Alternative to TS Torque

hey everyone,

this board has been incredibly helpful to so many past requests, so I’m really looking forward to your replies!

I’m currently working for a client and I am looking for a squarish typeface with rounded edges. So far I am rather pleased with typesupply's »Torque« http://vllg.com/typesupply/torque – however it’s lacking a semibold between medium and bold – the bold face is a little to heavy for this design that we're aiming for.

I’m having a hard time finding proper alternatives to torque, because it is very specific, so I was hoping maybe one of you folks knows a similar typeface?

thank you in advance!

Thanks so much for your first replies! This is for a whole corporate design, so it has to work as a logo font as well as headlines. :)

I like Brooklyn and Blender a lot, but both have sharp corners. My aim was to find that squared-sans feeling with rounded corners, similar to Torque.

If you look closely, all those sharp little edges have been rounded off, which gives it a less aggressive feel.

Typesupply created these for House Industries which might have something useable for you: http://www.houseind.com/fonts/unitedcollection

As mentioned earlier, Klavika fits what you are after. Also have you seen Alphaville? http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/shinn/alphaville/

Another option is to approach Village or Typesupply directly and ask them about the weight you are after. I've down that before and found foundries are usually quite helpful.
