Trade Gothic and Mrs. Eaves

new2type's picture

Hi!
I am currently formatting my resume and was thinking about using Trade Gothic for headings and having the rest of the text in Mrs. Eaves. It looks good to my relatively untrained eye but I've noticed that usually it is suggested that Mrs. Eaves be paired with a geometrical sans serif. Is this a blasphemous combination or is it ok? Any suggestions and advice welcome!

There's nothing "wrong" with the combination. Of course, if you wanted to be more conventional, you could pair it with Mr. Eaves.

Mrs Eaves is too loose to be a proper text face.

I like it as a text face. And if this is a resume, there won't be a great deal of running text anyway.

True. And that wakes me up to an unspoken issue that's more significant here than high readability: does Mrs Eaves -or whatever font you're considering- say something relevant about you? Or rather: does it say something you'd like a prospective employer to hear?
