    Question Alternative grotesk sans? Helvetica is so boring...

    Hi guys,
    which alternative do you know about Helvetica?
    For example, I like FF Bau (by Christian Schwartz)

    Thanks man.

    Ok, Helvetica have good shapes, but today is everywhere! It use for anything: baker shop, rental ad, advertise post and also for the signs that invite the dog to not shit here (xD).
    Peolpe abuse of this typeface.

    Personally I've opted fot ITC Franklin Gothic, URW Grotesk, Aktiv Grotesk and Benton Sans over Helvetica. Still like Helvetica but sometimes it gets a bit over-saturated. On one of my last projects I used Adria Grotesk for a contemporary spin. I quite liked the option of mixing upright italics with the standard cut.

    Swit: Thanks for the great link to typecache.com, now added to my bookmarks!!!

    Yes, Intro is amazing. I was introduced to Intro and Neutraface as replacements for Helvetica. But after a few typesetting exercises, Intro has won me over.

    Take a look at Hurme Geometric Sans No.4. It's a grotesk font with a flair of fashion. You might like it.

    Bau is great, Benton Sans is alternative and maybe Museo Sans.
