Do you really need more fonts on your site? There are advantages to keeping font varieties to a minimum, and some common pitfalls to be aware of.
- [Instructor] We're going to spend a little time now…talking about fonts.…This is going to be partially philosophical discussion,…partially a design discussion,…and partially me getting to voice my opinions.…I think that many of us have seen badly designed sites…that include a multitude of different fonts,…colors, sizes, et cetera.…Face it, it's distracting, it's ugly,…and it makes the sites look really unprofessional.…Now, over time, an unofficial standard has worked its way…through much of the web.…
Most well-designed sites will now have…no more than two fonts,…one for titles and one for body text.…There may be some size and weight distinctions,…say, header one is bigger than header two…and header three is in bold,…but I really believe that common wisdom…is spot on for this…and I strongly recommend that you stick…to this two font rule.…Now, which two fonts do you use?…Well, we have to make sure…that a central point is understood here.…
There are gazillions of really cool fonts…floating around out there in the universe,…
