Using Serif And Sans-Serif Typefaces

Article by Alice Hopkins

Serif typefaces have a structure composed of serifs on the edge of each letter to make the letter more prominent and the word easy to read. This characteristic of serif typefaces enables to write long texts. The reader can now easily recognize words in the text.

This does not mean the entire text is to be written in serif. Serif typefaces make a relation and suit better to the content but not to the headings. Most of the good designs you see have their headlines written in sans-serif typefaces. Sans serif means no serif typefaces. These are elegant and simple. If you are not a very learned person in this field of design use the serif for text and sans serif for headlines only.

Serif and sans serif have their own types. Never mix up more than one serif style with the sans serif type. You should use only two typefaces so as to make it easy for the readers to follow the way you want them to.

Using just two and not more than that gives standard to your text. For emphasis use bold or italic style of writing but a blend of more than two typefaces won’t work for you.
