    Headline should be a version of Clarendon. Not sure from which maker. download at MyFonts The rest maybe Univers? download at MyFonts
  5. I am trying to ID the fonts used on this trail sign for the "Giant Mountain Wilderness Area" text and the lighter font used below that for the trail names and mileages. My guess is that the sign was made within the last 20 years. I am open to free and paid options for these. Thank you in advance, Joe

    Thank you Patrons! 🙇‍♂️

    Yesterday was #ThankYouPatrons day on Patreon and for that occasion I made a little video. Thank you @George Thomas, @Ronaldo Eggert, @Przemysław Sakrajda, @Chris Lozos and @Judy Dworschak for your financial support of the Typography.Guru platform! And sorry, Przemysław for not having a single letterpress font with a “ł” in the museum. 🙈 The exclusive content is available in the Patron Forum: https://typography.guru/forums/forum/48-patron-forum/ Don’t forget to check it out. There are font downloads, videos and articles. We still haven’t reached our goal for this year to pay for the server and software costs. So any additional support is welcome.

    It is Thick and Thin Serif, by Tom Kennedy.

  10. I am trying to identify the heading font on the attached image from the Double RL section of Ralph Lauren's website - the bit that reads LIMITED EDITION JACKET - before it was distressed. The closest suggestion from the font matching sites was Chuck Noon Regular - but that's much less refined and the M is nothing like that in the image.

    So, my personal favour is "mind your q & q's!" which is a reference to not using bad language. Old school I know. What it actually is about is the compositor telling the poor soul who had to refill the cases with the sorts once finished with. Now, a lowercase p or q could easily be mismatched because they are essentially mirror images so the possibility of putting a p sort in the q area and vice-versa. So out of frustration the comqositor would get frustrated and say "mind your p & q's".
  12. Yes great suggestion thanks George!
  13. Ciutadella is very close, including the numbers. https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/emtype/ciutadella/

  15. Apologies I wasn't very clear. I need to make a new sign with a different name, made up of 9 characters. So want to base it on a sans font similar to the 'faces' of these 3D letters. Any good match suggestions welcome. We particularly like the G. The sign fabricators will extrude the font I supply.
  16. Probably faster to redraw than finding alternatives.
  17. Any tips on a similar sans serif font I could use to re create this sign? I'll extrude in the same way the sign has been made. Thank you 🙂

  20. Hi there! Online identificartors gave me some awful results. Can you help me with this one? Do you think it may be customized? https://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_for_the_hundred.php The website has it as "hundred-ball", but it might be just a rename. https://www.thehundred.com/ Thanks!
  21. Berthold Barmeno: https://www.bertholdtypes.com/font/barmeno/pro/ A redesign worth considering would be FF Sari: https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/fontfont/ff-sari/ download at MyFonts
  22. Hello. I'm looking for this font used in this geography textbook called "The blue marble: an introduction to geography". https://books.google.com.au/books?id=GpoY-YvCNg8C&lpg=PP1&pg=PP1#v=onepage&q&f=false Thank you

    Capital Sharp S designs. The good, the bad and the ugly.

    For the record, here's my take on the matter. The form I propose is essentially to Dresden what Zehlendorf is to Leipzig. I like to use the name Zürich for it, but it's not in widespread use yet. 😉
  24. Ah now it makes perfect sense. I only have HLF Elixir and couldn't work out for the life in me, why those glyphs were missing. Actually now I see Emporium is slightly lighter in weight also. Well done Riccardo.
