Too much information!
I’m feeling overwhelmed here.
Me, too. There are so many choices!
I hear you.
Some people get into typography in a big way. But most have some simple rules that work most of the time.
Here are some things that I often do.
- Use a 14px font for most text.
- Use larger fonts for headings.
- Use smaller fonts for support text, like help messages.
- Use a sans serif typeface for everything.
- Left-align everything.
I vary these rules depending on the site. For instance, I might switch to serif headings, if that matches the mood of the site.
You might find some colors, typefaces, etc., you like. Keep a note of them. When you start a new project, you’ll have something good to start with.
This lesson gave you some useful guidelines. Hmm. Maybe we should remember them.
