Hi, a week ago, traffic authorities of Prague changed the signs in one metro station in Prague. Can anyone identify the typeface they used? Thanks.
This is a sample from the Solari split-flap "Train Information" board at Amtrak's PHL 30th St. Station. I suspect the typeface on the flaps is a custom job (presented as monospaced on single-character flaps, but kerned on longer place-name flaps), but I'm looking for something with a similar feel. So far the best I've got is Whitney Condensed Book or Medium; which will work fine, but I still wanted to see if there were any other opinions.
Looking to ID the 'trespassing'
http://yfrog.com/4eulwdj Hand drawn type in Brazil.
Ken Bessie, Lex Kominek, and I had the second Calgary Typophile meet-up last night at a conveniently located pub, where we were faced with the sign below.
Much to the amusement of the other people with whom we were sharing a table, we tried, unsuccessfully, to identify this face: heck, it even stumped Lex! (No, we hadn't had that many beers either.)
Apart from the fact that the kerning leaves a fair bit to be desired (and what's with those periods?), would someone else like to take a stab at this one?
(And if you're in Calgary and want to come along to the next event, ask one of us for details.)
