Can anyone help me find what font each of the titles for the film series?

    I recall someone had a graphic that had all the fonts on it. Was it you? @marketto007

    Usually typing the film title followed by "font" will lead you to the typeface used for the logo. I did the same thing for some of my fan art, and it worked every time.

    Good on you, @Murdock. I spent at least an hour trying to track that down.

    Thanks @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7, I spent around the same time searching as well. It was hidden in my portable hard drive. :))

    @Murdock, I should've looked into my hard drive too, but past searches for similar files in the past have usually proven fruitless so I didn't bother. Knowing my luck I'd rewritten the file name eons ago and wouldn't be able to find it anyway. ;)

    I originally downloaded it to my old laptop three years ago, I guess I forgot to bring it over to my new one. Never Lose Files Again. ;)

    I found the image above very helpful but can someone direct me to the names of the fonts in each of the title sequences? Not just the logo but the titles themselves.

    Thank you Property, for investigating. I'm not turning up much in my own inquiries.. I'm obsessed with movie title fonts and they would be very useful in a personal project.

    FRWL – News Gothic
    GF – News Gothic
    TB - Franklin Gothic
    YOLT – Plathorn Condensed OR Teen (VERY CLOSE)
    OHMSS – ITC Franklin Gothic
    DAF – Futura
    LALD - Neue Haas Grotesk
    TMWTGG – Helvetica
    TSWLM – Helvetica
    MR – Helvetica
    FYEO – Helvetica Bold
    OP – Helvetica (A close font for the United Artists Presents title card is “Borrego”)
    AVTAK – Helvetica
    TLD – Helvetica
    LTK – Helvetica Bold
    GE – Helvetica
    TND – Helvetica Light
    TWINE – Helvetica

    Many (if not all) of the fonts can be discovered by searching the Bond title followed by "font."

    Yes, but that wasn't what Dikko was looking for.

    For the uninitiated, it comes from the BBC comedy show Look Around You:

    A couple of days ago, I found out that you can get the Archangel Chemical Weapons Facility, USSR font from GE (which I learned is called Marseille Serial) and it can be downloaded for free, completely legal.

    For the Special Editions a lot of the movies use the font Compacta.
    YOLT uses Aachen Bold Plain

    And FRWL SE uses Grecian-Bold.

    I like the logo on the Scandinavian comic strip magazine from the 60s/70s.

    I wish there was a Bond equivalent of this charmingly nerdy Dr Who design:

    Thanks, @PropertyOfALady! I'd seen that one and it is excellent - I just like the way the Dr Who design only shows the typefaces, no titles, but nerds will know what's up.
