I'm working on a website and wondering at what point I'm using too many fonts and need to cut back. Right now, I have a handwritten font (HF1) that is being used for the site name, a quite different handwritten font (HF2) for the page title, and a serif font (SF1) that is being used for the body text.
Currently I'm looking at the headings, and I really don't like the way Georgia (SF1) looks when bold: The characters look imbalanced and too heavy when large and bold. I'm torn between...
- Making them not bold, distinguishing them from body text another way.
- Making them a different serif font (probably Adobe's Jenson Pro) and bolding them.
Jenson Pro is a nice looking font, but I'm wondering if I have too much going on font-wise on the page right now. More generally, how much can one hope to get away with typographically?
