Name That Font!

Recommended Posts

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)

I think that's one of the Engschrift or Mittelschrift families. Not many are available for free, but I think I did find one of them once. PM me if you want me to e-mail it to you.

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone could help me in identifying the fonts in the following pictures that appear on the blue jerseys...It appears to be a popular font among high schools these days....

Thanks in advance,

Mike

Sorry to have to come on here and beg for help, but I'm having trouble finding a freeware version of the Doom (or something reasonable close) font. I found freeware Doom font, but it was totally different. Any assistance would be appreciated. This is not for commercial use.

Can anyone name this font ?

I'd say that was House Gothic Condensed, with a few manual tweaks - and envelope distortion of course.

Not too many slab serif fonts I can think of like that. You might want to start out with Berthold City Medium, then modify it from there. Maybe even Helvetica Compressed, and lessen the curves in it.

I am looking for the font, Arizona uses for their wordmark in red here. If its a custom, then does anyone have the wordmark already in vector form?

Your help is appreciated!!!

Only the "R" is really custom, and the joined letters would have to be done manually, of course, but yes, pretty much anything having to do with the U of A will be Friz Quadrata, and no, it's not free.

Anticlaire Display SSi and Fritz are two closely related font options, but would still require lots of tweaking to recreate the UA workmark above.

Does anyone know which font they use for NHL on NBC? Too bad I couldn't find a pic of that one...just saw it on TV. I'll try to find one, but maybe someone already knows....

Thx

Do you mean for the NHL on NBC logo, or the font for all other graphics?

NBC Sports uses Interstate for its graphics, mostly Interstate Bold Condensed. A freeware version is called Blue Highway, but it has nowhere near the amount of variations as the true version of Interstate has.

Actually, for free fonts resembling Interstate, Clearview, and DIN 1451, the RoadGeek versions are difficult to beat, and they have all the weight and style variations as well.
