Hi Etienne would something like that be OK? The bullet points were unfortunately lost in translation but that's an easy fix:


I'm sending you the rasterised type file on your email via "wetransfer".

Thankx Chris !

now a stupid question from me..
how do i take out the text in vextor format ?
i opened in photoshop and in illustrator, but its both raster..

or do i need to trace it ?
(as you can see that gives not the desired result  :-\)



An Ully , its still in the good place i think, since this is called "True Type advice needed"

So every time someone needs a advice in a font, this should be the place

Maybe its a good idea to create a topic with only the correct types for the text needed, or something for a wiki or knowledgebase..

I didn't know you needed a vector format for this text, I thought a transparent .psd would be all right since you don't have to edit the text.
The only way is then indeed to vectorise the font but as you could see the result is terrible.

So I found 2 fonts that were a close match:
Helvetica Condensed


Swiss 721 condensed


I went for the swiss.
I sent you 2 illustrator files via email (one with the text vectorised and one with the text editable) + a zip with the fonts in case you'd need them.

Allright, one for the morning  :)
Helvetica Neue 75 Bold.
Sometimes you have to play a bit with the spacing between the letters to make it fit perfectly but that's definitely the right font.
