Once you have built your style guide, it's important to bring your font choices into Sketch. Utilizing text styles in Sketch can help speed up your visual design process. In this video, we discuss how to use text styles.
- [Instructor] And now that we got our Google Font…downloaded and installed on our system,…let's go ahead and get started with our text styles.…Now, similar to color styles we can go ahead…and use text styles in much the same way.…Not only is it a similar way in which we set up…the text styles but it's also used similarly…throughout Sketch.…So once again, let's go back to the Landon Hotel…and take a look at the different fonts here…on their website.…
We see this huge text at the top.…It's kinda like a logo, then there's some text here…in the button.…And one is really heavy and large and the other one's…smaller and not as heavy in terms of the font weight.…And then you go further down and we have some other colors…other than white.…There's some black and some white and this kind of…brown color, blue for link text.…Then we have this kind of light blue and a yellow,…as well as some white body copy as well.…
So there's a lot of different font styles…within this website and we wanna be able…to capture them all in Sketch.…
