Verdana alternativesDon’t use a screen font for print

Like Geor­gia, Ver­dana was de­signed for the com­puter screens of the 1990s, so it’s great for the web­sites of the 1990s. For every­thing else, it’s not so great. Al­right Sans is known as a hu­man­ist sans be­cause it re­lies on the pro­por­tions of tra­di­tional serif fonts. Sweet Sans, on the other hand, shares Ver­dana’s pleas­ing width, and would be a good choice for busi­ness cards or let­ter­head. Like­wise Breuer, which is slightly con­densed, and has more of a geo­met­ric feel.

I de­signed Con­course and Her­mes Maia based on let­ter­press faces of the early 20th century.
