What font to partner with Briem Akademi ? (Now with Project Photos)
0

Hey everyone,

Anyone have some good examples or ideas of Briem Akademi paired with another font (text or display). I'm having a hard time getting some ideas going as it's a pretty unique font. I would really like to see some examples of this font in use if anyone knows of any.

Thanks,
Mike

I finally got my photos loaded into my computer, although you can't see much of the typography in these, I think you'll get the general theme I'm going for. I'll get some better photos as soon as I can get to my project. For now you can see the Briem Akademi used on the Front Cover ("Barn Dance") - it's altered to fit into that diamond shape. Univers is used on the Inside for the event information.

This project is based off a sophomore year assignment (family reunion invitation), and I've been working on it this semester (and last) for my senior portfolio. The "invitation" is basically a reminder and/or commemorative piece for all family members who will be attending our families annual barn dance :)

I would love to hear any comments on the type, design, etc... I would call it 90% done at this point, so hopefully I can wrap this project up soon.

Thanks again,
Mike

Mike, how much of Briem Akademi are you using, which weight, and in what way are you using it?

Right now it's just a header set in semibold and I have the tracking put pretty tight (-25).

I need a font I can use as body copy and smaller sub headings.

Thanks,
Mike

Well I ended up using Univers - any suggestions on that? I really liked the condensed versions, they have a very tall x-height as well and it looks very clean next to the Briem Akademi.

I'll get an image up of the printed piece either today or tomorrow (depending on when they unlock the building it's currently in :) )
