Adobe InDesign/What's this font?
What is this font and where can I get it? It's on this page:
Scroll down - you'll see the big red letters that say POWER (business and technology for the global generation industry). What is the POWER font?
Thank you for your question.
The font is a Sans Serif, bold or black style font.
At first glance it reminded me of the font Revue, but when I compared the two - Power is more rounded.
I looked at a pdf document from the Power website and analysed the fonts they used. The logo when used in the document must have been in eps/pdf/jpg form so I couldn't see the exact font used.
However it could be - and is quite likely - that they created the logo by copying a similar style font and changing it - like the bit on the P and R that don't connect to the rest of the letter.
This can be done in indesign by choosing a font that matches as closely as posible. Creating an outline from it and then tweaking it like a graphic box with the pen tool and merge/unmerge elements etc. This ensures a unique logo, while also having a font that links to it to use in the main body of their websites or documents etc.
Some fonts on their website/documents that they could have used to adapt into their logo -
Bauhaus 93 - if you sharpen/straighten some of the edges.
Helvetica Neue Black
Other smiliar options
Futura - bold.
Some of these fonts could already be on your system if you have an Adobe package.
If not some free fonts can be found at various sites such as - http://www.1001freefonts.com/
If you are wanting to use certain fonts for commercial use, some can be found here - http://www.1001fonts.com/free-fonts-for-commercial-use.html
I hope that has helped - sorry that I can't give an exact name of the font - while I could find some fonts that had a similar style to one letter of Power, couldn't find one that fit it exactly.
I'll keep looking and post a follow-up if I find any more etc.
If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask.
Thanks H Louise
