Tiny sample, distorted and only 2 letters. My 2 cents. It could have started its long hard life as…Benguiat
The consensus is that this is custom type, probably based on Avant Garde
and as such, is still an open, unresolved ID.
does anyone know how to use the ornaments of this font, i load them onto the MAC and they dont show up anywhere in photoshop?
To my knowledge, that depends on the OS version your running.
10.6 or earlier, the Character Viewer (System Perfs>International>Go to input menu and turn on character palette) allows you to select your font, view all available glyphs and double click to insert them.
System versions after that have 'broken' the character viewer, so you cannot select the font your using, so, either set your type in Illustrator using the Glyphs palette and place your text in PS using the usual tricks (cut n paste or save the set text as an AI and import it into PS as a smart object or whatever)
or… third party character viewer likePopChar
I believe there are fixes, like using the 10.6 Character viewer as a stand alone app in later versions, but you'll have to google this for clarification.
(Apple strike again with 'improvements', bless 'em)
Customised and should be on your PC already.
I suspect this is handmade, rather than a font
Originator has it as a logotype.
Could have started life as this…
I seem to lurch between LHF, Hydro 74 and $10 depending on how much beer I've had.
