    Seconding Riccardo’s identification of this as lettering. There are 36 pages of horror-inspired typefaces on Dafont.com—perhaps one of those faces would work for you. Heartless has a similar vibe.

    Almost certainly lettering, not a typeface.

  7. Hey all I'm trying to find the font they use on the Netflix documentary "Don't F** With Cats". It's used when the story moves from location to location. i.e New York, Toronto, etc. I've included a screenshot of what I'm looking for. Hopefully anybody else looking for this font finds this topic! I couldn't find anything in the search results within the forum. Thank you!

  11. Hi, Can anyone recognize the font for Väntänen logo? Thanks in advance,

    answered Genelec Logo font

    Thank you - very interesting! I wonder why it faded into obscurity, since it even seems to have won an award in the 1964 National Typeface Competition.

    hi, anyone have any idea what this font is? I thought of H74 Corpse but it's not. I dont know the source of this font. I got this image from twitter

    Arnholm Sans Medum, which unfortunately has never received a proper (legal) digitization. Opti-Castcraft used to sell a knockoff called Phillip-Medium.

    Hi, Does anybody have a clue about what this font could be? It kind of looks like a hybrid between Optima and Gill Sans. I'm pretty sure the same font was used by Onkyo and Mitsubishi on some of their audio equipment from the 1980s - e.g. on the cassette deck on the photo i've attached - or at least it's very very similar, almost too close to be a coincidence. Here are some further examples that I found on the web of what I believe is the same font: https://www.flickr.com/photos/33729226@N07/8859432533/ (An Onkyo receiver) https://www.flickr.com/photos/21476504@N05/15683451618/ (Another cassette deck) https://flickr.com/photos/leethal_lee/16719378982/ (A slightly blurry shot of a Mitsubishi receiver - just to illustrate how the lowercase looks) Could it be som old, forgotten sans-serif that never got digitized? The strange thing is that i've never seen it used outside of audio equipment. Thank you!

    Actually, 'wit' would be better here, 'gerief' indicates spaces from 6 point up. The 'geriefkast' is a typecase holding spaces and quads from 6 to 36 point. In Germany you've got 'Leiste' to hold those spaces.
  19. Wow, thanks for the info and leads guys!

    That was my conclusion as well, tx for the input.

    Thanks Ralf. Do you happen to know the time in which it was released? ::edit:: Never mind; I found the information on it. Designed by Albert Christoph Auspurg b. Frankfurt am Main, 1868, d. Leipzig, 1943. Ludwig&Mayer: Aristokrat (1912),

    Serif [anatomy]

    I’d say no, because I don’t think descending in the rabbit hole of serifs classification would be especially useful here.

    Same problem for slab-serif?

    Serif [classification]

    Serif is a font classification category, which includes fonts having serifs (i.e. small strokes regularly attached to the end of a larger strokes).

    Aristokrat, which was available from D. Stempel and Ludwig & Mayer.

    Long shot on ID for this eBay item. A very nice looking font of likely German foundry origin, and probably pre-1900. Any helpful information will be very much appreciated.
