Sans Serif

Definition - What does Sans Serif mean?

The term sans serif in IT is used for different types of text fonts and layouts. It refers to letters and characters that lack a developed set of accent lines at the ends of the broader pen strokes that create the character’s shape.

Techopedia explains Sans Serif

In the digital world, serif and sans serif designations have developed out of a more historic use of different fonts. The Romans are generally credited with the use of serif fonts, while other types of fonts without serifs are sometimes called Gothic. In terms of style, the sans serif or Gothic fonts look more basic and simple, without the additional accent lines. These days, discussions about serif and sans serif often revolve around style, and how to integrate different types of fonts into the best graphic design results.
