The typeface I have chosen for my website typography is Proxima Nova. Designed by Mark Simonson, it is a font I always find myself admiring. I think its readability and clarity on screen is second to none.

The licenses for it are included as part of my Creative Cloud subscription through the brilliant typekit.  It took me a while to take the plunge with CC but it’s proved its worth over and over again especially through typekit. Integration into my site has been very simple.

I believe that readability is a priority online and more generous spacing needs to be used to overcome the brightness of screens. I look forward to exploring more of typekit and trying to get to grips with all the exciting new developments in web typography.
