What text typefaces would pair well with Modesto Lite Expanded, if it were used for headings?
Since I assume Modesto Text isn't texty enough for you, I guess Brothers would be even further off. So maybe: http://www.myfonts.com/search/hypatia/fonts/
What are you designing? We can't make useful suggestions unless we know more about the goals, audience, usage.
Indeed. I was being stupid, sorry.
I’m designing letterhead for personal and professional correspondence in which the author’s name in Modesto Lite Expanded is used as the header. I’m looking for a highly legible font for the body text that will compliment (or go well with) the header.
Beaufort® Extended Regular
Depending on the text size, and the means of printing, you might also consider the Light weight.
Thanks for the suggestion, Nick. Beaufort® Extended Regular or Medium would be a great alternative to Modesto Lite Expanded. Then I could use Beaufort® Regular as the text.
I would like a little more contrast, however.
I’d like a good sans serif text font to pair with Modesto Lite Expanded. I’ve tried Avenir and Neue Haas Grotesk, and I’ll try Hypatia, as suggested above. Further suggestions would be appreciated.
