answered 1980 Northwestern University Football Helmet Font

Recommended Posts


Hello, I'm trying to identify this font for a Northwestern University football helmet from 1980. I'd love any suggestions you had! Thank you!

None of these are exact, but they may get you started:

Santa Fe (Letraset), Kaufmann (Adobe) or Swing Bold (Monotype).

You'll find literally 100's of free calligraphic free script typefaces at DaFont.com

The original logo, given the vintage of the helmet, was hand lettered, not a typeface.

In addition to the options Gecko provided... Kestrel Script, with a bit of editing, gets you close.
