Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Set typography styles, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] Your online portfolio…is an extension of your brand.…Color's an important part of that,…and so, too, is type.…I think we should keep our type as simple as possible.…It should be functional and it should be consistent.…Remember, it's about our work,…and the type is just there to convey…the message of our work.…Now, in terms of keeping the type consistent,…we have Paragraph Styles and Character Styles in Muse.…If you're coming to Muse from InDesign…or even Illustrator, you may be a bit disappointed…by how underdeveloped these features are,…but this is a relatively young program,…and it's going to evolve.…
But, even though they don't offer the same range…of possibilities as we have in InDesign,…it's still a good idea to use Paragraph Styles…to keep our type as consistent as possible.…If I come to the text panel,…and I just click and drag to draw a text frame.…I want to point out that…we have three different types of fonts.…We're going to be using web fonts,…but let me just talk about the other two first.…
