Good font combinations

Good font combinations

Today I was introduced to FontFlavor by Julian Flynn of FAQFox fame.
I loved the site, simply because I love good fonts on websites.
My problem is that I can’t pick them myself. Just not my forte.

Nikka Ann goes into great depth on the fonts and combinations. I found to my dismay that the fonts are not all free or easily usable on the web.

I hit the road and dug up some resources to be used on websites.

introduced as “HAND-PICKED TALES from ÆSOP’S FABLES with HAND-PICKED TYPE from GOOGLE FONTS”
My favorite of the bunch. These are beautiful font pairings illustrated really nicely.

Fontpair
Font Pair helps designers pair Google Fonts together.
Hoping you know what serif and sans serif means, Font Pair groups its pairings in categories of header font/body font.
If you don’t, don’t deapair! Here is an explanation of serif / sans serif.
On fontpair, the category “serif/sans serif” then means all pairs with a serif header font and a sans serif body.

It is actually quite easy to find what you need this way.

With these resources and all the free fonts you could want at your request, even the typographically challenged can get a good looking font combination for their website.
