At my company, we are doing some rebranding and are having some trouble deciding on a font. We want to use a sans-serif, open web font, so we don't have to worry about licensing issues, and would like to use one font with many different variations to make things easier for everyone.
We are down to Roboto and Ubuntu, more leaning towards Ubuntu. Although we do love the readability of Ubuntu, we are not thrilled at how round the font is. During the conversation, we came to the conclusion that we needed something between the two.
I know this is kind of a strange request, but do any of you have ideas for what we could use that has the readability of Ubuntu but distinguished shoulders of Roboto.
If you have never seen these fonts here are some links
http://font.ubuntu.com/ - Ubuntu
and for clarity here are our requirements
- Open web font (free to use)
- Sans Serif
- As many variations and weights as possible
Again, I know this is kind of an abstract question, but after looking through an insane amount of fonts today everything is starting to look the same.
I would appreciate any and all suggestions.
Thanks so much in advance to anyone who tries to help me out.
