If you want to spend time looking closely at fonts, I'd recommend these books: "The Geography of Type" by Stephen Coles gets you right to the detail of typefaces so you can see their similarities and differences; Pao and Berger's "30 Essential Typefaces for a lifetime" allows you to see what some popular fonts look like when used in practice; Douglas Bonneville's "Big Book of Font Combinations" shows you how many popular fonts will work (or not) when used together. But be warned: typography is a slippery slope, if you like these you'll want to read many more...

Well, according to my experience I would say that font family Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif is always there for you.
If you prefer to have it a bit different and would like to use free webfonts, have a look at this amazing circle monogram font https://thedesignest.net/free-premium-monogram-fonts/ I used to apply recently. Quite unique and handy, Pretty sure you will like it. Cheers :D

Hello. It is not so simple question. I think you should ask this question for professional web designer. There are a lot of different rules and modern trends which you should know. Personally I usually get help from professional developers in such situations. For example recently guys from Golems GABB company made mobile integration for me gole.ms/services/mobile-integration, very good modern technology!
