What kind of sans serif fonts there are

Many have already guessed that this article could be renamed «15 Best Grotesques». It’s a fact that most sans-serif fonts are grotesque.

Even if we talk only about grotesques, you can find a huge number of fonts that are different from each other.

Grotesques can be divided by style, by area of application, by belonging to a historical era, and by other criteria. We will consider only the most common categories.

The most common classification of grotesques includes:

  • old;
  • new (neo-grotesque);
  • humanist;
  • geometrics.

Based on scope, grotesques can be classified as follows:

  • text;
  • heading.

Among sans-serif fonts, there is only one antiqua — stressed sans, which is sometimes called contrasting sans serif.

Sans-serif fonts can be opposite in character and characteristics: classic neutral or decorative, rounded or narrowed. The selection includes different fonts so that you can choose the right one for different areas.

Where sans serif fonts are used

The scope of grotesques is limitless.

On the web, sans serif fonts are used on websites, in applications, and in corporate documents. Increasingly more often, grotesques are chosen for game interfaces, packaging and identity design. Sans serif fonts began to appear more often in the layout of books, catalogs and magazines.

This category of fonts is often referred to as «workhorses». A characteristic feature of such fonts is their concise nature, extensive character set and well-thought-out technical component. This is the font in the collection that looks attractive in almost any project.

As a rule, it is a geometric, humanist or new grotesque. You may come across the term «Swiss Style» used in reference to sans serif fonts. Most often, the criteria for «Swiss Style» include minimalistic design, good readability of typed text and versatility of use.

There are many «workhorses» in the TypeType collection, but the main trio is TT Commons™ Pro, TT Norms® Pro and TT Hoves Pro.
