Real Life Fontlympics

While we were busy running the Fontlympics out of the San Francisco office of FontShop, our Berlin colleague, Lucy, traveled to London to witness the real games. Lucy was kind enough to take some shots of the typography she spotted.

As expected, Gareth Hague’s custom typeface, Headline 2012, dominates the signage, though a bit surprisingly even shows up on the jumbotron (below) in animated LED form. It wouldn’t be a British event without Johnston  making an appearance on the wayfinding signage (above). Just as likely, Gill Sans Ultra Bold finds its way onto the daily program, but the Germans do manage to sneak in with some Futura (below).

Did you go to the London 2012 games? What typefaces did you spot?
