I’m no designer. My knowledge of fonts extends only in general to the list that appears on Microsoft Word. Don’t know the names, don’t know the preference, but I do sometimes enjoy browsing when I’m starting a new piece of written work.
When you write all day, every day in pretty much one font, its look can get a little dull. So sometimes I look for a font style that’s a little bit different, that marries the nature of the subject I’m writing about, and that gives the reader another reason to be attracted to my text. I only really did this for a bit of fun, to explore the fonts available to me. I always limit my choices to only those fonts that are clearly legible – obviously! But according to this link, I may not need to. Because, apparently, harder-to-read fonts are more memorable to the reader.
I’m off to explore my ‘Wingdings’!
