Font Pairings

It’s typical for a designer to spend a reasonable amount of time deciding on which typefaces to pair up. This process can go rather smoothly, or it can be a painful, drawn-out process. You want to find a pair that works well together, a harmonious union that doesn’t fight your eye for attention, and yet is still visually striking. Overall, this task is probably the most frustrating and time-consuming aspect of any design project since it can be hard to get right.
