Typography in web design plays an integral part in setting the tone, theme, and message of a website. For example, you can convey a site’s focus on modernity or traditionalism simply by choosing to use sans serif or serif fonts, respectively. You can call attention to particular parts of the content, and deemphasize others, by changing the font’s color, line-height, style, and size. An effective palette of fonts not only makes a design attractive, but also contributes to the readability and usability of the content. In this collection, you’ll find a variety of sites that showcase creative and functional uses of typography.

The Best WordPress Themes of 2008

Web Tips » Inspiration » January 20, 2009
Source bestwpthemes »

2008 has been a massive year in the world of WordPress themes, with the emergence of a number of professional design houses selling premium themes, accompanied by a steady stream of quality free theme releases. The year has seen fevered discussion surrounding the issue of premium themes and how they interact with the GPL licence associated with WordPress. However, for most users of WordPress the biggest developments have been the improvements to the software’s interface and the release of richer, increasingly professional designs from both free and premium developers. There’s been a great deal of innovation during the year, much of it coming from the premium space and leaking into free themes over time. For instance, many themes now come with custom administration panels that allow users to customise their theme from within the WordPress menus. Such a facility was basically unheard of at the start of 2008. Here’s bestwpthemes.com’s selection of the best themes of 2008. There are 45 themes in all, divided between free and premium themes.
