Looking at Trendy Type – Big Rich Atlanta

I’ve been watching a program called ‘Big Rich Atlanta‘ which airs on the Style channel. In the first episode of the first series this type is used on-screen at 21:14. As soon as I saw it I wanted to know which typeface it was.

Here is the image I put into whatfontis.com and myfonts.com

I am absolutely in love with Phi Caps but it’s really expensive so I won’t be able to use it for my website unfortunately.

The site tells me that ‘Phi Caps is a geometric all caps typeface designed on the basis of the golden ratio. Its simple monoline letters come together in a solid font.’

Since I can’t use this particular typeface for my site I will look for some other similar typefaces. Here is another piece of type used in the program. I put it into whatfontis.com and myfonts.com

I thought I would do another search to see the different results. Here is the image I put into whatfontis.com and myfonts.com

I thought I’d try one last search and see what results I would get. Here is the image I got from the program.

I put the image into Photoshop to change it to black and white. It was more difficult than usual because the background colour is quite dark. Here are my attempts:

In the end I used HDR Toning which I’ve never heard of before.

It was pure luck but changing Gamma made the image into a cleaner black and white image.

Conclusion
I’ve found some really nice, trendy typefaces here. Later on, when I’m choosing a typeface for my site, this post will be useful as I will be able to come back and pick one or two. At the moment I like the ones that look most like Phi. I’m also liking Rimouski Light. I’m not sure those two typefaces would look good together mind you. Selly is another possible choice.
