Curious your opinion: I feel I've seen the above mentioned naming conventions for typefaces (speaking about sans serifs) that have a standard, sharp corner version but also have a version with rounded corners (e.g. Fontname and Fontname Rounded). I wonder if they might each communicate something slightly different to a buying audience...
I think of Round as the stem endings/terminals being a full half-circle (no corners); while Rounded and Soft, to me, can be interchanged and represent having the corners rounded to some degree but still maintaining a straight edge.
But at the same time, Round could also be interchanged with the latter two and indicate the same thing.
What's your take? Do they distinctly signal different styles to you or are they basically one in the same and it's a matter of preference (personally, I like the conciseness of using Soft, but Rounded may be clearer)?
