Sans Serif Font

On the other hand, Sans Serif font is the reverse of the serif font above. Sans serif is a font type having no hook at the edges of the strokes, and the “Gothic” or “Sans” is just the other nickname.  Furthermore, the term comes from the French word sans, meaning “without” and “serif” of uncertain origin, possibly from the Dutch word  schreef meaning “line”. Consequently, Sans Serif is often used in computer and other digital displays due to its higher legibility level than Serif font. Moreover, it also presents simplicity, purity, efficiency and modernity. Therefore, try these 5 fonts from Din Studio to boost your projects.
