Complimentary Sans for Matthew Carter's Ionic?

Hi all,

I am using Ionic (Matthew Carter) Clarendon-esque font for my freelance design company's logotype, and would love it if anyone had any suggestions as what to use as a sans-serif to compliment it?

Main applications will be stationery, business cards, letterheads, invoice, etc.

Would appreciate any thoughts!

Thanks in advance.

A grotesque would be a safe choice or maybe DIN.

Din is looking pretty sharp, I did have it in Helvetica Neue but the uprightness/less extended-ness of Din seems to suit Ionic better in contrast. Thanks!
