    Term for cursive "r" used in America?

    In old, handwritten manuscripts, the lowercase r existed in various forms, depending on whether it started or ended a word and the letters to which it connected. The Palmer Method (late 19th/early 20th century) of teaching handwriting in the US taught both styles (as is still the case in many other countries), but when it was supplanted by the Zaner-Bloser method in the 1950s and the D'Nealian method in the 1970s, only the bottom-connecting style of r survived. My parents were taught the Palmer Method, I was taught Zaner-Bloser. I’ve always thought of the two styles as top- or middle-connecting and bottom-connecting, but there doesn’t seem to be a formal name for them.

    Term for cursive "r" used in America?

    I doubt it has a specific name. And, even if it indeed has one, I can’t think of a mean to exclude it from searches, except for looking at it, the same way it isn’t possible to exclude fonts with, for example, single-storey |a| or binocular |g|. Keep also in mind that some typefaces could offer both versions, one as default, the other as alternate.

    Not finding a match either. I even straightened it out and searched on that version, with no luck. Sunday Clarendon Bold Italic is similar (just stretch it out a bit and maybe add a stroke to beef it up).

    Term for cursive "r" used in America?

    In Australia, this form of writing the letter "r" is virtually non-existent. When I'm looking to buy a font I want to be able to exclude font's that use this style of "r" ... ... but I have no idea what the term is to describe it? I have attached an example of the word "stroke" that uses this type of "r" Thank you for any help - I have been driving myself "nuts" trying to Google this!

    Looking for font used by youth ice hockey team

    I didn’t find a perfect match either, and I suspect that, if not completely custom draw, it is at least modified in some way. The closest I did found would be an artificially slanted Egyptienne with an uncurled leg of |R|, but as far as I can gather, Egyptienne only comes in Condensed or Extended widths. download at MyFonts download at MyFonts The only typeface in the Clarendon/Ionic style I could find with a similar |R| isn’t bold enough (among other differences). download at MyFonts

  11. I am looking for the attached font. It is used by a youth ice hockey team for the past 3-4 years. It looks close to Engine company oblique but the E is missing a middle serif. I have searched for something close to this/that but can't so I came to the experts!

    Looking for font used by local village (Garden City)

    Just wanted to say thank you for the help this was close enough for my needs, this can be closed!!
  13. Of course it will also depend on the user interface offered by the software (I know, not the best track record overall in this regard). I imagine that the |I| and |B| buttons in Office or in the various WYSIWYG (web) text editors will not go away anytime soon, and the sliders could be added as an optional “expert” feature. So it will be up to type designers to offer sensible instances for those (and also BI, of course). Same should go for optical sizes, for example. Also for the “just a few styles” versus “a variable font with everything in it”, I don’t think they are mutually exclusive: both would be “variable” fonts, one with few fixed instances, and the other with the full range of possibilities. Ideally one could pick just the features they want, along the lines of what you can now do with Input or Universal Sans.
  14. But do the majority of font users even want it? Opinions vary on why Multiple Master with a similar concept failed, but in my opinion a part of it was that sliders instead of dedicated styles might actually provide more choice than people actually want to deal with. When I look at my foundry sales statistics, a large percentage is people not buying families, but just a few styles they need. So unless I force them to buy a variable font with everything in it, many font users might still rather go for font styles as individual files.

  17. Hey guys, you all helped me so much last time, so I wanted to try putting this font out there that I have struggled to find for a few months too. This is used in a WWE entrance graphic and is themed sort of mystical, scary, and carnival-esque. The text says "SHAX" and usually the fonts they use are found on dafont, 1001fonts, or occasionally on the creative market. The grunge on it is not part of the font, but the animation used in this graphic, so please ignore. I appreciate any and all help! Thanks!

    New font of Star Gold in use since February 2020

    As a matter of fact I’d written that line on Logopedia myself! However it is only an assumption, and the fonts are by no means the same. Notice the words ‘appears to be’ there. The font does have a lot of Gotham, Proxima Nova and Gilroy in it, while the lowercase, especially that single-storeyed ‘a’ and double-storeyed ‘g’, is reminiscent of Tarzana.

    New font of Star Gold in use since February 2020

    Very similar to Gotham and Montserrat, but not a full-on match to either. According to this article, it is a custom version of Now.
  20. You guys are AMAZING. Seriously- I appreciate you SO much. Its so odd to me that they mix matched stuff, which is why its been SO difficult to identify. Thank you!!
  21. This month the Indian Hindi movie channel Star Gold changed its look after 8 years, and along with the new graphics package comes a new font. Now it would be one thing if the channel simply used Futura PT Bold (as seen in the logo wordmark), which is fairly universal, but the truth is anything but. This font is nothing like what I have seen before, and the closest match (via Identifont) is Now by Hanken Type. Unfortunately it is not the same. The double-storeyed lowercase ‘g’ seems to throw font identification software off the track. All images are screenshots of YouTube videos showing the new graphics package. I have attached a large number, because the more the merrier in this case. I will really appreciate it if you can tell me if Star Gold is indeed using a commercial font here, or if this is a custom font, in which case it will of course be a pity that the font will not be used outside of the channel. For comparison: the new logos, which do not use the new font: Sources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpnOv0Z8Y5c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V29F9sFQTY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UHbwucnwHQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvlULl7YY6M
  22. Trying to identify the font used in BTS - "Map of the soul" and "7". I can't seem to find the exact font used in these. Link for further reference https://ibighit.com/bts/eng/ Would appreciate if you could help me find the original font or alternatives are okay as well. Thank you in advance!

    @Ralf Herrmann Hi Ralf, I'm looking for something similar 🙂

    need help identifying "BOTEAGA" logo font

    It’s a logo and not just typeset. Do you like the style and look for something similar? Or what is the goal?

  28. Lamplighter was certainly used. download at MyFonts
  29. Sorry, still not finding a match. Only finding similar—Lamplighter, by Font Diner. It is so similar for some letters (certain capitals) that I suspect it might be another Font Diner face that has since dropped off the market, or a knock-off that has since disappeared.
