Estonia on Alias

On the TV show, Alias, on ABC, they display the city that the next scene is set in.

Estonia was one of the settings! Jennifer Garner’s sister got stabbed in the back in Estonia. Don’t worry. It wasn’t a good-natured Estonian who did the deed. It was some evil henchmen that just so happened to be in Estonia.

Since we have Tivo, I had Andrea rewind the scene to the splash screen with the reference to Estonia and I took a photograph. See banner.

The font they use is called Device. That’s the official font for Alias. They changed the styling on their logo a bit, but all the support material uses Device. My brother and I bought that font in college. We bought about 26 fonts for about 20 bucks. It was a great deal. We loved those fonts dearly.

Wow! Estonia! That’s cool. Do you think they actually filmed there?

Why did they choose Estonia?

Device? Yeah, we were the coolest when we bought those fonts. All we had before were some cheap rip-off fonts called “the serial collection” that had some greats such as “Bodoxi” instead of “Bodoni.” So when we bought this grunge font collection, which included Device, we were so cool. Years later, the art department at our college is still using those fonts.

Hooray for Estonia!
Hooray for Device!

wow. now i know why that font looks familiar. is it the same one that’s used on the IWU school of art website?

i like it. not the website [man, does that thing need to be updated!], the font.


I doubt they filmed here, because theres no such building in Paldiski as far as i know, and guy there(baddie) was russian not estonian;)

At least it’s nice that they thought of Estonia.


no argument on that statement;)
