About the Various Types of Fonts

By |

When developing marketing materials and signage for your company, it is important that you consider the type of signage font you will use to represent your brand. As with any other design element, the style of font should reflect your brand’s character and personality.

As you work to determine the fonts you will use for your brand, here is some information about each of the main categories of signage fonts you are likely to come across.

Choosing the right font type for your brand

The type of font you choose depends on the application in which it is being used.

For a logo, many companies will opt for decorative, unique fonts that immediately call their brand to mind, though there are, of course, some exceptions. A law firm, for example, might choose to use a professional serif font in its logo.

For applications such as practical signage, however, brands will typically opt for sans serif fonts. The primary reason for this is that the Americans with Disabilities Act requires all signage relating to accessibility use sans serif font for it to be considered ADA compliant. This is because sans serif fonts are easier to read and distinguish for the visually impaired.
