Forgive me, still a bit awestruck by Fonts In Use. Like I've walked into a new store, and am slowly realizing that its shelves are full of my next favorite things. Thanks so much for making this!
Omnes and Freight make a wonderful pairing. Another piece of advice I've found useful for choosing and combining type is to stick with one designer, and that applies here. Maybe it's for that reason that I see complementary details in the two faces. Slant angles feel the same, cap to x-height feels the same...
But this is a really phenomenal match, and the typesetting of the magazine is brilliant. So many great decisions.
I agree that the pairing is working well, though it's hard to say much about how the details were handled from these images. Do you have any higher-res samples of the interior typesetting Stephen?
These images come from Mark Porter’s website. I'll ask him for larger samples.
