What to use with Optima

hanwhoa's picture

So I'm laying out a magazine. I really like Optima and I think I'd like to use it primarily for body text...but I'm having difficulty choosing a font to couple with Optima for display text and the like. I want a dynamic layout. Any thoughts/ideas?

Is the magazine about Botox? If you want dynamism, start with
a text face that doesn't look like Michael Jackson... these days.
Sorry for being harsh - I just can't stand that vapid hag.

Trying to be positive: Do you know about Pascal? Or Legato?

Very good thing could be said about Optima, but “dynamic” isn’t one I'd choose.
For better understanding your needs, however, we should know what type of magazine you’re talking about: topic, style, readers, etc.
Finally, the Critique section is used for showing samples upon which receive advice. Your request would be better in the Design section of the forum.

haha wow! Well I'm sort of a design/type novice so I reckon I'm not quite as jaded as you regarding typefaces. Honestly I probably won't use Optima at this point, but I'm still curious about suggestions.

Checking out Pascal & Legato....
