New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I have to write up my doctoral thesis eventually (when I run out of reasons to procrastinate) and it should look nice (never mind the content...).
So I was having a look around and at the moment I have decided on Neutra Text Light for titling and headings and Jenson for the copy.
My aim to use fonts that work well together, and ideally anyone who is reading the thesis (and is not a typophile) won't even notice my clever selection of font, only subconsciously acknowledging the easy legibility and harmony (and flow) of the text and headings. The headings should not overpower the following text.
The copy will be in 12px with line spacing 1.25 to 1.75, headings around 30px, 21px, and 15px. There are no guidelines on what fonts to use.
Do these fonts work well in these sizes on long documents in academic (management studies) context, based on your experience/ deep knowledge? Any suggestions for alternatives? Or should I stick with Arial and Times New Roman and get my hat?
Thanks for your answers!
