What font style pairs well with geometric fonts and why?


Question

It seems to me that geometric fonts pair well with most serif fonts and some humanist sans-serifs since they are of considerable contrast, but I don't have a lot of experience with them.

Does anyone have any other suggestions or further insight?

I'm still learning and practicing with font combinations myself, but I go to inspiration sites for reference like typ.io.

The most common serif typefaces people chose to use with geometric fonts seemed to be rounder and have larger x-height, much like many geometric typefaces. Georgia was one example.

It would also probably depend on whether the geometric font is in all-caps or not, but it seems that in general, fonts with large x-heights would pair well.
