Using multiple fonts in any design is an excellent way to create interest as well as to draw a viewer’s eye to important content. Choosing the right mixture of fonts, though, can be difficult. Without some knowledge as to how to fit the different typefaces or font styles together, a design could become quite overwhelming and confusing.

Of course, knowing what fonts to use together also requires a bit of intuition. If you don’t quite have the eye, simply start browsing through typographical posters, websites, and other graphic designs that excellently utilize different fonts. You will eventually be able to tell what fonts simply draw the eye more than others in a design and which ones mesh well together. When this intuition is combined with some basic tricks for mixing and matching fonts, you will become quite the expert in choosing beautiful blends of fonts, no matter the design.

Below are the basic tips you need to know before jumping into using mixed fonts in graphic or web design, along with some excellent examples of good practice. So take some time to read through the following rules, do some research to see more mixed typography in use, and then you should be ready to try some multiple font designs on your own.

Beware of Font Overkill

Less is always more in design, and this rule is no exception when it comes to mixing fonts. Too many different fonts – or even simply too many font styles and colors – and you’ll not emphasize anything. Viewers won’t know where to look first when they see a page layout. Their eyes will jump from one to the other for a second or two, and the majority will give up trying to decipher where to begin reading than struggle through the confusing text. Keep in mind that the point of using multiple fonts is to increase the aesthetics of a design, create hierarchy and order in content, and to highlight important information.
