I always encounter various fonts and logos that have become outdated and haven't been upgraded and sometimes they even look better! With the amount of designs and fonts out there, companies sometimes forget about their old ones. This post shows some examples of logos being able to capture that vintage look without really trying! What do you think are some other fonts and logos that manage to do that?
What is the name of this old 1940-1950's Pepsi Logo?
Can you please help to identify the typefaces
used in the newspaper ?
Thank you very much
Can someone help me identify the fonts in this image? Thanks!
Few years ago i stumble upon some font on old poster, when i tried to find it, via various sites, nothing pop-up... then i thought, probably is old and it wasn't renewed and/or remaked.
But recently i encountered on it again, with slight changes, and most important on a new design, which means - it's still in use, and it exists. Tryed again with "what is this font" sites, nothing again...
Then i decided that i need your help!
This is the font.
Please help me ID this font!
I've been trying to look for this font for ages.
The first time I saw it was in a title card in an animated series, and I thought that it was custom made, and thus impossible to find on the Internet, but not very long ago, I found it used in a bar's facade, which led me to think that it was a pre-existing font.
The font was white with a black outline, but the TV version had some kind of "reflections". You'll understand better if you look at the image. However, the version I saw in the bar (which I assume is the original font) didn't have them.
The top image is one of the title cards I first saw the font in, and the bottom part is my own (badly-made, I know) recreation of the original look of the font, without the "reflections" seen in the first one, just as I saw it in the bar.
I'm looking for a font imitating old musical partitions words (nuances and expression).
Like here attached : "Andante" or "20".

Thanks very much
Can you please help to identify the typefaces
used for the 3 attached logotypes?
I suspect these are quite old logos.
Thank you very much
I'm looking for a font that emulates the text in old scholarly journals. Here are a few examples of what I mean:
First post. Great site.
I am looking for old italian typefaces, or references to this so that I may recreate certain aspects.
Need help identifying the font below. It is from anywhere between the 1950s to the mid 70s. Any help would be appreciated in finding out what it is. I have looked EVERYWHERE.
I'm looking for a font similar to this font on an old cricket scoreboard. I like the uneven, and hand painted look of it. I imagine this was hand painted, but if anyone knows of anything similar, I'd love to know.
Can anyone give IDing these fonts in the following conglomerate image a shot?
I'd like to present you my newest design project! I love movie posters and for years I've wanted to create my own versions for some of the movies I liked! But as the trend of making personal movie posters on the Internet became pretty big and it felt like almost everyone was doing it, I tried to find a way to still do it in an original way, and make them even more personal. So, the idea was to take some old photos from my family's photo-albums, and then turn them into movie posters by adding the type and making minor changes on the photos.
Weingut Script Flourish is a decorative display font with high contrasts, perfectly drawn to the tiniest details. The font is trimmed to fairly large font sizes and is highly suitable for chapter titles or book jackets as well as Headlines, Invitations and wine labels, although also impressing with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Inspired by the hand drawn Blätterschrift from the 19th century Mettenleiter’s Schriftenmagazin, its basic structure is related to the English Script. The creative process started in summer 2009 and after 600 hours of work, over a 2 year period, Weingut now unfolds to reveal all its charms.
Created by Georg Herold-Wildfellner.
Design with bicoloured capitals:
Can anyone ID this old Camaro typeface?
The Upright Script, not the 350.
Most likely custom but someone may have re-created it, or something similar?
Greater Albion Typefounders has just released the Spillsbury family on Myfonts.com.
Spillsbury was inspired by some examples of 1920s signwriting (principally seen on the side of some vintage vans-good thing they were in a photograph and not on the move!).
Spillsbury draws inspiration from these sources to provide a unique combination of legibility and flair, which echoes the charm of advertising and publicity material from the halcyon days of the 1920s.
A basic range of four display faces os offered - Regular, Plain (not all that plain really!), Shaded and Shadowed.
This is a font ive been working, is inspired by the amazing "Mostra" from Mark Simonson. I wanted a font with a old feel to use on my vintage artworks and graphics, it started as a vector file that i use, but them i keep adding more characters and turned it into a real font. I would like to know the opinion of the people here about this font. Thanks.
This is my first post. I am trying to include a picture by using the insert image link. I hope it worked. It did not show up in the preview.
I would be very appreciative for any ideas of the approximate age of this label. I notice the text is different from the background, and the background is not plain as I would have expected but dotted upon close magnification, whereas the text is solid by comparison. Thank you for your thoughts.
Greater Albion have just released two new families on Myfonts and Fontspring.
Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces. It's a family of three 'all capital' faces. A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic - with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text - which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look. It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility. It's ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.
Greater Albion Typefounders have just released the Worthing family on Myfonts.com and Fontspring (fonts.com release to follow).
Worthing aims to combine Victorian charm with modern-day requirements for legibility and clarity, and we hope, demonstrates that traditional elegance still has its place in the modern world. Meanwhile, for those who our curious about the naming of our fonts, Mr Lloyd our designer was reading Mr Wells (H. G.) “War of the Worlds” recently. No doubt some of you will remember the part that Worthing in Sussex played in that story. Worthing is offered in three styles, regular, alternate and shaded. It's ideal for Victorian and Edwardian era inspired design work, posters and signage, as well as for book covers, chapter headings and so forth.
