I was wondering if anyone knows where the sail on the lowercase t originated from.

I get that its an attempt to unify the t into one stroke, but is their anymore to it than that? Why is the sail on the left? Why does the stroke begin at the right and move left (opposed to the left --> right motion we use to cross our "t"s and "f"s)?

(not too strange)

Yacht name font

Hey Typophile,

First post, thanks in advance. Looking for the font that this "Rose Tena" yacht name is made of. The image above came from a photograph, I cut it out of the photo and straightened it so it was vertical. The yacht is in the Midwest region of the USA. The lettering was applied with vinyl decals, and I would venture to say that it was done within the last 10 years. The unique part about this font is the "T". If we can identify that, I believe the rest of the font will follow. It feels like it has a spanish, or latin flair to me. Your help is greatly appreciated, as I have been tasked to use this particular font on another project.

Thank you,


Happy Sunday typophile board!

/edit: Sorry everyone, realized the name was in the CENTER of the image. Too many design finals have fried my brain.

But if anyone knows where the lower case 't' came from in the middle

-or- the foundry that produced 'Fadeaway' typeface I would be much obliged

There's a custom typeface being used in the Coles Supermarket catalogues and pamphlets called "ColesHPBeta4" which can be seen here


in the text "Mediterranean Style Lamb Shanks with Seasonal Vegetables" on pg 1 and more on pg 2.

I was wondering if anyone has a clue as to who designed this :s

I found this in a PDF. I am confused.

This J looks quite strange. Any ideas? It this fine?
