Excellent typography looks attractive while at the same time remains completely functional. The beauty of typography lies in that it vividly communicates with the visitors and keeps them informed about what they have come to the website for. Although the graphics play a key role in any web design, properly implementing the typography can create effective results especially when it is not underestimated.

Together with vividly created images and graphics, typography can take a web design to the highest level of creativity and attractiveness. It is not necessary that typography in web design always match with the design. Sometimes, it can be loud; sometimes, it can be bold dominating the overall design.

This round up features big, loud and dominating typography examples that give websites an elegantly unique style and sense of precision. Enjoy!
