New to the forums here, been browsing and using this site for years but never posted. I'm after some advice for what fonts to use for my conference poster.
OK I'm presenting an A0 poster at an antarctic research conference and am getting tired of my usual Caslon/Helvetica-Neue combo and wanted to change things up a bit.
Obviously its a little difficult to describe whet I have in mind. Its a science poster, thinking cooler colors, lots of white as it will have a few hairline diagrams on it.
I've done a few years of design but I'm a science major and there is a prescription for poster making in the science realm so its quit easy to make some thing a little different by simply going outside their prescribed parameters ("everything must be sans-serif", "force justify paragraphs", "do what we tell you" etc...)
So I'm looking at trying to mix things up. What can everyone/anyone recommended? I don't mind buying a few fonts at the right price. I'm [i]liking[/i] the "Economist" for my body text and I really wanted to use "Futura" for headings and diagram labels but its just not fitting right for the main heading at the moment :S
Suggestions please :)
