We simply love this style of font, with its traditional elements is very elegant and perfect for a modern business. It was designed by Clau Eggers Sorense, and gives a feeling of beauty and simplicity. It is a serif font style and is best paired with a sans-serif font like Source Sans Pro. We always recommend that you pair a serif with a sans-serif, this creates contrast and a unique difference between the header font and the sub font.

2. Merriweather with Oswald

The versatility of Merriweather, makes it one of the top fonts for 2019. With its gentle serif, and easy to read design. It should be paired with a font style that has straight thin lines, like Oswald.

5. Elsie with Roboto

A beautiful font, with very gentle subtle swirls and interesting serifs. It’s the type of font you would expect to see on a woman’s perfume brand. Such an elegant font, should be paired with a sans-serif font, like Roboto, because it will not detract from the seed font.

6. Dancing Script with Josefin Sans

An adorable script font that flows with every letter written on the page. These types of fonts are becoming very popular, as they are stylish and elegant. When using a script font, it’s best to pair with a simple font style like Josefin Sans, with it’s very straight lines.
