Acne Studios type

Hello type ID geniuses!

Could anyone help me out with this one, I can't seem to figure it out... I think it might be something fairly new though because it definitely fits in with some other typefaces that currently seem pretty popular.

Thanks!!!

Can't find a match. That might be a custom job by Acné Studios itself though. Would really like to find it out. Do you have the exact origin of this sample? I'd like to dig around, finding may be a flash file or webfont...

Yes. I would like to know what this is as well.
I found a video link but nothing on the website.

Right, it´s custom. It is called Acne Studios Circle Bold. Got the information from the website´s source code.

Does anyone know if it is based on a commercial font?

The character set in Acne Studios Circle Bold does not match the titling in the Grand Palais videos. At least the G and 4 are different.


Presumably the video font is another custom font developed for Acne Studios by Letters from Sweden, most likely by Göran Söderström.

The typeface is exclusively designed for Acne Studios. It’s a collaboration between Acne Studios and me. Letters from Sweden is my type foundry where I do all my type work, both custom and retail.

There is some more samples of the Acne Studios typeface here:
