(x) Cavaillon Rugby Union Club and Finnish Rugby Union logos - ITC Machine, hand drawn {Jan E, Yves}

Hi everybody,

I'm looking for font used in Cavaillon Rugby Union Club, It's kind of "block" font that I often find on jerseys but still unable to identify it.
I'm also still looking for the font used in Finnish Rugby Union, that kind of Castellar with different shape of serifs.
All images are attached naturally ;-)

Best Regards,

New Alvar Aalto inspired font for critique



This is my new typeface project, inspired by attached image of Alvar Aalto's design for a door handle ("VEDÄ" = pull, "TYÖNNÄ" = push in Finnish). I fell in love with the unorthodox proportions of Aalto's lettering (which was of course made to fill certain width) and I have tried to keep that mood in my letterforms. I'm planning to include some alternative glyphs of different widths so user can more easily create words that have right amount of narrow and wide letters.

Though Aalto's Ä is superb, I couldn't figure out any decent way to make it work, so I just made up my version.

Any comments / suggestions are welcome!
