Hello guys :)
I'm not necessarily trying to ID that font, I just want to find out whether it was custom made typeface for a particular client, or some online available font. Have you seen it before?
The reason why I am asking, is because friend of mine, who is the CEO of very large Malaysian Broadband company, recently did major Branding make over for his company. I won't mention what agency did the job, but it's given, being that Time DotCom (http://time.com.my)is a public listed company, the new branding cost them few hundred thousands dollars.
To be honest with you, I wasn't impressed. Not that I know allot on that topic, but I do design for almost 20 years and I do have some basic sense of elegance and aesthetics. I don't think it was money well spent.
Anyway, friend of mine is very proud of his new "look", saying that design was especially catered for them, and I won't be able to find such typography anywhere.
Two weeks later, I'm surfing around, checking some work done by Interbrand and within their portfolio, I come across brand developed by them for Wal-Mart's electronic product call ATVIO. The font resemblance is unmistakable. Hard to believe, both companies came up with same idea for a very prominent letter "T".
Have you seen that font? I'm really curious to find out whether it's a custom made stuff or some free typeface from the internet.
