When it comes to web designing which fonts and font combinations you are using plays a major role, in fact, fonts are the most important element in a design.

That’s why you will see google fonts are being used everywhere on the web starting from websites to web apps even page builders like Elementor use google fonts as their main font library.
So the question comes what google font combination should we use so in this article, I’ll show you some of the best Google font pairings according to me you can use to make your design even better.
How to choose a good font pairing
There are over 950+ fonts in the google fonts library and you can come up with all sorts of font combinations but there are some rules of thumbs you can follow to make this process easier for you.
Contrasting fonts combination between title and body: This is the most important point to keep in mind, you should have good contrast between your title and body font.
Ideally, your title should be large, bold and impactful and the body text should be light, this creates a great contrast that is pleasing to the eyes and easy to read.
Mix typefaces: Extending the topic of contrast you can use mix typefaces like serif and sans serif to create a nice balance in your page. You can use serif fonts for heading and sans serif fonts for body text or visa versa.
Don’t count out single font: This point may contradict with the previous point but you can use just one font for your entire website just like I’m doing on this site. If you have a simple blog you can use just one font with varying font weights to create the contrast.
Enough talking let’s get right into the font combinations.
To save you time I have listed the most commonly used google fonts pairings but I’ve just scratched the surface of the iceberg here. If you follow the pattern in the list above you can come with your own font combinations.
