I need your opinion. I am currently in the process of completing a booklet. It contains mainly photos and illustrations, with some text explaining the photos and legends for my illustrations.
Most pages contain a headline, which I've set in "Bliss Pro Extra Bold", size: 23pt, leading: 18pt.
The text is set in "Vista Sans Book", size: 10pt, leading: 12pt.
All settings in InDesign.
I'm no professional in type, but you are ;-) - what do you think? I've experimented with "Agenda" for my headlines but found it to be too strict and too strong a contrast to my illustrations which mostly consist of natural shapes... I've also tried "The Sans" for the text (I guess it's a faux pas to set small text in TheSans anyway) and although I like the typeface itself, I found it kinda hard to read.
I want the text to look modern and contemporary but not soulless.
What do you think - it's not another Gill/Frutiger booklet ;-)
