What's this font? I see this EVERYWHERE lately. The 'LONDON' part.

Hi Erin,

looks like Rosewood Fill
F

D’oh! Great.

Isn't it odd how often Rosewood Fill shows up, especially without its counterpart (Rosewood Regular)? Not that Rosewood Regular is usable for most jobs, but I would think any decent Clarendon face would be better than the over-spaced Rosewood Fill.

BTW, I just stumbled over it again in Disney's CAMP ROCK logo... with Tiki Island!

Isn’t it odd

Well, Rosewood comes bundled with Adobe software, Clarendon not. I guess that explains a lot.

No. I don’t agree it does. Rosewood Fill was never meant to be used as a typeface on its own. Doing so was a Carsonish kinda thing to do. And that’s OK. It’s just lame to still do it.

I said explain, not excuse! :—)

Explain or excuse doesn’t matter. Using Rosewood Fill is a design decision and not a availability decision.

Just have to comment to the topic title.

You saw this everywhere LATELY? Like in the past 6/7/8 years? Sorry.

It is indeed Rosewood Fill– Along the lines of Clarendon. An homage to the woodtype look.
aprt from this the other most visible stiil remain, Helvetica, Helvetica Neue, San Serif &
Sabon–Elegant

There seems to have been a hiccup, Erin -- you posted the same identification request twice (see Florian's second comment).

> Isn’t it odd how often Rosewood Fill shows up, especially without its counterpart (Rosewood Regular)?

I made that very same remark a couple of years ago. You are so right. :^D

yes, I must have unintentionally posted it twice :/
but thanks for the help ... I do now remember that it's Rosewood.
and when I said I've seen it lately -- that's just because it's come up a lot while I've perused the web, coroflot, etc. (prompting this post)
I believe starbucks has used it as well.

:)

yeah - Starbucks use it a lot.
