How to Make Typography Stand Out

1. Choose Your Fonts

This is crucial, because you need to match your font to your message and layout. Mismatched fonts can lead to a misleading and confusing message to the viewer if you just carelessly pick any font.

2. Creative Color Schemes

It used to be a big deal if you used mismatched colors. In this new generation, stepping out of the box may be the best thing you’ll ever do. So keep it unique when choosing color schemes for your typography. You may also want to consider the background of your layout. So just put in the right blend on your design.

3. Don’t Over-do it

Just put in the right amount of effects, colors and patterns.Over done Typography may just ruin the concept of your design. If you go for very characterized fonts, you may want to take it easy on using patterns and/or effects.

4. Put in Emphasis

You may want to make certain words pop out and get noticed. This way you convey a message that would really make the whole design memorable. Balance the font size and position in a way that it is not distracting from your “big word”. You can also use quotation marks, apostrophes or other punctuation marks  like (“,! or ?) to place emphasis on words.

5. Harmony

Make every element in your typographic design harmonious. Check if it goes well & looks good with all the other objects on your layout. Sometimes, you may end up having  the typography will be more distracting than pleasing.
