Font Psychology - What Your Typeface Says About Your Business



You may have heard about colour psychology, (or seen our post on it) but did you know that there’s also a psychology behind the fonts we use? ⠀

Similar to how colours have inherit meanings, fonts also have their own unique characteristics that define them.⠀

Here is a quick summary of each font category:⠀

✍️ SERIF


Serif fonts are the most traditional and widely used, intended to promote a feeling of class and heritage. They're perfect for when you want to create an established look. You can tell a serif font apart by the little embellishments that linger on the ends of the letters which give the type a more traditional appearance.⠀

✍️ SANS SERIF


On the other hand, sans serif fonts lack those embellishments and are generally more straightforward and simple with a no-nonsense attitude.⠀

✍️ SCRIPT


Script fonts are generally more elegant and inspire ideas of femininity, sophistication, and creativity.⠀

✍️ DECORATIVE


Meant to grab your attention, decorative fonts stand out with their boldness. Often associated with brands that want to showcase their unique personality.
