Typography is a crucial component when building any website. Font type, size and spacing determine readability. Well-looking and professional website does not distract visitors from reading. We would recommend going for some standard font.

Set up website typography

Usually, one of the first steps after WordPress and theme installation is customization. You can choose from many Google Fonts. Typography settings in WordPress are under the Appearance → Customize → Appearance → Typography. Choose Titles and Body Text font. You can also select font thickness for Titles. Keep in mind that the whole website should be a pleasant environment to keep visitors as long as possible. Therefore some standards need to be followed.

You don’t want to go for some extravagant fonts for body text. WordPress theme font size is designed to be readable through the whole website, each section and subpage.

Fancy text area

However, often you would like to create a special eye-catching section. So how to create some beautiful and fancy area with a trendy font? That is why we created a Responsive Text block. It is easy to operate.
