I have researched different types of fonts. There are usually two catogories in which fonts fit into. One being Serif Fonts and the other being Sans Serif fonts. Serif fonts feature serifs whilst Sans Serif fonts do not. In terms of what they communicate, Serif fonts are seen to be more formal whilst Sans being informal. Examples of Serif fonts would be Times New Roman and Garamound. Examples of Sans Serif fonts would be Arial and Tahoma.
