Body text to go with Klavika
0

I need to typeset a series of training manuals (life skills coaching). The client uses Klavika as their corporate font. I'm not sure if I should just use Klavika for the body text - it might get a bit much – or look at something else.
The client would prefer to stay with a sans serif.
Any recommendations much appreciated.

Cheers

Klavika is a great font - but for long text avoid sans.
Maybe try Adelle as a match (and its Italic rules).

Adelle is a beauty, I'm a sucker for slabby italics.

There is not much text, most pages will have a large graph or diagram

Vista Slab is another slab serif -- which, being a bit sans-like, I can imagine the client being talked into even though they prefer sans -- and I think it captures some of the verticality of Klavika. Adelle looks like a nicer face in its own right though IMHO. I'd also consider TheSerif.
