Name That Font!

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what the number font is? We've been using it for a long time in football and basketball until the new football jerseys came along. Basketball still uses it though.

Also, does anyone have the football number font in a font format?

Is there any font that even comes close? I know that Handel Gothic comes close for the Oregon wordmark and its a modified version and stuff

The actual wordmark font I believe is called Victory, which club teams can't get a hold of at UO (I did some design work for the UO Hockey team...I was not allowed access to the font), but yes Handel Gothic comes close. You can get close on the basketball numbers with a variation of Swiss, but it's not identical. As for Bellotti Bold, I doubt you'd be able to find it in an actual typeable-font format.

Does anyone know Texas Tech's number and wordmark font on the jersey? Or is it custom?

The wordmark font is pretty close to Serpentine Bold. I would guess City Bold for the numbers based on the picture posted. Can you post pictures of other numbers?

The 2 and 5 remind me of Plumber's Gothic.

It looks like its a combination of fonts because the 2 seems exact and the 5 is close but everything else is different.

Thanks for the help.

EDIT2- I made a quick change to Plumber's Gothic in paint. I think they're closer to the real font now.

Thanks for the help. I hate all of the secrecy with the fonts we use haha

it's not so much about secrecy. Custom-made fonts take quite a lot of time and effort to produce, so they're not often let go of lightly, especially when produced by trademark hogs like Nike.

That's true. I was just hoping for once they didn't use their own font, but I guess they did.
