(x) "TOC" tech sans similar to Bell Gothic - FF DIN {Lex}

Charles Grant's picture

I keep coming across this typeface, always thinking it's Bell Gothic... It has a lot of similarities but many differences, namely the 'I'.

Can anybody help with the I.D?

Thanks,
C.

Thanks robbiefa... that seems to be the one!

I found the image whilst browsing design books on Amazon.com. The book is Letterhead & Logo Design 9

Use the 'search inside' tool... the image is from one of the example pages.

HNY!

I think it's DIN - look at the 'R' in the smaller letters.

Yes, both are very similar... however, I think Antogometrica is closest. Check out the arms of the 'C', Antogometrica's stops shorter like the example.

Yea at first i went Din... but then i remembered seeing those caps somewhere else! Nice font in caps not as crazy about the lower case!

Now that i look at the smaller text i think they are using din... but the logo is still, antagometrica. The Capital R isn't antagometrica nice spot lex!

I agree rob' I don't care much for the lowercase either!

I guess you're both correct then! Strange choice to combine two typefaces so similar... but hey, it grabbed my attention.

Thanks to both for the ID...

The chapter titles w/ page numbers certainly are DIN, aren’t they? Just look at the ‘R’…

I think it is Din. From what I remember there are two versions; the horizontal terminals on the C (and other characters) is the standard, and angled terminals is the Alternate version.

FF Din Medium Alternate is the one in the sample.
