I was justt wondering, after seeing another thread being answered if you intelligent bunch would be able to identify this font and where it can be downloaded.

Thanks

Off the top of my head, VAG Rounded or Helvetica Rounded

VAG Rounded was the font developed for Volkswagen and used for VW Beetle ads for years.

They are available for purchase from Adobe (and the usual online sellers), I am unaware of non-commercial knockoffs.

It's very similar to, but not quite, Arial Rounded MT Bold.

Differences in the lowercase 'a', the 'r' and the 't'

Looks like Futura Round.

This is a copyrighted font and should be purchased. Please don't ask for illegal copies, links or assistance with pirating copyrighted material on these forums.

BTW, I adore innocent smoothies. :)

It's not Helvetica Rounded, the lower-case 'a' is different.

Futura Round -- much closer - but I think our smoothie here has a bigger x-height.

I'm still liking VAG Rounded Bold
here (http://www.faces.co.uk/fonts/fontview.cfm?productsku=MT006817OPN)

Or one of the variants (http://www.faces.co.uk/fonts/fontfind.cfm?Function=Fonts&Search=VAG&Submit=FIND)

Me too. :)

That lowercase 'g' is quite idiosyncratic. Pity there's only one cap in the sample given... sometimes it's easier to identify by uppercase letterforms.

And no descenders in it at all... boo.

Like CanadaRam, my first reaction when I saw it was VAG Rounded. I've compared it against the version we've got here at work and it is indeed VAG Rounded Bold.

VAG Rounded.... jesus people, have you all no taste? :eek: :p

I tell you all something, it's lucky I ain't a mod, 'cos I'd ban you all for a day so you could all sit and contemplate such a horrific mass error of judgement. hahahahahaha.

Speaking of ID fonts, I nailed my first ID on Typophile the other day, :D very proud of myself :D Just incase anyone was wondering what face it was, t'was Ito Regular E. ;)
