¶ Apart from the notorious Claude Garamont and his Garamond typeface, Lyon-born Robert Granjon, another key figure of the French Renaissance, gave us roman and italic typefaces.
¶ The question that comes to mind now is what's the real Robert Granjon "roman" available on digital format:
Granjon (George William Jones)
Plantin (Frank Pierpont)
Galliard (Matthew Carter)
¶ Many thanks to your inputs to come.
Hello all; this is my first time posting, though I've come here reading off and on. I have been learning all I can so I can speak intelligently about this topic, but please forgive me (and correct me) if I use some of the technical terms incorrectly or too broadly.
The attached logo was found on some rolls of metallic stickers that our insurance agency has been using for various purposes for at least twenty years, if not longer. We are currently looking into branching out with our marketing methods, which has of course left us in need of a distinctive "look" -- and we would like to use this logo, as it is (in our opinion) rather handsomely suited to the "tone" of the business we are pursuing, as well as able to give us some brand continuity. Unfortunately, the gentleman who designed the logo for us is long deceased, and we have no original files anywhere either.
Now, even after hours of searching and browsing through font identification tools, none of us have been able to determine which typeface is used here. The interesting flourishes don't help, I'm sure...
