James Bond Font
James Bond posters appear to have been modeled based on a typeface called 007 GoldenEye. 007 GoldenEye is a fancy, various font created by Jens R. Ziehn and initially published by Film Himmel.
007 GoldenEye Font Features
007 GoldenEye contains 68 glyphs and 2048 units per EM. The typeface comes with 1893 ascenders and 19 descenders. Its maximum advance width is 3741 while the maximum advance height is 2048.
007 GoldenEye has no kerning or fixed width. But the font makes up for these limitations by its remarkable scalability.
As with most fonts, 007 GoldenEye was originally released in the normal or regular format. And as the time of writing, there’s little information that the font designer has created additional styles and weights. However, 007 GoldenEye’s single format supports a slew of characters.
They include UPPERCASE letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. The special characters range from basic punctuations to currency symbols, and letter-like symbols, to mention but a few.
007 GoldenEye Font Applications
007 GoldenEye is a fancy font. That already speaks volumes about the nature of design projects where you can apply this typeface.
It would look excellent for designs where the primary aim is to captivate the reader’s attention. You can use this typeface on your store signage as a way of stealing the spotlight from other similar retail outlets located in the same vicinity.
The font would also suit book, magazine, and newspaper covers. Any passerby making contact with a publication whose cover bears 007 GoldenEye would want to stop by and check out what’s inside.
Most fancy typefaces also tend to be remarkably legible, and 007 GoldenEye is not an exception. Thanks to that legibility, you can use this typeface in designing your company logos, business cards, movie posters, and even flyers and brochures.
Needless to mention, 007 GoldenEye is perfect for both display and fine print. To make the most of this typeface, remember to pair it with another exquisite font. You could use 007 GoldenEye as the display font and deploy the other font for body text, or vice versa.
