This is the poster in question:

And here is a close-up of the font I'd like to know:

I would like to know what font is used here. Most font recognition engines can't see the "E" without the "Vertical Line" so it's hard for them to identify the font. I've also searched around for similar futuristic fonts but most of them have "curved edges", for example:

This probably is a custom type based on some different fonts. The basis seems to be Neutraface N°2 Medium and/or Aramis Light or SemiLight.

Inspiration also seems to be taken from Revival and maybe even good old Futura.

Someone took the time to recreate the font though, you can find it here.

You can get a similar effect with most fonts by using a Greek capital lambda and xi, as in:

PΛSSΞNGΞRS

I know it's not entirely what you're asking for but you might be able to get a similar effect, if it's the effect rather than the typeface itself you want.

  • Nice. Though, this is similar to "Яussianizing", or abuse of the Cyrillic letter Я that probably annoys anyone who knows that Я is pronounced "Ya". Though in this case you're not trying to be indicative of Greece so it's probably not that bad :) – Wayne Werner Jul 19 '17 at 19:03

    @WayneWerner there might be an element of that, but I think that there's a distinction between this and what I would say was the Greek equivalent of Russianising, using Σ instead of E and Ω instead of O and the like (coming up with things like "APHRΩΔITΣ" for "APHRODITE") - the idea here is just the shape of the glyph rather than attempting to make something look generically Slavic or generically Greek... – Edd Jul 19 '17 at 19:08

    It may be worth noting that this may be problematic in computerized contexts—for example, if you used that on a website (like that, not in an image), a screen reader (non-visual browser for the blind) is almost certainly going to read it out as "Pee Lambda Ess Ess Xi Enn Gee Xi Arr Ess" and not "passengers." – KRyan Jul 19 '17 at 20:35

    @KRyan this is a concern, and one I hadn't thought of - would something like <span aria-label="passengers">PΛSSΞNGΞRS</span> solve this issue? – Edd Jul 20 '17 at 6:23

Whilst the typeface Revival (http://www.revivaltype.com/) is not the font used (the G is quite different) it is certainly similar enough (including the very unusual "A" and "E") that it might well be of interest to you.

In my opinion the title here is modified Futura, this image :http://imgur.com/a/HQWgy shows Futura modified into this mark.
