    I'm assuming that you're referring to the size of headlines that might span multiple columns, right?

    If so, common sense might seem to be the rule. I mean, you're not going to squeeze a 60-point...

    I'd normally be inclined to do the same. In this case, though, the name is so visually specific that failing to pick up on the visual cues would risk a disconnect.

    Similarly, a restaurant...

    I would say so, what works well spanning five columns isn't going to work well spanning one.

    The colour choice and softness of the shapes makes it seem like it's geared only to women. When combined with the name it almost has a pharmaceutical vibe to it.

    ironically, the colour choices...

    Leyral— You are right. My error—I confused the dates. It was Myriad that was introduced in 1992. Frutiger was released in about 1976, not long after being introduced in the signage for the Charles De Gaulle Airport.

          I recently have come to like Eurostile and Klavika as far as sans serif goes

          I think Elephant, Georgia and Bodoni have the wins for me in serif

                Last job I did for a big ol' corporation that uses Klavika for identity, I ended up buying the whole family. Quite nice, though I feel the italics are under-used compared to the uprights.

                  I like the letter shapes for Klavika, but I agree with you about the italics being under-used. I'm not sure which existed first but Tiltium Text has similar shape, and pretty light weights. Though light weight is dreadful for screenprinting at small sizes, it looks like the screener sneezed and left a thin line where something else should have.

                  Have you ever used Itsadzoke? I haven't used it much design wise but the characters are lovely to look at.
