Hufnagel font

theo2505's picture

hi everybody,

can someone help me with this / these fonts.

link : http://www.ceveritt.com/images/huf.coe.3.jpg

I wonder how to get the deformation of "Hufnagel", "Custom", and "cycle". I tried to do this with Illustrator but without success. maybe he to create the letter one by one manually, but I doubt it. There is necessarily a way to do it "cleanly"

Other request :

I want to know the name of fonts used in this link : http://www.ceveritt.com/images/huf.coe.2.jpg

i'd really appreciate your help

thanks in advance.

T.

Ps : sorry for my english…

The embossed letters in your first image seem to use a different C for CYCLES, because it looks too rounded. I would guess that these letters might be hand-drawn and then machined. The S is not usual, but I was not able to find this in a font.

In your second image, the sans serif for most lettering could be Gotham from H&FJ, but the letters are not distinctive enough to be sure.

The large HUFNAGEL letters look like a Victorian-era serif, but I could not find an exact match.

For the large HUFNAGEL I found one quite similar : http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/horndon/

With some little adjustments, mainly on /U, you can get pretty close using LHF Billhead (1900).
The script looks handwritten to me. Have a look to some "script handwritten monoline" and "handwritten monoline" tagged fonts at MyFonts, you may find some interesting alternatives. The missing sans could be a lot of thing so why not (the ubiquitous) Gotham.

This "new" element only confirms to me what I said. (Based on) Billhead 1900.
