Sometimes as we often find it difficult to classify several types of font types. Let’s make it simpler. Actually at the moment we can classify typefaces into four basic groups: serif, sans serif, scripts, and display. In my opinion, this type of typeface is most often used in the industry today.

This classification can help us to choose, identify and combine various types of faces. This is a classification of the various fonts you should know.
