15 More Font Pairings to Try in Canva
One of the biggest issues I've seen in design is poor font pairing. And with so many bloggers creating their own images, I've been seeing it a lot more. The main reason for this is the lack of knowledge. And although some may not have a design background, I honestly feel that with the proper tools anyone can learn.
In November, I posted 10 font pairings you can try in Canva. I talked a little bit about font pairing so to reiterate I'll outline some key points.
FONT PAIRING IS REALLY QUITE SIMPLE
Include variety: If you want your design to be both visually pleasing and interesting, combine opposite styled fonts. Don't be afraid to go out of your comfort and pair up two different style typefaces. For example: combine a handwritten font with a serif font or a script font with thin uppercase text. Protip: don't combine two different script fonts together. Also try and avoid using script fonts for longer sentences and smaller font sizes, such as web addresses. It might become difficult to read.
Less is always more: Remember that it's called "pairing" for a reason. Keep it simple and don't over do it with too many different fonts. I would avoid using more than 3 different fonts in any given design. Some of the best designs are the simplest without too much busyness.
Don't overthink it: The trick is to experiment with different fonts and sizes to see what goes well together. To be quite honest, font pairing has a lot to do with personal preference so don't be afraid of pairing fonts together.
Canva is a great place for beginners to start because it doesn't try and drown you in tons of fonts. It's easy to use and it has some great pre-made graphics that you have full customization over.
