Top 10 Popular Serif Fonts
When it comes to serif typefaces many tend to be thought of as classic and traditional. We see this a lot when it comes to typesetting a manuscript.
The term serif is a small decorative flourish on the end of the stokes that make up letters and symbols.
And when you come to think about it is rather a fitting typeface for novels, manuscripts etc, etc.
The opposite of serif is sans-serif typefaces, and these are more thought of as modern, contemporary and minimalistic style font. We will cover the top 10 popular sans-serif fonts another time.
When it comes to the finer details of serif fonts, especially the more high-contrast and delicately designed ones, they don’t always look/display well on screens. Especially at small sizes on low-resolution displays (think old CRT (cathode-ray tube) monitors/televisions).
We believe this will change in the following years though as high-resolution screens are becoming more common place. This is more and more evident with the evolving mobile/smartphone markets. I would say we can expect to see more intricate, high-contrast and delicately designed, serifs being used on the web in the future.
