Berkeley/Californian complementing fonts
0

Can you give me some suggestions about fonts that would nicely complement Berkeley or Californian typefaces. May be sans or serif...

I've been looking at Optima, but I don't really like for the lack of true italic. Otherwise shapes could complement each other.

So I'm looking for other alternatives as well.

Thank you.

For a magazine. I will use Berkeley as default body font and I would like to comple,ent it with another type that would go well together.

Still not a lot of info to go on. What kind of magazine? What kind of audience? What kind of mood are you hoping to create?

Sorry not to tell anything more. I thought OK I've chosen Berkeley and need something with the same contrast that will be mixed with it without intrusion.

Anyway. I'm working on a magazine targeted at affluent readers. I didn't want to go with something usual. I've chosen Berkeley because of it's character and stroke modulation beauty. But I also need a different one to complement it. Either contrast or just sans serif with same overall contrast/colour.

I hope this helps. Oh. One more thing. Affluent readers yes, but content will not be about fashion and accessories. So I immediately put all Script/Swash/Modernist (like Bodoni) fonts out.

Then, I'm thinking of a geometric sans.

Cheers!

Oddly enough I paired it with Jos Buivenga's sophisticatingly beautiful Museo. Thanks Jos. Such an innovative font you've made. What's even more important? You've added Č芚Žž with it. :)

What do others think about pairing it with Museo? I used 300 and 500 weight...
