Just Google typography, web typography, etc. An easy first step is use serif fonts for print, non serif for web. Once you get better at it, try serif for headings only, if you like. It takes real skill to make typography look right, so get ready for a long road ahead of practice, practice, practice.

Thank you for the advice! I always confuse about how you suppose to practice typography, like I think it’s right, probably looks horrible for a experienced designer. I guess i need a teacher.

The best way to understand a thing is to see it in action. Look in a journal(real, printed on paper) how it is done, you’ll never find a better example. ;)

To get started, try to stick to one single font for the whole website. In many cases, it works better than trying to “mix it up” with different fonts, sizes, colours.. get some consistency.

The other point you need to improve – and it’s directly related to your typography – is your baseline grid (or vertical rhythm). Try having the same vertical space between each bits of text, backgrounds, etc.. At the moment your section headings are squashed – give them more space above (from start of section background) and under, let your content breathe..

Good luck – don’t give up!
