I'm redesigning printed forms for a company that has provided me with brand guidelines. Their headline font is a bold sans serif font and the font specified for body text is a serif one.
I would assume that to follow their brand, it would be recommended to use the serif font for the all text and labels on the form. Generally I don't think I've seen many forms that utilize serif fonts in that way, or if I have, it has been on forms that have been photocopied so many times they're barely legible anymore.
I'm tempted to deviate from the guidelines for the forms because I think that the sans serif font would look more clean.
Looking for any advice or input on whether I should stick with the serif as defined in the brand guidelines, or just use a lighter weight of the headline font for all the text and labels on the form?
