What Is a Condensed Font?

So, what is a condensed font? Condensed fonts generally have a "long" look. They tend to be visually tall and narrow. You might also see this style referred to as a compressed font or a compact font. While the aesthetic largely focuses on narrow fonts, you can get plenty of interesting variation in your choices too.

Here's a stylish example of a condensed sans serif font. Note that it has a lot of height, and much less width in comparison. Fonts like this can be an excellent choice for display type.
