Does anyone have the font used in the LiD logo -- or know what it's called?

I made that logo years ago and have long since lost the font. I really want to make the logo bigger and sharper but I can't do it right without the original font. I could use a different font, but I've grown accustom to the original look.

Please help!

Looks like "Lucida Blackletter" to me.

Maybe Bold, or Outline, but letters L, D, i, r ,n are definitely similar...

I'd concur with PlonkIt's diagnosis. Too many common points that are unusual not to be LucidaBlackletter. It looks like it has been modified by an art program of some type. It sure looks like something similar to fonts changed to objects with Orange fill and Yellow line.

Cucullin's suggestion, with Red/Orange instead of Orange/Yellow:
(PhotoShop, LucidaBlackletter, OuterGlow/Emboss).
I guess thats closes the topic :P

Lets see Wunder's version.

This is one of those 'projects' that have an infinite number of possibilities. I thought the one I did was pretty lo-res as I was pretty sure that Wunder doesn't use InDesign and I don't use Photoshop for text work. Main question will be "Does Wunder have LucidaBlackletter ::?:: " I've just sent a copy by email, but I'm not sure if it was a font type that he can use (I'm a Mac ::!:: )


Test Huge = 200


Large = 150

Normal = 100


Small = 85

Tiny = 50

Got it. Can't seem to use it though. I don't think Mac-->PC fonts are compatible. I did find a PC version. Going to test it out tonight.

Cool! Just... one comment... you think you could smooth out the edges so they aren't so jagged... that stuff just bothers me...
