Arno + Delicious

fguimaraes's picture

Does anyone think Jos Buivenga's Delicious Italic makes for a good sans companion to Arno Pro (also italic)? I actually think Legacy Sans would be the perfect match, but it's not an option. I tried out several sans families and really liked the look of Delicious (no pun intended).

Any and all opinions greatly appreciated.

Arno is wider, heavier and more chirographic. Arno also has the feel of a face that’s been refined countless times whereas Delicious appears deliberately quirky in comparison. If you’re only using Delicious in sizes and places where the degree of difference works in your favor you might be able to pull it off, but it seems like a stretch to me.

But WTF, right? Unless this is a really critical job go for it and let us know how it comes out.
