Your opinions about this fonts combination

giulianovelli's picture


what do you think about this multiple fonts combination? (The site is still in designing phase and not complete).

The fonts used:

Jeanne Moderno Ultra by Steve Mehallo for the page heading

Jeanne Moderno Titling Italic by Steve Mehallo for the page subheading

FF Tisa Web Pro by FontFont for the headlines

Ratio by ps Type for the body text, social icons labels and timer labes (days, hours etc.)

LFT Etica Display Web by TypeTogether for the timer numbers.

All fonts are from the Typekit library.

I am not completely sure about the headlines / body text pair.

All opinions are really appreciated.

Too many.

Apart from the typefaces combination issue, have you looked at it in Firefox 3.6/Windows 7? In IE 8 it looks different, but not better …

There are ways to mitigate or eliminate the text rendering issues in the various browser and OS. I am still in an early stage of design so I am not looking at this problems yet.

Thanks anyway : )

I don't mind a lot of fonts, well hierarchied, and am impressed you have the hutzpah to use one of the very few "Unicase with small unicase" typefaces for your main style!

However, the main subhead is a bit off. It is distinguished by size, position and color, so a separate font/style is not necessary.
Also, the countdown numbers are odd as the only sans on the page, and don't seem "techy" enough if you are using them in an illustrative, denotative manner; they also don't sit very comfortably on the convex gradiented surface.
