Enter for a Font Registry – Tell Us Why You’re a Great Pair

It’s wedding month at FontShop and love is in the air! We’re hosting not just one, but two contests this month as part of our June series.

Regular readers of the FontShop blog know that each Wednesday our type expert David Sudweeks highlights Great Pairs – typefaces that, while often dissimilar, complement each other to create something beautiful. In the spirit of that series, we want to hear from couples out there – what makes you a great pair? Do your angles fit well with her curves? Does your no-nonsense presence work perfectly with his playful demeanor? Do you stick together through thick and thin, bold and italic?

One lucky duo will win $100 credit at FontShop and David’s assistance, if desired, filling your “font registry.”

Leave your story in the comments section of this post by Sunday, June 16. We’ll pick our three favorites and open it up to voting on the blog the week of June 17.

Pinterested: Great Pairs!

As announced earlier this week, FontShop’s Wedding Month starts next month! Just over a week away, you can prepare by getting acquainted with our Great Pairs pinboard. Every Wednesday, our type expert David Sudweeks pairs two typefaces available on FontShop; you can easily view and find all past pairs on Pinterest!

As our Type Trends series comes to a close, we want to remind you that you can always take a quick peek at our Type Trends pinboard to refresh your memory about what’s currently trending. Even though our font expert, David, won’t be going in-depth about the current trends anymore, that doesn’t mean polychromatic type, stenciling, or handmade signage is going out of style anytime soon!

We also have our Great Pairs series pinned so you can visualize some of the type pairings that David has put together for the past couple months. Check out our Great Pairs pinboard for classic pairings like Benton Sans and Benton Modern or unsettling couplings such as Maxime and FF Legato.

Stay tuned for David’s next series, Using Type!
