You would have to modify the uc and lc "C"
to make it look like your Commerce-image

You don't need a therapist. You need a confessor. :-)

no way! nobody but me has that remix! oh, wait, i think peter bruhn has a copy too. and joshua distler, of course.

But it is rounded in the italic remix. But the uc C doesn't fit. It's very close.

"But it is rounded in the italic remix" The lc "e".

It's so close to Reykjavyk or Sophisto from Psy/Ops...

But it's not a match yet.

Hmmm... no "out of the box" ID, 'm sorry. It looks familiar
though (it's not Apex Sans).

I'm extremely busy for the moment, but I'll get back to you
as soon as I can. Unless someone else finds it before that. ;)


About that subject line: are you making fun of us? Honestly?
Because, if you do, I guarantee we'll make your gnome suffer.
Big time. You'll wake up screaming for the rest of your life,
haunted by sickening sound of broken pottery and the horrible
death rattle of your shiny little friend. We take no $h!t from
gnome-lovers...



:-) (just to be on the safe side)

> i apologize for real.

Don't! It's all in your strict catholic upbringing, yaknow.
All this sin and guilt and nonsense. =D

Sorry, no match for your sample yet.

I know this font. I will find it.

Bald Condensed's picture

My thoughts exactly, Stewf. This is friggin' frustratin'.

I believe we're looking for a rather industrial drawing-
looking contemporary sans, rather rectangular, slightly
reminiscent of Isonorm, Faux-CRA, Foundry Monoline
and the likes. Stroke ends appear rounded, spurs on 'r'
and 'm' are quite pointy.

Places to look might be Lineto, Testpilot Collective, [T-26]...
What else?

Steve, it's all in the gnomes... =D

Stephen Coles's picture

Beta Sans is so close!

Bald Condensed's picture

The first thing I checked :-)

Bald Condensed's picture

Beautiful... but too squarish. Furthermore, check the right-hand
corner of the bowl of the 'e': it should be rounded.

Bald Condensed's picture

Hi Jason, we're not very good at this, are we? :-(

In the meantime I managed to do a full run of the FontBook,
alas to no avail. Did anyone check any digital-only foundries,
so I don't double-check when I get to that?
