25 Striking Google Font Combos
25 Striking Google Font Combos

One of the things I always struggled with when designing my blogs is font combinations. In an act of not wanting to deal with it, I would often just set a header to the bold version of the text font.

Snore.

I guess it made sense back in the days of web-safe fonts and their limitations but, with the existence of Google Fonts, there’s really no excuse to not gussy up your site’s content with a complementary font for your headings and text.

I’ve spent many a time running to Google to search for nice font combinations. Instead of leaving you to do multiple searches for the right font pairing, I wanted to round up some really cool font combinations you can use for your own site.

Font Combination Tips

This list is not exhaustive by any means but does provide some nice examples of how vastly different, and similar, fonts can be paired in an aesthetically pleasing way.

However, if you are interested in visiting Google Fonts and venturing into your own font-pairing adventure, here are some tricks to take with you:

Pair regular weight fonts with their narrow, condensed, or thin version.

Font combos 2, 22 and 25 in this post are perfect examples of how you can pair the same fonts but with vastly different looks. Somehow the narrow, condensed, and thin version offset the regular weights just enough so that there is a visually-pleasing difference.

This is great if you are looking to stick to a more traditional, clean look.

Pair serif headings with sans serif text.

Serifs were designed as more of a traditional and professional style of font whereas sans serifs are a bit more casual and relaxed.

Using a serif font for your heading draws the eye to the text as something informative and important. The sans serif font for text makes the content easier to read.

Most of these font combos are a combination of serif and sans serif fonts.

How to Install Google Fonts Onto Your Site

For a more detailed run-through on installing Google fonts on your site, check out my post How to Add Flair to Your Site With Google Fonts.

Otherwise, simply visit Google Fonts and add the font you want by clicking the “+” to the right of the font. It will add the font to a little box at the bottom labeled “# Family Selected”.

When you open that box, it will provide you with the code necessary to add the font to your site. You can add multiple fonts to this box and get all the codes in one fell swoop.
