Which typeface goes well with Aperçu?


Hi typophiles, I could use some help decided on a great typeface combination.

I am a junior designer and am working on a book related to Dutch design. I am currently looking at different options for the typefaces I will use. I would really like to use Aperçu for the headlines, title, chapter openers etc, but need still need to decide on what to use for the body text. I thought it would be nice to use a dutch designed typeface, as it relates to the content, and so far I have been looking at Swift, DTL Documenta and Arnhem. Do you guys think these could fit with Aperçu at all? If not, do you have any other suggestions, it could be sans serif as well, although I was leaning more towards using a serif. (it doesn't have to be a dutch typeface, but it would be nice)

Recommendation to pair with Galaxie Polaris?


Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a type family to pair with Galaxie Polaris, for web use. We'll be using this one in the body copy throughout the site. The client is a university, in case that adds any desired context.

Galaxie Copernicus is presently on the table, but I'm not sure of what else. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Sans serif combination for Futura PL


Hi. I'm working on a webdesign for dj school.

We are going to use FUTURA PL as the main font for headers, titles and menu. The client doesn't want to use a serif as a complement for body text.

Which sans-serif font do you recommend to use for body text that would look good in combination with FUTURA PL?

I'm trying to avoid using Helvetica as the combination.

Here is a draft with FUTURA and Helvetica

Thank you!

Webfont: a legible, good quality grotesk/serif combination. Choices and alternatives


Hi everybody,
looking for a font combination for a web editorial project I'm working on (a magazine focused mainly on stories and opinion but also with short news, let's say in a 70/30% proportion). A sidenote: I'm not the graphic designer, guess I'm the "creator".
Since I spend most of my days reading, print and on screen, I really like looking at good typograpghy and even if I'm waaaaay far from being an expert, I'd like to choose a bunch of typefaces myself and then discuss with the graphic designer.
Anyway, I'd like to use a sans for titles/headlines and a serif for long text. The layout is clean, with colors and composition vaguely inspired to the 60-70s italian and european magazines, but It looks like a website, so It's not "old" or "vintage".

What do you think about the following 3 font combination

This is a test page for fonts that I want to use to create a web design portfolio.
I wanted to use something modern, not too "futuristic" and with a bit of hip to it.
I have doubts about the Ubuntu font for the nav menu. any replacement suggestions would be welcome.

Font that suggests "book" but for logotype


I'm trying to settle on fonts for a logotype that is a compound word (want to distinguish
the 2 parts of the word).

Leaning towards a serif/sans mix but trick is finding a combo that has very similar x-height and shape, and lasting power for a logo.

There are 2 sets of double "Os." This is where I'm stuck, to go with very round or very not round.
Also a lowercase "g" which is probably my favorite letter in double storey form.

Overall look should be friendly, approachable.

I'm leaning towards Minion combined with either Syntax, Meta, Profile or Whitney (the last of which
I don't own and will have to buy).

Any opinions?


Perfect partner for Franklin Gothic?



Currently doing some editorial design work and selecting two typefaces, a serif and sans, for the project.

I've settled on Franklin Gothic for the first type family due to legibility, style and weight variations, but for extra flavour and for body copy in feature articles, I'm looking for a serif that matches the same kind of x-height and will harmonise nicely. I thought of Caslon but think perhaps the x-height is too small; Palatino compares in scale however I'm not too sure about the combination of style - any thoughts on these or any serifs that may play happily with Franklin?


Combining Gothic and Script


I'm working out a logotype for an individual who is committed to using a script font, but who's product directly references the middle ages. a starting point, I'm wondering if anyone can suggest an example of a font that has effectively integrated Blackletter/Medieval/Gothic sensibilities into a fairly clear script font like "English Script."
