Unless you want a boring website, you will have to incorporate a variety of font combinations, in addition to other interesting imagery, designs, and effects. There are so many cool fonts out there; who says you have to choose just one? You can mix and match until you find the right combination that stands out the most, and the best part – you don’t have to do it on your own if you’d rather not. We found some great examples and tools to help you achieve a distinct look when designing your website.
Fonts serve more than just aesthetic purposes – they can entirely change the way someone reads and interprets a text. Depending on the type of font, the same words can look playful, happy, sad, or serious. Just like tone of voice, typography can be used to help the reader better understand the tone that you’re trying to use in your writing. This is very important, as you want to make sure that there are no misinterpretations of what you’re trying to communicate with the reader. Just like in real life, you want your tone to match the conversation, and you want those who listen to understand and appreciate what it is that you’re saying.
Below we feature some excellent examples of websites that made good use of font combinations in order to achieve the best possible result. Take for example Weblounge, which combines Playfair Display and Museo Sans. The text is clean and clear, but also organic, featuring curly letters that make us feel comfortable and welcomed. This is exactly the message that Weblounge is trying to send, as their motto reads: “We’re on a mission to make you feel awesome in web and print.”
So here you have it – the top web font combinations and font pairing tools to help you design better looking, more comprehensive websites. The font pairing tools that we picked out are super user-friendly and they will help you find the right typography in seconds.
