Shift Nudge - Typography

  • The most critical part to interface design

Font Size

  • Sloppy and inconsistent use of size, weight, and colours --> telltale sign someone doesn't know what they are doing

Rule of 4

  • Try to limit yourself to a maximum of four type sizes
  • To add variety/emphasis use:
    • ALL CAPS
    • Bold text
    • Regular text
    • Emphasized text
  • Common types of text
    • Titles
    • Subtitles
    • Actions
    • Metadata
