Fonts in Logo

This logo was developed recently and it has been unusually difficult trying to get an answer out of the brand agency as to what font(s) make up the logo they have developed. I have tried to match up a font but so far unsuccessfully.

It would be great if anyone could help me id the font in this logo so we can build some new creative inline with the logo design.

Thanks,
Luke

AIR FORCE font

I need help finding this font.

I think it is called "Air Force", and there is a maple leaf glyph, so it is probably somehow associated with the Canadian Air Force.

However, I can't seem to find anywhere to buy it online.
Searching for fonts with the keyword "air force" results in stencil fonts and airplane icons.

Any help?

Modern Sans Serif

These are scans from a tri-fold brochure. I was trying to identify this typeface but cant find a match.
I tried My Fonts and Identifont. Closest thing was Din, but there's a lot of differences.
The G,C & O definitely do not match. Please help.

Oh, also the left of the B got cut off a little, it's the same width as the I.

Thanks,
ryan

Pairing Sans Serif Font with Baskerville

Forums: 

Hello,

I'm currently designing a logo/brand identity for a friend's photography business. His business is called Knox Photography. Right now I've decided to use Baskerville as the main font, but am trying to find a good font pair to use with it. I really like Gotham, but am not sure if it's completely appropriate? I'm looking leaning more towards a geometrical sans serif font.

I've attached an image of a quick throw together of what I'm thinking of. Right now I'm purely focusing more on finding the right fonts than on the logos design. Currently the image is set with Baskerville and Avenir.

Any suggestions?

New Release: GT Walsheim – Swiss Geometric Grotesque

Forums: 

New Release: GT Walsheim

In its heart GT Walsheim is a geometric grotesk, but it also has a certain handmade roughness engrained in its design. Based on custom typography by Otto Baumberger for multiple lithography posters from the early 20th century, Walsheim is suitable both for display and for text use.

Custom Face For Logotype

Forums: 

Hello, I've been working on some custom lettering that could potentially be used for our agency's corporate identity (if it turns out good enough). I'm at the point where I've been tweaking it and staring at it way too long, and can't tell what's working and what's not. Any feedback on overall balance, consistency, weight, color, etc. would be much appreciated. I'm not a type designer, so please don't omit any obvious issues!

(Don't pay any mind to the words themselves. They are just randomly chosen so I'm not showing everyone who I work for.)

ARS Maquette PRO - NEW type release

Forums: 

It's celebration time @ ARS Type!

Along with the launch of our new website, I'm proud to announce the official release of the redrawn and fully extended ARS Maquette PRO !

Completed in November 2010, this new version however, is much more than an upgrade. Not only was it extended with two versions of newly designed italics and a generous amount of features & alternate characters — it was completely redrawn, refined and extensively spaced & kerned (with the extensive help from Igino Marini-iKern) to fully excel in all its applications. Quite certainly for text and even more so for headlines, by introducing a unique new Display cut for all weights and styles.

Matching English and Japanese Typefaces

Forums: 

I'm currently working on a project at university, trying to create a typeface in both English and Japanese that work with each other seamlessly. What Im curious to find out is;

- Your thoughts on the idea
- Any suggestions or recomendations
- Any really good or even really bad examples of these two languages at play.

Thanks for your help.

Plau! New font by Niramekko

Forums: 

Hey everyone, I'd like to introduce a fresh new face from Niramekko. Plau is the name and it's available at MyFonts: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/niramekko/plau/

The description:
Futurist typeface from the programming era, Plau is a sans-serif with rounded corner personality and interestingly deliberate lettershapes. Comfortable in headlines, reads surprisingly well in longer passages of text.

Also looks quite interesting on the screen.

Hope you guys like it.
Cheers
Rodrigo

Gothic (sans) and Gothic (Fraktur)

I have not been able to find out why san serif fonts such as Franklin Gothic are called Gothic. Fraktura and similar blackletter typefaces are also called Gothic. Can anyone point me to a book/text/site, where this difference — or similarity in name — originated? Or, may I hear from an expert in the house?
