New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am pretty sure I once saw a font that had the same proportions and rythm as Akzidenz Grotesk Condensed just done by a slightly distraught hand. Maybe it is just in my mind?
If you know of any type that sort of fits this description do yell out.
So I'm doing this poster and don't want to hassle with finding the perfect wood type, but I want something with a little more character that's available in digital. I'm currently using Grotzec X-Narrow Bold with some mods, but I'm not set on it. Hoping to get some other suggestions to very condensed grotesques that look a little more like wood type with interesting idiosyncrasies.
Thanks for the help,
do you know this condensed font on the poster?
Vintage metal oil cans are much better than today's plastic oil cans like many other old things! It is more powerful, more impressive, more iconic. These days, the relatively few metal oil cans that survived that familiar pattern have become collectibles. These cans not only served as containers, they also gave oil companies one more opportunity to advertise their brand name and logo. These vintage cans are also really good source for reflecting power of "Public Gothic Family", Antrepo's condensed, vintage and industrial font family.
I'm doing some work for the Qantas Museum, and I'm trying to find a uniquely Australian font from the 1960's / 1970's. It's quite hard, there isn't much documentation of Australian typefaces online. If anyone could help I would be so grateful!
