Can anyone identify this font?
The font is printed in the alumni magazine page 21.

Tip: If you have a PDF, you can see in Acrobat (File > Document Properties) which fonts the file is using.

Hey Chung,

It's probably a typeface they designed themselves, I'm study type design and typography in holland the Hague and the system used for this face is what's teached nowadays. The repetition of forms: if you look at the shape of the "u" this is simply a rotated "n" and the "n" is the left side of the "m". This system works in the beginning of type design but is not as sophisticated as typefaces that are constructed for the best optical effect.

For these reasons I think it's something done by this academy.
I do think it's a nice typeface for headings though.

good luck,
Sidney

No, really, it’s Freight Big Black, designed by Joshua Darden, apparently not related with The Hague.

You can type with this font at:

I'm just as confused as you are, Cristobal.
