Modern Fonts to Represent the Current State of Typography
What are the modern fonts? Answering this question may be simple and difficult at the same time: simple, because modern fonts are those, which represent the current trends in typography or digital typefaces design, and difficult, because modern typography is so diverse and versatile that it is impossible to find a single definition that would suit all the fonts marked as modern. In the most general sense, modern fonts tend to feature distinct, clear lines, well-structured blocks of glyphs, vertical straight orientation, and minimized use of decorative elements, such as serifs, curls, or some fancy backgrounds. In the era of semantic web, modern fonts aim at delivering the message rather than at demonstrating the illustrative capabilities of a font designer.
