Vista sans with Garamond or Minion?

felixana's picture

How about Vista Sans regular for headlines and Garamond or Minion for bodytext?

Do they match? I was trying to follow some of the "rules" in fontmatching I read on the other threads covering that topic. I chose Garamond and Minion because they are both humanist, and I compared apertures of e,c,a and tails of J,t etc. with Vista Sans Regular and it seems they should match well???

How am I doing? I'm mostly lost but I'm trying hard. ;))

I recently used for a magazine Vista Sans black (titling alts on) for headlines with Garamond Premiere Pro regular for text to wonderful results. VS also looks great with Arno. Good luck!

I've used Vista and Garamond a few times for scientific publications – works like a charm. If you're going to work with (narrow) columns, I'd prefer Minion for body.
