If you are looking for a regular looking type with just enough quirks to keep your interest, Futura may be your man. It’s actually the precision of the face that provides the quirkiness – the roundness of the O and the sharp points of the V or M are just the graphic feel you may need.

History of Futura:
Commissioned by the Bauer type foundry, Futura was commercially released in 1927. It is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Paul Renner. It is derived from simple geometric forms (near-perfect circles, triangles and squares) and is based on strokes of near-even weight, which are low in contrast. In designing Futura, Renner avoided the decorative, eliminating non-essential elements. The lowercase has tall ascenders, which rise above the cap line. The uppercase characters present proportions similar to those of classical Roman capitals.
