Extremely effective and relevant use of handwritten text to form a background and an image. The ad for Australia Post says “If you really want to touch someone, send them a letter.”  The visual shows this literally – a letter hugging a girl.

OUTSIZED LOGOS

OUTSIZED LOGOS

With the web getting more and more crowded for space, an extra-large logo gets you noticed and gets a share of your visitor’s mindspace – at least
until the next Google click!  Whether he comes back to your site again, however, depends on whether he found your content useful or interesting.
This site focuses attention on the designer’s name – Finch, and uses italics, caps and different type faces intelligently in the design.

CONTRASTING FONT STYLES

You can use contrast effectively with thin and bold fonts, graceful flowing fonts or “I mean business” fonts, colored or black and white fonts, caps, sentence case and italics –  experiment with fonts to draw attention to your message.
Caution:  Before experimenting with this style, just be aware that you need a practiced eye for design and a view for the larger perspective of “What am I trying to say?”

CONTRASTING FONT STYLES

The late typographer Carl Dair compared typography to music, in describing how seven kinds of visual contrast in harmony, size, weight, form, structure, texture, color, direction, rhythm make typographic design stand out. The contrast has to be visible and perceptible in order to be noticed.  Different kinds of contrast may be used together much in the same way as a musician would use a chord — different notes forming a harmonious tone.
