Beautiful Font Combinations

Following on from our 6 Web Design Trends for 2013 article, we take a look at one of the trends of the year, typography.

One of the most crucial parts for any design project, be it for web or for print, is choosing the right mix of fonts. A good combination of typefaces can really enhance the design, equally, choosing a bad mix can be disastrous! Below are some examples of font combinations that we think work perfectly.

Timberland

The Timerland website uses a combination of a big, bold and chunky serif font called Lubalin, complimented by an equally bold Trade Gothic.
