Since I admire this typeface and it isn't for sale, is there any way I could create it from scratch?
Have you tried contacting the agency to discuss the possibility of discreet licensing terms or, if it is tied to a specific client, asking if a similar but sufficiently different version is available or being developed for commercial release?
This is a pretty common style of font. Similar ones:
Given the face is based on the Prada logo, I doubt there is any way Prada would let you do much with it.
Looking further, there's a link to this page - the text (after the samples) indicates that it is NOT a completed font, merely exploratory; a work in progress.
You could give the A and R treatment to an open-source Times, suitably stretched and modded.
Its really a good sharing links...ric
