    Looking for this Mercury motor decal font

    I doubt you will find an exact digital match. It was a style very popular among car makers and sci-fi movie posters alike (the most influential original design being perhaps China), but I think this particular variation is a proprietary typeface based on the original logo.
  11. You could approximate “SE” with Ghost Clan.
  12. Hi all, I'm trying to determine which font was used for the lettering on this Mercury outboard motor decal. The boat was made in the late 90's. If it was just the word "Mercury" I might think it was customized text, but the line below it is the same style ("Electronic Fuel Injection"). It has similarities to Eurostile, Hemi Head, Dodger and Otomo. None are quite right though. I'm including a clearer picture of a reproduction decal made for a different boat from the same era. I've tried cropping it and using it for the online font identifiers with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

  16. Hello, I am looking for the fonts that this packet of chips. The words concerned are: - natur & bon - Chips de lentilles - Basilic - Fabriqué en France Thanks for your help
  17. (Artificially slanted) Handel Gothic for pretty much everything except the city names and the first “INC.”, which is set in some version of Serpentine. download at MyFonts As for “SE”, I suspect it is custom, possibly starting with Handel Gothic and using a |L| to construct the |E| (or some versions of Handel Gothic could already have such alternate |E|).
  18. Looking for the font used on Scelzi Enterprises and the SE Inc.

    Fractional sizes for font and leading?

    I’ll agree here. Good design includes using appropriate type at appropriate sizes, with appropriate line spacing, column width, etc. And by “appropriate” I mean of course for readability by your intended audience/readership. No one (except nerds like us) notices the grid behind your layout. I confess, I often tend to choose traditional metal-type sizes to start with (I also go back that far), but fine-tuning usually takes me away from that old habit. I’ll confess again, discovering type that has been set at 9.675 point, for example, makes me cringe, but if that’s what works, there’s no rational reason to say no.

    Looking for Helvetica advertisements

    Here’s how the Haas type foundry announced their Neue Haas Grotesk in Gebrauchsgraphik in June 1958 (image courtesy of IAADB), one year before the typeface was renamed to Helvetica. In retrospect, the defensive wording is amusing: “Grotesks continue to occupy an important position”, “please compare it to other, similar grotesks.” Note the prophetic Latin phrase, which translates to “Whatever you do, do it wisely and consider the end” (quidquid is missing a d).

    The article argues that they “should be built for real”. I’m not sure about that, but I can easily see them in some film or television opening titles.

    This young guy did some beautiful creative typography. What a lovely talent. For me he was an unknown who died far too early. https://blog.8faces.com/post/136876631916/aronjancso1986-2015
