The 4 Major Rules of Font Pairing

Create Harmony Not Conflict

When deciding between which fonts to pair, it’s important to take into consideration whether they create harmony or conflict. Conflicting fonts are often those that are too complex, bold or decorative together. In this case, fonts will seem to complete for the viewers attention. So, stay away from that.

Instead, pair two fonts that create a sense of harmony. Make sure to look for fonts that complement each other without being too similar, the goal is to create a sense of visual diversity!

Stick to One Typeface Family

Fonts tend to go together well when they both come from the same typeface family. By choosing two harmonious fonts that belong to the same typeface family is almost a sure-fire way to ensure that you won’t go wrong!

Within each font there are options of different variations, such as bold, light, heavy, roman and condensed to name a few. A well-known example of this is Calibri (Body) and Calibri Light. This way, you have a range of stylistic options when putting together your font pairing.

The Rule of Opposites

It might be worth remembering the classic line ‘opposites attract’ because in the case of pairing fonts, they really do! Like colours and patterns, typefaces can create a conflict when paired together if they are too similar.

When done in the correct way, two completely contrasting typefaces can create a great balance. For example, a delicate Sans Script paired with a modern Sans Serif will undoubtedly create a great font duo.

Know Who’s in Charge

Knowing which font will be your main font and which will be your secondary font is very important. Ideally, the typeface intended for your title should be the one that is the most eye-catching and stands out. Your secondary font should be different in some way, whether it be in weight, style or colour.

     I just love to use the combo of Serif and San-Serif fonts for heading and paragraphs respectively. One of my favorite combo is Lora with Roboto font.
