Hello everybody! My name is Taylor Buley -- I'm an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania and editor of the Pennsylvania Independent. I've got a pretty cool project that I'm currently working on and wanted to get you guys in on.
A little while back, due to copyright restrictions on our masthead we were forced to change our banner. We went for the more modern look you can see at the top of our website and in the PDF issue. We tried to compliment the modernity by raising the photos and giving them drop shadows.
We want to continue the modernization process by choosing and establishing a new font for the header, the byline and the text of the paper.
Our only competition is the school sponsored rag -- whose been recieving school funding since 1879 and hasn't updated their style since. We already have better journalism, so I want to compliment our work with a fantastic canvas to print on.
So I'm turning it over to you guys. Are there fonts you think would work well? We have little to no budget, so freeware is preferred; but cheap files can be considered. There's so much that needs work that I'm sure you all will have some good suggestions. Thanks!
