Type Specimen

n.


an unusual typographic experiment designed to explore the relationship between graphic design, typography and the reading of a page. [it] collects the responses of 70 international graphic designers when posed with the same brief – to design and lay out the first page of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, a text chosen in part because it directly references lettering as Pip searches for clues about his family from the letterforms inscribed on their tombstone. The brief encouraged the 70 contributors to explore, challenge or celebrate the conventions of book typography. Each layout is accompanied by a short rationale explaining the designer’s decision-making process.

It is the printing on a wringer machine out of the 1950ties. I am gonna to restore this and before sanding out the printing I want to either conserve it or know what font it is to reproduce it with a transfer folie.
The text passages are very few: "33/55"
and "Miele"

Fictional magazine covers from Blade Runner... as shown in the blade runner bonus feature "Signs of the Times: Graphic Design". The covers were created by production illustrator Tom Southwell in 1980-1981 and appeared in the background on a magazine stand in the city streets.

My lovely girl died

I tried posting this on my personal blog/site and it crashed in a really nasty way — repairing that is going to take ages. As well as other things.

The thing is: my girlfriend passed away on July 7, on the 52d day in hospital and care — a second brainstem stroke proved to be unsurmountable (is that a word?). I don’t have words for how I feel about this (and somehow I still have to share…).

So now I am designing cards and ads featuring ‘her’ font: National Light (are you reading this, Kris?).

I have been trying to locate this font for a client to recreate a logo for them.
If anyone can help with this I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks!

Hello everyone! I recently started this new design blog (3 months ago) and I'm glad to share it with you guys :) The blog is about logo designs, both creative and design-rich logotypes. All of the designs is featured from dribbble. I mainly started it because of my love to logo designs, that's actually also how I came up with the name "Logo Crush". It now has a capacity of over 250+ design-rich logotypes (and counting), to inspire, learn from or simply to enjoy!

Also Statut will fit within projects with a potentially high cultural and historical significance.

Webadvanced

Once again the sensibility of Paolo Roversi inspires me drawing my letters. These photos are from an old Ferretti ad campaign (1998 I think). The characters are from my „Webadvanced“ font. A thicker but meant to be elegant character which I’d love to keep some elegance and liveliness even in the smaller sizes on monitor. What a hard way to go!
I am listening to the beautiful semiclassical music of William Orbit.

I Like this font very much but I am not able to see where to get it and what is the name of this font. As you can see the style of A, K, M and W I am not able to get it.

Please help

Here are more images showing composition sticks, type cast slugs, matrices, and press views showing the workings of the R.Hoe & Co. handpress, rods and springs, toggle, bar and platen. The three composings ticks are a standard hand setting stick, a straight Ludlow roman stick and a centering stick. Views of the centering stick with matrices show casting side and top of Eusebius open 36 point brass mats. More to come.

The Press at Deerbrook

This a turn of the century R. Hoe cast iron press approx. 22 by 29 platen with a rack and pinion instead of a rounce , and the platen has been thickened for rigidity making it quite strong and reliable. The Cincinnati pres I worked on, in the attachment, an earlier model had a thin platen with large fin braces could still print a large folio the size of a sheet of Roma handmade laid.
Also attached are some cases of hand type from the bank, galleys, and a form.
The sideways galley has Ludlow lines in it. I'll correct it at some point.
Please note; you can control click on large images to open in a new widow if need be.

Ludlow composing sticks

Here are some sticks showing matrices in line and a specimen sheet, not sure if it will appear large enough, but will scan anew if need be.
The fun in the Ludlow is the setting or composing is much like setting cast type or foundry type by hand in a composing stick. one gets to adjust word space and some letter space and ligature mats are available as well as some swash.

Europe is in a crisis! Countries are in doubt. How much power do we lend to the European Union? What is the value of the Euro? Do we have to suffer for other countries problems? What if we step out of the EU, and just fend for ourselfs?!

It's a crisis indeed, in which there are alot of short term visions and 'solutions'. Surely you can just drop out, but what about the future? Europe must remember that we are not the only economy around. You can fend for yourself for a while but in the end you must compete with future big economic powers like China, India and South America.

What Europe needs to survive on a long term is a solid platform. A strong network with clear guidelines that stimulates trading, but with the countries remaining their own seperate identity.
