New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hi, I'm an information design student struggling to find a good typeface or typeface combination for my thesis dissertation, I've tried a bunch but none have convinced me.
I was wondering if anyone could help me with the choice(s). Here are the absolutely necesary requirements:
- That is prints nice on laser printers
- Very complete family sets, as I'll probably be using various levels of hierarchy
- Lining and old-style figures, as I'll be using lots of tables to display information
- The most important one: that it's extremely readable
-A large x-height
-Economical on space without sacrificing readability
-That it looks contemporary, intelligent and rational
I'm taking a look at Whitney (H&FJ) right now for headings and tables. Is this a good choice? Any alternatives?
I'm also torn between making the body serifs or sans-serifs, any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
