New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Long time lurker, first-time poster!
I have been asked to provide some input on font selection and overall design for a prospectus-type publication for an architecture & design research centre.
The preferred text faces are either TEFF's Lexicon No. 2 or Font Bureau's Proforma, the main challenge now is to make a choice regarding the selection of a suitable font for the 'secondary' text elements (headings, subs, captions etc...) - preferably a sans-serif.
Images and graphic materials will form a large component of the overall content, although there will also be substantial bodies of text. The proposed size is around A5-ish, to enable easy and economical postage, and as a result some of the text blocks may be set at quite small sizes (6-7pt).
Any suggestions with regard to either text or sans/display fonts would be most welcome (although the preferences for Lexicon and Proforma come from above!).
Please excuse the mangling of the typographic language for I am just a simple architect - but a passionate typophile!
