I recently bought some cosmetics for my best friend’s birthday. I wanted to know what NYX stands for so I looked it up. Their UK site says:
‘Nyx (Ancient Greek: Νύξ, “night”) – Nox in Latin translation – is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of other personified gods such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thánatos (Death). Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.’
I think it’s a great name, really catchy. I love their logo. So clever to put these two fonts together.
So what font is it? Here are the results from myfonts.com
Here are the results from whatfontis.com
Sadly I can’t name one font that is a good enough match. The closest to the N is Compur and Ecliptic -BRK-. The closest to the YX is ParaCaps and Planetary Orbiter.
