Finding typefaces that work well together can be challenging. While we love fonts with unique features and loud personalities, they can be hard to pair with other distinctive families when you're trying to maintain balance. You want to make sure that your combinations create the right amount of visual interest without generating unwanted tension. Ideally, font pairs should be enticing while remaining easy on the eyes; they must be memorable without feeling overpowering. In a way, pairing fonts echoes a principle of human relationships: opposites attract.
To make the task of designing interesting type lockups much easier, we created this free printable font pairing cheatsheet. It includes 15 pre-designed combinations that you can easily replicate with fonts you already own or remarkable Creative Market fonts our design team has curated for you.
