I am currently working on a project to identify a kind or style of typography that is used for a specific application or has a cultural association. I am working with the use of interlocking or connecting letterforms and scripts that often appear in Italian industrial design but specifically on espresso machines.
I'm looking for this type or something like it. Strong, bold, has some character and age to it.
Is the "illy" typeface handwritten or an actual typeface? If it's an actual typeface, what is it called?
