TypoTip: Just two or three types

Just mix two or three fonttypes

If you choose your font carefully, you don’t have to add another font. My favorite these days is Myriad, coz it hat so many different types.


If you think it is necessary, just mix two or at a max three different fonts. Personally I think three fonts are borderline.

A great mixing can be done with sans serif and serif fonts.

Sorry my examble is all in German, but I think you can get the idea.

“kombine two or three fonttypes and play with their variations”


Why not more fonts?

Seriously? It doesn’t look well and yeah it is not that legible!

Just have a look at this entire German example again. What do you think, when you see such an example? What impression do you get?

Leave me a comment with your thoughts.
