Typophilers, would you care to post your latest typefaces (and perhaps some soon to arrive)? I'm looking to expand my toolbox in no particular direction.
Hopefully to exist in four weights sometime this summer.
Fiasco. Soon to arrive...
From soon to not so very soon:
Trying to finish it. A few more "next" "some day" samples here
OK, I got some Kind-a noive posting my type designs in this company... These's no getting around the fact that I'm at the type design greenhorn stage. I may or may not ever get around to releasing some of the typefaces I've got on the go - eventually...
any hoo - Mean time:
Clearly still in need of work.
Jos, I just wanted to let you know that I'm really looking forward to Museo Sans. Although I'm hesitant to name any one typeface my favorite, Museo definitely ranks up there, and I find myself going back to it in project after project.
Was that Museo I noticed on the Tony Awards?
None of them have any kerning (I didn't get to that point on any of them) and I think I suck at spacing, everything's always too loose or too tight… also, I'm just now beginning to grasp contrast control and I still haven't given a real shot at figures… anyway, they're all work in progress from someone still learning and practicing. So, in chronological order:
Sorry for spamming such large images, but I wanted to show them up close…
Ruben…you really need to space those and release them. Because they’re gorgeous.
Ruben, I agree with James.
Other James, I checked, and I'm pretty sure that it wasn't Museo during the Tonys. The serifs are different (look at the S).
This is a pointed brush script that's getting close to completion.
Agamemnon still needs some tweaks, but I expect a simple version will be ready to go shortly after I complete an equipment upgrade. I have a bunch of other projects on the back burner too.
Jos, I just wanted to let you know that I’m really looking forward to Museo Sans. Although I’m hesitant to name any one typeface my favorite, Museo definitely ranks up there, and I find myself going back to it in project after project.
Thank you Eric. That's really great! For Museo Sans I'm also planning an italic, so it will take me longer to finish, but I expect to release it this year.
@ Ruben: Nice work!
Agilita is my latest design and released by Linotype.
Some of my current work is displayed below.
Just released: Capsa.

Dino dos Santos
They are all very, very much in progress… It’s just a matter of (a lot of) time.
Well, thank you James, DrDoc and Jos! :)
I've been starting to pay attention to scripts, and I really like these. Particularly Stephen's.
BTW, Dino, don't you need an intern or something…? ;P That's another great typeface.
Indeed, a great thread!

(needle-scratch sound effect)
Now I’ll have to figure out what it actually is.
over on the critique forum:
Tom, There is already a very well known typeface called Utopia.
Great thread. Promoted to front page.
Yeh I know, designed by Robert Slimbach. It is my final year design project, it aint going to be released.
Orbe Pro. Just released at ">www.Fountaintype.com[img:sites/default/files/old-images/textSetOrbe_6524...
Another fellow portuguese typophile! I won't write in portuguese so as to not let anyone out of the conversation.
Rui, that's really great. Was it inspired in something in particular? In some way, it does have a certain portuguese feel to it, but I don't know what it is or why I would feel that.
Just curious. I'd like to see those originals.
Dino: I gave your Leitura a hard time a while back, but there's no secret that you are very talented. I like Capsa a lot. Dstype is bookmarked.
Thanks for your comments.
It's a fact that sometimes I get over excited with ligatures,
but that's only my baroque side expressing itself :-)
Here are links to a PDF sample and the font page at Veer for my new design Memoir. Its not officially a web release as yet (those haven't been updated since March), but it is in the printed catalog and buried in the collection.
ps. I'd post an image here, but I'm at my day job presently.
I got to know this forms mainly in old portuguese books I found, but they come from inscriptions on portuguese monuments of "estilo manuelino". Their are very beautiful actually, and i think that the baroque way that these calligraphic forms, tending to the uncial capitals, are composed together (and not as page capital) is very portuguese. We can find this forms carved in some monuments but I would like know more, maybe on "Forais" we can see good examples as well.
Pieter I love love love to ∞² your work. One of my favorite fonts of all time is your work for KPN... those bastard. :-)
I’m really diggin’ your Caponi too.
Please keep us posted!
Mike Diaz :-)
Obrigado, Rui. I really should pay more attention when visiting monuments… :P
Your Stanley Stencil is my favorite so far. Really nice work!
Engrez -- Regular + Bold.
Sorry, yet an another boring squarish sans in his way.
This is Router, to be released very soon through Village.
I have typophile to thank for all the people I met through here, and all the great feedback and support I've gotten.
A little spacing work is left to be done, and intermediate weights will be interpolated...
She's still having some plastic surgery done, but will be beautiful in no time. Lots of work to still do.
Check her out in the critique section also: http://typophile.com/node/43499
JLM> Michael Abbink has typeface in the works also named Router:
Arlo, that lowercase alternate for q is HOT.
I saw a sample of futura that had one and fell in love.
Just released at PSY/OPS, Exemplar Pro:
I'm working on pencilPete, a handwritten font:
Satya - that's nice and clean, and the text is about Brimham Rocks; 10 miles north of where I live.
This is a Latin typeface I have been working along with my final degree project here with the Dalton Maag. Since my project is about a few Indian scripts I thought It would be a good idea(from the learning point of view) to work on a Latin typeface simultaneously.
Btw, where is your studio in London?
Brimham Rocks is not 10 miles north of London - it's in Yorkshire ;^)
Well, these are my ‘projects’:
the first one, pince-nez
the second is a font I designed for a project promoted by my studio. We designed an illustrated version of italian Costitution for the 60th anniversay (and, well, maybe the last one). We needed a font to print the text at small size. I'm planning to finish the font and add an italic. (Images of the big illustrated constitution, are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gramme_design/)
Pince-nez is nice too!
This is the Typophile thread to end all threads. Very inspiring.
I guess this will run forever. The mother of self promotion.
Kind of hits my inferiority complex, tho. Ruben’s fonts are so pretty I’m tempted to get a job just so I’ll have work to use them in when he releases them!
