Are you ready for some November Font Pairs?
It is the time of year that you may be putting together your Christmas cards or writing your family newsletter or even just finishing up an album and could use some inspiration on fonts! This month, I chose some bold, strong fonts with lighter follow up fonts. These are great for Titles and Headings and then the lighter fonts for the journaling. The contrast is so nice! I really hope you’ll like them. I’m so excited to play some more with them, as I also enjoy these different combinations!
Before I show you what I have though, I have to show you how much I love fonts and how seriously we take fonts, as graphic designers. This is a recent Saturday Night Live skit about fonts! If you haven’t seen this yet, you are in for a real treat! And if you have seen it, I’m pretty sure you’ll be excited to watch it again!
Okay, now back to our regularly scheduled program! Here are my ideas for this month’s font pairs!
First off, let’s look at our first set of font pairs being used on a Christmas card.
Second, let’s see our next pair on a Fall scrapbook layout.
I used Bebas Neue (which is currently a popular font choice) for the title and the classy, simple Montserrat font for the journaling. Also for this one, I used the technique to turn the font into a sticker to help it pop. If you are interested in how I did this, you can check out the tutorial I wrote for creating digital stickers. It works with fonts, just as it does with shapes.
Our third example is using it for a family newsletter.
As you can see, there are lots of different ways you can pair up fonts for your projects this holiday season! I hope these font pair ideas will inspire some fabulous ways for you to share your family story as you close out the year. And with these bold choices, I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
