Understanding Typographic Hierarchy
Typographic hierarchy is a system for organizing type that establishes an order of importance within the data, allowing the reader to easily find what they are looking for and navigate the content. It helps guide the reader’s eye to where a section begins and ends, whilst enabling the user to isolate certain information based on the consistent use of style throughout a body of text.
Contributing to their series on web typography, Jeremy’s article, “Understanding Typographic Hierarchy,” walks readers through five major techniques for creating hierarchy in type on the web: size, weight, color, position, and type contrast.
