Three Examples of Beautiful Typography

This week we started talking about typography and how important it is for a website.

In this post I will show three examples of websites with beautiful typography and explain my choice.

  • The paragraphs have small font-size and not to much text;
  • The colours chosen are essentially black and grey;
  • The typeface selected suits the content;
  • The website has just 2 typefaces: one for headings and another for the body;
  • The text is left-align which provides better reading for the user.
  • The website has well-organised information.
