THE VALUE OF A MULTI-TYPEFACE DESIGN.
One of the women I look upto and whose work I really admire is Bethany Heck
, Head of Design at Medium and generally bomb.com designer. Bethany writes in this
insightful article about the value of using more than just a couple of typefaces in your designs.
Every Type 101 and font-pairing guide will tell you this— "Use fewer families in any given design, less is more." and as a rule of thumb, so will I. But Bethany presents a counter argument and speaks to the value of eclectic type systems, and how you can structure your projects in ways that will allow you to use more typefaces together effectively.
