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)
There is a logo I'm working on and now I've been struggling to find a typeface that would nicely complement it. I thought that I could perform some crowdsourcing here on Typophile. I can't show the logo now but the attached image sums it up pretty well. It's geometric, modern, rounded, drawn on a grid but at the same time looks like made with a flat calligraphic brush.
I must say that so far only Museo looks like a good match but I'm slightly put off by the fact its free and ubiquitous. If nothing better is found I might fall back to it, however.
Thanks in advance!

Hello, fellow typophiles! :)
I will save you the long introduction and frivolous background details. Suffice it to say that I setting a brochure in TypeTogether's lovely Adelle and am looking for a good sans-serif companion to use in headings. Do you have any helpful suggestions? I'd prefer a typeface with some kind of lighter weights (like thin, extra-light, display, etc.) but that's not a deal-breaker. Really, I just need something that will act as a good complement to the graceful slab-serifs of Adelle. So far, I have these in consideration:
I'm building a website for an law firm. My client has no logo, then I used Trajan Pro to make the ID (my focus isnt logo at now).
My focus is that welcome text (Bem Vindo in portuguese) I can't find a font that looks great to do it with others element (logo, menu and that text above).
Somebody can give me ideas? Thanks.
PS: That Picture have the company's brands fotolia because I have not bought it. I'm just doing tests.
