Last year we showcased 55 Examples of Huge Typography in Web Design and since typography is always an important aspect of web design, we decided to gather a new list of websites that use big typography. From tag lines, to headers to whole texts, there are plenty of great examples to show. Check it out, and start thinking about going big on your next project.

    Some really great examples of typography. Big type on these home-pages give an instant impact of importance. Love the way type is used in most of these designs above.

    My favorite ones have to be Miiks and Matt Hamm’s typography.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent collection. Another thumbs up for Miiks, whose play on white space caught my eye immediately. I also love Denise Chandler’s illustrative touch.

    Great designs. I see most use a big picture in the layout and just type on top. Nice perspective I’ll try it!

    Yes. Your selection of websites with an especially typography stil is nice. There are some great ideas to improve the usability of a webside. The focus of a webside could be clearer and directly for the user of this webside.
