Need to identify this font
I scourged through most of the threads here but was unable for find a similar font.
I need the name of this font or atleast a font that is similar to the above. I need to prepare some buttons for my website and need them to be small - all fonts I downloaded are either too thick/big or thin. Thick fonts are not clear when seen in reduced size and thin fonts make the buttons longer.
Thanks in arvance
I have not found an exact match [yet]. But the Jan Brady aka Jiffy [Swfte] might do the job.
Thanks for the response. I checked out the Jiffy font but its too thin to use. Also, its a commercial font and I do not want to try it til I am very sure.
Can you please suggest some free font that could be used?
I think you found the "wrong" Jiffy. You need the one by clonemaker Swfte, long dead and gone.
Well, this is of course not a match, not even near, but it has some of the characteristics: Hopping up and down letters,some sort of thick feel and free. I'd recommend some spacing between the letters.
The font is Porkys
Thanks again koeiekat - I googled swfte's jiffy and I am promptly redirected to one of your replies to a person who was seeking the same font - and it said - "he lives in italy". Guess I have to really scorch the web for that one..Will try it
Porky's is infact a very good match. It is almost perfect but the only downside is that the characters are slightly tilted at angles and often meet causing an unclear effect when used in a small button. The font which I wanted was also very similar but had a black outline which I believe helped a lot in making it clear.
Will try the porky's however once I reach home and give you a feedback
Had to go for a few hours but asking uncle for "jan brady" +font gave this at #5: http://www.moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/steffmann/ whicj will lead you straight to this: http://www.moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/steffmann/samples/j/janbrady.htm where you can grab the postscript font.
As you are making buttons making an outline should not be a problem - I think.
The outlines in the example are for Jiffy using the Jiffy Outline font and for the Jan Brady making the outline myself.
In the Postscript zipfile you will find the Jan Brady, the Jan Brady Shadow and the Jan Brady Contour. The 'Shadow will do fine, I believe.
Oh..that was exactly what I was looking for - it works perfectly for my buttons. Thanks a lot koeiekat!!
