Jean François was totally right. This looks better.
Now that I think about it, I remember hearing this advice before: to pair geometric sans-serifs with high-contrast serifs. I'd love to know more about why this works. Because when I found CamingoDos, it seemed to have structural similarities with Kepler ... and that method of finding pairings often works for me too.

It definitely works & I'm curious to know if there's some sort of specific why as well.
I'm sold on Kepler— gonna keep that in my back pocket :)
Been thinking of using this combo myself. Just feels right somehow.
Works splendedly! I recently came to the same conclusion myself only in my case it was regarding Gotham in combination with Minion Pro. I think it's a matter of contrast. Sans vs serif, classic vs. contemporary, geometry vs. caligraphy ... I would love to hear more elaborated thoughts on why this works though.
The caps have related structures here, but what about lowercase?
I think this H&FJ post answers why they work so well together: it’s the poise.
