I'm looking for an elegant and not-too-busy italic font to pair with Impressum bold headline. See options I've tried already. Most seem to be too light, or too busy. All ideas welcome! Thanks!enter image description here

Here is what I would try first: find a soft sans-serif, such as Optima. It feels gentle without serifs:

If you still want a serif font, I would go with something that has more contrast than the ones you are experimenting with. The block/slab-ish feel of the "first congregational" needs a little contrast in the serif font below, to not feel off. You could of course use the original font, impressum, as well. Here, I am suggesting something like Didot; or find similar fonts of the Italian style with a good deal of contrast between strokes.

I think a Sans Serif font works best. See samples below:

  • I agree with the above user, contrasting fonts usualy are very nice, ie thick bold fonts go good with thin fonts. – Daniel Jun 23 '14 at 14:16

    Your answer makes me wonder if you even read the question. – Scott Jun 23 '14 at 10:48
  • It's the quickest way to get matching fonts. – Richard Jun 23 '14 at 10:54
  • And you can even ask what font something is from an unidentified sample. – Richard Jun 23 '14 at 10:54

    The fonts in the image are the ones they have already tried - therefore they know what fonts they are. So they don't need to do to WhatTheFont! – wildandjam Jun 23 '14 at 11:22
