New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm currently leading a redesign of the Glasgow Guardian. We're a student paper with a low budget and 100% run by volunteers.
Two competent amateurs + Adobe CS4 + the next two months = a newspaper.
Naturally, we want it to look awesome. I'm a photographer that's only just learning the first things about typography, but man, guys, that Caslon italic ampersand! The Doves Bible! Typography is clearly amazing.
Anyway: so far I'm thinking of using solely the "Utopia" typeface family, as it has a high x-height and nice "caption" weights that would make readable 10pt body text. It also has a good few display weights, including a Black Headline weight that could work well for... well, headlines.
Thoughts? Would be very much up for something more daring.
