Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the preferred font style for website?

There isn't a single "preferred" font style for all websites. The best choice depends on several factors:

  • Website purpose and brand identity: A playful font might work well for a creative agency, but a law firm would likely prefer a more serious serif font. Consider the overall tone you want to convey.
  • Target audience: Think about the age and demographics of your visitors. Sans-serif fonts are generally easier to read on screens, making them a good choice for most websites.
  • Readability: The most important factor is that your chosen font is easy to read on all devices. Avoid overly decorative or thin fonts.

However, some general recommendations exist:

  • Sans-serif fonts (e.g., Arial, Roboto) tend to be popular for their clean and modern look, making them easy to read on screens.
  • Serif fonts (e.g., Times New Roman, Georgia) can add a touch of elegance and sophistication.

What is the standard font size for websites?

Most websites use a body text size between 16px and 18px. This size is considered comfortable to read on most devices.

Here's a general guideline:

  • Body text: 16px - 18px
  • Headings: Larger than the body text, depending on hierarchy (H1 largest, H2 smaller, etc.)
  • Call to action (CTA) buttons: Clear and readable, often slightly larger than body text.
