Looking for a nice and warm sans-serif
0

Hello,

For my study application which includes a portfolio of my best work I am looking for a nice sans-serif.

Firstly, I thought it has to be a neutral typeface just like Helvetica and so on, so that it fits to my photography work
as good as to my futuristic poster (just to give an example).
But I felt that I want a typeface which has more personality, wich has a (subtle) nice, warm and friendly feeling without being too decorative.

One typeface I have found is Pluto Sans. It looks nice to me, but the description reads that its best used for screens
(http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/hvdfonts/pluto-sans/). So, would you suggest me to use it for print?

Also, if you have any other suggestions I like to hear them.

Kindly regards,
Dennis

If you want warm but sober, look at Legato. It also happens to be extremely readable, and culturally progressive.

I am a fan of Bliss,

but Fenland looks a characterful typeface

or Swagg, but I am not too convinced by its lowercase R.
