    Best practices mixing different fonts

    Isn't it a role that you should not mix too many fonts for a design based off of the page layout? For example a business card should have no more than 2 fonts but a 8.5x11 flyer design could have up to 4 b/c of size difference? Thoughts?

    Simple / General rule of thumb - 2 should be enough, no more than 3. Period.
    Don't use two similar typefaces (ie. Gotham + Helvetca)

    There are always exceptions to the rule/s...ransom notes :P
