As you have probably know, most online readers don’t read line by line, instead they scan (from one point to another). For this reason, designers create typographic contrast and flow by emphasizing certain text. Contrast is important because not all the content within a page have the same value, some have greater significance than the others. By creating contrast, you can direct the reader’s attention to the important messages and at the same time enhance the visual appearance. Here are seven basic methods on how you can create typographic contrast.

1. Size

Larger font size indicate higher priority because it draws reader’s attention, therefore this method is commonly applied on headings.

large font size

On the other hand, you can de-emphasize by using smaller font size.

small font size

2. Typeface / Classification

Contrast can be achieved by mixing different typeface classifications. However, due to limited web safe fonts, there are only two main classifications commonly used: serif and sans-serif.

type classification

Generally, to create a contrast between the headings and the body text, we use serif font for the headings and sans-serif font for the body, or vice versa.

classification contrast

If you want to go beyond the web safe fonts, there are two more options:

  1. CSS image replacement, that is to use CSS to hide the text and replace with a background image.
    [css + bg image = static graphic img]

  2. sIFR (Flash replacement), that is to use Javascript and Flash technology to replace the text with the embedded font.
    [Javascript+Flash = any font dynamically]

Note: CSS image replacement or sIFR is not practical for long paragraph, so they are normally used for headings.

3. Color

Color contrast is a common way to distinguish between navigation, headings, link, and body text.


You can use faded color to indicate something that is disabled or not available.


Sometime you don’t need to make something bigger to get more attention, you can create emphasis by using brighter color, such as red.

red color text

You can also use color to distinguish individual word within a group of text.

color grouped text

When small font size combined with lighter tone color, the importance of the text is further de-emphasized.

least important

4. Cases

When the same typeface is used for the headings and body text, contrast can be established by changing the case. Uppercase tends to get more attention than lowercase, therefore it is more suitable for headings. The CSS property to transform text to uppercase is text-transform: uppercase.

case contrast

Tips: avoid using uppercase in the body text or in long sentence because it will reduce readability.

uppercase text block

5. Style and Decoration

One of the common mistakes made by most editors (particularly the Microsoft Word users), is the tendency to use the underline decoration to emphasize certain text. This is a big mistake in web typography. Readers will misinterpret the underlined text as a link because the browser underlines the link by default. So, do not underline any text that is not a link when posting on the web.


Instead, you can use italic font style.


6. Weight

Making certain text heavier weight (bold) can also create emphasis.


Another common mistake is that people tend to bold the entire line of text. By doing so, the emphasis/contrast of the text is lost.

entire line bold

7. Space

Space plays the most important part in maintaining flow of your design. Good use of space will tell the reader where to start, when to pause, where it ends, and what to do next.

There are various ways to create space:

  • Block break (padding or margin) is the space in between the block elements.
  • Paragraph break (padding or margin) is the space created after the <p> element.
  • Tracking (letter-spacing) is the space in between the characters.
  • Leading (line-height) is the space in between the lines.
  • Indentation (padding or margin) is commonly used for blockquote and list elements.


Let’s put all these methods together in practice.

Dec 11, 2007 at 4:39 am

Very well put and easy to read.

I might just add that the cause of design clutter is trying to give equal prominence to a lot of items using one or more of the techniques presented in this article. The basic rule is: if you emphasize one item on a page, you need to de-emphaisize another.

Dec 11, 2007 at 4:43 am

good and usefull but many of this things are hopefully normal for a designer.
but please wrote more interessting articles, nice to read!

Nice Article.

Gives a short to the point round up of possibilities with type and some of the dangers… Especially on a site with multiple columns and different block of text the blance is always important.

Really great article, all the bases that a webdesigner has to know in just 1 page.

Great work and nice blog !

Hey I like your blog and your articles are grate! But I think it schould be normal for a good designer, to pay attention to those basics… but nevertheless its a good and helpful article!!

Dec 11, 2007 at 11:55 am

Great post! Good typography tips are always good to read! Except tracking is the control of the space between characters in an entire line of text, Leading (led-ing) would be the space between lines of text. Good stuff!

Dec 11, 2007 at 11:57 am

# Kerning (letter-spacing) is the space in between the characters.
# Tracking (line-height) is the space in between the lines.

This is incorrect, The correct Definitions are as follows:

Kerning, is the space in between A PAIR of Letters, manipulation at this level is not really possible with standard HTML / CSS.

Tracking, is the space between letters in a body of text. This is different than kerning, because kerning is just a pair of letters.

Leading, is the space between to lines of text, and is set with the line-height attribute in CSS.

Nick La

Dec 12, 2007 at 1:53 pm

Perfectly valid comment / opinion even if many may (and do appear to) disagree with you. That is until the last two words (you nut). That just devalued your comment, reducing any validity or credence anyone may have given it, and demeaned you into the bargain.

And think a bit more before putting forehead to keyboard next time. You say “I don’t get what the point of this is.” But then you say (ask) “This is all common sense, this is a tutorial for beginners right?” so perhaps you were nearly there and you rather DO get the point.

Dec 12, 2007 at 2:49 pm

Very nice and cool tutorial – It made me thinking about the fonts I use on my blog. There would be some changes soon:) – Thanks, Robert

Dec 12, 2007 at 5:54 pm

Good piece on some of the basics of typography. It seems to be a topic that’s finally getting some much needed attention from web designers. In addition to the things you highlight in the Space section of the post, I would also be tempted to do some playing around with the word-spacing properties. You can really improve the readability (or…scanability?) of your content with a bit of work there.

On a side note, just wanted to say that I find the overall design of this site to be really inspirational and engaging.

Michiel van der Blonk
Dec 17, 2007 at 1:04 pm

According to the Windows User Interface guidelines (see disabled buttons have grayed out text, where enabled buttons have black (or default color) text. Most people are used to this, and that is why I would advise not to use gray text on buttons. Actually for best readability I would never use gray text, but it seems more popular than ever :-(.

Peter Mikolajski
Dec 21, 2007 at 3:37 am

Michiel van der Blonk raised important issues and I would like add one more:

When small font size combined with lighter tone color, the importance of the text is further de-emphasized.

Small fonts needs to have greater contrast to be readable and I would be very careful with this particular tip. Please use Colour Contrast Analyser tool/Firefox extension to check readability because small light grey letters are hard to see even on well calibrated monitors. Uncalibrated monitors can make it invisible and yes, invisible text is really not important ;)

Overall this article is really good, thanks for sharing :)

Space plays the most important part in maintaining flow of your design. Good use of space will tell the reader where to start, when to pause, where it ends, and what to do next.

I will remember this words add to my work. Some times I completely ignored this would help a lot to our design.

Please, fellow designers, for the sake of sanity — do not mix serif and sans-serif typefaces when creating art.

2. Typeface :
sIFR now has 100% JS equivalents like Cufon (or @font-face + Cufon) provided that the license of the font used permits this use.

Very nice article…I have one question.

What is that method called where colour or font style is used to break one word into two…
for example…
if the word “Example” is written… then the words ‘AMPLE’ within it, will be written in a different colour or font…. so that the person reads both…. and to make user read it as “Ample Example” the size of “Ample” would be bigger than the rest of the letter i.e. e and x, in this case….

Does anybody know it?

As much as the choice of type is important, the appropriate use of typographic measurements and white-space is an important tool of the trade when setting type for the web.

Yup. Contrast does work to call attention. I prefer using bold and bright colors…

You was talking about using italic font instead of underline for emphasizes.

Well italic font does not really cut it for emphasizes.

I have tried bold for verdana font. And it just looks ugly.

There are places in sentences and words that no one would expect to be a link. If so, they would be a prime candidate for underline text.

Or how about using ‘underline text’ for extra emphasizes.

The only other choice is color. As you know a different color text means a link. And yet I see you use color text in this web page.

The worst thing that can happen is the reader finds out it is not a link.

So what other choices do we have when it comes to emphasizing words besides underline?

LOL that was the most illogical argument ever. It’s ok to use underline (which is ALWAYS rendered for a link), but it’s not ok to use color because that could possibly maybe mean it’s a link? Don’t cross a side street, you might get run over by a car. I recommend crossing highways instead!

I have learned result-oriented things out of your blog post. Yet another thing to I have noticed is that typically, FSBO sellers can reject a person. Remember, they can prefer to not ever use your providers. But if you actually maintain a comfortable, professional connection, offering assistance and being in contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually be capable to win a discussion. From there, a house listing follows. Thank you

Good stuff.. typography is really important. A lot of start-up web designers aren’t familiar to this, but like me, as i go along, learning and discovering sites like this, I tend to realize that I still have lots to learn, even the basic ones that creates big impact on web design. Thank you for sharing this Nick.. :)

The part about underlining didn’t occur to me. I guess there are a lot of differences when it comes to print and web typography. Also, i think you should check this infogaphic about professional typography by Cardprinting as well:
