Typeface forms

These are not really logical classifications, but more like the overall mood of a typeface. So, for example, geometric typefaces can be serif or sans-serif. Humanist typefaces: -Inspired by the humanist movement that drove the Renaissance -Driven by the human body, because text was written by scribes, so it had to be efficient for handwriting. -While driven by handwriting, the open counters also make them very readable on screens -Examples: Gill Sans, Palatino Geometric typefaces: -As the name suggests, they are driven by mathematical perfection. Perfect circles, perfect curves, sharp angles. -Ultimate example is Futura. Another example is Rockwell. Realist typefaces: -A middle ground between calligraphic fonts and geometric fonts. -Examples: Helvetica, Arial, Georgia
