i hate it when clients ask me what font I used for their logo. (cuz they're most often custom) But I'm trying to match up a font close to the 360 in the xbox logo.(i need to generate additional numbers that are identical to the 360 numbers) It's kinda Helvetica but not. (that or it is helvetica and I haven't found the right version OR they just widened Helv Neue Regular)
Most likely it was built from scratch but if it DID have a typeface that it was based on, anybody wanna take a stab at what that might be?
If you are doing the work for XBOX or MSFT, wouldn't they have that info?
- not something that would get put into a brand guideline.MrNibs
The font is called: ConvectionRegular.ttf

- that's xbox's font. not the type used in their logo. They no longer use convection.MrNibs
- i think that's the font used for publications and collateral - not what's used in the logobjladams
it looks like it was a slightly modified (or redrawn) Helv Neue light, no?
- The variations in the stroke weight has been removed.Josev
- "have" been removed.Josev
- it has a slight variation but i think it's a result of stretching the numbers width-wise.MrNibs
That "B" looks like it pulled it's belt too tight.
OMG, I never noticed the arrow in the logo! Between the X and the B.
- I think part of that was to make up for the negative space...I don't see an arrowmonospaced
