Serif fonts have been used throughout history as a vital part of print media. The small strokes, or serifs, help each letter to stand out clearly.
As such, we can recognize the letters and words better, which ensures excellent readability.
Serif fonts are regarded as classical, elegant, and sophisticated.
However, the delicate nature and details of serif fonts isn’t as readable on the small screens. That is one of the reasons serif fonts lost a bit of their popularity to sans-serif fonts.
Still, serif fonts will always have a place in design.
If anything, they will make your work stand out more.
