Calgary

Hello all.

I was wondering if anyone could identify the font type on the Calgary 1988 Winter Olympics logo. It appears to be very similar to Helvetica Condensed Black but the "C" seems more oval to me.

Thanks in advance!

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.)
