Is there a way to know what fonts will work together? Building a palette is an intuitive process, but expanding a typographic duet to three, four, or even five voices can be daunting. Here are four tips for navigating the typographic ocean, all built around H&FJ's Highly Scientific First Principle of Combining Fonts: keep one thing consistent, and let one thing vary.I see that the combos look really good together, but I do not understand the criteria they use for their choices. It’s a way of seeing and combining patterns that I don’t grasp yet. I may never. Too bad I haven’t studied design. Nonetheless, an interesting presentation (and advert for their fonts).
