{Type of your Life} Sans Serif Pretty


Posted by Abbey on May 1, 2012

How much I adore this sans serif font is really hard to explain.

I {think} love it more than babybel.

Beautiful huh?

So what is a Sans Serif font? {Pronounced SAN-SERR-if}

This is an easy one {totally is what it says it is} this font family are typefaces that do not use Serifs {small lines at the ends of each character}.

The most commonly used Sans Serif fonts include Helvetica, Arial, Avant Garde and Geneva. {Serif fonts that you may use {unknowingly} include Times Roman, Courier, New Century Schoolbook, and Palatino.}

Sans Serif fonts are a little more difficult to read and interpret than the traditional Serif fonts so for this reason {amongst any others including design preference} they are used most often for short text layouts..like a headlines, title or caption {as illustrated beautifully for us in the picture shown}.

What's your favourite Sans Serif?
