Graphic designing is a business, in which font size and font style plays an important role. In this article, we shall discuss about the role of fonts in a presentation and about different types of fonts.
What is the importance of font size in a document?
Fonts help the reader in understanding thatt “What is more important”. If we write every point with same font size, then it becomes difficult to find out the main points in a document or in a presentation. The best way to get rid of this problem is to change the font size, because if we use different font size for main points, then it becomes easy for us to understand the main points. Fonts are used in many advertisements to provide different information and different messages to the reader. There are different types of fonts and they are used for different purposes such as classical fonts are used for a strong personality, modern fonts are generally used for a cleaner or neutral look and bold fonts are used for making statements and immediately capturing the attention of the reader.
Why license is required for using some fonts??

Fonts licensing means license is required for using some fonts. But some fonts are free (means that no license is required for using them). Although some fonts are free, but you must buy a license for using fonts.
Which is a standard font license??
Font licensing is an important thing for using fonts. A “desktop or print font license” is a basic or standard font license, that applies to most of the typefaces that come on your computer or with any other software you install. This license allows the users to use the fonts on your computer and it is also used to make static images, such as designing something for print.
And a graphic designer knows the right use of all fonts. He knows that right use of fonts can make his presentation more beautiful and unique. Some license that can allow you to choose specific fonts are as following:
(OFL) stands for “Only Foreign License”
(GPL) stands for “General Purpose License”

Different license are available but you should choose the right one. The proportions and curves of the lettering will give great look to your document, attract more people and paving the way to success.
