Helvetica Neue

Good morning to all...

Designing a brochure and wanting to use the Helvetica Neue Font (all variations have been bought)... Has anyone used this font in conjunction with other fonts in a brochure? And if yes, could you be kind enough to share font names that go well with Helvetica Neue?

Thanks very much.

If you've got the whole family, you don't need anything else.
That's the point of Helvetica and the International Style.

Bringhurst suggests Haas Clarendon, although I have never tried this.

If you want to be wacky, there's Helserif. But a more important question is: what is the brochure about?

Thanks to all of you... I want to create a brochure for a real estate agency... I am using Helvetica neue and I would like to complement it with another one for the text within the brochure (long sentences). I tried using the same font everywhere (different variations though) but while I like the font for headers, logo letters and so on, I found it very cold and too... mechanic?... for long paragraphs of text. Was wondering if there was another font I could use to ease a little on legibility. Your suggestions are welcome.

Transitional and Modern Serifs should work quite well, but also Garaldes like Garamond – depends on what kind of atmosphere you aim at. If you are looking for a more human, legible, friendly touch, choose an open typeface from the Garalde subclass like Plantin, Galliard, Swift or Proforma For more neutrality browse the Transitional/Baroque like Utopia, Rotation, Farnham. More classy, austere look in the areas of Modern (bracketed) typefaces.

I would recommend a rather broad face with not too much contrast, something sturdy, real estate.
