Pairing typefaces can be hard. Serifs with sans serifs? Extended with condensed? Similar typefaces side by side or complete opposites? You might have noticed we have a fair few typefaces. 32 typefaces to be exact (with more to come soon, so keep your eyes peeled). Whilst using one on its own is great, we’d argue that two working together in perfect harmony is even better!

Soft and sharp, what more do you want? This contrasting pair help bring out the best in each other, providing an edge to Pangram Sans Rounded’s friendly persona, whilst relaxing Editorial New’s bookish sincerity.

Even if this tall cut of Right Gothic doesn’t quite do it for you, there is definitely a style that will. With such a comprehensive family, Right Gothic can make itself comfortable in any and all contexts. Paired with Cirka, its lethal letterforms ground Right Gothic in a beautiful mixture of vertical and horizontal forms.
Hatton’s cosmopolitan context is left uncompromised in any pairing. When grounded by Radio Grotesk, however, its grace is truly emboldened, crafting a palpable contrast of friendly curvaceous forms with an unmatched sartorial elegance.
