Gritty font

Adonyao's picture

Here's what I'd love to know:

1. What's the name of the font used in the logo?

2. Is there a font similar to this one but smooth? (i.e. a sans-serif without any of the grittieness)

I would be very grateful for any assistance.

Thanks so much,

The font we see is Base 02. Its letterforms come from Helvetica by Max Miedinger. The font itself was printed on paper, then the paper crushed and sprayed with white colour, the result scanned and newly digitized if I recall it correctly from a forum thread.

Thank you Riccard0 and Renko. I really appreciate the in depth analysis.
