5 Little-Known Tools to Find Stunning Type Combos

5 Little-Known Tools to Find Stunning Type Combos | Font Lust & Graphic Desires | Scoop.it

Do you want to master successful graphic design? If so, you can't just focus on finding the right images and colors to use. In reality, one of the most important parts of effective design is ensuring that you find the right combination of fonts to use together. Using multiple fonts in one design is often essential, but it can also be challenging.


To marry typography in a design, you need to find fonts that work in harmony without looking too similar; fonts that offer contrast without fighting for the reader's eye. Most importantly, you want to find fonts that don't clash in some way that the other fonts look awkward. In order to find type combinations that pair well together, try out the useful tools below....

Using infographics for teaching allows the student to learn and understand better as they are just slides and using our own creations on how to present it. It is an effective way to teach students using infographics and it is simple and doesn't require as much time typing. I agree with what the author said about keeping it simple and easy and the students benefits from it. In the future I am sure most of the items will be controlled using technology.
