Typographic boubt

MarcSalinas's picture

Hello
I am looking for the name of this font (I attached an image in JPG). How can you see is an adaptation of existing typography. I thought it was a Futura, but the capital S does not correspond to that family and that's where I started to doubt ...
It can be a Futura, but somehow type foundry I unknown?

If someone in the photo can help me, thank you very much!

Hi Marc,

I'm glad being of some help :)
and thank you for your compliments about Find my Font.

In fact we are now in beta testing of an even better version
(a major update to be deployed in a few weeks),
which, in addition to local font matching -fonts in your PC as the current version does-
it will also be able to identify 10ths of thousand of commercial and free fonts
using our online font matching information database.

It will be deployed at the same price,
and it will be a free upgrade for all existing Find my Font Pro customers.
When the time comes, I will make an official announcement
here in typophile/software forums.

Have a nice day
Fivos

Fivos, are you Hrant 2.0? Your line breaks are weird…

Ha ha... Bert you are so right!
and I haven't noticed until you say so...
After your comment I checked some of Hrant messages,
and I have to say they are -at least- right justified,
while mine are really weird.
Another thing to tell my therapist I suppose :)

(that's the result when your mother is a poet,
and you finally become a computer programmer:
A real weird hybrid!)

Economy notwithstanding, linebreaks should indeed ideally follow the content, even for prose.

In the late 80s I typeset a children's book my father had written (it was the first time one of my fonts was going to be used for a book) and I'm still proud of how I made the linebreaks support the pace of reading.

My father was skeptical at first, but a couple of Armenian-language teachers pointed out how helpful the custom linebreaks were.
