Changing Fonts

We’re a design-cen­tered stu­dio who shares a real pas­sion for typog­ra­phy and all its char­ac­ter­is­tics: from admea­sure­ment to spac­ing until hier­ar­chy. That’s why we have a strong focus on offer­ing you enough room in order to find the right match between the type lay­er and your unique brand­ing approach.

Changing the font style and characteristics

Using theme you can make dif­fer­ent font adjust­ments — change font fam­i­ly, weight, and size, set a let­ter spac­ing and choose a text dec­o­ra­tion. You can do that for dif­fer­ent ele­ments of your web­site, like Nav­i­ga­tion Menu, Head­ings, Body Text, Blog Grid Items. Depend­ing on what par­tic­u­lar text you’re will­ing to adjust, there’s a spe­cif­ic path for each one:

  • Nav­i­ga­tion Menu Fonts: Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → Head­er → Fonts tab (screen­shot);

    Nav­i­ga­tion Menu Fonts and Site Title: Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → Head­er → Fonts tab

  • Body Text, includ­ing quotes and head­ings: Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → Main Con­tent → Fonts tab.

    Body Text, includ­ing page title, intro block text, quotes, and head­ings: Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → Main Con­tent → Fonts tab

  • Blog ArchiveAppear­ance → Cus­tomize → Blog Grid Items → Fonts tab.

Takeaways

  • Lim­it your­self to only a few fonts: it’s best to stick with two fonts but if you’re feel­ing ambi­tious, three is the maximum.
  • We rec­om­mend you to always use head­ings in order to cre­ate hier­ar­chy and coher­ence with­in the struc­ture of one page or another.
