Can any one identify this font painted on our gym's roof at the University of Arizona as we have lost all record of it. We would very much appreciate it.

I was trying to figure out what the "Alex" and "Celebrate" font is as well as the "SANDERS" and "University of South Florida". Also looks like the "6:00 PM" is also different. Thanks to all those that help me with this!

Hi there. I recently came across another term for the Tuscan/Western/Circus-style fonts and I cannot remember what it was. I recall it being a city or possibly a state and that it struck me as odd that it wasn't what I would generally think of as a western location. I'm hung up on Michigan, but I don't know if there is any reason for that. If anyone out there is more knowledgeable and can end my mental blockage, I sure would appreciate it.


This is the name painted on the stern of a boat (sorry for the image quality, I don't have access to the boat to take another). I'm pretty sure the font was found for free online, but I don't know its name. The general look is (if I understand the terms correctly) western-style, with serifs and pointy doodads at the midline, and the top half is outline while the lower half is solid.


Could you guys critique my school research project?
I modulated the Hebrew type over the Western type system, using the Minion Pro as basic typeface.
Hope you like it.

Enjoy :)


Most likely custom, but if anybody has anything very close in mind?

Thank you,

Crazy "Western" type id

Hi there,
Can anyone name this font? I would have bet money that it was from dafont but I don't see it there. The closest was Carnevalee Freakshow but that's a big stretch. I don't see anything similar on myfont.com. The logo was made around 5 years ago.


I'd love this beautiful face identified.


So I saw this Carnival/Western style display face two days ago, and have bene looking everywhere possible since. Some examples are listed below.



I have stumbled across only one in the past day that is very close, but some of the serif/ornaments are not the same. That can be seen here.


I have literally spent hours going through free and paid type sites and am just not having any luck. The above was actually suggested using What the Font on MyFonts.com.

Thanks in advance for any input!

Hi all, can anyone identify the font used for the masthead of Peaches Geldof's magazine 'Disappear Here'? View here: http://disappearheremag.com/images/masthead.gif

Many thanks

looks like a split-wood, splintery version of something like Playbill or PT Barnum

I've fallen in love with this typeface but cannot find it *anywhere*. I've never come across a bit of circus/western this delicate & girly. I don't believe this is handdrawn, but anything is possible! Any ideas on ID, hive mind?

hello, need some help with this fun font. Is it an actual font or a great slab (what is it?) with some rounded corners.. ? any help is appreciated.

Can anyone help me ID the western font used on the heading of http://indianpeaksspringwater.com?

New Font: Andrano

Once again I have fallen under the influence of my fashion conscious teenage daughter, who tells me that I absolutely must produce more "shabby chic" fonts like the trendy scrapbookers and hip fashion label designers use. On showing her examples this turns out to mean more circus style fonts with wide ascenders and decoration. We did this dance once before the the Cascade font and she wasn't entirely satisfied. It was too Art Deco and not crude enough looking.

Of interest to most designers here on Typophile. I've shot more examples of Arabic versions of Western Identities (some are actually dual designs from the ground up.) Additional packaging/consumer good examples forthcoming.


Older sets from last year can be found within the article too. Enjoy.
