15 Stunning Font Combinations
Typography pairing is the most frustrating and time-consuming task you’ ll face when starting any design project. For many reasons, it’s extremely hard to get right. Despite the fact that there are literally thousands of typefaces to choose from. It will always seem as though the typeface you want simply doesn’t exist.
You may manage to pick a winning primary typeface for your design. Even then you’ll then need to begin the process all over again to find yet another typeface to compliment your original choice.
So, we thought we’d scour the web for some stupendously stunning combinations, with the aim of giving you some inspiration.
Update: See here for 15 new professional font combinations.
Usually, when combining typefaces, it pays to keep things simple and follow well-established rules (such as combining a sans serif typeface with a serif one), and this is exactly what this site has opted to do.
For the large type, Minion Pro has been used. Minion Pro is a beautiful serif typeface that has an air of luxury about it. For smaller type, you can see Super Grotesk, a sans-serif typeface that appears quite thin, light and extremely modern.
It’s a perfect match that creates a luxurious yet minimalistic brand.
Claire Marion has opted for a very minimalistic look here by making use of Montserrat and Courier New.
Montserrat is a widely used typeface these days (you’ll see it all across the web) and the reason for that is simple: it’s an elegant, modern, sans-serif typeface that is perfect for a variety of uses.
Courier New on the other hand is used less on the web, and as you can see, the styling is somewhat reminiscent of the sort of type that a typewriter might produce.
Rockwell Standard & Lora
Politicians for Change has made use of two great fonts here that aren’t all too different in their appearance.
Rockwell Standard (which has been used for main headings) is classified as a slab-serif typeface, whereas Lora (which is used for subheadings) is classified as a serif typeface.
Still, it’s a great combination.
In this design, it has been used primarily for headings and titles, with Proxima Nova being featured alongside it as the main body font.
The two typefaces compliment each other wonderfully (it’s a classic serif + sans serif combination). Copernicus ensures that the titles are eye-catching, while Proxima Nova does a great job of displaying paragraph text in a readable manner, even at small font sizes.
Here, we have another great sans serif + serif typeface combination, but this time we’ve got Century Gothic and PT Serif.
It’s a stylish typeface that is elegantly crafted, making it perfect for this brand.
The same goes for Century Gothic; it has a certain style to it that, for whatever reason, just seems to compliment PT Serif perfectly. It’s not all that dissimilar from Source Sans or even Proxima Nova.
Kaufmann and NeutriDemi might not be a combination you’ve necessarily seen before, but as you can see from the example above, it’s a combination that works extremely well.
NeutraDemi is a perfect example of a modern sans-serif typeface that oozes style and elegance, while Kaufmann adds flair to the design with it’s handwritten nature.
We’ve seen Minion Pro featured already in this post (the first example) alongside Super Grotesk. Here though, it features alongside Brandon Grotesque and plays a slightly different role.
The great thing about Minion Pro is that it’s a classic, highly readable serif typeface. This makes it the perfect choice for smaller text.
Brandon Grotesque us used for the headings; it’s thick, bold and grabs your attention.
Playfair Display is a classic serif typeface. But as you can see from the image above, it’s much more than that. It has a sense of class and elegance (just look at the styling of the “&” above, for example), while still coming across as a relatively simple font that isn’t too “in-your-face”.
Museo Sans – a sans-serif typeface – is the perfect partner, as it’s simplicity helps to counteract some of Playfair Displays flair.
