Many font families and styles exist, such as serif fonts, classic typefaces, or decorative fonts.
It is therefore not surprising to feel lost or worse, to make bad choices. As such, in this article, we will be exploring 7 examples of design typographies. An accompanying font is suggested for each example.
Oswald is a rather well-known serif font since it is inspired by Trade Gothicn which is none other than the YouTube logo font.

Therefore, Oswald is particularly suitable for creating logos for a website. This design typography goes perfectly with the Open Sans font.
