I love this CD cover. Any idea what the type is? Thanks. Rob
Looks pretty similar to FB Herald Gothic that has been smoothed at the corners. If you type "StereoLab alumInum TuneS" in their 'flont' test drive you get the letterforms like the sample.
It looks to me like the kind of thing that could be very easily done from scratch -- also, allowing how old that sample probably is, even if it is a typeface it may not be available in digital form. But trust me, about an hour spent with Illustrator and Dimensions, and you could replicate this precisely. (Much to the chagrin of the original designer, who probably spent days working on it...)
Yves, it is somewhat. But 3DSMAX, still is a better solution ;)
Yves indeed Adobe Dimensions is incorporated into Illustrator CS. I hope LiveMotion gets incorportated into GoLive's next release.
>allowing how old that sample probably is its from '97, i think (big stereolab fan)
Hmm... The proportions look wrong. Also, smoothening the corners wouldn't get you there, as they are cut off at 45
If you're pretty handy in Adobe Illustrator, customizing Yearling could get you halfway there. No positive ID yet tho.
I LOVE Adobe Dimensions It's supposed to have been incorporated in Adobe Illustrator CS innit? I can't wait to try it out.
