Humanist/sans suggestions please


Hello Typophile,

I am looking for a little help. I have just started in a new job leading the interface design for a digital publishers. They have asked me to take a look at the brand collateral with a view of updating it all in the near future.

Currently their logo is lowercase bold Trebuchet, which I find ungainly and a bit ugly.

I was hoping that I could get some suggestions for typefaces that are sans or humanist, so some character, not too formal, but also not too quirky.

Any suggestions gratefully received!


To indent or not to indent (after images)?


Hello Typophiles,

A few colleagues and I were discussing book design and the interaction of text with images/figures that flow within the surrounding text. Specifically, we were debating whether or not the paragraph that follows an image (and its caption, if present) should be indented.

Font query


I am designing the latest issue of one of my magazines. The font we use is Kepler as headings and body copy mixed with Verlag as title headings. I am not loving the font Kepler and want to change it but not too dramatically - any advice much appreciated on which alternative font I could use that would mix well with Verlag. I have looked at Farnham but fear it may be too trendy for the magazine. It is a womans magazine, but for the older generation.

Thanks in advance

Opening a discussion on Digital V Print

To introduce myself briefly, I am a 22 year old Masters of Computer Graphic Design candidate in Whanganui, New Zealand. I am looking to start bit of a dialogue here: digital publication compared to print publication, with respect to the retention, enjoyment and legibility of the information we publish. I have included some questions to begin the discussion below. I would greatly appreciate your participation in this discussion, and hopefully it is something that we can all grow and learn from.

Publishing Network

Hello, I am attempting to create a logo for a publishing company. Company name is called Publishing Network. The organization is a membership based company which allows members to access multiple publications and educational material throughout the US.

Key workds: network, access, global, books, publications,

My approach has been to create a visual that conveys that message. So far, i've only concentrated on the mark. i'd love to hear your thoughts on what is working and what is not.

Thanks in advance.
