"Malin + Goetz" handwritten script from Barney's

John the Fontaholic's picture

Hi everybody,

I haven't had any luck with getting this font ID'd at My Fonts' "What the Font?" forum, so I thought I'd try here...

Is this a commercially available script font, or something that was drawn by hand and/or custom-made?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Might be easier if you had a sample attached.

Didn’t work because of a space in the file name.
Here it is:

There are no repeating characters, so it's hard to say definitively just by looking at it.

I could upload a larger sample -- I was restricted by My Fonts' What the Font? forum only wanting an image with so many identifying thingys...

It looks like it's used all over the Barney's website (click a few links to see the categories in red). I'm sorry, but I don't believe I've ever seen that font before.

For future reference, John, it's the MyFonts automated WTF utility that has a max of 25 characters. For the MyFonts Forum, as here, more is generally better for identification purposes.

I see now that Jan was unable to ID your font on the MyFonts forum - and she is the very best at script fonts. I also see that Metro2005 came up with the same conclusion I thought likely - that your font is a Barney's exclusive.

I went through all 25 pages of Part 11 of Mike Y's Script ID Guide, using the distinctive 'y' to try to find this font. The only font with a similar 'y' is Chas HW (which is otherwise not a match).

Based on the source, this is most likely a custom job for Barneys. You could try contacting someone at Ingredient as they seem to have designed the site.

Hi everyone,

Well thanks for your help in this request -- it's semi-comforting to know that if all the font gurus here are stumped, then at least I'm in good company! ;-)

Cheers,
