(x) Lucky Strike logo - custom (similar to Futura Cond) {Marten, Jan E}

Hi there,

can anyone tell me the typeface used for the Lucky Strike logo, I have a feeling it may be custom so any other faces that look similar would be great




Search Typophile via Google and you'll find information on this. The logo is done by Raymond Loewy and the closest I think you'll get are Futura Bold Condensed.

Futura Condensed Extra Bold or Antique Olive Bold Condensed come close.

AH ha, thanks, I had a search and ofund the article on Mr Loewy but must have missed the type. Thanks for the speedy response
