Best Practices of Using Fonts in Divi

While selecting the top web fonts for this list, we ensured they met specific criteria for optimal results. But if you fail to maintain the best practices you won’t achieve the desired successes. So, it’s important to use them properly in Divi.

Here are some best practices to follow when using fonts in Divi, whether it’s for web design, graphic design, or presentations:

1. Follow Typography Trends

When considering typography trends within Divi, it’s about balancing, staying up-to-date and creating something timeless. Stay updated by exploring popular fonts for fresh inspiration while prioritizing classic styles that ensure long-term appeal. Aim for a core selection of 2-3 timeless fonts that complement your design and brand identity for a harmonious look.

2. Maintain Font Size, Line Height, and Spacing for Readability

Always keep the text size, the amount of space between lines, and the distance between letters just right so that people can easily read what you’ve written. It can be hard for people to understand if things are too small or too close together. So, make sure everything is set up nicely to make reading comfortable.

3. Create a Typographic Hierarchy for Visual Clarity

Imagine your Divi website content like a newspaper. A typographic hierarchy is like the different-sized headlines that help you find the most important information quickly. For example, headers can be larger and bolder to stand out, while body text is smaller for easier reading. This hierarchy helps guide the reader’s eyes and makes the content clearer and more organized.

4. Do not Use More Than Three Fonts on Your Site

While there are many cool fonts out there, using too many (more than 3) can make your website look cluttered and confusing for visitors. Instead, sticking to a few fonts creates a clean and professional look for your website.

5. Study Successful Font Pairing and Real-World Examples

It’s like studying which colors go together nicely when you’re painting. But how can you do that?

Simply, find websites you love and pay attention to how they use fonts. Also see if they use a serif font for headings and a sans-serif font for body text, or vice versa. You can also look for articles or blog posts about “successful font pairings” or “best practices for web typography.” These will often showcase real-world website examples.
