Typography for kids aged 4-16

Forums: 

Hi, I'm doing a project on "engaging the audience" and getting them to feel inspired and appreciate typography, My audience is 4-16 year olds. My aim is to try and inspire 4-16 year olds to appreciate typography and possibly enjoy it more. I've done some secondary research into my age range and have even tried to make typography attractive via means of colour and shape but i'm not really getting much feedback when i approach people who stop and look. I was wondering if anybody may have some helpful suggestions or advice?

Thanks!

Recommendations on hand-written typefaces?

Forums: 

Hey everyone,

I've been doing a year long typography project, and my limited selection of typefaces is making the project feel stale and laborious. I need some fresh typefaces!

I am particularly drawn to hand-written typefaces. Not script, so much... but anything that looks like it was written by hand. Fun, playful, fresh, etc... these are words I am drawn to.

Do you have any recommendations that aren't going to break the bank?

Look forward to hearing your responses.. thanks!

Completely redesigned a font I've been working on and released it for FREE on MyFonts. Check it out!

Forums: 

Hey guys! Just thought I'd share a font I designed after I finally got it up on MyFonts. I think I posted it on here a while ago when I was still working on it, but I've since redesigned it completely and added a lot more glyphs.

New font: Candelivers

Forums: 

Hi!
I'd like to introduce a new font. It's Candelivers.

Click here!

Candelivers is a fun and display typeface, for better use in short sentences, or letterings and logo designs. It comes with a several features, like swashes, alternates and ligatures. It has a little not simmetry between the characters that gives a personality and handmade touch.
Also it comes with a Glow version, to give more soft and fun personality. I hope you enjoy it!

Two New Releases

Forums: 

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released two new typefaces on Myfonts.

Eccles is another of our 'Early Victorian' typefaces, a series we started with the Wolverhampton family a little while ago. It might be described as 'extreme-Tuscan' in style but has a delicacy that many other Tuscan faces seem to lack. It's ideal for giving design projects a clear period feel, particularly in design and advertising work. We also see it haveing considerable application in preparing invitations to a certain type of happy event. At the other extreme, some of our younger associates have described it as 'your latest Steampunk font'. So perhaps we'll just have to settle on it having a split personality...

Two New Families Released

Forums: 

Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:

Corsham:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.

Metropole:

Beachy font from local burger bar - ID help?!

Need help to ID the font at the bottom of the logo (sort of a tag line). If the main name is a font, I'd love to know that, too (I don't think it is but I could be wrong).
Currently in use as a logo for a local Burger Bar.

Thanks in advance!

BTW, received a server error on the first attempt. If this double posts - my bad, sorry!

New Release - Leibix

Forums: 

Leibix, inspired by a jolly trademark of the past, is a fun family of five typefaces which transcends different eras of the past. It has elements of the 1920s in its design, but is equally at home with projects having a 1970s theme of an up to the minute modern one. Leibix is intended for eye catching cartoon captions, in posters of anywhere else a casual impact is required.

Greater Albion is offering Leibix at an introductory 40% discount on Myfonts.

New Release: Spargo

Forums: 

The Spargo family of six typefaces has just released on Myfonts.com and on Fontspring.

Spargo is inspired by 20s and 30s American typefaces, often seen on share certificates and other securities. We thought it was time to bring a touch of transatlantic boom and ebullience to our portfolio of typefaces, not to mention a healthy dose of Roaring 20s spirit. Spargo is the result, offered in six all capitals display typefaces.

Here are speciments of the six faces...

Greater Albion Launches Flapper

Forums: 

Greater Albion has just launched Flapper, a family of four faces on Fontspring and Myfonts.com.

Flapper is family which embodies a great deal of fun and more than a little spirit of the roaring 20s. If ever a set of typefaces could dance a high kicking Charleston, these are they. Flapper is offered in regular, condensed, oblique and outline forms, and they all bring a great deal of fun and life wherever they are used. The Flapper family (yes, think of one of those dancing 20s girls with a long string of pearls...) is ideal for casual heading, bold captions, poster work and anywhere else a sense of fun is required.

Bertolessi and Tulk's Victorian Banner

Forums: 

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released tow new Typefaces on Fontspring and Myfonts:

Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It's an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required.
