Top 7 UI font combinations

ui font combinations

Combining fonts can be, without any doubt, one of the most difficult things you’ll ever have to do as a creative person. To simply guess some appropriate UI font combinations is unlikely possible. It’s a known fact that not every font goes hand in hand with any other font you find. And, as you might’ve been expecting, you’ll have to take into account lots of different aspects when mixing & matching typefaces.

We’re talking serif and sans serif fonts, stressed letters, body height, glyph width, contrast, apertures, counters. All these elements we previously mentioned in all those typographic principles are aspects that can and will influence how well a font matches one another.

Nowadays, trends have moved our attention towards more and more minimalist fonts, predominantly lacking serifs. Stable, consistent and optimized for all mediums, they might differ from those fonts that are used for branding. But we’ve got good news! We found 7 font combinations that will definitely improve the look of the user interface you are working.

Playfair Display – Source Sans Pro
