    Since that is a logo, I would very much assume that "e" was slanted manually – Cai May 4 '17 at 8:46
  • yes, but some typefaces come with letters already slanted – bookaka May 4 '17 at 8:53
  • there are some, but there's no specific category name if that's what you're asking – Lucian May 4 '17 at 10:15
  • Walter Tracy's famous book on fonts Letters of Credit calls it a lazy way to make a font distinctive, incidentally. I certainly don't think it looks good in extended text. – Copilot Oct 1 '17 at 22:38

I agree with @Cai that this is VERY likely a completely custom logo-type.

However ITC Kabel has a tilted e:

As does the free New Republic:

It's worth mentioning I think that the one-stop shop to duplicating that logo looks to be some kind of Helvetica bold, and a rotated e! In fact I just searched and this turned up Lenovo Font - Might be worth a try?

You cannot fault Saatchi and Saatchi for the work they put in rotating that e ;)

  • Thanks for the edit @Cai I'll include screen-grabs in future, very useful :) – mayersdesign May 4 '17 at 10:20

    No problem, yeh it's best to include some screenshots with font recommendations if you can – Cai May 4 '17 at 10:24
  • thank you @mayersdesign. that's right. well, i any case seems very interesting if the Foundries categorize this kind of style on typeface – bookaka May 4 '17 at 21:47
