The Eurostile typeface was designed by Italian Type designer Aldo Novarese in 1962 and its safe to say that since then it’s really been overused.
Unlike certain fonts (say comic sans for example), Eurostile was not overused unnecessarily or incorrectly, it was just one of those fonts that tended to sit well on any given project.
It had a friendly face, modern, a little techie but it didn’t enthuse too much of any particular character making it a subtle and classy font fitting for most jobs. I personally used Eurostile for around 7 years on my old logo design so it’s pretty bias of me to say that Eurostile is in my top ten list of great typefaces.
The problem though is that I started seeing Eurostile everywhere so it was time to seek out some alternatives. This proved to be a hard task as no font seemed to be as subtle as Eurostile was but none the less below is a list of great fonts that can be used as an alternative to Eurostile.
