Great Font Pairings

Great font pairings are important for great design.

Font Pairing Rules

There are some rules to generate great font pairings:

1) Complement

It is best to find font pairings that complement each another.

A great font combination must harmonize, without being too similar or too different.

2) Use Font Superfamilies

A font superfamily is defined as set of fonts that are created to work well together. So, the safest method is using different fonts inside the same superfamily.

For example, the Lucida superfamily has the following fonts: Lucida Sans, Lucida Serif, Lucida Typewriter Sans, Lucida Typewriter Serif and Lucida Math.

3) Contrast is King

Conflicts occurs if two fonts are same.

Example: Combining serif with sans serif is the best combination.

A strong superfamily has both serif and sans serif variations of the same font (e.g. Lucida and Lucida Sans).

4) Select Only One Boss

One font must be the boss. This means a hierarchy for the fonts on your page. This can be done by varying the size, weight and color.

“Georgia” is the boss here:
