    Helvetica Ultra Compressed (different weights)
    Gotham

    The rest look like HFJs offerings, though you can find similar on Font Squirrel.

    Still a very nice typographic find.

    I must say...that's very well done. Bravo to the person created it.

    while a part of me does like the look of this, i have to say that i am officially tired of this particular design trend and the typefaces. what were once "ooh" typefaces "let's use them sparingly" are now "hey, let's make something trendy and use blah condensed italic, blah slab, blah script, blah inline." it's not ugly, it's just overused and i think that in a creative field you'd wanna steer away from looking like everything else. seriously, spend 10 minutes looking around on dribbble and you'll see darn near every one of these fonts used in a similar matter. end rant.

    also, ezekialrage is right, a handful of those are definitely HF&J offerings.

    Great point, actually although very cool it's kind of over done... So many of these styles of type treatment has surfaced over the last year or so, overdone or not it's still pretty cool.

    Also to the OP I'd recommend I Love Typography it does have some rather nice tips for type, font suggestions and for producing similar.

    For the OP, after showing it to a Typonazi friend the fonts are:
    Helvetica Condensed Bold
    Tungsten
    Knockout
    Forza
    Archer (edited)
    Topaz (edited)
    Proteus
    Vitesse
    Buttermilk or Semilla

    Nice concept. Poor execution, it's so busy that it looks both cluttered & conflicted. While I can understand it's appeal to those who are sentimental, the saying doesn't fit the man as he was over the last decade.

    For those living in the past, I would imagine they'd like it.

    I know at least ONE font

    The words "Crazy Ones," "Status Quo" and "Who Do" are in Cyclone. Many thanks to those who correctly identified the font house H&FJ (Hoefler & Frere-Jones) as a likely source.

    The one font I CAN'T figure out is the word "Forward." I'm pretty sure it's an older font that I used once back in the 1980s, but I just can't remember the name!

    "Forward" looks like it's set in Knockout No. 26 by H&F-J (of course) ;)

    Isn't "The crazy ones" a quote by Jack Kerouac, rather than Steve Jobs?
