Submit the font to WhattheFont.com and it will analyze it for you and suggest a bunch.

Well, just need to scan a page then. Thing is that whatthefont will probably identify it as helvetica, but I'm pretty shure it's not. I'll go to illy and check if it's univers, if not then it's always worth a shot. At least I got to use it to identify the old font they used


edit: hah, I was right, it was Univers (and if anyone is curious, the one they used before the redesign where Avenir - no wonder I love i-D)

I think it's linotype that distributes Univers - check out this link

Think of it as a Swiss design with a French heart. As its weight increases, this personality becomes more apparent. The slight (but clearly visible) contrast in stroke weight, subtle angularity, and just the smallest hint of calligraphic brush stroke make Univers a typeface with a twinkle in its eye.
— Allan Haley

that's the question. They are abit expensive I guess though, otherwise I'd just reccomend buying the whole damn thing

edit: you can buy them pretty cheap individually here if you want. I'd say Roman, Bold and light.

I'm just reading this thread for the first time since I have a typography class this semester. Anyway, I noticed in post 54, about the presidential candidates' logos, they predicted Obama and McCain would be the parties' picks based on logo alone. And that post was made in January. Interesting yea?

Nice catch pinksatin!

How do you like your class so far? It's amazing how much is involved in typography, so much more than people assume.

Thanks! Yea I like my classes so far. it's exciting, kinda like we're learning all these secrets about things people use a trillion times a day (type, letters) and it has an effect on them but they don't know how or even that it's effecting how they read or how they feel about something. We are making our own letterforms right now from pictograms of abstract drawings of realistic drawings of an object we chose.
