Rule of thumb: Don’t use more than 4 fonts total on a design. Most designs call for no more than 2 fonts.

Also, a good rule of thumb, mix and match font styles. Don’t use Century Gothic and Futura as your two fonts. They look similar, and they’re both sans-serif. Sometimes it’s good practice to use one sans-serif and one serif or slab… Or one decorative, one slab, and one sans-serif. I find its good to establish a font in three font types that work seamlessly together before beginning my design. Then pick 4 or less main colors, etc.

This is simply MY opinions, and part of MY design process/theory.. Take it or leave it.
