Fun with Fonts: Using the Right Fonts for Your WordPress Website
Why Is This Important?
I want people to understand the power typography has on website design and how to use it effectively. You can change a user’s perception of your content by only changing the font.
How Did You Discover WordPress?
I started using WordPress in 2009 for a personal blog and realized this would be perfect for my clients. It would allow them to manage their site without having to contact me for every change. WordPress allows me to concentrate on the design of the site and not to worry about the code.
How Do You Use WordPress?
As a front-end web developer, I create WordPress websites for my clients using child themes or custom themes.
How Has WordPress Impacted You?
WordPress has allowed me to spin up client sites quickly. This makes my business more efficient and productive. The WordPress Meetups connect me to a thriving community that lets me share my knowledge and learn from others.
What Do You Do When Not Working?
On my down time, I like to create with my drawing and fountain pens. On weekends, I ride my Suzuki C50 motorcycle.
