going to look like typographically.…And this is something that can take you…a long time to figure out…because this is a very personal decision.…Typography is something that controls us emotionally…and draws us in visually, so it's very important…that you nail it each and every time…you create a new design.…
