A catching infographic from urbanfonts.com neatly summarising the basic fonts choices between Serif vs Sans Serif. Choose Sans Serif for the web as computer screens have 100 dpi resolution (ipads are 300dpi); but choose Serif for books (at 1000 dpi), as at higher resolution serifs make for quicker reading. This inspired me to change the main font on this blog to Lato.
Lato is a sanserif typeface family designed in the Summer 2010 by Warsaw-based designer Łukasz Dziedzic (“Lato” means “Summer” in Polish).
In December 2010 the Lato family was published under the open-ource Open Font License by his foundry tyPoland, with support from Google.
I might change it again at another date, but for now the blog reads cleaner, especially on mobile.
