Malaga and other options
0

Has anyone worked with [[http://www.emigre.com/EF.php?fid=207|Malaga]]? I am considering using it as body copy and display type in a magazine design.

Also looking for a sans (needs to be very versatile) and another display face that would work well together. I was thinking of [[http://www.fontshop.com/search/?q=ff+bau&site=d&btnG=Go|FF Bau]] for the sans (not totally sold on this yet, maybe Verlag?) and maybe [[http://www.joshuadarden.com/shop/omnes.php|Omnes]] as a secondary display for upfront sections (although not really looking for a rounded sans, yet I LOVE this one).

The magazine is a lifestyle/consumer stand alone issue for condo/loft owners. I would like it to be hip, young, bold and graphic yet still very elegant and high-end... but friendly, approachable. Kinda like [[http://www.metropolismag.com/cda/|Metropolis]] meets [[http://www.marthastewart.com/blueprint|Blueprint]].

Would love to hear some suggestions.

As far as i can evaluate from screen Vista Sans is the sans equivalent to Malaga. If you need a sans with a lot of similarities that can work in the same line of text …

Thanks, I love Vista sans, I've used it in a few projects. I am looking for something with more contrast to Malaga (if I use it). Maybe [[http://www.processtypefoundry.com/typefaces/seravek/index.html|Seravek]]?

I think I've solved my own problem, going to run with the entire Leitura type system (as suggested from a friend).
