Trends: Going Bigger with Typography

Trends: Going Bigger with Typography | A design journey | Scoop.it
Hans's insight:

One of my favorite trends at the moment is websites with fullscreen background images in combination with big typography, mainly because it evokes great atmospheres, but also because it's catchy and and easy to read on mobile devices. However, visually striking designs are not for everyone so think twice before overwriting the minimalistic, clear and readable layout where focus is on the content. Because complex websites with a lot of functionality and information must use the landing page to provide an overview to frequently returning visitors so they easily can navigate and consume desirable content, and not getting struck by large fonts over and over again. Anyway, I think it's great for promoting brands and services online. GO BIG TYPOGRAPHY!

We already know how to use acronyms and smileys to adapt our text to the effort of using small keyboards, modular layouts support responsive solutions and flat web designs optimize the performance on mobiles. Further, we must find a visual language that represents the huge amount of content circulating the web, on smaller screens - that's why we need strategies for mobile typography.
