I'm starting work on a small annual report for a nonprofit focused on education in North America. For the past few years, I've used the fantastic [[http://www.processtypefoundry.com/typefaces/locator/index.html | Locator]] and Locator Display by Process. This year, I'd like to use the Display face again but invest in a nice serifed font for text. It would be great if the new font will belong to a larger family of typefaces, but it's not necessary. The primary goal is to have a text face that will be friendly and super legible but will also share some of the modern quirks of Locator in a very gentle way. It should not call overt attention to itself and it should be a bit of a workhorse.
I've somewhat ruled out Meta Serif but I'm considering [[http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/downloads/itc/itc_mendoza_roman_complete_vp/ | Mendoza ]] and [[http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/ludwiguebele/mokka/ | Mokka]] as these are smartly crafted transitional faces. There's also [[http://typography.com/fonts/font_overview.php?productLineID=100032 | Chronicle]], which is lovely.
Any suggestions would be welcome! Thanks, in advance.
