Look for these trends in web typography this year and beyond.
1.Typographic Voice Diversity: Look for websites where the typography is used to tell half the story.
2. Larger Font Sizes: As screen resolutions increase, so should font sizes. Use 14px as a minimum for body copy.
3. Slab Serif Fonts: Slab serifs are great for the screen, providing easy-to-read text and a strong voice.
4. Letterpress and Other Text Effects: CSS3 allows you to create text effects to add emphasis to text without bold or italics.
5. Color Contrast: Although controversial, varying contrast allows designers to further guide the viewer's eye.
6. Mixing Font Weights: Web fonts can include multiple font weights, allowing designers to mix them together for typographic contrast.
7.More Space: The "above the fold" myth is dead. People scroll, so give your designs some breathing room.
8. Responsive Typography: Typography can change to optimize for tablets and smart phones.
9. Handwritten Fonts: For maximum typographic voice, you can't beat handwritten fonts.
10. Dingbats Instead of Images: Using dingbats allows you to change the color and size of icons with no loss of fidelity.
