    Founders Grotesk is very nice. Also, I like Apres, the print version of Prelude, the Palm webOS system font, because it is out of the ordinary. It reminds me of Avenir. I like how the Apres "y" tails back almost to the previous letter.

    Akkurat is a great suggestion. Kinda limited in weights though.

    Also Alright Sans. Avenir too. And Univers is a great classic neutral sans.

    I cannot find an alternative since to me the unique grotesk is akzidenz.

    it may be old or overused but no way, to me it's alway the first choice.

    the best "not-akzidenz" I've found it's founders by klimt, but I think it's less readible than ag.

    regards.
