Selvam,

It looks like the typeface in the wordmark is a version of KABEL.

It could be the ITC version or another. The original was designed by Rudolf Koch.
The face I see on the page is a geometric humanist sans.

The sloped eye on the lowercase E and the pregnant bowl on the lower case A are giveaways. What I think is the clincher on this is the lack of foot on the lc B.

Look for KABEL on one of the font sales sites. One thing to look for is how tall the x-height is which is a sign that the face is an ITC version.

Hope this helps.

Selvan,

ITC Kabel should do the trick. It's available from the Adobe store and others.

I've always pronounced it "cobble" - but a Czech site with an audio
pronunciation pronounces a Czech word spelled the same way as Cah'bell
- same emphases as 'cowbell', (not with a schwa)

If you're in the neighborhood, how do you pronounce "Kabel"?

KAH-bul (that second vowel is a schwa sound).

The logo looks like the ITC version of Kabel, with its exaggerated x-height.

Cheers,

While I don't presume to know the English or American pronunciation of the name of this typeface in the 1920s and 1930s, Rudolf Koch, the resoundingly German designer of Kabel, passed on the German pronunciation of the existing word (Kabel is German for cable, as in cable car or a telegram) as applied to his creation to successive generations of German typographers.

The word is KAH-bel (where the e is the same as in bell).

It can also be legitimately referred verbally as cable , the English translation of Kabel.

Just my two cents.

As a journeyman typesetter who learned the trade in Freiburg, Germany, I remember being told that Koch named Kabel after a trans-atlantic cable (maybe the first?) that was installed around the time that he created the font.
Does this make sense?.
Regards, Wolf.
