I'd like to combine slab fonts with sans-serif, like FORAL PRO with DOBRA
Awesome thread, super helpful. Thanks.
Helvetica neue and Neue haas grotesk // Glypha, Seriffa, Belizio
Specially for having a modern mag with a nice helvetic heading of bold 75 with any of the italian like serifs on the text body at the roman/light version with size 9-10 leading of 3pt
I like Rosarian with Core Circus
The Fonts In Use website is a fantastic resource for font combinations...could spend all day on that website.
I use Sabon Next a lot, depending if I need compressed sans (that usually is the case for big tables):
- Not need compressed sans: Ideal Sans
- I need compressed&uncompressed: Scala Sans (Agilita work for this too).
I often combine script and serif. Trajan font is likely combine with any script font.
Thanks for sharing the ebook, its very useful..
I really like to use Georgia maybe in italics with a nice Futura Bold display. Look's great in black and white.
Awesome tips. Very useful!
Lyon and Alright Sans work really well together.
and this book is very helpfull for that http://explorationsintypography.com/
For inspiration, you might check out images of vintage posters, show-cards and newsprint -- especially from the 1880s up through the 1920s. I'm a sucker for old-fashioned type, but you can find some pretty interesting (and pretty wild) ideas of type combinations -- it's surprising what they would throw together sometimes.
(Though I have been known to screw with people and pair Times New Roman with Arial -- but just as a joke.)
In the latest project, I used Concord with combination of Dinpro (Caps).
My favorite font at this time is geared pro.
