Volume 6 - 5.25.2020

My favorite font pairings that are great for any type of creative project!

typography, fonts, bold serifs, bold serif, font collection

This week, I decided to choose some fonts that pair really well together. When giving myself this prompt, I thought it would be relatively easy, since I pair fonts all the time. But when actually sitting down and forcing myself to think up combinations, I realized that each project will have specific words, phrases, or ideas that either justify the combinations, or don't. That being said, here are some of the font pairings I cam up with that I think are generally a good fit for each other!

Nouvelle Vague Black, Nouvelle Vague Black font, Nouvelle Vague font, fonts, typography
No. 1 Adelle Sans & Didot

This is by and away the most "classic" of the pairings I have today. A traditional, semibold sans with a famous and well-loved serif--you can't go wrong. I think my biggest tip when pairing fonts together is to mix up the textures so that nothing is too matched. I love using all caps in Adelle Sans and then using lowercase, italic Didot to give the text some interest!

No. 2 Molga Medium & Heritage

This is the quirkiest pairing of all of them, and really pushes the boundaries on combining type faces. I love the rounded shapes of Molga as a sans serif, which play off of the scripts in Herittage (which are really having a moment right now!). This pair would be perfect for a cool new lunch cafe, an organic business, or even a brewery!

No. 3 Bely Display & Carneys Gallery Script

Of all of the pairings, this one is my favorite! Carneys Gallery is such a beautiful handwritten script, and it perfectly balances out the blockiness of Bely. I see this is a pretty modern choice, but it can work well for lots of different projects.

No. 4 Heather & Mrs. Eaves

Though pairing together two serifs can sometimes cause more business than harmony, I just love how the lowercase letters of Heather are so bold against the small caps of Mrs. Eaves, and the serifs don't fight too much. This pair would be great for more modern, minimal projects!
