"Highlighted" Font
0

Hi All

I am working on a project that requires a highlighted font.

like

http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/fontfont/ff-dynamoe/

It needs to be repeated on screen by an editor hundreds of times, so cant manualy draw the box behind it.

Basically looking for a sans serif, similar to

http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/hamburger/neutraliser-sans/

I guess my other possibility would be to edit a font in Font Lab myself. Just wondering if anyone had undertaken something similar?

Cheers

Duncan

Which kind of program will the editor use?

As for possibilities, maybe:

Hi Riccardo

thanks for the tip

The editor will be using Final Cut, which doesn't like much type trickery.

Don't know much about FC. But it sound strange that it hasn't an option for setting reverse text.

Sometimes you will find fonts that have a "cameo" (reversed) weight... For example,

Fiendstar Cameo

Blitzplakat

However, be warned that searching for the term "cameo" on a font website will bring up fonts called Cameo as well as fonts with cameo (reversed) weights, and even some fonts with no reversed weight at all! So you will need a bit of patience...

For example, here is a search for "cameo" on FontShop's site.

A search for the term "reversed" (on the same site) also yielded some results.

I hope this helps!
