In the future, what typeface will have represented 2015?

Designers, type designers, font geeks - I need your help please. In the past, each "era" has had a typeface that came to represent the "spirit" of that era.

What's the best font to use for a readable, 20-page document?

What's the best font to use for an approximately 20-page document? I'm applying for something and I need to send in a summary of the proposed project. I would normally use Times but I'm worried it's too cramped—it's really quite squeezed in there compared to other fonts. Is there a better one with a little more space? I feel like it should be common enough to be found on most machines, as I think the application will go in both electronically and on paper.

CRUNK!!! font

I'm looking for either a font that simulates the logo of the CRUNK!!! energy drink, or a way to fiddle with an existing font in such a way as to emulate it. For reference here is the logo. It'd need the whole alphabet, but punctuation and lower case isn't required.
