  1. Hey Don,

    Thanks for the update. This was definitely a bit of a challenging fontquest especially with the customizations but glad to see it solved. I was mainly going by the straight sides of the “e” as the “n” was obviously custom. If it is Trade Gothic Bold then the “s” is also custom. Look at the upper counter in the “s”. In the logo it comes in parallel but not in the font.

  2. Reginald, I’m realising that I’m not a typography expert. The typeface wasn’t Uni Sans either. The “cloak-draped font enthusiasts” on the forum seemed to be at a loss, so I got back to Sander Dijkstra about it. He wrote: “I found it wasn’t Din after all; well spotted. The font that was used to custom-create the top part of the Essen logo is: Trade Gothic LT Std – Bold.”

    So, that’s settled. I’ll update the post shortly (for the third & last time – I hope!)

  3. Thanks for the feedback, Reginald. I believe you’re right, It does look more like Uni Sans than Din. Good catch! I’ll update the post.
