Looking for alternatives to Archer

london 0 hull 4's picture

Archer is a lovely typeface, but here in Sweden it have gone too popular, especially in magazine design. Pretty much every other lifestyle-cover in the stands have Archer on it. So here I am, with my first post on Typophile, asking you for great alternatives to Archer.

I'm looking for slab-serifs with a classy och and soft feeling. Great span of weights, from hairline to black, is qualifying.

I like Jubilat, but it haven't any hairline. Charlie is also quite nice.

Any suggestions?

Neutraface Slab? Less playful, four text weights, many display options.
