New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is my first post -- I've been learning from watching you smart folks for months, and now I'm in a situation where I could use a little of your expertise...
I am doing the titling for a documentary about a trip to a childrens orphanage in Africa and the director is in love with Papyrus. I can't stand the font (and from doing a papyrus thread search, I've gathered that most of you feel the same way).
Can anyone suggest some Papyrus alternatives? The font will be used for names of people and places, as well as short & long quotes.
I've been scouring my library and myfonts.com for something that I might be able sell to the director as a better alternative -- perhaps something elegant, friendly, and with a slightly "african" feel -- but I thought I would put the question to you, the ultimate type experts.
Thanks in advance for your time, and any input is very much appreciated.
