Identify this font from the movie Runaways
September 8, 2010 10:10 AM   Subscribe

I previously asked where to find the shirt that DF was wearing in The Runaways but that didn't quite work so I'm looking for some sharp eyes to help me identify the font that make up the bridge shaped words San Francisco on her shirt so I can try to make the logo myself.

I understand that the font won't be shaped like the bridge (that's my job later). Here are some pictures of the shirt.

Thanks for helping! If I can find the font and make the logo, I'll post it up here after wards in case anyone else wants it too.

It's not a font, it's simply a logo. The letters were specifically designed to be the shape of the bridge, not designed to be a font/alphabet you can spell words from.

In other words, I don't think the person who made that vintage 70's shirt used a particular typeface. I think the whole thing is hand drafted.

Here's a knock-off on eBay.

If it was in fact a real 70s shirt, it definitely would have been hand-drawn.

Ha ha, $13 shipping. Draw it by hand, there are plenty of references and angles.

It took me awhile, but I did finally make the logo up - PM me if you want the svg version.
