I tried to figure this out once, and I was unsuccessful - probably because I didn't have the exact font on my computer. It would be interesting to know....

The Georgia font is very similar, although not all of the characters have flat bottoms like those in the seinfeld logo.

Usually, we logo designers will start off our logos with a font, then alter each letter to make it totally unique (so we can justify charging thousands for it). Jimmy recreated this logo to make himself some T-shirts last year because Jimmy wanted the red and yellow colors on a white shirt. Jimmy seems to remember this actually turning out to be a non-italic font which was skewed diagonally, rather than an italic version to begin with. Jimmy doesn't believe there are any commercial serif fonts with such short ascenders, or lower case "e"s which are crossed as far bove the vertical midway point as is the case in this logo. Even if you found something close, it would drastically change if you simply clicked on an italic style button in a word processor.

Anyway, yada, yada, yada... Jimmy thinks he may have ended up just redrawing it from scratch in Adobe Illustrator. If anyone's interested, Jimmy can email the logo (an ".eps" vector file, which can be enlarged limitlessly without loss of quality) to them, or even better, upload it somewhere, if Stan can instruct Jimmy with that. Otherwise, if it's the "font" you prefer, for writing other words beside Seinfeld, check some "tv show font" websites. Hacks are always recreating Star Trek, Flintstones, and every other famous typestyle under the sun... but don't be fooled... most will only have the actual "logo characters" looking good, while the rest of the "guesswork" alphabet often appears very non-uniformed with the rest, and quite amatuerish. This site below has some so-so quality one's Jimmy's used in the past (but no Seinfeld yet). Bookmark it and check it ocassionally... or maybe write to them and request it. Very Happy

Well, the georgia font isn't as close as I thought it was.

For all you Seinfeld Fans, Gloucester MT Extra Condensed-- when italisized looks like the Seinfeld Font,, To make the i, you need to First set the whole Seinfeld Name to 72, then to make the i accurate, you have to select the number 1 reduce that down to 46ish then draw a triangle on top, then you can draw a circle to finish the logo off, If anyone wants to see it or, just copy it off mine,

I fell asleep reading Tyler's post, and dreamed that a font was eating me.

I know this thread is now eleven years old (cool, eh?) but in case anyone is still interested, the actual typeface is ITC Fenice Oblique. It should be scaled horizontally by 90%, and it should then look perfect! Very Happy

That's fascinating, fascinating. But could you do me a favor? Could you tape the rest of the "Seinfeld fonts and the women who love them" discussion and I'll listen to it next time I'm here.

I've got to find a Mohel.

You know what is fascinating? The price I could get you on a desktop computer. There's porn and stock quotes

Yeah, I told Siena how toilet paper hasn't changed in my lifetime, and probably wouldn't change in the next fifty thousand years and she was fascinated, fascinated!
