Hi people, does anyone here has a font called Compacta?
Is the one they used for the hives logo.
I've been looking for it, but so far nothing...they sell it at 200$ :P

Still doesn't work, the site just leads to another site where you have to buy the font. I did find several other fonts that closely resemble Compacta, but they're still commercial fonts and have to be paid for.

However, with the right settings, you can create a very similar looking text style using Arial Black. I've made a sample which I've attached below, and you can pull the settings from there should you wish to do that (hey, it's free). It looks almost exact, except for the H and E (the middle line is a bit lower than on Compacta).
