I did not really have any idea's to start with since I was just doing my name as the logo. I wanted to explore typography as much as I could so I thought I would pick two fonts that work well together and put them next to each other in as many combinations as possible and see if anything pops out. I chose Myriad Pro and Minion Pro, they offer a full set of weights and Minion Pro Italic has some cool swatches.
I'm still working on putting more combinations together. I'll post more as I do
