Bulletproof Fonts

One of the most difficult and crucial parts of a designer’s job is to choose a typeface that fits the overall appearance of the client’s corporate identity. To know how to make that decision, one of the very first things designers need to know is that there are two major categories that all typefaces belong to: serif or sans-serif. Serif fonts are fonts with a little “foot” or strokes on the ends of the characters. Sans-serif are fonts without these strokes.

Examples of serif fonts:
Times, Georgia

Examples of sans-serif fonts:
Verdana, Arial

Most of time, when the brand has a more classic, traditional look, you would usually go for a serif font (example: www.alistapart.com). When the brand is more modern, sleek and clean, you would usually go for the sans-serif look (example: www.apple.com).

Awhile ago I came upon this site that compiled a list of 80 ‘bulletproof’ fonts that professional designers like to use for their designs. It’s a great guide for those who needs a start on pick the right typeface to fit their corporate identity. You can see the list here.

So next time, before you haste to choose that Comic sans for your design, look through the list and you just might find something better.
