  • I think it's a custom one - I've used all the font-checker sites I normally do (Whatfontis, Identifont,etc) but nothing found.

    If you look at the S characters you'll see that they're both different. That would be unusual for a pre-set font?

  • Aha, I didn't think of comparing both letters 'S'. Duh. Nice catch.

    You're right, that pretty much means it's custom-made. :(

  • I like the fact they're having to set everything with that bit more effort. Custom rather than off-the-shelf.

  • If you rewatch the trailer, it's handwritten text. It could be easy to recreate though, it's a little like the Madonna handwriting font in caps.

    Exactly! If it's not personal within lyrics this time, it is definitely dedication-wise in a visual, creative way... if that makes any sense to you at all.

  • The handwriting, or the labels on the site?

    The sans-serif on the site looks like Sofia Pro ...

    Yeah, I figured out the Sofia Pro font used throughout the website. It's the artwork that I'm curious about. :)

    There were some similar-ish ones when I was searching. I'll go and get some names.....

  • The problem is that many fonts have some letters spot on and others totally different due to the custom nature. So frustrating, as I think we've both found already!

    Ratate a few a bit and so close....but not close enough....or free enough.

  • It looks to me like the lettering is original hand-writing rather than a conventional font. Very arty and personal if I'm right.
