Pairing fonts properly can often be a struggle. The key to aesthetically pleasing font pairing is to use fonts that complement, not conflict with one another. Opposites attract when it comes to combining fonts. Too similar of fonts paired with each other compete for attention while contrasting fonts create a harmonious look. A contrast in font pairing can be created by 1) combining lowercase fonts with uppercase fonts, 2) experimenting with letter spacing and font size, and 3) using a distinctive font (often referred to as a display font) in conjunction with a simple, conservative font.
In blog design it’s best to keep the fonts used in your design to only two or three. Allow one font to be the star of the show and use the others as accent fonts throughout the design. Because font pairing can be a little tricky, I thought I’d bring you today eight of my favorite font pairs to help give your next project a little font duo inspiration.
