text typeface to go with Bryant compressed, any tips?

Hi everyone,

I'm using Bryant compressed (medium and bold) for my headlines, i'm going to spend some money buying a new font for text that works nicely with Bryant.

Nice would be if i'd get some tips on a sans serif as well as a serif to go with Bryant compressed.

I'd appreciate every tip!

Almost everything can go, as long it's modern.

Without any hint about intended usage, subject matter, etc., it would be difficult to give any meaningful suggestion.

hey riccard0, its for an informative free folder/brochure (4-folded) about the history and future of a historical building that went trough lots of changes during the years, at one time it was a school, a bank and now part of the building is used as an exhibition hall.

I'd try to find a serif that contrasts with the roundness of Bryant; try something sharp and readable in the ballpark of Mercury, Farnham, Newzald or even Warnock.

For the sans, maybe something a bit harder like Tungsten, Forza or Breuer?

thank you very much for the reply Bendy!

In fact, thinking about this more, pretty much any serif font is likely to work; Bryant is so quirky that it won't be hard to find a contrasting face. I've even used Bryant with Stag and Minion.
