Typefaces with clean lines and geometric shapes have been popular design tools for many years. One of the newer typefaces in this category is Poppins, which supports both the Devanagari and Latin writing systems. This makes it an ideal choice for international projects.

Each letterform is nearly monolinear, with optical corrections applied to stroke joints where necessary to maintain an even typographic color. The Devanagari base character height and the Latin ascender height are equal; the Latin capital letters are shorter than the Devanagari characters, and the Latin x-height is set rather high.

Poppins is geometric sans-serif with high x-height. The first thing to consider is the contrast meaning there is no good reason to combine Poppins with other similar sans-serif fonts. Best combination are probably serif fonts with high x-height.

Noto Serif has also high x-height and similar apertures which makes it a great Poppins pairing. Poppins can be used as body font or headings font. In the example below Poppins is used for the heading (title) and Noto Serif is used as body text.
