Contemporary use of Fraktur

joe's picture

I am currently writing a short dissertation about if / how Blackletter and especially Fraktur gains back importance to current design and typography, and whether or not Fraktur can leave its poor national-socialistic associations behind. Now I am looking for contemporary sources whether Blackletter has been used in advertising, branding, fashion, music or modern typefaces ; basically in anything that has been created in the last 10 years.
Generally I am looking for some more 'mainstream' examples and I remember that for example Nike did some ads using Fraktur a few years ago.
Does anybody know of further examples?

There was an interesting thread on contemporary Fraktur over on TypoForum.
It's in German - you might be able to pick up some names of typefaces, or try the automatic translation.

You know this Flickr group?
You will also find some "mainstream" examples there, like Reebok:
