Choosing the Right Weight

Selecting the appropriate font weight is crucial for effective design. It can affect the overall tone and impact of your project. Here are a few considerations when choosing the right weight for your text:

  • Hierarchy: Use varying weights to establish a visual hierarchy in your design. Lighter weights for body text and heavier weights for headings create a clear structure.
  • Contrast: Experiment with contrasting weights to add visual interest and emphasize specific elements.
  • Legibility: Ensure that the selected weight maintains legibility, especially in smaller text sizes.
  • Branding: Consistency in font weights can reinforce brand identity and recognition.

Whether you're aiming for a minimalist look or a bold statement, the versatility of fonts like these allows you to achieve your design goals effectively.
