Contrast with Type

Graphic © J. Bear
Type contrast can utilize size, value, and color to create contrasting typographic treatments.
  • Add bold or italics to create contrast.
  • Mix large type with small type.
  • Combine serif with sans serif type to create type contrast.
  • Set portions of text in contrasting colors or varying values.
  • Changes in type alignment create contrast as does type spacing such as extreme kerning for headlines.
