Roemisch - similar type family suggestions ?
0

… any suggestions for “small solution” typeface to compliment Roemisch … thinking of using Roemisch for an ID, but don’t want to reuse it across the board, so as to give more power to the “g” in the main wordmark

Try Cisalpin, a new face from Linotype that is also Cartographic in its origin.

any experience with Melior….good/bad qualities in print at small sizes ?…it looks great and matches Roemisch well i think, but i don’t own it yet, so any shared experience with it would be great

I’ve used Melior at text sizes (9-12pt) and it performs beautifully.

thx — that is a beautiful face…was thinking of staying serif, but should consider sans as well perhaps

Serif and Sans together can lead to a very pleasing combination.

What would you be looking for if you wanted a second serif face?

mainly just good support of Roemisch, but good hinting / legitibility at 8-9pt would be necessary

Yeah, but support it how? I mean, *any* font could support it somehow, depending on the usages

as a “tag” under the wordmark, and in supporting print collateral / ID system pieces at sometimes small sizes….i want to marry well with the mark, but be different enough to let the mark stand out

Maybe a Scotch serif like Miller or Modern Extended.

I have never used this font but it looks nice and elegant, seeing as it is a glyphic font i would stick with a glyphic partner font; Zapf Humanist is nice, keep it thin in weight though otherwise it becomes a heavy overbearing type font. Another you may like to try is Litalitha.
