Fonts say a lot about the mood you want to communicate, formal or informal, serious or just casual fun. Every font has something to say, which is why a cool-looking font can really add to any statement you want to make in a poster, print, or anywhere else.
A Western Font has an international appeal and appears the same across countries, so it is a good choice for messages that are meant to reach as many people as possible.
How you play with the look of a font can depend on what you want to say. If you want to keep the tone formal, go for a regular style font that remains uniform throughout. With this regular font as the base you can try variations like strokes through the centers of letters, cool shadow effects to make the letters look raised, or a pattern of dusty specks for a cool effect. If you are using a Serif font a play of geometry is a good idea. You can go for a font that look very abstract in its play with circles, semi-circles, squares and triangles. You can also choose highly decorative fonts with curves, arches, and delicate patterns. Try playing around with the edges of fonts for a fresh new look, by adding bumps to the outlines,or getting them to curve inward. Stylish and bold, Western fonts are a very popular category of fonts used in design.
