Open source typeface pairings
January 25, 2018
I always love finding new typeface pairings to use across my personal and client projects, but I find many suggested pairings come with a hefty price tag (rightly so - premium typefaces are normally always worth their cost).
So, I’ve curated this personal list of 5 exceptionally beautiful typeface pairings that will cost you absolutely
nothing. Open source FTW. ET-Book & Gill Sans
ET Book, Gill Sans
ET-Book & Gill Sans are based off the font pairings of my personal Jekyll theme:
ET-Jekyll Theme. Playfair Display & Roboto
Playfair Display, Roboto
Playfair Display & Roboto I find work really well for microblogs or short essay format posts.
Karma & Open Sans
Karma, Open Sans
Karma & Open Sans give readers a little more breathing room between characters. Good choice if trying to keep accessibility in mind.
Libre Baskerville & Oswald
Libre Baskerville, Oswald
Libre Baskerville & Oswald oozes character and takes inspiration from a more print-based medium.
Fanwood & League Spartan
Fanwood, League Spartan
Fanwood & League Spartan paired together allow the main content to be easily readable, while the headers instantly grab the user's attention.
