As with color choice, font choice plays just as important a role. The correct font, greatly affects the final message. Say for instance... You use a "cartoon" font for a "high-end boutique". The message get's completely lost if there is no thought behind what we wish to communicate. Font choice plays a massive role in this. All three previously mentioned elements work in complete harmony. Should one fall short, all the others suffer.
