looking for a body font for a poster brochure- clean, modern, sans serif but with a 'cool' edge
0

I am creating a poster brochure aimed at teenagers but still appealing to adults - parents and teachers. I want a body font stylish, modern, with an edge. I've used Univers for one of the headings and the company's logo is in prosper-book.
I want something nice and readible and breezy. I was looking at Optima but it's a bit too old fashioned and I was looking at using univers for the body but I'm sure if its as readible and I'm not sure which weight to use.

Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!

I'm using Euphemia at the moment combined with a free font called Sketchblock which is a bit 'fashionable' but looks ok at the moment.

I'd go with a 'poster' typeface. Think Champion [[http://www.typography.com/fonts/font_overview.php?productLineID=100002|Champion]] , [[http://www.typography.com/fonts/font_overview.php?productLineID=100013|Knockout]] or maybe [[http://typetrust.com/fonts/font.php?id=NjI1|Heroic]]. I'm not sure if that's what you had in mind, but hopefully it'll help.

Maybe if I knew a bit more about the brochure I could suggest some more.

Cool, nice, readable, handsome? If modesty allows, [[http://typophile.com/node/71254|Lapidaria]] is a new face which may fit the bill.
