5 years ago i made this as a part of a jubilee logo.

Now i need to replace the 0 by a 5, but i have no clue what font i used (everything is outlined...)

Anyone have a clue?

Do you by chance have an approval PDF you sent the client? If so, and you hadn't converted to outlines at that point, then it should have the font information in it.

[ETA] If you cannot find it, consider using one of the Latins as a template and draw the five
figure.

Unfortunately not; all first trials are gone, only outlined finals left

Gizzo I have no idea what the font is - but enclosed is a 5 realised from what I imagine it could be based upon the 1 & the 0.

105.eps

Looks great Gecko!

I'll use it for the new proposal, but it irritates me that i just can't find the font ...

The only thing about the /5 that I would modify is the serifs. They are squared off more on the ends than the /1 which will be more noticeable when they are next to each other.

Gizzo George Thomas may have a valid point: the eps file I posted is completely editable in Adobe Illustrator, feel free to tweak away at your discretion to suit your purpose.

Got the name of the font: Labrador by Bright Ideas Fonts.

The foundry has ceased to exist, some of their fonts are still available on various free font sites (dafont e.i.)

A list of fonts can be found here: http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-25927.html

Scaling 150% vertically gives a perfect match.

Thanks all for your input!
