I'm working on a redesign of a website for a College of Fine Arts. I've got a fair amount of flexibility creatively, but I'm trying to remain true to the established ID system, as well as give a bit of a nod back to the design I'm replacing.
Now, one of the things I'm keeping from the previous design is Trebuchet, which I'm using for the copy (it's currently also used for headlines, and just about everything save for the Logo type - that's done in Friz Quadrata). I would like to find a good headline font, and my options are pretty open - I intend to use font replacement to combat the more restrictive choices I face if I rely solely on browser-friendly fonts (currently, I'm looking at sIFR). Of course, if I don't have to, I would rather use something more universal. The big rub of all this, of course, is that these headlines need to be dynamic, so creating a static image for each headline is not a solution.
I'm trying to maintain a more modern feel, and to keep the design clean. I've been placing News Gothic (bold) as my headlines, and I like the way it feels, but my fear is that the difference between the two fonts - Trebuchet and News Gothic - is not different enough, and/or that either of them don't sit nicely with Friz Quadrata. Any suggestions?
