Pairing high-ascender fonts like Brandon Grotesque

Hi guys,

New here.

I'm trying to pair Brandon Grotesque (Brandon Text actually) with a nice serif like Copernicus, Merriweather, Sina, Georgia. You get it, right ? Pretty easy at this point.

My issue is to match sizes of the fonts because Brandon Text is a high ascender font. All the serif I try to pair with have a larger x-height than Brandon.

Basically, in a perfect world, I should be able to have both fonts on the same line with a similar Ascender height. I know Garamond works well, but I look for a font with a contemporary feeling.

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance guys.
