Rip-Off ???
0

Hi all,

I was wondering if the new Breauhare typeface released on MyFonts and called bauhaus-bugler http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/breauhare/bauhaus-bugler/
was not a bit too inspired by one my release called Qero also available at MyFonts here:

I like the way you named the .gif of the offending font - not trying to sway the jury are you?

This is the problem with programmatic type design: someone else can come up with the same programme, and the results will inevitably be similar. I note that the description for Bauhaus Bugler type says it was designed in 1975, which is believable based on the style, and it wasn't an original idea even then.

What John said.
All such typefaces, including yours , are “rip-offs” (by your own standard) of Herbert Bayer’s Universal Alphabet of 1926.
