Pairing Fedra Serif with a script!?!

Hildebrant's picture

Well, what would be some of your ideas on pairing Fedra Serif, with a script, or more decorative display face? Ideas?

on a different note, how do you think Sabath would work used in a trade mark, and using Fedra as body text?

Fedra is a bit idiosyncratic already - maybe a more docile display face would match it better?
But something contemporary, not a grot - I guess a dark (and maybe wide) humanist sans.

I think a logo in Sabbath (Newlyn's, right?) might work really well with Fedra.

If you can get Jürgen Weltin's Yellow font (attached) for display, that would rule: it has some blackletter overtones, and a wonderful synthetic feel, just like Bilak's work.

Hrant --

Sorry should have been more clear -- emigres Sabbath Black, that stylistic blackletter face.
I'm quite fond of that face.

Your other titling suggestions are quite nice too.

Like Cezanne, yeah that would work (hee hee)

>or more decorative display face
I don't know if it will work, but Sauna (perhaps bold italic) from Underware has a large x-height and fat serifs like Fedra Serif, so it is worth looking at if your project is suited to its jolly informality and wonderful balance.

i really like sauna as well, although it will only work in cetain circumstances, as william pointed out.

Tiffany -- Serif A, used for body text.

William -- I do like Sauna, but for the very 'classic' look I am trying to acheive, I don't think it ould be a good fit.

I'm really looking for something very decorative, so for Chapter titles (even though this is not a book atmosphere).
Really a script is what I have in mind, something like Bickham, but not. ;)
