I love kinetic typography, and the latest video by David Guetta, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YO9THtRWb2s uses it in an interesting way. Instead of just using text as a 2D element, they've made text a part of the environment.

Could you guys please help me out with the various fonts w/ typefaces used in this here? (images linked)

I've added the images in this imgur album link, http://imgur.com/a/8Fz8U

Thanks in Anticipation :)

-1: This question does not show any research effort. Screenshots would be good. – e100 Oct 18 '11 at 10:30

Yea, or at least specific times when the texts appear. Youtube even allows you to get the url to specific time in the video. I'm gonna give this minus as well. – Joonas Oct 18 '11 at 10:49

@Lollero Wow, I've totally come off as an asshole when I come to think of it. Sorry guys, I should've made an honest effort. Will get to it right away. – Ameen Oct 18 '11 at 16:39

I wouldn't spend so much time in finding the particular fonts.<br> Use pages like these to find similar fonts: - dafont - fawnt - abstractfonts - or fontsqirrel – ueberkim Oct 26 '11 at 10:30

Try running some of these through new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont – Johannes Oct 27 '11 at 0:32

I am 99% sure the font in picture #9 is ITC Avant Garde book. Many of the fonts displayed in these pictures looks made by professional. Try google either Linotype or ITC. Perhaps you´ll find something there.

  1. Looks like a tightly tracked Avant Garde Bold Oblique:

  1. Could be either Avant Garde again or a Futura Bold, hard to well with only three characters:

  1. Looks like Eagle Black, tightly tracked with the counters removed:

  1. Unknown, maybe someone else will recognise it.

  2. Hard to say with only two characters, looks similar to Gotham or Proxima Nova. I'm going with Proxima Nova simply because H&F type tester isn't working properly:

  1. We've already had some Avant Garde, so it's likely suspect here:

  1. Eagle Black again:

  1. Unknown.

  2. Avant Garde again:

#8 looks an awful lot like a heavy, rounded version of Clan. And I'd say #5 is definitely more likely Proxima Nova than Gotham—too lazy to double check, but I don't recall the shoulder on the h in Gotham tapering that much towards the stem. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Jan 2 at 16:30
    
@JanusBahsJacquet Not sure about Clan; the lowercase 'h' is slightly taller than the uppercase 'O', and has a slight angle on the ascender. Pretty darn close otherwise. It's certainly unusual; the lack of contrast and extreme weight and condensed forms are suggesting Knockout to me. Unfortunately the Hoefler & Co's type tester isn't working at the moment, so I can't get screen shot to confirm this. Given that Knockout might have been used for #8, it could also be a candidate for #5. – Dre Jan 2 at 17:00
    
Yeah, just checked it now that I’m actually at the computer and have the fonts to look at. I don’t have a rounded version of Clan, but if #5 is supposed to be one, it’s one where the angle on the ascender has been removed. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Jan 2 at 17:19
    
Testing with Gotham and Proxima Nova, it also seems I was misremembering—there is that much tapering on the h in Gotham, but the h in Proxima has more space between the stem and the leg. Comparing side by side, it looks more like Gotham Ultra than Proxima Nova. (Also, I just realised this question is three years old!) – Janus Bahs Jacquet Jan 2 at 17:21
