oops. I meant to say, I wouldn't rule out Adobe.
Indeed, Romic Light, a face with plenty of artful dints. your turn!
Finally! OK, here's one: I dearly hope this one isn't too easy for y'all.
Two questions: Is that the top and bottom of a number 2. Crash Numbering from RXC?
Well, Jeez, I'm going to have to make this just a little more difficult for you. So I'll say this: the answer to one of the questions is yes, and the answer to the other is no. But I'm not saying which question is answered which way. Ha! (That'll only extend my reign by about ten seconds, I imagine. BUT IT'S WORTH IT!)
You have me in a pickle.
Oh, OK. No on #1, yes on #2.
Is it Aspect from Tankard?
I think bj got it right, it's Psy/Ops Crash Numbering, the bottom of the 2 over the top of the 3. Like in a misaligned rubber-stamp-numbering-machine, or whatever its real name is.
I think you got it right the first time, bj. It's Psy/Ops Crash Numbering, the bottom of the 2 over the top of the 3. Like in a misaligned rubber-stamp-numbering-machine, or whatever its real name is.
Is it DTL Romulus?
sorry for the double post, my machine is acting weird today...
That is the correct answer, Jesus. BJ asked two questions: 1. Is it the top & bottom of the 2? 2. Is it Crash Numbering from RXC? While the answer to Question 2 is yes, the answer to Question 1 is no, because, as Jesus pointed out, it's the alternate 2, which shows the top of the 3. So on a technicality, I think Jesus wins it. Sorry, BJ!
I'll defer to the Founder of the Thread. Your turn Jesus. Guessing Romulus and Aspect was simply personal amusement. Brioso? I was too lazy to go back to psyops. It's Friday!
Am I sneaky, or what? he, he, he (evil sounding laughter) In all fairness I think bj deserves the credit. I would have never thought of Crash Numbering. Please, bj, go ahead and post the next challenge.
no really Jesus. I'm eager to see what you come up with. My cupboard is bare. Plus, it's because of Chesh that we have such amusement and he made the ruling. bj
All right, then, give me a few minutes and I'll post something. Thanks, bj.
Here it is, guys.
It is a Galliard-esque "G"...
...but with paprika flavor.
A little more detail.
A whole weekend and still nobody? c'mon guys!! Another hint, it is a custom typeface, but a very publicized one, produced by a big player in the editorial type business.
Is it by Mattew Carter?
Sorry, Nicolai, not by Carter.
Eduardo is right on the money. Now, just name the typeface.
