Graphic type

The web is the only new communications medium other than radio where designers couldn't specify typefaces! So most of us resorted to created graphics that showed the typefaces (and sometimes the complete layouts) that we wanted.

There's nothing wrong with this--done correctly.

You can actually use any typeface on the web, no matter how delicate or fancy--as long as you use it large enough.

What to set?

The best type to set as graphics are:

  • Headings that need special style
  • Decorative type treatments

Except when absolutely necessary, avoid setting entire paragraphs as type.
