Tips for Combining Fonts
- Do opposites really attract? Well, they do when it comes to fonts! Combining script fonts with san-serif and serif fonts provide great contrast.
- Hierarchy is a very important part of design. A great way to create visual hierarchy is to pair a heavy weighted font with a light weighted font. This makes the heavy weighted and font pop out which creates visual hierarchy.
- Be careful combining similar fonts. Just because a couple fonts look similar it doesn’t ensure they will look good together. Avoid parring multiple san-serif fonts or multiple serif fonts together.
- Limit the number of fonts combined in a single design. Having a large variety of fonts in a single design can lead to visual confusion.
Successfully combining fonts is a matter of trial and error. Don’t feel like a failure after trying just a couple combinations. Like everything in life, practice is the best way to get better at combining fonts.
