As per your rules for font identification, I've followed the requirements for font-identification.
Here are the find-a-font site I've tried.
- WhatTheFont! (Attempted)
- Identifont (Attempted)
- Serif Font Identification Guide (Not a Serif Font)
- What Font is (Attempted)
- Fontspring Matcherator (Attempted)
- Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5+ Font Match (Attempted)
- FindMyFont (Attempted)
Where the font is from
The font is used on an information sign from Calaveras Big Trees California State Park. Here is an image along with cropped variations that I used on the identification sites.
Other helpful information
There is a possibility that it is hand-drawn, but from my analysis, it looks very consistent. Also, I would expect the State Park service to have a scalable way to produce signage.
Here are the resources I've searched through during my google-searches:
- Wikipedia entry: List of public signage typefaces
- CA State Park Brand Style Handbook Jan '07
Note: I would have posted the links, but I don't have enough reputation.
