    "The Crow" End Credits Font?

    OK, but did he say they used a font for the titles, or did they order them from outside?

    "The Crow" End Credits Font?

    I didn’t find an exact match either, just several similar designs, in addition to those already suggested by @Kevin Thompson, some more in spirit than in shapes. Here’s a few: Modula Tall Gothiks Compressed Facunda I also discovered that the alphabet showed by @Ignacio, which seems related to Huxley Vertical, has been digitised at least twice other than by Jonathan Hoefler with Chrysler: by Jeff Levine with Hagemann (complete with the crazy 4-shaped |Y|) and by Character with Varicka.

    Actually, after looking for it in Google Images, looks like it could be Chrysler HTF Ultra Compressed with the crossbar modified, it has the same Y. But I think that the original spark is that Typeface with no name.

    Hi there, I have found this alphabet in the picture in page 59 of the book Lettering and Alphabets: 85 Complete Alphabets by J. Albert Cavanagh. If you erase the left part of the crossbar in some cases, and change that “Y” (no wonder) by a modified X... I think you would have it. Sorry but there is no name for this type in the book, which first edition was in 1946. No idea if there is a digitized version but that Chrysler font that Kevin said look very very similar to this one but no so condensed.

    You’re welcome. Too bad Pottery Barn is selling such a bad rip-off of a copyrighted work....

  9. Hi Kevin, Thank you so much for taking the time to respond. I agree about them probably being able to put me in touch with the original designer. I stopped in to have lunch and I was wearing a sweatshirt I designed for the Northern California - Paradise, CA Camp Fire, and one of the staff complimented it. I mentioned that I made it and owned a local T-shirt company. She mentioned that they were looking for someone to do shirts for them and then ran and got the manager. Apparently the manager was new and said she wasn’t able to locate the original design. Maybe a little more pressure on my end to see if she can put me in touch with the original designer will work. At any rate, I really appreciate your feedback and so happy to have stumbled across the forum. Kind Regards, Bill Moore, Owner Moore Tees

    Actually, it is a distorted/recolored/poor reproduction of a vintage Carl Moos poster. All the type on the original was hand lettered, not typeset. Penumbra Half Serif would be a decent option for St. Moritz, if you don’t mind a slope-sided M. Beaufort and ITC Symbol are two additional options. None are very good for ENGADIN 1856m. Cenotaph Titling, Placid Armor, or Spice might work a bit better for everything.
  12. Looking for the font on this vintage style St. Moritz ski poster inspired from similar posters from the 1930s. https://www.potterybarn.com/products/framed-alpine-vintage-ski-poster-st-moritz-wall-art/ I appreciate any help that you can give me! Thank you!!
  13. A bit suspicious that they can’t provide an electronic file, given that a variation of it appears on their menu. Surely they could put you in contact with the original designer? It’s Black No. 7. The drop shadow and arc effect are custom additions.

    "The Crow" End Credits Font?

    Yes, these letters were taken from Blu-Ray captures of the film's ending credits; the only letter I couldn't get was a Q. I contacted the guy who actually did the titles back in '94, but he said the company he worked for no longer exists. I've thought of trying to recreate a font myself, based on these captures, but I don't have the right software.

  16. I recently was asked by the owner of the Steamboat Landing eatery in the Sacramento Delta to recreate the text from their logo for their shirt designs. Unfortunately, the current manager is not able to locate any previous electronic files that include the text. I'm hoping someone can help me identify the font (or something very close) for the text "Steamboat & Landing." Many advanced thanks! http://thesteamboatlanding.com
  17. OMG guyss!! I can't express my gratitude enough. This is my first time on the forum and It already paid off greatly. Thank you a lot.
  18. The sans serif used in the second image is Sackers Gothic Heavy (using mostly lowercase / small caps glyphs). The Carven logo itself is a customization of the same face. The first image appears to be using Avenir Roman.
  19. The pre-Fall collection could be either Cera or Avenir or one amongst several other very similar fonts.
  20. Hi guys, Firstly, thanks so much for your help. I'm so clueless. I came across this instagram and I got hooked on their fonts used for the Graphic Design. There are 2 fonts I'm currently looking for, I will attach the photos below. Here is the link to their Instagram. I'm looking for the exact fonts (because they look soo good). I have done my research and come up with a few similar fonts (but not quite close). If there is a free download then It would be amazing. Thank you again. Hope to hear from you guys soon.

    "The Crow" End Credits Font?

    This is from the movie released in 1994? Whatever it was, it doesn’t appear to have survived into this century. Similar: Triborough JNL and Wingate JNL Also similar, a 1991 typeface by Hoefler & Co. called Chrysler HTF Ultra Compressed, which is now only available on pirated font sites....

    Help me find something close to this drawn font

    Hi the K is similar in shape to Mayak
  26. Hey all, So a friend of mine wants a new logo with some text. He has drawn a logo example, with two words. I want to see if there is a free (preferable) or paid font that comes close to what you see in this handdrawn pic. This way i can use it on the website as well. I hope you can help me find something that captures this look and feel. There are two different words, so 2 different fonts. Thanks in advance for your time and effort!
