Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing typefaces, part of Designing a Digital Magazine.
…Let's just take a brief step back and talk for a moment about type face choices.…I'm using two type faces, Museo and Museo Sans.…As their name suggests, they're designed to be used together.…They're designed by Jos Buivenga, a type designer from the Netherlands.…And I particularly like them because…they're very warm and friendly and informal.…And they fit the tone of the magazine very well.…They have the same x-height, which makes them very easy to use in combination.…
They have a high x-height.…And they have low contrast, meaning there's relatively little…difference between the thin and thick parts of the stroke.…All these things contribute to making them very readable.…For the body text, I'm using the sans serif…version and for the heads, I'm using the serif version.…This inverts the typical formula used in print…of sans serif for heads, serif for body copy.…I think on screen, because sans serifs are that much more simple than…serif type faces, they tend to work…better, although that is a massive generalization.…
