Temsamani Logotype

CreativeNRG's picture

I've been wracking my brain checking all of the big foundries trying to ID this font. I uploaded the image to 'WhatTheFont' and posted to the WTF Forum without any luck. The Temsamani site appears to be from Vienna, Austria so I have a gut feeling the font may be from a foundry in Europe.

Any help with an ID very appreciated.

Could be something from Jonathan Barnbrook/Virus Fonts.

If you do find it please tell us. I love that R.

Reminds me a bit of Emigre style, but can't quite pin it. I swear I just saw something very similar to this.

It's fairly similar to my own Houschka Pro Bold and DemiBold with some characters from style set 2 and a bit of tweaking.

Thanks so much Nick... You nailed it!

I searched through the G-Type collection and felt Houschka was close but mistakenly thought the A, M, N and R in the logotype were standard characters. I've learned a good lesson today. With all the extra glyphs in the Pro versions (Houschka Pro has 853 - Wow!) it certainly makes font ID of logotypes a bit tricky when designers replace standard characters with a glyph or slightly modify others.

Keep up the great work.

Thanks Jeff.

But I didn't think I had nailed it - I just thought it was similar(ish).

Bah. See I knew in the back of my head somewhere distant I recognized that R. And I think your R, Nick, is a better solution.

Probably was a modification of it. Good find, Nick.

Good find? Good design!

It wasn't that difficult to find - it was right there in my head all along.

I found a little better version of the typeface and must agree with Nick that this doesn't appear to be 'Houschka Pro'. They use this all over their website and I have a hard time believing they customized an entire font.

I'm continuing my quest to ID this typeface and will keep you posted.

The mystery has been solved after an email to the company. They sent my message to the designer who was kind enough to send the following feedback.

We are very happy to learn that you like the typeface of our client's logo. Unfortunately the typeface which you are interested in is currently not available, as it is a corporate typeface created for the branding of Temsamani Couture. But the typeface might get released through http://www.ydt-fonts.com in the near future.

All the best,
Yvonne Diedrich

After some research I discovered Yvonne also designed:

Eplica (Published by Letraset in 2001. It was among the winners of the (2001 Type Directors Club Type Design Competition)

– ITC Dyadis (Published by ITC and Linotype in 1998)

I love the R too. My friend ERIN will love it!

BTW... Eplica is one of the best values in type, it’s very high on my list.
