This interactive guide will help you understand your blog’s typography

Typography is finally emerging as a key element of Web design with the rise of Web fonts, but now many designers are finding themselves a bit overwhelmed with all of these new choices. Sticking with defaults, like Helvetica, Georgia and Arial, is no longer necessary in most cases, but embracing the complicated world of typography is confusing enough to make any novice’s head spin.

To help ease this transition, designer Tommi Kaikkonen has created an interactive guide on perfecting your blog’s typography. In the event that you don’t have a blog of your own, many elements of this guide should still help you start understanding how to use layout, visual hierarchy, line height and color in your favor.
