Typography is currently playing a central role in web design, with progressive improvements like Variable Fonts, CSS Shapes, FlexBox, CSS Grids and Subgrid definitively changing the way we work with typography in web design.

Current trends in web design see the use of editorial style typography, graphic design sources, and designs laid out in the style of posters - nicely portrayed in this project about Typography Principles.

To inject more personality into our designs and attract attention, we can use carefully chosen font pairs (a combination of two different fonts). Visual hierarchy can be created through typography contrast - either by color, size, or shape and to make compositions more readable complex alignments can be used.

The key to this visually pleasing trend is the use of big-personality typography, which adds rhythm and contrast to compositions. Serifs and display fonts dominate, while mixing typefaces is a fundamental practice for generating stunning designs where typefaces with very different qualities, weights and styles work together in perfect harmony, to create a very strong visual impact.
