Can anyone help me with this one or anything similar to it. Thanks in advance!
Maybe it would help with more
Solstice (1994) by William Ford Smith. You'll find it at [T-26].
PS This should have been a 3-minuter, except for the fact I only just arrived at work and checked my e-mails 5 minutes ago. ;p
Great stuff Yves! I knew I had seen it before but couldn't find it. Sigh! Story of my life.
Well done, Yves! I'm peeved, though: I didn't know the face, but it sure seemed T-26ish to me, so I looked there in what seemed to me to be appropriate classifications. Of course, now that you've shown which font it is, I can see that they classified it as a "headline" font. Only...there is no classification "headline" under "search by style." Their classification system bites. Still, knowing the face off the top of your head trumps looking it up, so I bow to you, sir. That, not speed, is true Hall of Fame material.
THX Dave, you make my evening, end of the week, weekend and possibly my month. And I totally agree with you about that sorry excuse for a classification system that [T-26] use on their website. But I still quite like their interface. And a fair share of their faces. Actually, I've known [T-26] to surface on the market back when I still worked for FontShop. I clearly remember what a breath of fresh air it seemed compared to the household names that populated the FontBook in those days. There were quite a few rubbish faces amongst them, but at last the grunge generation had their own type library. That's why I studied their catalogue avidly and got to know a few of their faces pretty well. Little piece of trivia: the Troubleman "logotype" is set in Escalido, a grunged-up Letter Gothic. Nothing spectacular, but it is what it is and does the job perfectly:
Whoops, that was the large-sized logo :/
