Type combinations for a magazine - Scala + ?

girish's picture

i am tempted to use scala as the main body text for a small magazine fashion supplement, but what would be a good sans for headlines? would verlag work with scala? or should one stick to tried and tested combinations like verlag and miller? any suggestions...?

cheers

Isn't Scala overused? It's about fashion - be a bit adventurous.

Scala was overused in the 90s, but it has been a while since I've seen it. Maybe it is due for a comeback? But I would be inclined to look around for something fresher.

You shouldn't go with "tired and tested" [sic]. Rather, you should try and test. Why not upload some PDFs of type combinations?

Actually less fashion, more lifestyle supplement for a small politics and culture magazine. I would have wanted to try and test, but this one has to happen in a week's time - an experiment more like.
Besides, I have access to very few new typefaces. I see scala used really nicely in Theme magazine. http://www.thememagazine.com/. Would have liked to use Verlag or something similar for headlines, though I am also trying combinations like Fedra Sans Display and Greta Text; Cholla for display with Fedra Text.

cheers
