What is a Typography-Types of typefaces

Typography exists everywhere we look. Whether it's a book, website, mobile’s object or everyday life- Street sign, product packaging, etc.

In another way Simply a style or appearance of the text is called typography.

Typography is the technique and art of working with text where you design, arrange the type accordingly. It’s more than making the words more legible. 

Types of typefaces

Serif typefaces 

Ever noticed those little pointy things (the thick and thin ones) that stand out at the end of some of the strokes that form a letter? Yup! Those little buggers are called Serifs.

Sans serif typefaces

On the other hand, are typefaces without the Serifs?

Script typefaces

Script typefaces imitate handwriting or calligraphy. They typically used for logos or invitations.

Ornamental typefaces

Ornamental (also known as a novelty or sometimes display) typefaces are used exclusively for decorative purposes and are not suitable for body text. They have the most distinctive designs of all fonts, and may even incorporate pictures of objects, animals, etc. into the character designs. They usually have very specific characteristics (e.g., evoking the Wild West, Christmas, horror films, etc.)

Monospaced typefaces

A monospaced font also called a fixed-pitch or non-proportional font, is a font whose letters and characters each occupy the same amount of horizontal space.

Symbol typefaces

Typefaces consist of symbols (such as decorative bullets, clock faces, railroad timetable symbols, CD-index ) rather than normal text characters


Why Good Typography = Good UX?

In a study by MIT psychologist, Kevin Larson he tested how the type choice, layout, and line spacing could affect the emotions of readers. He split them into groups and had them read the same document but with different designs.

Here is a few typography tips:
