Intro to Typography:
Merriweather and Verano Sans
Josefin and Verano Sans
I chose Merriweather with Verano Sans because I think the bold serifs od Merriweather pairs well with the humanist sans-serif Verano Sans. Bolded Josefin has a lot of personality and attention catching while Verano Sans is clean and easy to read.
My favorite serif font is Merriweather. I like wedged serifs more than bracketed serifs. It has a bit of a bold vibe because of the thick serifs.
My favorite sans-serif font is Verdana because it has a cross-barred capital I (eye) and differentiates from the lowercase l (ell). I love sans-serif fonts, but most sans-serif fonts don’t differentiate between the capital I and lowercase l.
Script fonts should be used for short phrases to catch attention. My chosen script font is Adine Kirnberg becaue the cursive is readable and fancy.
I see monospace a lot because I do a lot of coding. My favorite font to use when coding is Fira Code because it has a lot of ligatures.
My favorite display font is NICESOUR because it has color and strawberries.
I like to choose fonts that are clean and readable and have an approachable vibe to them.
