>>> Type ID Pop Quiz V2.5 - Intermediate Level

Florian Hardwig's picture

This is how it works:

  • A complete glyph is published in the Type ID Pop Quiz.
  • Try to identify the typeface. To win, you need to name both the typeface and the weight.
  • Show off your knowledge by casually mentioning additional trivia, like who designed it, when and by whom was it (first) published, and other cool stuff to impress your fellow Typophiles with.
  • The winner produces a new challenge -- a complete glyph, black on white background, presented in a 288 x 288 pixel square, including a R204G000B00 1 pixel border.
  • The person who posts a challenge can't win the next game.

In case of any disputes, Mr Bald Condensed or me will act as judge, jury and avenging angel of wrath.

If you think this is a little too difficult, maybe try the Entry Level Type ID Pop Quiz first. Too easy? Go to the Expert Level Type ID Pop Quiz.

Good luck everyone, and have fun. ;^)

Here's a new one, if anyone is still watching this...

The roughness is because I do not own the face ( it's not the cheapest of fonts ) and the website doesn't provide a bigger sample.

It’s the ‘G’ from TEFF’s Burgundica, probaby the X075 grade.

Lozz_berry's picture

damn, thatt was quick

Jan's picture

Well, Bart tends to choose type from his neighbourhood for his challenges and if he says the font in question isn’t the cheapest it must be either from TEFF or DTL and since it’s obviously a blackletter typeface it was quite easy ;-)

barthak's picture

Hehe, I know, I was lazy ;) I'll pick a tougher one next time.

Well done, Jan, your turn!

Jan's picture

Thanks Bart.

Here’s one of my favourite italics:

nina's picture

Oh, that should be Garamond MT Italic. Wicked slant!

Jan's picture

Absolutely correct (and wicked), Nina. Your turn.

nina's picture

Thanks Jan!

New glyph:

Ehague's picture

That's really, really close to the Greta Grande small caps n.

nina's picture

Wow, you are also really, really close!!

Ehague's picture

Haha. I don't know why I thought about small caps before I thought about weights.

Is it Greta Grande Bold N?

nina's picture

:-) It's actually the Medium "N"!
But you're too close for the next turn not to be yours. :-)

Ehague's picture

Thanks!

Not sure if this is too easy, but I only learned of this typeface a few days ago and am already completely enamored of it.

Celeste's picture

Freight Serif ?

Ehague's picture

No, although my affinity for Freight is well-documented haha.

DuffanyHero's picture

PL Barnum Block?
(Probably wrong, but hey, a good guess)

Florian Hardwig's picture

Let’s get this going …
Is it the µ from Farao Black by František Štorm?
F

Ehague's picture

Florian got it. Nice!

Florian Hardwig's picture

Okay, here we go again:

barthak's picture

To make things easy an inverted interrobang?

Florian Hardwig's picture

Yes, that’s correct! As one would need to properly typeset Spanish interrogative exclamations, like ‘‽Qué Cabrón‽’
I guess that narrows the options down drastically, no? ;-)

murphy.md's picture

Is it Vesper Regular Italic? The slanted dot gives it away. There's a nice article about it on ilovetypography.

Florian Hardwig's picture

Michael: well done! Without any further hints – call me impressed. Your turn!

murphy.md's picture

Thanks.

Here's my attempt.

murphy.md's picture

Too obscure? I look at this font for hours everyday, but that's probably no consolation.

riccard0's picture

The construction is similar to the one of Lucida Console.

murphy.md's picture

Yes, it's a monospace font, hence my staring for hours at it everyday while coding. The construction of this glyph is very similar to Lucida Console as Riccardo says, but the designer indicates that it was actually inspired by the equally nice Consolas by Lucas de Groot.

riccard0's picture

I know this font.

murphy.md's picture

Are you building up suspense?

riccard0's picture

I just hope someone else comes up with the answer!

eliason's picture

Riccardo's too lazy to say that it's Inconsolata by Raph Levien
http://www.levien.com/type/myfonts/inconsolata.html

riccard0's picture

:-)
Actually, I was too lazy to think up some glyph for the quiz! ;-)

eliason's picture

Here's a new one:

murphy.md's picture

Er yes, you were right by the way, please post a new glyph.

eliason's picture

Sorry murphy.md, didn't mean to be rude! :-/

murphy.md's picture

Hehe, don't worry about it. Although I believe I know what this font is. Shame I can't say...

eliason's picture

You got it, Marcelo.

plumbago's picture

ok :-)

Have fun!

eliason's picture

Ooh I know it.

plumbago's picture

Hehe...

murphy.md's picture

Is it an upside-down exclamation mark?

plumbago's picture

Yes, Michael.

plumbago's picture

Aaah! no, sorry, it's really close but is not it. It's 3 years older than Constructivist Square.

murphy.md's picture

Then it's Epokha by Colin Brignall. Right?

plumbago's picture

That's right! Nicely done Michael, your turn.

murphy.md's picture

Ok, another interesting @:

murphy.md's picture

No takers? It's a very recent font: 2009 in fact.
