please identify this font
Reminds me of the Chase Manhattan logo which nobody could quite ID
'Ethnocentric', by Ray Larabie
Yes, Larabie whose font you suggested was the basis for Chase.
"Reminds me of the Chase Manhattan logo which nobody could quite ID"
It is not a requirement (or even desirable) to have a logo based on an existing font. Sometimes it even goes the other way round.
A chicken and egg thing? :-)
Oh yes thanks great.
>Yes, Larabie whose font you suggested was the basis for Chase.
Probably not. It's a five-letter (constructed) logotype, probably drawn from scratch. Being a (poorly-served) Chase customer, I have spent a lot of time on queue looking at their new promotional materials, all of which use a handsome sans serif which reminds me a great deal of Jeremy Tankard's work. But the only thing vaguely like the new logo is the new logo. And I must say that I agree with that decision: your logo is your logo, and you shouldn't try to "brand" every word you utter in your logotypeface.
