New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am shortly going to be involved in assembling a very large volume of technical documentation to accompany a development proposal for a wind farm (very small by US standards but a big deal here in England). The amount of paper that this project will generate will be quite large: the Evironmental Impact Statement will in all probability run to at least 2,000 pages spread over multiple volumes.
Since every consultancy has its own 'house style' I am trying to avoid this application resembling a mish-mash of various documents from different authors by suggesting we all settle on some standard fonts and conventions. There are a few problems here though:
1. All consultants are using different versions of Windows;
2. We have not retained a graphic designer;
3. Our own 'house-style' is ghastly (10pt Arial for everything anyone?)
4. There is currently no budget for font purchase and dissemination across the team.
Using just the Windows typical fonts, does anyone have any views about what would be the best to use for a standard font?
I had thought about Georgia 10.5pt but I would like to hear from anyone with some experience on this sort of thing.
