Black Panther Ambulance

Posted by Scott

Everyone knows the Black Panthers had awesome graphic design skills but who knew they could also paint emergency vehicles with the best of them? National Geographic aired a documentary about the Panthers tonight and in it they showed this brief shot of the most amazing ambulance ever, part of the original Panther’s “People’s Free Ambulance Service“. In reality, this was probably just a standard issue ambulance from the period, it simply had the Panther’s placard in the window. Still awesome. The cross enclosed in the square is classic and orange/black/white color schemes never go out of style.

Can anyone name the font? I’m guessing something like Akzidenz extended? Sound off in the comments if you’ve got it.
