I’ve been thinking about how I might improve the typography in my headlines – be more creative, give them more ‘pop’, that sort of thing. So I took a look around some of the sites I frequent the most for some inspiration (and maybe even spot a trend or two).
Parting Thoughts About Typography for Headings
Big type is in – the bigger the better! But for how long? Unusual date treatments (e.g. calendar style) seems to be increasing in popularity, and is certainly a style that appeals to me.
What did surprise me is how many sites (not web design-related) have awful typography, even well known, highly trafficked ones.
I’d certainly be interested to know about other examples that I’ve missed. I’m sure there are plenty out there.
