Font go-togethers ...

link's picture

I have a project and I would like to get it right ... I need your help.
The logo uses Edwardian Script ITC
I used Adobe Garamond Pro for a headline and it looks (goes together) okay but I would like to know if there is a better go-together? Continuing with Edwardian Script ITC doesn't seem like a good idea (too fancy).

Also, for website copy, I need to select a default, would you use Verdana or ?

Your guidance will be appreciated.

I found this ... http://www.will-harris.com/typepairs.htm but Edwardian Script isn't on the list ...

Just wondering ... from your professional viewpoint is there no such thing as "font go-togethers?"

Logo is Edwardian Script ... I ended up using Georgia for a tagline.

There’s this amazing you rule can apply to font pairings: if you think the fonts look good together, use them together. Otherwise, don’t.

Hey James ... thanks for posting. That's a pretty wide open rule.
Sounds the the following quote would apply to type faces also ...

"Right and wrong do not exist in graphic design. There is only effective and non-effective communication."

In display settings, yes. When setting inline text one can always mix types in ways that distracts or detracts from the copy, which can be a problem, but otherwise just go for broke.
