What is the font used on the back of Porsche cars? Is it an individual design, or is it actually a font? take a look at http://evula.org/macunderground/carrera.jpg Thanks a bunch.
Farily certain that is a cutom job. Porsche has a fairly extensive design group.
It is like the person who asked what font was used for Brother Bears movie by Disney. Disney makes theme park rides from their movies. They can afford to hire a designer to create a unique look that they can market and sell. The same is true for any big auto manufacturer or any other entertainment company.
Dan -- Unfortunatly, NOT all of them do. Hildebrant.
Well, I was wondering - since, after all, they use the exact same style of writing on the Boxster, Carerra and Cayenne. Thanks anyway. I guess I'll have to try my own hand.
you find the logo? if yes, download at: http://logo.nino.ru/main/?id=49018&query_id=29875&page=1
>>It is like the person who asked what font was used for Brother Bears movie by Disney... btw, the Brother Bear font might just be slightly modified Glasgow... Mike or Mike might know more about FontForest. http://www.will-harris.com/store-fontforest.htm
Yeah, BJ, I pointed the MyFonts inquirer to Glasgow as a close substitute two days ago. No reply. Here is the Font Forest website. I don't think it's changed in many years and the 'Order' links are to to defunct sources.
I think Porshe can afford to have custom logos made... I'm affraid this is not a font, Echoboom.
> Well, I was wondering - since, after all, they use the exact same style of writing on the Boxster, Carerra and Cayenne. Well, they probably had a custom typeface made, not the separate logos. Here's a nice example of another automobile company who commissioned such a typeface.
