Top Ten Sans-Serif Fonts. 

 August 11, 2019

If you have read any of our other articles, you probably have learned a bit about typefaces. Typefaces are the big “classification” types in which we group the fonts, and we can find four of them: serif, sans serif, script or slab. Today we are going to concentrate on the sans serif typeface: similar to serif, but with similar strokes across all letters and without the adornments we call serifs.

This very professional typeface was created as a variation of the serif type, and started as we know it roughly around the XVIIth century, where it started to be used in books and publications. The sans serif typeface can also be classified in four major groups: grotesque, neo grotesque, geometric and humanist.
