TYPEFACE VS. FONT. It's one of the first things you're shamed about not knowing in design school. Most people assume that these words are interchangeable, but they actually mean two very different things.
Designer/typographer-extraordinaire/mentor, Kriti Monga put it best— typeface is to font what a song is to mp3. When you’re explaining how much you enjoy a particular tune, you say, “I love this song!” You wouldn’t say, “I love this mp3!” The song is the work of art, whereas an mp3 file is just the delivery mechanism. The same rules apply in typography.
