It’s not easy selecting which fonts to use for a website. Back even a decade ago most web designers had to stick with system fonts like Arial, Helvetica, and Tahoma. Nowadays there are dozens of system fonts and hundreds more online.

Interface design is predicated on the notion of content, which means the style and location of content on the page has a direct influence on the user. If you keep this in mind at all times you’ll stay on course and have a much smoother creative process.
Designers have been faced with some of the most difficult tasks to achieve beauty in aesthetics merged with pragmatism. Interfaces should be designed to work quickly and efficiently – but they should also captivate and charm the people using them. It requires fine balance and a sense of creative ingenuity to craft exceptional interfaces.
In this post I’d like to express a few components critical to designing for touch-based devices. Screendesign isn’t a new concept but it has been revolutionized through advancing technology.

Once you can understand the fundamentals of touchscreen design new projects can be viewed from above-the-board without getting bogged down into details.
