I ran this through automatic font recognizer stuff a few times and it never gave me what I was looking for, the "e" was never the same and the notch at the "n" was different...

Any ideas?


Appreciate it!

It may very well be part of the character set already the Omega symbol can be found in a lot of typefaces by pressing Option-Z.

If not, it's part of the character set for "Symbol", which should be installed as part of your default font set.

Cheers!

I'm pretty sure that shirt has been featured somewhere before as part of a font request it's a heavy version of Franklin Gothic.

Please Help Name This Font

I'm working on wedding invitations for my brother's wedding, and his fiancee told me that she really likes this font and would like me to mock up a treatment using it -- anyone have any ideas as to what font it may be, or even a similar one?

Thanks a ton.

Looks like a member of the Player family to me, with a bit of extra outline.

eyeon – I'm pretty sure that the lettering on the Rumours cover was hand done, but there must be a similar typeface available.

What font is this?

Hey guys!

I found this forum by accident...it's looking very interesting so I'm bound to post more after this I'm not a troll, honest!

Anyway, I want to know what font they used for this magazine cover of Mob Candy: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4.../mob-candy.jpg. I'm drawing a blank, obviously. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I believe it's referred to as "Tacky". I could be wrong though.

Okay, I am no designer or something like that so you'll probably laugh at me - but as I just found this thread and am curious: Which font is it often used in American (paperback?) novels? Have a look for exemplare here:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/sitbv3/read...sin=0340952733

(click to read the following pages ...)

Sorry again for the probably dumb sounding question, but would like to get this for typing textes in Word ... Thanks in advance!!

That example looks like straight Times to me.

That Rainmakers album is quite splendid, by the way, but not as good as its follow-up, "Tornado", IMHO.

Cheers!

Thanks for the hint, Jim!! I just tried the Word "Times" and it doesn't look nearly as "cool", but I will have some more tries with this font ...

Word, I'm afraid, does not display fonts in their best light, particularly if you're using it on a Windows machine. Fire up a DTP app like Quark or InDesign (one of which was most certainly used to set the type in your sample) and you'll see that the body text is most definitely Times.

Unless -- I've just thought -- you're talking about the font used for the headings, which isn't Times ...

Cheers!

Jim

The Fleetwood Mac is undoubtedly hand customized, the base of it may be one of the '20s style "Great Gatsby / Parisian / Deco " style fonts

Schneidler Initials isn't quite it, but it has some of the flavour

Cameo RR

Canterbury Old Style

Swaak Centennial

Looks like Microgramma - I'd say MicrogrammaDMedExt. One of my favourites, I might add.

Cheers!
