I'm looking for a serif face that expresses similar strength, grace, restraint. Thoughts?
Msou, you did pose an interesting question. I'm glad to be first one to respond.
My choice: Beorcana
I knew you'd say archer, heh. How about other than HFJ?
Beorcana is a good suggestion, though technically not a serif. I would go with FF Tisa or Swift.
Michelle: Chicago Condensed 72pt
Barak: Chicago Regular 64pt
(yes I know these are not serifed)
TNC -- Times New Century
If Obama is Gotham perhaps Michelle is Gotham rounded?
thanks for some great suggestions!
If Obama is Gotham then maybe Michelle is Whitney?
I think she's a little more pretty than Whitney, which is more of a casual workhorse.
I'm liking Andrade but I've never used it myself. Anyone know if it's ok to work with?
(edit: explaining myself: she's too lithe to be old-style or transitional, too cosmopolitan to be slab, too strong and plainspoken for something whiskery like Didot. I'm trying desperately to work in a pun about arms. There!)
> I think she’s a little more pretty than Whitney
Actually I think for a black woman she's pretty homely.
Perhaps Michelle BF?
That would only get Msou's work submitted to the Lack of Typographic Imagination pool ;)
For Michelle I'd go for Esprit:
For Barack perhaps Avenir:
or Stone Humanist:

I haven't actually said that I was shaping content about M.O., just that I am IDing type that embodies her qualities. ;)
That said, Michelle BF doesn't fit the bill.
Sorry, should have included a winking smiley. I do love that illustration of a sultry woman of mystery, though.
