Poster fonts. We believe that professional designers will willingly agree with the statement that poor typography makes the design look amateur. That’s why they are especially picky when it comes to choosing the right fonts. It’s rather difficult to explain why typography is so crucial for a website, but we’ll take a stab.
"The business of clothing the word with visible form has fascinated the mankind since the earliest days of his history."
Frank Chimero, for instance, compares a typeface to a party. What’s your party? Is it a wedding reception, a BBQ with friends, a graduation or birthday party? You wouldn't request your guests to come to a BBQ in tuxedos, and you wouldn't set the presidential seal in Comic Sans, would you?
Look at choosing the fonts this way: even if visual communication is not your direct responsibility, you communicate visually every day in your letters, memos, websites, and so on. So, having some basic knowledge of typography is helpful, just like having a decent handwriting before we started to write on computers only.
But don’t worry; of course there are levels of interest in typefaces that go further than what you need to do as a designer. You don't need to become a sommelier to choose a decent bottle of wine from time to time, or know every detail about Apache to choose hosting and set up your own website. You can use the same approach to the typography. Thus, some still choose to go all the way because they like the subject that much. As you may have noticed, when you learn how to differentiate between lots of different things of a certain type, you begin to notice it everywhere. In other words, after knowing just a little more about fonts, you begin to appreciate the differences between them, and notice it everywhere. People get riled up about typography because they can differentiate and identify fonts and instantly see how cliche it is, how it could be made better, or really appreciate how it fits into what the text actually says.
Once you get into the typography world, there is no escape because typography is everywhere and your vision has already permanently changed. Still, there is nothing bad in this turnabout. Now we will give you two main reasons why.
The fact is that typography is a science. It is governed by some basic principles that will never change. Poor typography affects readability in a very direct way which most people will notice. Yes, everything is that simple and logical.
To top it off, please note the expressive ability of a font to communicate inarticulate feeling. This can drastically improve your text. For example, a plain font like Helvetica is good for communicating a declarative thought. An ornate font with serifs and curlicues will communicate feelings of complexity, romance, art and nuanced relationships.
