Font Pairing Ideas to Elevate Your Designs

Pairing fonts is an art, much like pairing wine with food. It requires a keen eye, an understanding of design principles, and a touch of intuition. 

When working with a beautiful aesthetic font like Coastal Grey, a serif font, there are certain considerations to keep in mind to ensure harmony and balance in your designs. 

Here are three keys to look for when pairing serif fonts:

Contrast is King: One of the primary rules in font pairing is to create contrast. 

If Coastal Grey is your primary font with its elegant serifs, consider pairing it with a clean sans-serif as your secondary font. This contrast ensures that the design remains visually interesting and that the fonts don’t compete with each other. 

For instance, a bold Coastal Grey header paired with a sleek sans-serif subheader like Eleven Eleven can create a striking balance.

Maintain a Common Thread: While contrast is essential, it’s equally important to have a unifying element between the fonts. 

This could be in the form of similar x-heights, letter spacing, or even mood. For Coastal Grey, with its romantic and edgy vibe, pairing it with a second font that carries a touch of elegance or sophistication can create a harmonious design.

Limit the Font Palette: While it might be tempting to use multiple fonts, it’s a good practice to limit your design to two or three fonts. 

With Coastal Grey as your primary font, choose a secondary font for body text and, if necessary, an accent font for callouts or quotes. 

This ensures clarity, consistency, and avoids overwhelming the viewer.

The goal of font pairing is to enhance the content’s readability while adding a touch of design flair creating designs that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Inspiration: 

Coastal Grey serif can be very striking and edgy, but also very soft and delicate depending on how you utilize her. When you add Eleven Eleven, a modern geometric sans serif, your design takes on a level of high-end finesse with its beauty.  Eleven Eleven has unique details, such as slightly squared and round combinations and beautifully crafted diacritic marks.  And being that Eleven Eleven is a font family, you can alter the looks of your design by adding different weights to create hierarchy. This modern font pairing would be ideal for editorials, websites, and social media posts.

You can only lose something that you have, you cannot lose something you do not have.

Fonts used:

  • Coastal grey – extra light short serifs
  • Editor’s Note hairline italic (Jen Wagner)
  • Cardo regular (Google/Adobe free font)

Inspiration:

Coastal Grey pairs perfectly with a geometric sans serif, which is probably my most favorite as you see in this post. I love incorporating Editor’s Note as it brings in beauty and sophistication to the design.  Editor’s Note is a 16-font family and Cardo is a family of 3 weights. No matter how you design your concepts, you can already understand how this can transform your creations with the use of each font. Use them both or just one, and grab the attention of the viewer with pure elegance.

Every thought you have is a message you send to the universe.
