  • I believe that's the true type font I designed for .Net, former Scout site, quite a few years back. Put it up on a thread for anyone who wanted to download it. You can't really use it to write any letters, however it works great for photoshop stuff.

  • Nice try 652, but IIRC, that font was introduced at the same time as our last major uniform overhaul, early in the Holmgren era. I remember Aros posting about it. He knows a bit about fonts and stuff, being a graphic artist and all.

    The actual font, or wordmark was designed by Verlander design. Husband and wife design team. They also designed the Falcons, Texans, and Cardinals fonts, which are a very similar style to the Seahawks. I'm talking about the true type font, that you can install in your computer, thus get this font style in word processing documents. I used some font building software to create the true type font, quite tedious, because I had to create all of the letters in the alphabet, in the Seahawks style, when they aren't readily available, lower case as well.

    One way to find out if this is the ttf font I created, look in the file properties, should have a created by and date.

  • lol. I'm an art director in the video game industry so that pretty much puts me into the nerd category by default.

    and yes my desk is covered in action figures.

  • Can this thread please be moved to the multimedia forum? It would make a great resource there.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

    Would you happen to know the font for the names on the new jerseys? The closest I could find is College.
