Web Design Elegant Fonts
Some fonts can be considered as typically Elegant Fonts as visitors associate their look to grace, style and other criteria of personal appreciation. For an elegant Web site, consider to use Elegant fonts for your Site Title, your Name or Brand.
There are Two types of elegant fonts I am using:
Classical Elegant fonts
The classic category concerns traditional fonts as used on letter heads, greeting cards and so on:
Modern Elegant Fonts
The above fonts are all available for free online as there are many more. Whatever font you choose to write your name or your site title or your brand, make sure that the font is of good quality.
Looking at the above examples, you may notice that English157 BT is not linking the letters while English111 Vivace BT is doing a terrible job on linking, respectively not linking.
Also you may notice that your name or brand looks better with one font rather than with another: above Scriptina is killing the flow in my Name (namely the g and the t); Mutu and BickhamScript Pro suit me better.
In general there are some rules I would recommend to follow:
- Don’t spell your name all in Capital letters (small caps could be OK). Caps tend to look to commercial.
- Don’t use black fonts if you want to be elegant; dark blue or dark gray are elegant, black is not.
- Don’t use white fonts (on black): go off-white, that’s elegant, white is not.
- Don’t hesitate to mix font faces; you could well use the caps from one font face and the small letters from another. You may also just use one letter face from another font, just make sure the global image is elegant.
