Hi TF members,

I’m starting to work on new theme and here is the font option that I’m considering for the new design

Bree Serif + Droid Serif http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Bree+Serif

Previous my theme got rejected and I asked the wonderful TF for review and they told me typography is major issue asides from white space usage. So I decided to get feedback from you people on every step so that I can fine tune the design.

Now, please tell me if the font option is okay enough?

There is no right or wrong font, correct font choices & weighting depend on the design they take a part of. Not useful, but true :)

Any two serif fonts will hardly ever work well together. There are exceptions, off course.

^ That’s not true. But i guess always talking about design we need to work always with opinions and points of view. ;)

@sixtrot – Check this useful site http://www.typetester.org/ not all Google fonts there, but maybe it can help you. Also, read this page, http://www.thinkingwithtype.com/contents/letter/ go to Mixing typefaces chapter. The whole page is interesting and instructive.

Font choise is not the only important thing on typography. There are too many things which are important like line height, font color, font size, hierarchy etc.

Well, until someone comes out of a room to see what others has to offer you, you can never fine tune yourself.

Was doing that mistake for all these days.

Thanks for your reply guys :)

Damn, you’re right, somehow I swapped serifs for sans-serifs in my mind :\

Same old lessons, but useful:

Use Sans-serif (only, strictly) for inner text. And Serif (or Bold sans-serif) for Headings (subjective to the category of theme). But never go with only serif fonts throughout your design (don’t be weird). All the best, cheers :)
