  1. ‘Nearly two thirds want a bolder and cleaner typeface’.

    I would love to know what is deemed ‘cleaner’ than Futura Bold Condensed (or very similar). As for ‘bolder’ now that is beginning to get damn scary if that is deemed NOT bold enough. Now Im concerned despite otherwise sympathetic the process.
