Choosing Fonts

Regardless of the language you choose for your site, fonts are an essential part of design. Selecting the right font for corporate branding is not such an easy task. After all typefaces communicate to your audience your business philosophies - the choice of font is almost as important as the text itself.

In the world of fonts the first choice is between Serif, or old style, and Sans Serif, or new style. Serif fonts are typefaces such as Times New Roman or Garamond; they can be identified by the curves and ticks at the end of the letters and are favoured by newspapers where they increase legibility. Sans means “without”, thus Sans Serif fonts lack any kind of non-structural detail giving us scripts like Verdana or Tahoma. These are favoured on the web for text at small sizes – again for legibility reasons.

In the world of web, fonts that are used to display large amounts of text are best rendered by “system fonts”, essentially those supplied alongside the operating systems and software you have purchased, these will display at high speeds and are guaranteed to work across all browsers. For logos (generally displayed via images) the choice of fonts is endless, so work closely with your designer, who can help you find the perfect font that provides a look and feel that fits with your company ethos.

This is now possible through Andalucia Web Solutions. Please contact a member of the sales team now to discuss how you can make your website available to the Arabic, Chinese and Russian markets just like our client La Zagaleta.com!
