Hello poeple... I´m wondering if there is an exixting font for NOKIA logo, this font is also used in numbers of the cellphones and titles on their webpage and manuals
thank you allll
Erik Spiekermann designed the corporate typeface for Nokia. You can see examples on this site: United Designers Network.
The typeface for the logo is very close to Eurostile Bold Extended (aka Microgramma Bold Extended, Square 721 Bold Extended).
Nokia uses different fonts for the log ("NOKIA Logo") and for cell phones ("NOKIA Sans" & "NOKIA Sans Wide").
where can I buy NOKIA SANS WIDE and NOKIA SANS? I'm working on a job for them and they'r enot providing the fonts.
You can't purchase licenses for those fonts. That's the whole point of proprietary fonts -- they're exclusive and thus unavailable to the general audience.
install the nokia pc suite on a windows box and the fonts Nokia Sans Wide and Nokia Standard Multiscript get installed in your TEMP folder. I use it all over my computer(s) at the moment be it win, lin, or mac. Great for screen (even in 6pt) not so great on paper.
A quick Google of "Nokia Font" reveals this, very imcomplete, freeware thing, which has (what I can only assume is a fanmade approximation of) the caps used for the Nokia logotype.
I have used the Prisoner SF typeface to mimic NOKIA. It's pretty close for most purposes.
