Similar to the post I wrote for the InVision blog, Thomas Byttebier covers the essential traits of typefaces suited for use in a UI.

His main points are well put and similar to those I made. But he takes it a step further and covers a list of good typefaces for potential use. And the verdict:

All these typefaces definitely don’t burst with personality or creativity, yet they’re crammed with clarity. And in user interface design, that’s only a good thing.

Well put.
