    Tired of Futura, but want the same sort of feel... Need some alternatives

    I love the look that Futura produces... It's clean and classic... still feels modern and vintage at the same time. However, I feel like it's overused nowadays (see Wes Anderson films for an example). Are there other fonts that you like that produce a similar timeless, clean, and classic feel? Gotham feels nice, but that's overused too.

    I should mention that I'm looking to use it in a heading / all-caps.

    gosh all the classic san serifs could be feasable - gill sans, franklin gothic for example- most are overused because they are so timeless - its a catch 22

    Its a slight departure from Futura, but I been finding myself using Gotham a lot recently when I would consider Futura.

    happened to me something. I think the taste for some typefaces is temporary. I took 2 months trying to use Georgia. I'm in love with the letter S in this typeface.

    Anivers and Gotham are great alternatives. As well as Univers, but I see someone else already mentioned that.

    Please check Neutraface2. Personally, it is combined with gotham look and futura.

    Proxima Nova is pretty cool, its typekit's closest to gotham.
