I am currently in love with the font Greta Text and would love to use this font for a student magazine. However, everyone else on the team feels it's a bit too serious looking. I disagree, but what can I say. I am basically looking for a serif font that is between Greta Text and FF Tisa which was deemed too "friendly".
It's body copy this would be for. Since everyone has suddenly become a typography expert on the team — I think I'll need a couple of suggestions to woo them. I'm basically looking for something between the two — contemporary enough, not too serious, but not as friendly (I don't know where they came up with this!) as FF Tisa.
Also, each page of the magazine is 210 x 297 mm — if people would have any idea what size in points the body copy should be, along with any line-spacing suggestions, that would be extremely helpful. The magazine is currently at 9.3 pts (I think) Freight Sans, but that's too large in my opinion. I come from a background in web design, so I'm not really experienced enough and don't want to mess it up.
Thanks for your help.
