10 Hand Drawn Font Pairings

Finding the perfect font pairings on a project can take some time.  Sometimes it takes a lot of time to find just the right one. I’ve been keeping track of some of the font pairings I’ve used on different projects and wanted to start sharing some of them with you.

I’m totally loving these handwritten fonts.  I love that they have a calligraphy aspect to them and don’t look like doodles out of my junior high notebook (not that it takes much effort to beat that). I love the clean edges! These fonts are great to mix in with watercolor and foil design elements to make a project look hand drawn but oh so clean and cute.

Quite a few of the fonts came in the Typographer’s Toolbox by Nicky Laatz.  I didn’t realize that until I’d already made the graphic up and started making the links in the post.  But I highly recommend the kit!   I also used her Mammoth Watercolor Kit for the watercolor overlays on the fonts. I may have a bit of a design crush.

One of the best parts of my job is getting to know amazing designers and bloggers.  I met Laura over 10 years ago at BYU-Idaho.  We lived in the same apartment complex and bonded over haggis.  True stuff.  We’ll get her officially in the about section soon!
