What's this font?

Post by osyu » Tue Jan 02, 2018 10:48 pm

Can anyone ID the font used in the Sega Harmony magazine logo? This is a bit of a challenge, because of how low-res the image is. I have tried separating the letters and using several websites but I haven't been able to find a good match.

Here is the best image of the magazine cover:

The font doesn't need to have the notch on the left side of the H.

That detail seems to be pretty much the only distinguishing feature in your font sample! :o

That is an incredibly bad scan.

About 30 seconds of searching on the internet turned up this image of a different issue.

The font is reproduced at a better resolution.

I found that one, too, but I still couldn’t identify the font. :(
