Somewhere between Vag Rounded and Mod, any ideas?

Hi,

A client of mine, who is not well versed in the vocabulary of typography, wants a bold display face to be used on a poster. After showing him countless specimens he's requested something between Vag Rounded and Mod (see attached pics). It's left me slightly stumped to be honest, as the gulf between those two typefaces is pretty huge! If anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them.

Many thanks

Jono

Hi Jono,

you could show him Ondrej Jób’s Klimax – it’s blacker than Mod, cuter than VAG, and on top of that, fresh and versatile.

That's a really good shout Florian, I'll see what his budget will stretch to.

Any other suggestions people?

Thanks

The picture is of Vag Rounded Black, I should have said that in the first place. My client wants it much bolder than that even, so Florian's suggestion was a good one considering the woolly description I gave. Any more suggestions would be welcome though.

Thanks
