5 Fonts to try in your next design

Designers often spend a lot of time deciding which typefaces to pair up and most sites just give one-sentence examples that don’t offer a real preview of what the text will look like.

Here in this article we have taken a different approach by listing 5 different fonts used on 5 different live websites which will give you a better illustration on how the font can be used in the real world example.

Sofia Pro

The goal of this new type was to create a sans serif font which give an impression of both modernism, harmony and roundness. These nuances give Sofia a harmonious and sensible appearance for both texts and headlines.

Playfair Display

Playfair is a transitional design. From the time of enlightenment in the late 18th century, the broad nib quills were replaced by pointed steel pens.

Playfair Display is well suited for titling and headlines. It has an extra large x-height and short descenders. It can be set with no leading if space is tight, for instance in news headlines, or for stylistic effect in titles.

Tiempos Headline

Tiempos was initiated as an optimisation of Galaxie Copernicus for a Spanish newspaper redesign. Although it began as an offshoot of Galaxie Copernicus, Tiempos evolved far enough that it became its own standalone family.

It’s a good font to use as an accent element. It looks good when it’s bold too.
