The challenges on the internet are changing day by day. As we all know Typography Trends are very important for every web designer. Everything is becoming more challenging on the internet as the number of technology users increasing. The internet turns so quickly and so often that web designers can hardly catch up.
All internet users and web designers must need to know what works well for clients and what converts easily are things must know by every internet user. So we have to follow up the trends, specifically with typography because it is so foundational and presentable aspect of every single project everyone is working on.
Serif fonts are coming back into a trend to add more different style and attractive character to the website. Again, moving away from the stark and clean lines of minimalism. These fonts give the elegance and sophistication touch to your work. These fonts somehow resemble the Sans fonts, but you can get the difference when you used. For business purpose website, this font is really acceptable by various website users even designers to create.
Whether it is a color highlighting part of a paragraph, underlining a single word in a sentence of a headline, or using a separate font altogether, making individual elements of your typography stand out is definitely on the uptick. We will see a lot more sites drawing users’ attention to desired areas through typographical means more than traditional design. Instead of white space and eye-catching illustrations, designers in 2018 will simply highlight what they want you to click on and read. Kind of like your teachers did on the chalkboard back in the day when they triple-underlined something for importance. What is old is new again, right?
Year after year, this one just keeps coming back. Of course, in 2018, it’s not only handwriting-style fonts, but the trend will also be legitimately hand-drawn lettering. We are going to see a lot of sites that just not use only hand-crafted fonts that are an idealized version of someone’s handwriting, but also unique, hand-lettered logos and headers. By that, I mean that instead of a font or type, you’ll see a legitimate one-of-a-kind creation.
On the opposite end of the minimalist spectrum is maximalism. If you did not guess it already, the trend of making your typefaces large, in-your-face, and pretty unmissable is coming into vogue much more than it was previously. Instead of simple, small, clean layouts, we see an increase in large, bold, clean layouts. They still work on simplicity to function and on the effective use of whitespace, but the tone is entirely different than users may expect. In some ways, I can see this being seen as maximalist minimalism.
One-size-fits-all might be okay for hats and freebie sweatshirts, but it is certainly not okay for fonts. And sometimes, just having bold, italics, and “regular” fonts aren’t enough. Enter, variable fonts. This is scaling type with different weights and axes. You can customize every last iota of your typography now.
Gradients are everywhere these days. When Instagram changed its logo background to a gradient, the internet collectively gasped. And now, it’s just another thing that happened. And as the web has become more used to gradients as backgrounds, it was only natural that the effect moved into the type itself. 2018 typography trends are leaning heavily toward having the lettering itself feature the gradient rather than the background. Depending on the site, obviously, it could be for a three-dimensional effect or just simple stylization.
The clean, simple web of yesteryear is gone. In its place are large, flashy, chaotic, broken layouts where the user might be a little overwhelmed. At first, you might think this trend is a little overpowering, but in reality, users get drawn in by the chaos and tend to explore sites that spark something creative in them.
Weirdly enough, hiding the stuff on your website is becoming trendy in 2018. The caveat here, however, is that the hidden elements must still allow the remaining content to be legible and understandable. If you cut out part of a letter or letters, the message of the type cannot be lost. It’s a razor’s edge here, folks, because if you do it wrong, not only do you eliminate the content of the site and alienate your user, but it is also ugly. However, when it’s done right, it just works.
Now, I am wrapping up my words for this topic. As we all know how much important the fonts are? and how should be your fonts when using for a specific website? I have covered the reasons and uses of each font style, you can use while making your specific website.
