New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
So the short story here is that I've inherited this logotype on a project and the designer used Levenim MT to set the Latin characters. However, that's a Hebrew font:
What's the best way to approach this?
- Should I attempt to find and substitute a Latin font with identical glyphs? If so, which one?
- Should I just accept that Levenim MT was chosen for its Latin character set?
It's a geometric sans serif and I don't believe the Latin characters are from Futura, because the lower case 'c' has terminals cut radially rather than vertically-sheared.
I've run into this problem occasionally and the more general question I have is:
Are the Latin characters displayed in non-Latin fonts:
a) drawn specifically for that non-Latin font,
b) borrowed glyphs from another family,
c) substituted by the OS (Windows in the Levenim MT case)
d) one of the above depending on the font?
The follow-up question is, when this happens, a designer uses a non-Latin font for Latin characters, what's the best way to identify the family of the Latin glyphs?
Thanks for your help.
