Why every design needs three levels of typographic hierarchy“Hierarchy—it’s a big word, and an important but an easy-to-implement concept when it comes to typography.”

So begins an insightful beginner-level article on Canva written by Janie Kliever: Why every design needs three levels of typographic hierarchy, posted under Design elements and principles.

It discusses the three-level hierarchy of typefaces, essentially main heading (title), sub-headings and body text as a way to structure content in anything from a newspaper to a book to a blog to a business card. It then goes on to talk about other design elements to complement this structure.

It is a graphic designer’s take on typography, but well worth a read for some top tips.
