What is this font on David Guetta's T-shirts?

"Its the way you love me - I wanna go crazy". The same streaky-paint style font is used on the David Guetta album, "One more love".

Try a font identification site such as myfonts.com/WhatTheFont –  lawndartcatcher Jun 25 '12 at 13:10
    
I doubt this is a font. If you look at the 'A's for example, you'll see that they're different from the others. It's probably customly painted for his shirts. –  poepje Jun 25 '12 at 13:48

@poepje: It's a font all right -- out of the four "A"s, for example, three are exactly identical. It does seem to feature some variant glyphs, though. (A common trick for all-caps fonts like these is to repurpose the lower-case letter codes for variant forms of the capitals. That might be what's done here too.) –  Ilmari Karonen Jun 25 '12 at 15:20
    
You're right, I see now that the white A on the far right is just a mirrored one... :p And the W for example is scewed down vertically.. (This does make it hard to identify a font by WhatTheFont and such though..) –  poepje Jun 25 '12 at 15:24
    
I had the exact same thought. Since the only case where two if the same letters are different (rather than transformed) is the lower and upper case Ts, I'd bet this is a font. But literally every letter has been transformed. I think this is one of those cases where a designer thought they'd save time by faking it: but I bet separating out every letter and tweaking them all took longer in the end than doing it for real with real paint or vector brushes would have –  user568458 Jun 25 '12 at 17:14

Found it! It's Levi Brush by Levi Szekeres:

The font is free for personal use, but commercial use requires the author's permission. I also found this comments page on the dafont.com, where the font's author writes:

"The Guetta guy didn't bothered paying to use the font, but probably it's not his fault, he must have some ignorant designer. Ironic, if you think of all the copyright issue the musicians have these days."

Good work :) and I know a lot of david guetta haters who'll enjoy getting angry at that fact about the font licensing. If the font designer sends the label a cease and desist I recon they'd quickly offer a reasonable settlement –  user568458 Jun 25 '12 at 17:30
