Font to compliment Chalet (1970) - to be used for body text

buda's picture

Looking for a typeface to compliment Chalet 1970 (which is being used for the headers). The font will be used for body text in promotional material, and on the website (if it is a Google web font). Any recommendations?

Bit of background to the project is that it is for a fitness brand, which has lower case Chalet 1970 in it's logo.

If you want something with high readability that renders superbly as a webfont:

Thanks for the reply. Is a lovely font, however I was looking for a san serif font. Should have put that in my first post! I am definitely looking for something with high readability though.

I feel that a typeface where there isn't a top hook (sorry for the lack of correct terminology!) on the letter a. I believe that would go well with the circular and geometric feel of Chalet.

We call that the "monocular", "single-story" or "infant" form (I prefer the first). The problem is fonts with such an "a" are rarely suitable for long text.

What about going in another direction in terms of geometry?

Although I don't know about its webfont performance.
