fonts! i love fonts!
and i used to be really intimidated by them and it took me so long to figure out what looked good with what until i learned what a serif and a sans serif are...and then the game changed for me. you can put practically any serif and sans serif together and have an instant beauty. i think my favorite combination is a contemporary sans serif with a really whimsical and frilly font - there is something about that juxtaposition that is really captivating to the eye.
so take a look at that little gem of a font guide above and take it to heart. memorize the different types and how to pair them and then remember the exception to the rules (because everyone loves a little rebellion, right?)
pairing an uppercase and a lowercase of the same type can work beautifully! and using a thin and thick font of the same type can be oh so chic.
happy font pairing!
