General rules for combining complementary fonts when you don't have a natural "eye" for it.


Hi everyone...I'm not at all lazy, but I'm sad to say that I don't have a natural eye for design. My best friend does and I've noticed over the years that she has helped me "develop" my eye. When I created a logo for my company (she was swamped at the time) and asked for her opinion, I thought she was going to reach through the phone and strangle me...I'd used what I now know is the much-typophile-hated font, Papyrus. Anyway, I digress...

Need alternative to Courier and complementary sans


I'm working on an annual report for school and have been using Sabon Next and Courier so far. I like the feel of Courier but it's set width is pretty wide. I was wondering if there was a typeface with a similar feel that doesn't set as wide. It doesn't have to be a monoface.

Also I'm curious if you guys have any suggestions for a third typeface (a sans-serif) that may complement the two.
