Children's Charity newsletter with Helvetica Rounded Bold

altoption's picture

I'm designing a newsletter for a children's charity that uses Helvetica Rounded Bold in their logo. I'm looking for another face to use for headlines, and a serif for the body copy.

Any suggestions?

Also, is there a lightweight version of Helvetica Rounded, or another face in a lightweight I could use with it?

Have a look at FF Speak. It's very friendly and works well at large sizes.

For body copy, it might be nice to recall the traditional "schoolbook" type of vintage children's books:

Plantin Schoolbook
ParaType Schoolbook
Century Schoolbook
Bembo Schoolbook - a bit more formal

Thanks, Stephen. I love the conceptual approach. Thanks for pointing me in that direction.
