Looking for font similar to ITC Bauhaus
0

Hi,

I am looking for a font similar to ITC Bauhaus. I did find some alternatives like: Pump, Blippo, Moderna but I'm not satisfied with them. They look 'outdated' to me. Not trendy (contemporay is a better word) enough. Important is the font has no spur or serif. It doesn't need to be complete round.

Thanks for your help.

How about the Chalet fonts from House industries - specifically Paris 70, London 70, New York 70 & Tokyo.

Thanks for your suggestions. I have also been looking further and did find:

Co Font (maybe a little to soft but a very nice font)

Kaliber (a bit farther away from Bauhaus but a 'sturdy' type)

Distilla

But more suggestions are stil welcome. Like a said before. It is important the font has no spur or serif. It doesn't need to be completly round like the Bauhaus but it musn't look to techno

Here are the original "spurless" humanist sans serifs:

FF Cocon
FF Max
FF Sari
FF Dax and the improvement: FF Daxline

FF Cocon and FF Max are nice. Thanks Stephen.

What do you mean with 'the original'?

Appearing in 1995, [[FF Dax]] is particularly considered the originator of the trend.
