I'm looking for a simple, honest and approachable san serif for use in body text. My idea is to have a journal feel but without being too themey. Something with the characteristics above that come together looking elegant. I loved the feeling of Frutiger on my page ( one of my faves) and although quite neutral it's the complete opposite of what I want, its cold and distant and not really in line with the honest feel i'd like to convey.
I like Myriad Pro but wanted to see if there are others you can recommend, perhaps something I am simply not finding. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
This is my first post on here!
I wondered if you knew of a typeface that represented these sort of values of a person:
honest, approachable, reliable, the original 'Mc'coy', and homely
I wondered if a serif typeface said 'stern' too much, so maybe a Sans Serif is more appropriate
By 'Original' I mean someone that has been about for years but is still among the best but maybe needing to be more modern
