Yes it's Ottomat
So what will you come up with now? ;)

thank you Peter.

by telling Jack he was "getting closer", you pretty much gave it away. i must admit though, that i searched the PsyOps library before i went to Emigre.

I'll post a new challenge shortly.

Uhh...sideways Helvetica R?

nope, not sideways. it's not rotated or flipped in any way.

"r", Kettler by Eric Olson.

close's picture

hmmmmmmm, very close, Eduardo!

close's picture

well, actually you pretty much got it, Edurado.

just tell me what the "limited time freefont" version of Kettler was called and you are the winner.

eomine's picture

It is Indivisible. ;-)

close's picture

congratulations Eduardo, you got it for sure now!

and i didn't even know Eric had released Indivisible under the name Kettler, silly me! btw, Eric, in case you're reading this, great font! probably my favorite monospaced typeface.

OK Eduardo, time for a tough one. ;-)

eomine's picture

Kettler is very nice.
Let's see what you think of this:
quiz

spontaneous guess: Radio by Magnus Rakeng

eomine's picture

Nope.

defrancisco's picture

My guess is the alternate lowercase o from Pampa Type's Rayuela It

eomine's picture

Wow, you are good, Jes

defrancisco's picture

For a Cortazar fan, Rayuela is a name difficult to forget ;-)
and it's only my first pop quiz ID.

I'll try to come up with something worthy of the audience,
but I need to go back to work first. Patience, my friends.

Here it is, a very telling shape...

eomine's picture

Looks familiar... Is that Formata Italic, "g"?

defrancisco's picture

Not Formata. Sorry!

Keep looking Eduardo :-)

First hint: It's from a one-man foundry.

defrancisco's picture

Came back from lunch and I couldn't believe my eyes...

Nobody yet?

Second hint: European.

defrancisco's picture

Third hint: a recent British "addition" to the type world.
