1990's - present British typeface

Looking for a recent british typeface, preferably sans serif. Don't want to use something like Gill Sans which has been used to death, so looking for something a little different.

Any help much appreciated

Jeremy Tankard's work would be a good place to start...

Bliss might be a little too like Gill Sans for your taste, maybe Fenland would do. Or perhaps FS Elliot.

Recent + British = Tankard.

Another option is Houschka: http://www.g-type.com/houschka-pro-font.

Yeah i've just been looking at Bliss by Tankard, very nice typeface.

Priori Sans might also qualify as a "warped Gill Sans".

Nice alternative characters and diamond tittles!

I like David Quay’s Kade, but it is clearly a display face.
