Nothing yet? I thought you guys would nail this in no time! I'll give you another piece of a different glyph, then...
Aw, that was too easy now, wasn't it? Take it, Karl.
Here it is. I don't follow this quiz religiously, so I hope this has not been posted before. BTW, Your clue gave it away Adriano.
The man is on FIRE today!
Sauna - Number 2
no and no. I think Mr. Sandler is just guessing sauna because he knows it is one of my favorites.
I should add that stuart has the correct glyph: 2
Foiled again . . . . :D
Very close to MVB Fantabular
Nope. I'll post more tomorrow if need be.
The whole glyph:
bingo. My favorite #2. It's yours Tiff.
I should have known it wouldn't be anything so easy as Franklin Gothic No. 2, but boy, that spur...
Griffith Gothic Ultra Normal???
Okie dokie, here it is.
he he.. i think it looks like a bra from the 1950's is it the letter "w" ?
Not a shirt or a bra..oh and not a "w" either.
Okay, here's another view, same glyph.
I always thought that the foundry that created this was based in Europe, but it's actually based here in California.
No takers??? Here's a different glyph...
yup, same font, different glyph.
VARIEX! from Emigre
You nailed it BJ! The first glyph is the @ and the second is the "B". Take it away BJ.
Okay snoop, I'll come up with one in about an hour or so.
an easy one perhaps ...
Wow BJ, it's so big! ;-) I'll take a wild guess..."n" from Eurostile Black Extended?
good guess but no. What you see is the glyph ending, so it's a lowercase r. I was not trying to fool ya with the crop. Sorry about the XL image... btw, the typeface is more common than Eurostile.
Taking some inspiration from the critique threads maybe? Chicago lowercase r.
correct, good job ... I wanted to find an unusual glyph nested in an Apple System Font but didn't get very far. And yeah, I was thinking bitmap because Susan Kare is distributed thru Atomic. your go ...
Hot damn. I wouldn't have come up with that if I didn't have Chicago on the brain the last few days, both from Miguel Hernandez's brilliant take on the ugly beast and from its use on the iPod classic, which has been replaced on the iPod mini with Espy Sans.
RR Pall Mall?
Nope. Not RR Pall Mall. Another Glyph: Thought this font has been around for a decade, I hadn't seen it prominently used (or should I say creatively misused) until this past year.
> Rosewood fill? Precisely! It's been impossible not to spot it if you've tripped into a Starbucks this past holiday season, and I've found it in Levis in-store displays as well. Was my clue too helpful? You're up Chesh. Sorry Tiffany, one minute too late!
Chesh, happy birthday and all that, but you're neglecting your duties here. Repair forthwith, please.
Well, that explains why I haven't seen any new messages from this thread in a while! Must be getting senile in my old age. My apologies -- here's the next:
the X from Xylo?
Close! Correct glyph, wrong typeface.
x from helvetica? Ok. Ok. Just bumping the thread back up to the top. If you're all trying to coax me into giving away a hasty display font, forget it :-) Quizmasters, what up?
BJ was so close, I thought he was going to get it soon after his last try. Here's a hint: Xylo looks very much like the typeface in question, but Xylo has 26 things the typeface in question doesn't have.
I'm still sulking from not nailing a 3-minute Pop Quiz ID. ;)
Sorry, BJ, but you're about to get another chance at a 3-minute ID, cuz... GRANT'S THE WINNAH! Actually, the typeface I had used was Xavier Black, but because it turns out that Xavier Black is an exact copy of Ashley Crawford (does Linotype hold the original rights to the face?), Grant is ubercorrect. Take it away!
