Is it advisable to use Archer (Hoefler) for headings with Quadraat Sans (FontFont), probably condensed, for the body of a resume / CV for someone working in teaching technology?
This website http://www.typeconnection.com/matches.php recommends Archer with Eurostile, as an 'embrace the other' strategy. Although I really like Archer, Eurostile is too severe for my tastes.
If you have any suggestions for a friendly slab (teachers need to be friendly) + square-ish sans (for a technological feel with a human touch) then I would be very grateful.
As I'm not applying for the North American market, I don't think the Martha Stewart connotation applies. I would be happy to use Rockwell as the slab font. I like Geogrotesque (Emtype), Sanuk (FontFont), and Riga (Ludwig Type). However I'm new to the font pairing game and I don't have much idea. I did see advice about pairing fonts from the same stable. Impressive and distinctive though Forza / Vitesse Sans is (Hoefler-without-Frere-Jones), I find it a bit too severe. However I have no idea and not much taste, so I am happy to be wrong. Just because I don't like a font doesn't mean I wouldn't use it if advised, except Helvetica...
I have looked at lists of Eurostile alternatives on various websites but haven't yet found anything I prefer to Quadraat Sans. I considered putting a list of them here with my reasons for not choosing them but I didn't want this post to be off-puttingly long.
I ruled out fonts because I really dislike single-storey 'a', single-storey 'g', and 'r' without a spur sticking up over the shoulder, like in Maven Pro. Helvetica leaves me cold (sorry) and Meta isn't for me (sorry Erik, though I do rate Meta Serif highly).
Thanks in advance
