I'm looking for a digital vision of the shadowed display font I'm attaching: it comes from a Caslon specimen book, and i think it's the same used through last creative review issue
any help really appreciated
Unfortunately, can't spot a perfect match for this one. Closest I have (including 4-line shade effect) is Balboa Shaded by Jim Parkinson but /S is a bit different. More 'Sans Serif Shaded' with a totally off /S: Thorowgood Sans, Ultinoid, Sans Serif Shaded
I guess the best way to reproduce it perfectly might be to consider it as a "condensed woodtype sans-serif with a 4-line shadow affect applied". Some 'condensed woodtype sans-serif' you may find interesting: Directors Gothic (/S a bit off), Classroom JNL, Goshen, Balboa, Toronto Gothic/Railroad Gothic RR (shamefully vertically scaling it...)
thanks a lot for your kind effort
i already came into balboa, sans serif shaded and some of the others that you mention, and they're not bad at all;
but when i saw the display font you can look at here: http://www.creativereview.co.uk/cr-blog/2013/september/cr-october-2013-i...
i said that this was exactly what i was and still am looking for;
i also tried to write the CR ad, but got no answer..
balboa bold shaded and thorowgood are nice, but the caslon font looks much better proportionated and interesting to me: mainly i like the very narrow counters;
anyway, thanks a lot
