Five tools that will help you choose the perfect typefaces for your projects
If you dedicate yourself to graphic design (professionally or you are just beginning) you will know that typography is one of the most important elements to consider within a project.
In addition to choosing the right images and colors, it is also essential to find a good combination of fonts to use together. Today we are going to recommend five platforms that will help you find sources that will coexist harmoniously within a design.
Type Genius is a tool that was created specifically to help us find the perfect combination between fonts. Its operation is very simple: we simply have to select a typography to start and the web will be in charge of finding a good partner.
You can see how they work together and even offer you a direct link to the Google Fonts page of each type, so you can know a little more about each of them.
This tool would be a kind of Tinder typography. Using data from Google Fonts, Font Flame shows us pairs of fonts and we can say that we like them or hate them.
Currently, this platform shows combinations created by professional designers and some random ones. In addition, it gives us the option to see which pairs are the most famous within the web.
Here we find something different. Typ.io is a website where we can see professional designs and what typefaces they have chosen to create them. The good thing is that you can download them directly from here.
It is also interesting the labels that each project has, being able to see other projects created with certain typography, seeing more examples of how it has been used.
Palettab is an extension for Google Chrome that will help us find combinations of colors and typographies every time we open a new tab in the browser. Ideal if you are looking for inspiration.
Obviously, you have the option to click on the typography that appears and it will take you to Google Fonts to know more information about it.
Fonts in Use
Finally, Fonts in Use is a platform full of amazing designs divided by categories: activism, institutional, politics, advertising, products, etc. In this way we can know what fonts have been used in each of them.
Everyone can contribute and in the ‘Staff Picks’ we can find some of the most amazing examples.
With these five platforms we will no longer have to see how different fonts are fought within the same project. With a couple of clicks we will have access to thousands of combinations that look really good.
