Suggest a font similar to a shape

Hi,

There is a logo I'm working on and now I've been struggling to find a typeface that would nicely complement it. I thought that I could perform some crowdsourcing here on Typophile. I can't show the logo now but the attached image sums it up pretty well. It's geometric, modern, rounded, drawn on a grid but at the same time looks like made with a flat calligraphic brush.

I must say that so far only Museo looks like a good match but I'm slightly put off by the fact its free and ubiquitous. If nothing better is found I might fall back to it, however.

Thanks in advance!

Key words to consider: contemporary, community, traditional values.

BTW I wouldn't equate "crowdsourcing" with simply asking for opinions. :-)

I have a couple with slab serifs that might work:
