Looks right but it is too sloppy. The outline in my image are all the same weight. The Sans Serif Shaded looks ike it has been generated from a Illustrator trace.

Yes, you are right...
Sans Serif Shaded (Stephenson Blake) existed before computer fonts became a reality.
Letraset offered it (transfer lettering -- “gnuggisar”), it’s listed as “Sans Shaded” on page 4 in this PDF:
http://www.sanskritweb.net/fontdocs/letraset.pdf

All those were of good quality, like your sample.
But the only digitized version I knew of is the one by Dieter Steffmann, and... with a quality just like you described it :(

Ok...thanks for the info! I’ll have to redraw this logo for my customer then if it doesn’t exist like a font at all.

Just for the archives: Pizzadude made a grungy version called Ultinoid of it.

Brendel Informatik has the Shadowone (1994) which is the perfect match for your sample.

After being sued by Fontshop in 1997 Brendel Informatik was liquidated and made a new start as The Quick Brown Fox which is still selling the Brendel (Softmaker) fonts, including the Shadowone: http://www.qbf.de/dceng.htm . Click S, then Shadowone. At $ 39.95 a lot of money for a ripoff. Fontsmonster thought so too and made it free; the designer collection, page 10.

the ShadowOne was directly copied from Castcraft’s Optifonts (which costs MORE than $77) so it’s a BARGAIN -- HA-HA!

Dieter Steffmann’s version is practically unusable

Aren’t then most of Brendel’s (QBF) fonts copies of Opti ...

philippedada:

the Designer Fonts are ripoffs of Opti, Robert Schenk (Ingramayne) and a couple of FontBank

Anyway, the whole Brendel/QBF designer collection is on fontsmonster. Just one spider and done ...

Thank you, koeiekat and Philippe, for Shadowone - and the info about other related things! I have missed all that.
