    lately i quite like combining big sized script fonts(nearly any thicker script font will do) for main information with smaller sized sans font(nexa,din,tungsten...) in different styles for details. Dont have any rule in particular, but usually i start with one "main" font and then i try to fit in other fonts.

    I work in retail marketing, so lately I've been using Thirsty Script for headlines paired with the very clean (and classic) Proxima Nova for body copy. I sometimes accent subheads with Museo Serif if I am creating something for the web.

    On a similar subject, does anybody know of good blogs or websites that list font combinations similar to what google is now doing with their web fonts?
