Condensed font

Lately I'm seeing this font everywhere, but I can't find the name!

I feel like I have been seeing this style applied a lot recently. Is this just a mix of two weights...if so, what's the type?



I can't figure this one out. Thought it was DIN Round but it's not. Thought it might be T-Star but T-Star isn't rounded.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Hi there. Looking to ID the fonts used in both "CONQUER" and "CANVAS" in this pic.


Thanks in advance for any and all help!


Hi all,

Sorry about the fuzziness of this. Can anyone ID the font in this logo?


Ultra bold condensed serif,
pretty non-descript...
except for the amputated
looking y descender
that has to be a clue.

Hi all,

I'd like to identify the metal type used in this print. It's an incomplete set that I'm trying to round out. I'm new to sourcing metal type, so suggestions on that are also appreciated. Thanks very much.


can anyone help me out determining the name of this font?

Thanks in advance

Anyone know this condsensed slab?

Hi all,

Can someone identify this typeface ?

I discover it in a museum newspaper. And liked it a lot.

It is a sort of monospace with slashed zeros. Very clean.

So here is a scan below…

Thank you !

Hey guys,

Any one recognise this condensed sans serif?

CA Normal Medium is very close but doesn't have the slants on the top of the "L" and "I". That could of course just be a customisation, but the "O" is also different (hard sides on CA normal). Futhermore, the "C" and "R" seem to have slightly different proportions.




I've been working this font for a while now, and now that I've finally sketched out all the letters, I'd really appreciate some critique on the overall design of the letters before I move on to spacing/kerning/doing more weights.

In the design, I've tried to mimic several features of monospaced typefaces, keeping the typeface condensed, however allowing wider charecters like m, M, w and W.

I guess its not a good thing that I created the Bold weight first, but I guess a way to make it into a whole familiy would be to make a Light weight, and then use interpolation to create a Regular weight.

I hope you'll like it, but please do not hesitate to point out the weak parts of it.

Thanks in advance,


I'm fascinated by the numeral 4 in this publication, but I can't identify what the typeface is. I've checked the usual suspects, but unless there's some kind of opentype alternate glyphs hiding in some variant of Trade or the like, I've no idea what it is. It's the face 14 and 58 are set in here (rather fond of the 8 too). There are more pictures of the whole thing here:

Could someone help ID this? It is a picture of a name stamp out of an old textbook. Sorry for the poor quality. Notice the center vertex of the 'M' above baseline, straight comma, and circular period. Thanks for the help!


Wondering what fonts you recommend that are between:


Ideally its not another free font, would like something a little more pro. I really like Mandatory but it only has one weight. Perhaps its built off of (or stolen from) another font?

Thanks Guys,


I need a nice condensed slab, like this one I found in Eye mag.


I'm desperatly trying to identify this font...
the disoplay font that can be seen here (and take a closer look at the attached file)

I've looked at Heroic Condensed, but it's not quite the same, it's more condensed!
I can't fins this font and I like the sweetness of the "S" curve and the R geometry.

Anoyone's got an idea? Thank you very much in advance :)


Hi there, i need to identify this font. It's all capital. Thanks in advance.

Tried identifont, impossible with "what the font", found nothing by googling :-\
Here's the link to the website.

Thank you!

I've been working on this font for about 5 months, and I figure it's about time to get some fresh eyes on it. It's designed to work at both text and display sizes -- my goal is for it to be bold and interesting at large sizes but be extremely legible at small sizes while taking up the least amount of room.

I currently have seven different weights, though I am also planning on doing a set of obliques (I will probably do true italic characters as alternates, or vice-versa) as well as small caps/fractions/old-style figures/other OpenType features.

Let me know what you think!

Hi, anyone know what font this is (in orange)? I can't figure it out and it's driving me crazy... It's condensed and gothic.

Thanks for your help!

Anyone recognize this DIN/Interstate-meets-Garage-like typeface? It appears in "A World of Presidia" by Slow Food Editore (Italy, 2005) paired with Frutiger.

Thanks for your help!

i found this set in the publishing building of an old mental hospital (along with a bagful of peculiar negatives, but that's not relevant to this forum). i'm not sure what the typeface is. please excuse how dirty they are, i have yet to acetone them.

any help? if you know someone i could contact, that would help too. the internet is a nasty place to google up "movable type" because there's a publishing software by the same name.
