Typography Manual Vol. 2 will have many installments broken into short posts.
Part 1& 2 will focus on contrast with examples on how to achieve it.
Let me know what your favorite techniques are for achieving contrast.
In most everything, content is king. In typography, contrast is king.
Here are a few ways to achieve greater contrast in your design:
- Big & Small
- Bold & Light
- Mixing Typefaces
- Solid & Texured
Big & Small
Example in scale. Your eye will generally focus on the largest, highest contrast element on the page.
Bold & Light
Example in weight. Through thick and thin – you can pair dramatically different weights to enhance contrast.
Example in type pairing. Mix and match different classifications of typefaces including: sans, serif, script blackletter, Egyptan, and decorative
Solid & textured
Example in texture & pattern. Experiment with different textures, patterns and overlays to create variation in tone and weight.
