About Typography, Typeface, and Text Effects
Let’s talk about the basics first. See the difference between typography, typeface, and text effects.
Typography is about adjusting the text within a design so that it stands out and has an impact on the viewer. It focuses on the appearance and consistency of letters, characters, and numbers that we can perceive as attractive and engaging.
Typeface is just a group of letters, numbers, characters that share the same design. For example, Arial and Times New Roman are typefaces, but 14pt Arial Semi-Bold is a font.
Finally, text effects are animations like text swipes or text glitches.
We are starting with the list of free animated typefaces. You can watch the trailers for each of the free typeface and decide whether it’s a good one for your project.
