New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Looking for suggestions for a face to cover the basic needs of a university gallery. My old school needs some help so I'm going to attempt to assist. The director likes letterpress, so we are off on a good foot.
Needs would be signage on walls (largest), wall texts, invitations, postcards and brochures for exhibits.
I've set the gallery name in Dolly bld, and like the idea of a serif that is versatile with a little flavor, but feel the bold would fare better at large sizes than the small caps.
They are using Akzidenz Grot at the moment.
Looks like Freight could be very useful for this application.
Also, newsprint stock may be in the mix as a low-cost option for some publications.
