What font does the National Theatre use?

Discussion in 'Font Forum:' started by theorganisedmess, Apr 22, 2010.

  1. Specifically, the main font on the website used for the words 'National Theatre' and the cloud of links at the top of the page. :National Theatre homepage - National Theatre
    Would be a great help if you guys have an idea?

    That would be helvetica neue / helvetica / arial / sans-serif font stack
    no idea which of those you are seeing. :)

    I'm looking at Helvetica, but I can't really tell the difference between Neue and regular. But it's Neue lol, because I have it installed either way :)

    windows will default to arial as helvetica isn't installed natively :)

    Helvetica Neue on mine.

    Font stack - font-family: HelveticaNeue, HelveticaNeue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;

    What do you mean that fonts not installed natively don't show levi?
    How else do sites like flippingtypical work

    you're misunderstanding renniks

    helvetica (especially neue) is not installed on windows unless we install it, therefore it's not a native font. Arial is the 'replacement' on windows and why it's part of the font stack, it's also the reason mine is showing as arial, I don't have helvetica or neue installed on the pc I'm viewing it on :)

    Last time I checked flipping typical works by accessing your font's installed on the pc and showing them to you in your browser :)

    I thought you meant everyone on windows would see arial as helvetica isn't installed natively (which I didn't quite understand)

    And after reading it works by checking if there is any dimensional changes to the default font, if there is you have the font, if there isn't you don't.

    Flipping typical always does a crappy job at finding custom fonts here :confused:
