Name That Font!

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am new to this site and have found your information to be very useful. I am in need of some serious help. I am looking for an inexpensive program that has/lists all of the MLB jersey fonts (I need the #s and letters and colors so that I can make my own jerseys). Can anyone point me in the right direction PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE? Or if someone has a free list somewhere or can tell me the fonts used for MLB teams

I'm new to the world of fonts, so can someone please help me identify these fonts?

Tennessee Volunteers Football - Numbers and Letters please

I realize these may be custom. If they are, can you please point me in the direction of something similar. Thanks in advance!

Thank you very much. Sorry to be a pain, but do you know of any site or list that has the exact colors used on the jersey #s and letters?

Anyone else want to help this :censored: produce contraband jerseys?

Jesus... I thought you guys were smarter than that.

If you're familiar with the work of Michael Schwab, whom I consider to be among the best graphic artists of the modern era, then you're familiar with this lettering; he uses it on 80% of his work. Before it was practical to make custom digital fonts, Schwab lettered all his work by hand. After scrutinizing and comparing the lettering in many of his most recent pieces, I have come to the conclusion that some of his lettering is now done digitally.

I'm wondering if his signature lettering is available commercially or not. The closest font I've been able to locate thus far is called NEUTRAFACE TITLING, by House Industries (www.houseind.com). That font is based on work by the architect Richard Neutra. The styles of the letterforms are very similar, with Schwab's letterforms obviously being less rigid and geometric because of their hand-drawn heritage, but they are not exact, just very close.

Here is Schwab's lettering, for reference. I see that it has a name and platform information at the bottom, but I have no idea where to find that, if it's even available to the public. I've exhausted my search options.

Looking for either one of two things (or both...)

As I am looking to recreate the Wordmark "Lighting McQueen" from the Disney's Cars movie's Hauler pictured below, I would like a better picture and/or the Font used.

It looks like a fairly standard font, but there is a slant and a different weight/leading, etc. (the "L" obviously uses a different baseline...)

In any case, any help would be appreciated.

The Lightning McQueen logo looks like it was set in Compacta then modified.

Thanks!

I'll have fun tonight trying to modify Type in Photoshop.

(I usually use PSP, but use Photoshop for the more complicated tasks)
