A new teaser arrived in the mail from Emigre today. It features Vista (http://www.emigre.com/EF.php?fid=200). Now, what do I need to do in a somewhat quirky sans ...Good question. The display weights (as in package 3) might be useful for ads or titling. I really dislike the spacing of the light, book, and regular weights — like Mrs. Eaves, it begs to be tightened, but I suspect tracking in would reveal spacing problems.

But the heavier weights are interesting without being bizarre, which should make them useful in logos and branding.

Based on Xavier Dupré’s sketches, I would like to see what his serif faces would look like — with more angularity and interesting hooks, like the one shown on the s in the Emigre booklet.
