Name That Font!

Recommended Posts

Sorry Nick, I don't give away company assets for free. Besides, it's a violation of the EULA.

There are plenty of cheap OCR fonts available, many for less than 20 bucks. Here's one list:

thanks, however I probably should have checked my font library first, seeing as I found one that matches. thanks for the help.

After playing around a bit, I think I know what it is.

It's Univers Extra Black Oblique, with horizontal scale set to 150%, and a Shear transform of 10% applied for a bit more slant than the normal italicization provides.

Wilson, I think that is actually Dom Casual Bold, and judging by the image it's vertical scale is 75% or something... unless the image itself is distorted.

My earlier guess at DC's font inquiry of Univers Extra Bold Oblique is close, but no cigar on further review. I just noticed the numeral 2 on his other sample, and the lower curve looks more like Helvetica than Univers - unless the designer used Univers for letters and Helvetica for numerals... doubtful. My Univers suggestion would be a reasonable facsimile though.

Yo, Lil (version 4)

You might want to slow down a little.. try to help out figuring out fonts, instead of asking all the Qs

Syphi gave me the name of this font a few months ago, but forgot what it was.

Nobody knows?

Close or not, i'll take it. I'm not really going to use the numbers anyways.

So anyone know where I can get it for free??

I think "Spartans" is a modified version of Compacta, but I don't know any serifed fonts offhand that look like this.

Serpentine is used for "UNC Greensboro"

I am looking for the name of the typeface used for the following:

Cincinnati Bengals' numerals and nameplates

The University of Arizona Mens' Basketball numerals

Kohl's "15% Savings for using Kohl's Card" campaign

The closest I have found using all the search technology know of is the Noga family.

As you can see, it's not exactly the same as the typeface shown in the images below. The tell-tale character will be the "1" as it has that unique serif. I need to buy this typeface, but I first need to know the name of it.

Bengals (names and numerals)

Arizona (numerals)

Kohl's (the green headline text)
