New “Font Combination” article at Smashing Magazine

Smashing Magazine just published my article “Best Practices of Combining Typefaces“. The article expands on some of the principles I’ve covered in other articles here at BonFX, but has a lot of large, original illustrations and uses some of the most popular fonts in design today. Stop by and take a look!

    That’s a really solid article, Douglas, with great (and in one case, surprising) examples. Souvenir and Futura Bold–who’da thunk?

    “Souvenir and Futura Bold are unlikely but happy partners”

    Indeed. Souvenir is one of those faces that has so much personality of its own, that people like me (whose typographic sensibilities may be better than the average bear, but well short of your own) would find it hard to pair harmoniously with another. I think I need to buy The Big Book of Font Combinations!
