How to Use the Simplifica Font Effectively
1. What are the look and feel desired?
Selecting the font used in any print ad or website is not rocket science. The best approach is to match the feeling of the font with what you want to provoke using your visual. You can use A/B testing during this stage to spot the right and wrong fonts.
2. What is the color that best matches the font?
The general rule of thumb is that light backgrounds should always have dark fonts, while dark backgrounds should have light fonts. If you’re using the Simplifica font for branding, then it is best that you create two versions that will be used for texts and background: a dark hue and a light hue.
An essential tool that can be used at this stage is the eyedropper tool that is readily available in many image editing or creation tools. Pull colors from photographs easily using the eyedropper tool.
3. Where should you use the Simplifica font?
If you’re using the Simplifica font over an image or a background, then guide the placement of text by creating a box out of your text. What does this mean? You make sure to constrain the beginning and end of each line of text to start and finish in the same place. Play with the font sizes in each line.
4. Use only one font
There’s been a misconception that you use different fonts to relay different stories. If you follow such a myth, you’ll end up with a dirty- and distracting-looking website or print ad. Instead, only use one font throughout your written content.
The secret to relaying different stories with one font is to play with its thickness, capitalization, size, and spacing.
Another trick is to become familiar with font families. Play around with font families, too!
5. What is a font kerning?
Kerning means the spacing between characters in a font. By default, each font comes with its own kerning. However, you can manipulate it using certain software like Adobe.
