... personality The dominant connotations of the use of a particular font (which can be inflected by the context ). Fonts are commonly regarded by typographers as having certain connotational dimensions, such as formal–casual, friendly–serious, warm–cool, and traditional–modern. These can be seen as reflecting different text –reader relations. Designers often use serif fonts to reinforce a classic, formal, or authoritative visual identity and sans serif fonts to create a clean, modern one. Certain qualities of fonts can generate gender ...
