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. Hermes Maia, Concourse, Alright Sans, and Amplitude 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). Concourse and Hermes Maia are derived from letterpress faces of the early 20th century.
