(x) Squarish Sans - IGNITE GROWTH/SALES KICKOFF - Nuri {Akira}

Hi folks,

I received these samples asking for an ID and I searched the places I usually would, including the Sans Guide, MyFonts, FontShop and Veer. I have had no luck finding an exact match. The colored lettering is what I am trying to find.

Thanks for your help,

- Mike

Looks like this thread was asking about the same font, but these samples are a bit clearer and show a few more letters.

One idea I had in looking at this is that it's sort of like Amplitude without the ink traps.

Bump. Seems like this should be something we can find. Could it be customized "Amplitude", as I suggested above?

It reminds me of the geometry of emigré's Solex, only wider. But that always seems like more work than was probably done.

Christian Schwartz did draw a version of Amplitude without the oversized ink traps called Amplitude Headline.

Frode, that is a good find. I think that is the answer to this post. Thanks all.

I think the spacing is not up to Christian Schwartz's standards. The W especially seems overkerned with the O. Looking at the sample of Amplitude Headline, the G here with its vertically sheared terminal looks quite different. Also the leg of R here seems to join the bowl further away from the stem than in Amplitude.

Mike, did your search include free fonts? The G suggests to me the designer didn't quite know about stroke thinning at the spur.

Good comments Ben. I thought the shape of the G wasn't quite the same.

I thought this looked too 'professional' for a search of the free fonts, but I will look now that you raised the issue.

No joy at Dafont. This sample seems like type that is way better than almost every freebie I saw. Maybe someone tweaked a commercial font? Still think Amplitude is at least a good substitute -- it would have fooled me, for what that's worth.

No luck at Abstract Fonts either. Those are the two main freebie sites I search, because they categorize and allow you to set test samples.

Any other freebie sites that could be suggested as mostly legit freebies that are similarly searchable?

Yeah those are the two sites I know too. Sorry to have sent you off on a wild goose chase. Hmm, a tricky one. Where did the sample come from?

Font Squirrel is, AFAIK, pretty legit too, but I didn't see it in their collection either.

The sample came from a designer who lives near my area. He may be the one using 'Castleman' as his user name from the other thread. He seemed happy enough with the Amplitude Headline answer, even though it seems not to be exact. I presume he wanted an ID because his client wanted something using this same font.

Nuri is similar.

I just don't know how you do it, Akira.

Similar? I think you nailed it!

bowfinpw's picture

Yes, Akira you did nail it. The guy who asked me, finally got his client to ask the original designer and it was Nuri from Gestalten.

By the way, I searched FontShop for squarish fonts and never saw that font using keyword, or genre collections with similar styles. That should be re-keyed so it can be found.
