    if im not mistaken didn't they just make the script for just Ragin Cajuns and Louisiana instead of doing the entire alphabet? it would have made far to much sense to do the whole thing so that they could use the scrip in advertising if they wanted to

    Check your spelling of Rajun vs. Ragin.

    Actually, there is no "official" font that exists. I am pretty sure it is typography which means the letters are really graphics that are made specially for the use of Ragin' Cajuns & Louisiana.

    designers are paid by the hour, so making the alphabet would not have been very feasible. I have heard a figure or two on that rebrand and it wasn't cheap

    Just curious

    Is this now copy written and ergo illegal for all to use this family of type???? I would think that it is and also should be available to all at a cost!!!

    Actually, I developed the font fooling around with a pencil in my right hand.

    I'm left-handed.

    I found the official branding fonts by searching UL Lafayette branding style guide a while back. It'll bring up a PDF with branding instructions and font listings somewhere in it, you can then search and download the exact font or one in that family. However the text in the "ragin Cajuns" logo isn't a font, its custom line art that has to be recreated. And since its line art only the letters needed are created not the entire alphabet, so I'm not sure which font or letter style your looking for.

    Dude! I just watched the Documentary on Bob Weir the other night. I didn't know a thing about The Grateful Dead, and I have to say, very interesting phenomenon. I ended up with "That's it for the other one" stuck in my head for a week.

    PS - would you some how send me that font, or whatever it is?

    A couple months ago my son told me the documentary was on Netflix and I watched it. I've been around the Grateful Dead since the 80's and never knew Bob Weir was adopted or the great story about him reconnecting with his father.

    As for sending you the font, I do not have a font to send. I did all this in Photoshop, so it is just image files and I only did the letters I needed for my graphics.
