Ooooooh how I love font pairing! Choosing the right fonts for your project is so important. You’ll need to consider readability, size and weight. When pairing fonts you’ll want to make sure the fonts don’t contrast each other (like using two script font – no, no!).
I’ve searched through hundreds of fonts on Google fonts and found the very best font pairings. Enjoy!
