Logo font/image font

I want to use the same font I'm using in the logo/header for an image in the body of a page, to make the top5 section look nicer. Someone said it's good to keep the header font only in one place to make it unique, but it is a good lookin addition, what do you guys think?

why would using the font in only in the header be good, what does it do for you.

just use it wherever you want.

I was asking why someone would say not to use it in both the header and elsewhere. That is what you said you were told, that is was not good to use the same font in both places.

I could not figure out what benefit you would gain by not using the same font in more than one place.

I guess the bottom line, is, do whatever you want. there is no valid reason I can think of , not to use the same font for your other images if you think it looks good and adds to the site.

luck,
robert

First of all right and wrong do not exist in graphic design. There is only effective and non-effective communication. Typical design rules are to select a font for body copy and another for headlines. Use bold, italics, and different sizes of those fonts for captions, subheadings, decks, and other design elements. Depending on the design you might use a third font for initial caps, pull-quotes, or other selected items. You might add a fourth font for page numbers or as a secondary body font for sidebars, but usually two or three are sufficient.

It is also wise to not make sudden typeface changes within a paragraph. Use the same typeface for body copy, using only bold or italics to add small amounts of emphasis, if necessary. If greater emphasis is required — create a pull-quote, set that copy in the margin, or create a sidebar using a different font to really set the information apart.

The Bottomline: No hard and fast rule says you can't use five, six, or even twenty different fonts in one document. However, consistency and readability are important to good design and too many font changes can distract and confuse the reader. Make your font choices carefully and consider how many typefaces will be seen together — longer, multi-page publications, such as magazines, can often tolerate a greater variety of typefaces. For brochures, ads, and other short documents, limit typefaces to one, two, or three.

If an ad is well-designed, it will look just as good upside down.
