Is typeface important when designing a website?

There are only a few fonts that are able to be used on the text of your website. This is because many browsers cannot read certain fonts and this can cause issues in the way the content is displayed if a web safe font is not used. Your web design company will be able to show you the available fonts. When it comes to the font in your logo and header etc, this can be anything you want, as long as it is displayed as an image file not text straight on to the website pages.

When choosing which font you want to use on your logo and literature, it is important to realise that the font says a lot about your business. For example Comic Sans is quite a childish font but can have a fun side to it, if you are wanting to advertise a child’s entertainer for example, this may be a suitable font to use. Many companies actually have their own font created for them which they can then use in all different types of media. The main point is really consistency, chose a font that fits your business ethos and then uses it on as much material as you can.
