answered Name of this Gentleman's Race poster

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm looking for the name of the font used for the word "Gentleman's" or something similar. I was thinking Franklin Gothic or Trade Gothic, but the G and M are different.  

I saw this over DesignInspiration. It seems to be a poster about a bicycle race. I tried to follow up on the website provided there to get more info, but it sent me to a Japanese site. So no luck there. 😞

 

Thanks for your help!

Gill Sans bold condensed - but the apostrophe is from another typeface.

I can’t see how Gill Sans is a match. My first guess was Gotham, but the letterforms in this specific word are so generic, there are sooo many fonts that can be used as an alternative.

Like this: everything close except the apostrophe

But look at the top of the G – not a match. Look at the spine of the S – not a match. 
The apostrophe is a further hint. It’s rather unlikely that it was swapped. Rather it points to the idea, that a different typeface with a matching apostrophe was being used.

Salvador asked for something similar: "I'm looking for the name of the font used for the word "Gentleman's" or something similar". But I agree Gotham is certainly closer.

Both are great! Thank you.

As far as the resemblance of the letterforms, I can see it way clearer in Gotham Extra Narrow, but I think the height of Gill Sans Bold Condensed is what I'd go with. I'll use them both as a reference point. 

 

Thanks again for your help. 🙂
