Combining typefaces

  • Designers are often encouraged to limit the number of typefaces they use and given generic lists of type combinations in place of more in-depth discussion around type combinations and multi typeface systems. Bethany Heck wants to improve the way typographers talk to each other about how we combine typefaces and remove the negative stigma attached to typefaces that use a large number of font families. Join us for a fun conversation about combining fonts and faces with Bethany.Bethany Heck is the Executive Design Director for Platform Design at Vox Media and the creator of the Eephus League brand of baseball scorebooks. She strives to create powerful visual experiences with strong typographic elements regardless of medium, and has worked with the likes of Microsoft, IBM, EA Sports, ESPN and more, and her work has appeared in New York Magazine, the New Yorker, Wired, Smashing Magazine, Print and several other international publications and art exhibitions.
