Final Notes

Fonts have the power of creating a viewer experience of your brand for the onlooker/potential customer. It can change the way the content that is presented is perceived.

Creating an experience starts with simplicity and choosing a font style that does not overwhelm the content is critical in this journey.

A good balance of font design and content will create the almost-perfect user experience in the mind of your potential customer.

It is important to use fonts that are readable and legible. The design ought not to distract the reader/customer from the content but should add value to the presentation.

Using “Display typefaces” (that are meant to stand out and ideal for titles etc) for the textual matter will completely put off customers from reading your content whereas using a very simplistic design for a heading will not catch the readers’ attention.

Hence, paying attention to choosing the right font is critical to make your advertising and marketing campaign a commercial success.
