Now, let me give you some tips as I promised earlier. To begin with, choose a font that suits your niche. For example, if you need to create an ad for a sushi restaurant, choose a font that matches with the Japanese culture. If you just Google “Japanese fonts” you will see what kind of fonts I am talking about.
Once you pick the font, choose the color carefully. If you advertise a funeral agency, you will obviously not use colors that would be appropriate for a toys store. Lastly, don’t exaggerate with the bolding. The purpose is to draw attention toward a message. If you bold everything on your page, all the elements will give the same general feel so nothing stands out. Combine bold fonts with slim and italic ones.
