    Top Gear Font?

    Hi,

    I need to find the Top Gear font. Like the one they use at the start of the program and on the credits!

    I THINK it's Arial Black, italicized. Arial is very common, but the italic throws most folks. I've been making DVDs of the shows and I can't tell it from the original logo.

    You mean the SPINNING GEAR?

    You could fudge some areas to get the spinning wheel without the Top Gear text I suppose. I'll see if I can make it without the text. 8)

    Hi m8 thanks that's brilliant.

    However I cannot find that Helvetica Neue font anywhere, at least for free.

    Does anyone happen to be able to link me up?

    Thanks a bunch

    There's a clone version of Helvetica Neue called Helonia Neue... just Google it, but it's shareware so you'll only get one weight of the font most likely.

    That shouldn't be too hard to play with in Photoshop.
    I had to make it a raster 'cos otherwise it would've just reverted to arial or whatever.

    Also, fun facts about the fonts discussed:
    Helvetica is Swiss
    It's also used on Apple computers
    There's a documentary about it
    and it's a favourite among typographers.

    Arial is a cheap ripoff of helvetica
    commisioned/developed? by Microsoft because they didn't want to pay for the Helvetica rights
