1 Science: Exo & Web Serveroff

This three-font combination comprised of Exo for the title text and Web Serveroff for the subtitle and body copy is ideal for any science-related content.

As a display font that can also be used at smaller sizes but in this case is used entirely in upper case, Exo has a futuristic feel to it, while Web Serveroff is a cool, narrow sans serif font that adds to the overall techy feel of this combination of imagery and text.

2 Resume: Oswald & Lato

Resume infographic using fonts Oswald & Lato.

As a strong and bold sans serif font, Oswald works well in a variety of design projects, including resumes. It not only communicates confidence, professionalism and stability, it also combines well with a variety of other fonts for body copy.

In this case, a second sans serif font, Lato, was used for smaller text for its readability and rounder, friendlier appearance to counterbalance Oswald.

3 Design: Montserrat & Lato

Design infographic with a photo of someone working on a computer using fonts Montserrat & Lato.

Montserrat, a vintage font reminiscent of urban typography of the first half of the 1900s, is here used in combination with the sans serif font Lato. Very legible at smaller sizes as well, Montserrat is also used for the subtitle in this visual piece.

As a geometric font comprised of simple shapes, Montserrat fits well with a versatile font like Lato, which combines both seriousness and warmth in its personality. Both are clean and sleek, which always works well with any design-related project.

4 Technology: Rokkitt & Hattori Hanzo

Technology infographic with a photo of an Apple product using fonts Rokkitt and Hattori Hanzo.

Rokkitt, a display font which is ideal for headlines and title text, is here combined with Hattori Hanzo, which is a clean and modern-looking font that works especially well for short pieces of text in charts and infographics.

The use of lots of white space and a muted color combination also help make this a harmonious and effective design.

5 Health: Oswald & Helvetica

Health infographic with a photo of a woman running using fonts Oswald and Helvetica.

Oswald is once again used here, but in bold and italic. As a very clean and legible typeface, Oswald works especially well in titles and headers, as seen here; slightly slanted to the right, it also adds a sense of motion and dynamism to this piece focused on healthy living and exercise.

For the sake of clarity and legibility, the timeless and very popular Helvetica font is used for both the subtitle and body copy.

6 Medicine: Helvetica & Georgia

Medicine infographic with photo of a stethoscope using fonts Helvetica and Georgia.

Helvetica is once again used here for the title, but in bold. As a clean, sans serif font, it reflects the stability and professionalism of the message it is communicating.

Georgia, a very legible serif font with ample letter spacing, was used for the subtitle and body text. Both of these are very common fonts that can be used in a variety of design projects, not just those that are medicine-related.

7 Travel: Pacifico & Junction

Inspired by the American surf culture of the 1950s, Pacifico is a fun and creative handwriting font that can be used to add a casual, lively feel to your project.

Here, it is combined with Junction, a font that is said to offer the best of both serif and sans serif fonts by combining the hand-drawn, humanist qualities of serifs with the clean and minimalist look of sans serifs.

8 Charity/Nonprofit: Cabin Sketch & Source Sans Pro

Another humanist sans font, Cabin Sketch has the texture of a kid's doodle--while still very legible--that is both playful and creative.

It is combined here with Source Sans Pro, which is very readable at various sizes and resolutions and combines very well with Cabin Sketch due to the similar dimensions and letter shapes.

As in the rest of the examples showcased here, the personality of the fonts reinforces and is in sync with the brand, its main message and tone.

9 Marketing: Trebuchet MS & Fjord

Marketing infographic with charts and icons using fonts Trebuchet MS and Fjord.

Trebuchet is a common font that is useful for a variety of projects due to its open forms, round features and large x height, all of which promote readability.

Here, it is harmoniously combined with Fjord, which is ideal for large blocks of text at small sizes, such as in this case. As indicated in our non-designer's guide to pairing fonts, it's recommended to combine a serif font with a sans serif to heighten contrast.

10 Business: Trocchi & Source Sans Pro

Business infographic showcasing an annual report using fonts Trocchi and Source Sans Pro.

A casual slab serif inspired by earlier typefaces, Trocchi is here combined with the clean Source Sans Pro both in the subtitle and body copy. A bright and vivid cyan, along with variations of gray, are here used to achieve a general look of professionalism and create visual interest at the same time.

11 Finance: Open Sans Condensed & Verdana

Finance infographic showcasing monthly profits using fonts Open Sans Condensed and Verdana.

Open Sans Condensed is a highly legible and neutral yet friendly font that is characterized by an upright structure and open forms. Its understated elegance is a nice fit for a finance or corporate project striving to communicate excellence and professionalism.

It's combined here with Verdana, which is ideal for smaller text due to its generous spacing and width.

As in the previous example, bright, vivid colors are combined with more neutral, subdued tones to simultaneously attract the reader's eye while maintaining a sense of balance and reliability.

12 Education: Archistico & ST Marie

Education infographic with a photo of colored pencils using fonts Archistico and ST Marie.

In this example, a good amount of contrast is achieved through the use of Archistico and St. Marie. While Archistico is a playful display font that looks like it was hand-drawn, St. Marie is narrower and more formal. They combine perfectly in this example project with an educational theme.

When choosing images for your project, make sure to select those that give you enough space to easily allow you to overlay text, such as in the example above.

Also, when choosing a color combination, you can use the same hues found in your image so as to create a sense of visual harmony and cohesiveness.

13 Environment: Yellowtail & Amaranth

Environment infographic with a photo of a plant with dew drops using fonts Yellowtail and Amaranth.

Yellowtail is unique in that it combines non-connecting letters with connecting ones, which gives it a good amount of legibility despite being a script font.

Here, it's combined with Amaranth, a friendly font with distinctive curves. Note how this high-contrast combination with a lot of personality works well with this environment-related theme.

14 Food: Dancing Script & Josefin Sans

If you're looking for a lively and spontaneous look, Dancing Script will do the trick. Informal and friendly, with letters that slightly change size from one to the next, this font is well-suited for a casual and entertaining subject such as food and cuisine.

Here, it's combined with a much more legible and elegant font in the sub-header and body copy, Josefin Sans.

15 Sports: Trump Town Pro & Titillium

Sports infographic with a photo of a football playing using fonts Trump Town Pro and Titillium.

A serif font with a bold and eye-catching personality, Trump Town Pro is well-suited for sports-related topics, such as this one. It can be easily combined with a more neutral and readable font such as Titillium to balance it out.

Like in the previous examples, the colors used here were extracted from the image to create visual harmony.

    3. Christina Bronsing-Lazalde says:

      I’m trying to recreate the top header font “inspiring” before font combinations. It says that it’s Lora italicized, but that’s not looking anything like this. Any idea what font that actually is for the word “inspiring”? Thanks
