Amplitude alternative suggestion
0

I'm looking for something similar to Amplitude. By similar I mean something that is sans, is a little bit agressive, has display size qualities yet could still be used for short text sized advertising paragraphs.

If any of this makes sense.

It would be a primary face for a corporate identity. Our budget is just a bit less than would be needed to purchase the entire amplitude family. Im looking for something that can come in around $200 for the family, or at least under $300.

Any bright ideas?

First, rather than assuming you will purchase the entire family, how many weights and widths do you truly need? Example: get 4 weights of Amplitude in 2 widths for $280.

Amplitude 1 Normal - Light, Regular, Bold, Black - $140
Amplitude 1 Condensed - Light, Regular, Bold, Black - $140

The same eight fonts would cost only $240 at Font Bureau, the publisher of Amplitude, due to Font Bureau's "bulk discount."

Mark, did you appropriate Altria's logo? ;-)

Ewwwww, no, lol. I actually found it on deviantART quite some time ago.

But now that Altria have appropriated my avatar, I should probably look for something else... :)

Hey, if you think Sophisto is "agressive" enough, you'll get the whole pack for just $179
