I'm currently re-designing an unified layout for my resume, portfolio, business card, and so on.

Until now, I've used Eurostile as my preferred font, but I'd like to switch to another with a free license (at least free for personal use)

What I'm trying to do is to convey the idea of elegant design and technical skill in an architectural context.

I'm non only interested in an open version of this font (although, if someone knows some close alternatives, it would be nice to share), I'm looking for a font that shares its main features: elegant, technical, suitable both for titles and text bodies. Of course it should be sans serif, and, as a bonus, retain the slightly rounded-square appearance of Eurostile (but this is not strictly mandatory, as long as it has a technical and elegant look).

    How about the sans-serif Jura Font family licensed under the SIL Open Font License ? :) – elegent Apr 9 '16 at 23:09

    Just FYI—free for personal use doesn't really cover business cards etc. – Cai Apr 9 '16 at 23:27
  • @elegent Thanks for your suggestion, that font is really awesome. – Sekhemty Apr 13 '16 at 16:32

I've rounded down some alternatives:

  • I'd say you get what you pay for in terms of elegance. There are hardly any free fonts that don't look like free fonts. Especially when printed on paper. – AAGD Oct 20 '17 at 10:22

Arimo is like a more Grotesk version of Eurostile by my judgement

  • How is this any better than the fonts suggested in the other answer? – Luciano Apr 14 '16 at 9:10
  • @Luciano 'Better' is subjective. I'm simply providing an alternative font – binaryfunt Apr 14 '16 at 10:48

    Thanks, but this font looks too much like "your-generic-sans-serif" and is not what I'm really looking for. – Sekhemty Apr 15 '16 at 19:50

I used Michroma:

And in case you want some heavy/extrabold style you might be interested in Montserrat:
