50 Web Designs with Beautiful Creative Typography

Read the full post

Typography on the web comes in two formats; firstly there’s the classic image replacement technique which allows for beautiful typographic designs, but it lacks the technical wow factor. Then there are true examples of web typography where designers wrangle with browsers to manipulate HTML rendered type in impressive ways, but while browsers and web technologies are continuously improving, this method often lacks in the visual flair that is achieved when designing typography in Photoshop and exporting it as an image. Both techniques result in equally inspiring web designs, so today’s showcase features a huge collection of sites with all kinds of web typography.

As one of the core design principles, typography can really make or break a website design. Despite recent advances in web type technology, we’re still fairly limited when it comes to creative typography layouts, meaning image replacement techniques are still common, but these days we have a massive choice when it comes to selecting fonts for our designs.

This post showcases 50 website designs that all feature beautiful typography in a creative way, this might be through elegant typographic layouts or perfectly typeset combinations of styles to create visually pleasing pages.

    Nice list. Too many sites these day ignore the importance of good typography.

  5. Dr. Beth E. Koch says:

    Hi Chris, Some of your picks were less than stellar when it comes to kerning–granted, it’s harder to control with webfonts than Photoshop. Some of the typeface combinations were a bit iffy too.

    • chrisspooner says:

      That certainly is a great example! I’ve saved it for a feature in the next Sites of the Week roundup

    • Aviat says:

      Wow! Some of these websites are really inspirational Chris.

      I must say that is one hell of a font they’ve created. Lovely site to expose it as well.

      Great find Mrs.Koch.

  6. WDDurban says:

    Great uses of typography overall! Most of the creative type is displayed in the top focus position as I’ve noted in other web designs but I, personally, have found it a little difficult to space out my type when I try to integrate it into the rest of the website pages.
