Simply put, love is all around us – it’s everywhere you go. So why not get customers to fall in love with your typography (with a little help from a designer or two)?

We love fonts. La la la love them! So we are going to share how to pair your favorite ones together. Typography design – when done right – can help seduce visitors looking at your website or poster to fall in love your brand. The right font design can make an emotional connection with your customers, whose attention spans are now less than that of a goldfishIt’s not too late to create a font match so perfect… you’d think they were soulmates.

Here are 4 tips to use when selecting the perfect font pair to win your customers’ hearts.

opposites attract font pairings

Balance is key. Remember “opposites attract”. Make sure they balance each other out.  Use one san serif and one script font.  Or one handwritten font and one script.  But stay away from fonts that look too similar. Creating contrast can be magical.

Ex:

regular bold fontsregular italics fontthin and thick typographypair bold script fonts

match the tone with font pairing

Match the tone. Pick fonts that go hand in hand with the text. If you use mismatched fonts, it’ll confuse your audience. For example- don’t use a scripty, dramatic font for a word like “accountant” or “punk rock.”

matching fonts - less is more

Less is more. Select two to three fonts at a time at the most.

match fonts with legibility

Maintain legibility. Above all, make sure font is readable. Headlines should be bold and engaging, while body text needs to be clear and easily readable.
