I need help identifying the font on a military building, constructed in early 1940s. The sign on the building was probably installed in 1941.
The first image is a historic photo of the building sign. The second photo shows the current state where the letters have been stripped from the wall. We plan on replacing the sign.
Hi, I've read the guidelines, but I apologize in advance if I'm doing some incorrectly. I'm trying to figure out the font used on this poster. Near as I can tell, it's the same font for all the text, save for "VDgraphic - 9" in the bottom left corner, which isn't important.
I've tried to identify this font myself, and I've tried using WhatTheFont! and Identifont, but, to no avail. The guide here also linked me to Type Navigator at typenav.fontshop.com, but that appears to be down.
I’m doing a project for my MA in Communication at ESAD (Escola Superior de Artes e Design) in Porto, Portugal. The theme of the project is Italian Graphics during the period between 1930 and 1960. I need your help to try to identify some of the typefaces used in some of the publications (see attachments) that were printed at the time. Many thanks in advance.
I’m designing a book (cover and inside) for a friend. It is WW2 shipwreck story, and the author really wants to emphasise authenticity. I thought using a font that was usual for newspapers in that era (at least for the cover, but maybe through the book as well) could be a way to convey this authenticity.
I have some scans of newspapers clippings which I put through WhatTheFont. (I’m a novice graphic designer, so my type history probably isn’t as good as it should be!). I don’t know how accurate WhatTheFont is, and maybe they don’t even exist in digital versions. Also, communication is the main goal here, so if I can find a good font that is close enough for the target audience to recognise it I would be happy with that as well.
