This is a lesson from the Tiny Design Lessons ebook.
Long, centred text is hard for people to read
Centred text is really only good for headlines and short paragraphs of text. This is because without a straight left edge, our eyes have to work much harder to find where each line starts. The more lines there are the harder that gets.
If you use centred text, keep it to between 1-4 lines only.
Line lengths should also be kept short so they remain readable.
Try to match your sub-headings with paragraph’s alignment, when in the same section of content.
Did you know there's a UI icon set hidden within Google Fonts? Their Material Icons are available to embed in a website or app, or to download as image or SVG. Like Google Fonts they’re also free to use.
