Pairing Type on a Mini Brochure

MLucas's picture

This small Z-fold brochure folds down to 3 x 4.25" (with the cover title, "The Unique Woman.")
I've been trying to pair two complementary handwritten typefaces that work nicely with the brochure's artwork.
I've used Prater-script and Handsome-nib and like them both, but I'm not convinced they are the answer. I don't think the goal is for them to be written in the same "hand," as much as it is for them to blend well with the free spirit of the piece and create an overall harmony.
Any feedback, suggestions or insight is appreciated—I've never been involved in a forum before and I miss being part of a critique.

I guess it would help to provide the image. I'm still getting the hang of this.

Not about the type-pairing:
Nice drawings...
I would justify the text when you don't have square text-boxes... Are you going to replace the drawings with real footage? Will the text be inverted/negative?

Instead of using a script font, why not just write the script text yourself...maybe get one other person to write the other script text and scan them both in? Possibly getting the client to write it? This will go along with the existing hand-drawn illustrations and pull everything together.

Other than that, everything else looks great.

I agree. Nothing says "unique" and "one-of-a-kind" like a hand-drawn script.
