I have posted this font on another forum several times, nobody knows it... Lets see how good you guys are! Warick....
Yves? Are you sleeping? Chesh? Stephen? I can't find it. Koloss was my first thought, but it isn't close enough. Unless you can change several characters.
Could it be a modified (extended or horizontally stretched) Radiant? http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/radiant-ef/radiant-display-condensed-no1/ David
Boy, I'm stumped. I'm guessing it isn't available digitally, like it's only a sign-painter's font. Maybe it's in one of Dan Solo's books? Also, he recently released digital versions of his fonts. Take a look at the Typographica post on the subject.
No, it's not any sort of Radiant modification. The characters in the sample have slightly rounded edges, and the G is very different from Radiant.
The nearest I have found is Gothic, but that is only close
It looks to me to be a sign painter's hand variant of one of the above. I don't know if you will match it exactly. Possibly something at LetterHead Fonts might be close. May even want to consult with them on this one!
This one bugged me, so I did some experimentation with E+F Radiant Display Condensed No. 1. There is so many versions of Radiant out there, there might be a better match, but its close enough to close the case in my opinion. Scaled 70 % on the horizontal and with some extra outline/fatness and rounded corners. Voil
The font was "cut" by a signwriter, using signblazer.... And as far as I know, not modified, the original graphic was a photopraph, touched up a little for clarity..
Warick, made this quickie unicase Koloss imitator... I think Ola is right on... This version is... Solely for fun/personal use... bj
where do I find "radiant" ?
Jesus... Yves, where can I find gold/US$? Not bad for a married designer
Hi Tiff, I saw the thread but couldn't find anything yet. What, didn't you hear my brain cells snap, crackle and pop? =D

Here's the gold. About the US$: I'm afraid you'll have to cough up a lot of those to get that gold. Sorryabouthat. =D
