    Hi, I am in the process of designing my CV/resume and would like to know whether you guys & girls think a combination Bauer Bodoni for the headings and Stempel Garamond Roman for the body is appropriate for such a document?

    thanks

    Personal subjective opinion: Serifs play better with sans-serifs.

    If you get a chance, show us a sample of what you have in mind. It would help to see how you're treating the typography.

    thanks for your response. I decided to go with a Gotham Medium/Sabon combo in the end.

    Don't forget this article:

    This will give you a good dose of the rules and their application with some nice visuals for typeface pairs.
