  • Can anyone name this font?

    I have a client that loves the font that Callaway Golf uses as seen here. He's real particular of matching this font. I went to www.whatthefont.com and www.identifont.com and a variety of other websites but was unsuccessful.

    Can anyone help?

          Looks a lot like Old English text or plain

            You see the little (R) thing - that usually tells me it's not going to be easy to copy elements of their brand and legally trademark it - especially if your client is in the golf industry. I'd have the client pick another font and not try to match it as precisely as possible. It's very likely a custom calligraphy anyway. Their mark is pretty much just relying on the typography save for the little geometric golf tee artwork below it.

              If it's the feel of the font that your client likes (or can be persuaded that that's what he likes ), you can search on myfonts.com for Blackletter fonts, which is the basic style being used here.

              However, yes, you do need to be careful about trademark infringement issues.

                Yeah, I keep giving him "blackletter" and "old english" fonts, but you know clients. When they get their mind stuck on something . . .

                Well thank you everyone . . . I think I'll just tell them that I had it sent to a professional typographer and they found out that it was custom created for that logo and there is no such font

                Thanks again!

                  Remember that some old companies like that, are probably using a custom font. Many years ago, their designer created their logo, and possibly created the type style from scratch. There might not be an exact match anywhere.

                  Tell the client that it is a trademarked, propriatary font, and that you don't intend to violate the copyright laws.

                      I don't think I'd worry too much about local sign ordinances and colors.
                      That is why logos can be created in black and white. If the community insists on a certain type of sign, it is easy enough...

                      When I tried to open the .ai file in Adobe Illustrator 10, it displayed an error which states, " Adobe Illustrator file format is having difficulties " What should I do for the problem?
