Rather quick photoshop job at the GB lettering so I can make parts of my GBSim game have authentic titles.

Anything to improve on? Let me know.

For the C, you could make the serifs similar to how they've been depicted on the G, and you could use the upper section of the R to form the loop of the P.

That being said though, something I've had on the boil the last year is a digital font that's as close to the original typeset as humanly possible (using the original 1984 logo, with additional influence from the more streamlined version used for Answer The Call. I hadn't released it yet as I was hoping Afterlife would provide some new reference... But that doesn't appear to be happening.

So unless they use the original font on the non-teaser poster, I'll probably release a copy of it pretty soon.

...and after making such a big deal about finding the original type kit at Sony!

Very overdue follow-up post with the revised C and P letters.

So here's a test of the assembled font typed for this as a comfort image for someone on Discord.

Some letters got separated or too close but it's kinda fixable. Might get into numbers or other markings if interest is high/resources for such are available.

Hey Kingpen-- did you ever finish and release this sweet looking Ghostbusters font?

I've have put hours and hours into finding the original font, but apparently it exists no where. Would love to try out your font if it has been released! You rock.

It's in a beta, typeable version, though I feel it's still in need of tweaking. I'd actually started preparing a preview recently to get people here involved in refining it. :)

I'm not overly fond of the Q.

Is that from an 'official' source or was it-- as it appears-- made from pasting together an O and an I?

I'd like to see something thinner, more flowing, and tapered for the curlicue.

More like the Q in fonts like Korinna or ITC Korinna.

It's not a hyperlink because the forum software doesn't recognise the code you're trying to use.

You have to format links with the url tags, like this:
Code: Select all
