You should only use two typefaces

“Use only two typefaces,” is a typographic principle that many professional designers adopt. It’s a rule with which I agree.

To be accurate, if you include the magazine title, and count the calligraphy as a typeface, there are three typefaces in this design.

But the large calligraphic type acts like an image. It’s a dominant, contrasting and dynamic element that draws the eye. The use of the primary color palette adds to the boldness of the design.
