Generally speaking, at the superficial mode, people are aware that a product impresses mostly due to the attention for details. On the other hand, the huge majority of people neglects the small details when it’s about their work; unfortunately, the web designers are a significant part of them. If someone isn’t convince about the power of details, then is better to admire an Apple product and ask himself why these are so appreciated… the answer is pretty complex but may be resumed to a single conclusion: the small details make the great difference.
Applying this simple but effective statement into the job of a web designer becomes obvious that the letters, ones of the smallest elements of a layout are very important. The greatest designers emphasized this fact, common people don’t notice the “power” of a font but it’s frequently happening that a layout to be liked by people and they do not realize that in fact the fonts were the eye-catching items. Briefly, people don’t recognize what impress them but at the subconscious level it’s clearly delimited what is awesome and what is decent.
A web designer must profit from this fact and he must select the best fonts for his projects.
