Hey, Fonts experts...
« on: September 03, 2008, 10:56:47 PM »

Looking for a special font. One that'd be similar to this one :

Any ideas ? Who knows... Maybe someone here has seen a similar font...

Thanks a lot.

(Am trying to help a friend with a CD launch... Doing the Press Release etc.  :o)

hmmmm... Thanks a lot vixay. Found a few scribbled fonts, but not very nice and readable... I'll keep searching... :)

Thanks a lot.

Although there are many similar fonts out there, I have to say that it's silly to use a font for this. Maybe I'm overestimating typical artistic talent, but anyone should be able to do something like this with a pen and then scan it. If you really can't pull it off on your own, send me an email at - removed email - and I'll whip something up for you.

You guys are fantastic. Really.

nnnslogan : that's a VERY generous offer.
First I'll just talk with the composer as he might be satisfied with something that's just "close enough". But, really, THANKS.  :up:

 ;D ;D ... Yup, maybe you are overestimating typical artistic talent...  ;)

Sorry, I would try to take screenshots of this but I once installed a keylogger program that would minimize the window when you close it but it was buggy and when I removed it, it stayed installed so now whenever I switch virtual windows, it would re-open my closed applications and it's really messing up Screenshot Captor for me on this PC. I couldn't find one as close to what you want but here's the ones that are slightly similar based on my fonts collection. Note that all these appear more organized than the one you submitted just like the image from the replier above me.
