Friendly sans serif that you love?

Hi All,

I have been a lurker on this forum for a little while but now I have a question that I would like to ask. :)

I am working on a property / land release job and I am looking for a friendly and contemporary sans-serif face, perhaps with a hint of personality. NOT GOTHAM! But something in the same vein, perhaps something new that you have seen and would love to see used more.

Suggestions welcome!

Wow: Swagg IS a gem. Definitely contemporary, with just enough swagg-er of its own to set it apart from the crowd…

I'm very partial to Freight Sans.

I also like the new Bernini by Tim Ahrens, Kohinoor Latin, Panno, Alright, Tabac Sans and Akagi. Apart from Panno which is on all others are on myfonts.

Oh, Linotype Akko too.

For "friendly" I rather like Cronos.

You know, I was forced to license Omnes Pro for an ongoing project.

It's friendly, yes, but probably looks too much like a pampers advert for what you need.

The main reason I bring this up: at first, I wasn't entirely pleased to have to use it as I'm a bit tired of rounded fonts. However, I have become a fan -- with all its weights, stylistic sets, numbers that come enclosed in circles (massive, massive, timesaver), arrows of all sorts.

I'm quite surprised to find that it is the best font I have ever used.

It probably doesn't work for your project, and I don't mean to hijack your thread, but Omnes has helped me re-evaluate how I'll choose fonts for projects, especially if they involve a lot of typesetting and information display/design.
