fontshop fonts - i can't tame them

alexfjelldal's picture

For several corporate identity projects, i'v been trying out fontshop fonts.
more sepcifically, i've looked at some corporate families,

- officina
- fago
- zine
- unit

and so on.

I really like these fonts, but with their narrow letters and loose kerning, and just can't figure out how to make body copy look good with them.

any tips or comments?

narrow letters and loose kerning MAKE for good body copy. Hello.

Hello. i disagree. i think the default settings of these fonts is too wide. The text sort of falls apart.

Tighten up the tracking, and see what Optical kerning in InDesign looks like, rather than Metrics.
In Quark, you can edit the tracking and kerning tables, IIRC.
