Old Mercedes Logotype

sohlis's picture

I really dig this Mercedes Benz logo type c. 1902. Does a type which resembles this one exist? Also (and I apologize for the ignorance)is there a way to distort the type (Like the [M] in the logo) without having to rasterize?
Thanks for your help.

Looks like custom type. Everything is very rational. With the exception of the M, R and S, it comes close to a Univers Condensed or Ultra Condensed.
