Font Pairing Guide #7

Hi guys!  This tip is actually more of just a design principle.  You can apply to this to almost any combination of fonts.

By adjusting tracking (how much space is between the letters horizontally) and line spacing (how much space is between the rows of lettering vertically) you can completely alter the look of a font combination.

In this tip, we are using big, tall letters combined with short letters– these don’t need to be fonts that are tall and skinny and fonts that are short and wide– you can do this with all sorts of fonts by adjusting the size and spacing to make it fit the area you need to fill.

Font Pairing Guide #6

The sixth installment uses one of my favorite combinations.  By using similarly weighted (bold or thin) fonts in a mixture of narrow and wide lettering, you can get some really fun looks.

I hope these guides are opening you up to new possibilities!  All of the suggested combinations are just ideas- be sure to experiment with other fonts to test out these tips in new ways!

Font Pairing Guide #5

This one is quite simple- I’m just showing you combinations of several fonts that are based on each other.   I don’t tend to have traditional font families very often.  Sometimes I have 2 fonts in a same-name family.

This is a bit of a cheat sheet to show you which fonts use the same outlines.  Those fonts tend to play nicely with each other and look good in combination.

These guides are all 8.5×11 and can be printed in either color or in greyscale to save as a reference.

Font Pairing Guide #4

Sometimes, the easiest pairing is just to use the same font in 2 different ways.  Many of my fonts have capital letters and lowercase letters than can be used independently for unique looks.  Here are a few of my favorite combos using one font two ways.

Font Pairing Guide #3

This particular guide is an important one.  It’s SO tempting to mix tons of funky fonts and get a completely busy page or image.  Using a simple font to balance out the funky fonts helps keep things visually appealing.

Font Pairing Guide #1

I love playing with font combinations and seeing what works.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some tips for font pairing.  Instead of showing just “I like these 2 fonts together!” type tips, I plan to share general rules that you can try with other fonts.  The joy of working with fonts is that you can express your own creative heart.  Don’t feel limited by rules– instead use them to open up your world to new possibilities!
