By popular demand, we’ve added four new lists to Typekit: geometric sans serifs, grotesque sans serifs, humanist sans serifs, and humanist serifs.
Geometric sans serifs are constructed of straight, monolinear lines and circular or square shapes.
Grotesque sans serifs have shapes and proportions that are fairly uniform, with low stroke contrast.
Humanist sans serifs are calligraphic in structure, often with higher stroke contrast than other sans serifs.
Sometimes called “Old Style,” humanist serifs are the very first kind of Roman typeface.
Lists are a great way to browse for fonts if you aren’t quite sure what you’re looking for. Use them to generate ideas or learn more about the fonts in our library.
