    Default propaganda poster fonts...help!

    Anyone have any suggestions? I have one that might work, but am needing more.

    I went looking through google images of old propaganda posters from WW1 and WW2, but can't seem to find a satisfactory match in dafonts.com or 1001fonts.com.

    Thanks in advance!

    It's more of a style than an actual propaganda piece. It's a self promo piece with text that says "ideas that take flight". So far it has these light bulbs with wings in "V" formation like fleeets of planes going across a sun burst sky with a skyline over filled with city scape. The text is to skew off the bottom of the piece.

    If you are looking for something with a soviet propaganda look, try agitprop, soviet, nyet, or russian.

    A san serif like these, this should be easy, but for some reason I am being very picky.

    Try posting in the font identification forum at www.typophile.com
    http://www.typophile.com/forums/mess...tml?1102265970


    They're really sharp, often identifying a typeface in less than 10 minutes. And they do all the work for you. I've used that forum about a dozen times with almost a 100% sucess rate.
