I'm working on designing some badges and am looking for a nice, condensed, but readable font.
I usually use Helvetica-Condensed, but for this project I need type that is smaller than 9pt. Helvetica has the disadvantages of very closed letters, very static, similar forms, and very tight spacing.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a free font I could use?
Also, maybe your favorite condensed fonts that look good at 7pt, 8pt and 9pt.
