Lucida Sans is very readable at all sizes throughout a wide range of professional documents. Apt for office correspondence.
Fonts can be depicted as feminine and masculine, among other traits. Feminine fonts can be described as fine, serifed, sleek, and elegant while masculine fonts can be characterized as being blocky and bold.
Afaik, most empirical research concerning fonts focuses on the legibility or readability. Like humans, each font has a personality of its own. Typographers and designers are often interested in the typeface personality or “typographic allusion” which refers to “the capacity of a typestyle to connote meaning over and above the primary meaning which is linguistically conveyed by words” (Lewis & Walker, 1989, p. 243).
Verdana is my favourite font.
While designing the webpages i will choose verdana for content
creation. For corporate sites i will use Verdana for menu navigation. I feel which is more readable and best.
For jazzy & funky kind of design i will create my own font.
Because i love giving unique appearence for letters.
kishore, satish & senthil,
thanks for your comments.
Futura: based loosely on the simple forms of circle, triangle and square. Modern and legible font.
Swiss: inspired by Helvetica!
Verdana: designed to be readable at small sizes on a computer screen. similar to Frutiger.
Interstate: exceptional legibility. clean, simple and easy on the eyes, few jobs are outside the range of Interstate. the typeface lends itself particularly well for newspaper, magazine and online use.
