Please share your thoughts on the pairing of the following as a serif (text type) and sans serif (display and caption type) combination for a small book of photo-graphic/typographic images:
1 Sirba and Soliel
2 Sirba and Myriad Pro
My initial interest is in the complementary relationship of Sirba and Myriad Pro in terms of ascender height, x-height, character width, friendliness and readability. However, Soliel "feels" like a hybrid of Myriad Pro and Avenir that may be a bit more complementary.
I appreciate any feedback based on your experiences with these typefaces.
PS: Attached sample is Myriad Pro and Avenir for Display and Constantia for Text to come as close as possible to the intended type pairing ... until I purchase Sirba and/or Soliel.
I am a designer/technical writer at a software company and am having a difficult time determining whether or not we can develop a documents package that includes Myriad Pro. The end user would receive this typeface a part of our software installation process; I just can't seem to figure out how to find accurate information on this subject. Someone at typophile should be able to tell me!:
What do I need to do to determine--WITH ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE--the legality of distributing this font?
Put another way: we are considering incorporating Myriad Pro into an installation that would affect 40,000 (yes, 40k) computers.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
My company is updating our website and like the rest of the world has been doing, I want to update our site to include the fonts that we use in our identity. Unfortunately, we use Myriad Pro in a wide range of styles and Myriad Web only has 5 fonts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myriad_%28typeface%29#Myriad_Web) that don't really cover our needs. So, I'm looking for a suggestion for a typeface that we can use that is similar to Myriad Pro but available as a web font. I'd really like something with light, black and condensed versions. Any suggestions?
The image is just a clip of some of the different styles we intend to use.
Thanks for any help!
