It’s not always easy to create a design that stands out on the web. Most websites all use the same fonts because they want to ensure that they render correctly for every browser – and because typography is such a huge part of web design, that can mean that you run the risk of being a bit too samey. If you really want to stand out, grab attention and get noticed, then a good way is to use big, bold, impossible-to-miss typography with a typeface that’s not commonly seen.
Display fonts aren’t always great if you want something that’s perfectly readable for body copy, but if you’re trying to craft a headline that entices the user to stick around and read the rest of the page, a bold font choice can work wonders. It follows a similar principle with poster design – big, unorthodox, creative typefaces for the display heading can draw people in.
To help you on your way, we’ve brought together a showcase of fantastically designed, expertly crafted fonts that you can use to draw attention to your headings. We hope you find them useful for your next design and development project.
