What is a display font?

A display font is designed to be readable in bigger font sizes, such as headlines rather than body copy or long form text.

A display font is sometimes called headline font or logo font and is designed to be used in larger formats and bigger font sizes, such as for headlines rather than body or long form text. The opposite of a display font is a “text font.” A text font is designed to be readable in small font sizes.

What are the design differences for display fonts?

  • Display fonts usually have more details, such as finer stem strokes or thinner serifs.

  • Display fonts can be more decorative and harder to read. Good examples are Lace and Pout.

  • Display fonts stand out more and are often more unique and memorable which makes them great for logo design.
