I really like the brushed black & white font used during the intro to HBO's 24/7 series. Any guesses as to what it might be?

In response to Phil's answer, 'Impact' isn't quite it. Notice the 'C' and 'S' characters, how the Impact curves are squared off, whereas the 24 7 font curves are more rounded:

    Could you add an image or link so we know what you're referring to? Jan 22, 2011 at 0:33

    In addition, a dedicated font identification service will probably do better than here: new.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont

Looks like Titling Gothic, black.

  • @Jin- Think you nailed it. (Though the 'R' in 'Road' has a straight leg, unlike the 'R' in Pittsburgh and unlike Titling Gothic, so that tag line might be a diff font). Anyway thanks- great font!

I'd say Impact Bold Narrow or at least something just like it. Their version of it next to the specimens I see looks like it's a little lighter in weight, but still in the Bold range, and definitely Narrow.

  • @Phil- It's close, but see the edit to my question above- not quite it.
