When creating a website for your business, functionality and design go hand-in-hand. The ease of navigation and relevantly pleasing visuals both play a part in overall presentation. You are using this platform to reach out to a wider audience, to more potential customers, therefore you should make sure that your website is inviting and will make them want to acquire your services.
The over-all look of your website isn’t limited to the colors and images used. The way the content is strategically structured into your page is important as well. How the text looks in your site, what font you use, how it looks against your background, and its readability play a fundamental role in making an impact to your brand’s target audience. Site visitors can either take the time to read the content or click the back button depending on the impression left by the page’s overall look.

In fact, this article on Font Psychology explains just how different fonts influence minds as a singular and whole concept.

All these can be reflected in the typography on your web design.
