font alternatives

Alternative to TS Torque

hey everyone,

this board has been incredibly helpful to so many past requests, so I’m really looking forward to your replies!

I’m currently working for a client and I am looking for a squarish typeface with rounded edges. So far I am rather pleased with typesupply's »Torque« – however it’s lacking a semibold between medium and bold – the bold face is a little to heavy for this design that we're aiming for.

I’m having a hard time finding proper alternatives to torque, because it is very specific, so I was hoping maybe one of you folks knows a similar typeface?

thank you in advance!

Advice on font choice


First I want to say hello. This is my first post here and I have to admit that I'm actually not at all a pro when it comes to typography, but I have a question where I think input from typophiles would really help me make a design decision.

I am currently developing an iOS toy app. Now, near the end I've let a couple of friends test it and one of my friends' feedback was that he absolutely hated the font I used for my captions. I was using Cochin-BoldItalic until now and personally liked it, But since his feedback was so harsh I'm now unsure about it. A graphics artist friend of mine suggested using a font without serifs, so now I'm thinking about using HelveticaNeue-Light or its italic version. That's also the font I use for normal text.
