20 of the best font families to supercharge your typography

The best font families are versatile resources for designers. It can be hard to choose just the right typography for a project: do you go for something unique to give the piece character, or is it better to opt for something neutral that doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the design?

In order to be consistent within a project without becoming repetitive, it can help if a typeface offers a large font family that cover different styles, weights and widths. The notion of an extended, organised type family (or 'superfamily' if it contains different classifications, such as a serif and a sans serif) is a relatively new concept, and has only been around as we know it today for just over a century.
