Verdana was designed for the computer displays of the 1990s, so it’s great for the websites of the 1990s. For everything else, not so great. Concourse, Alright Sans, Amplitude, and Colfax are sans serif fonts that work well in print and on today’s screens. Alright is called a humanist sans serif because it relies on the proportions of traditional serif fonts. Amplitude draws from the spirit of agates, newspaper fonts designed to be readable at very small sizes (so it works especially well on business cards). Colfax is called a geometric sans serif because it’s built on basic mathematical shapes. Concourse is a blend of geometric and humanist.
