Typenovas

I don't want to make a habit out of posting random designs, but I figured some of you may take take some enjoyment in seeing this. I took several letters from my typeface Baran and made these abstract illustrations. They're like type implosions.

Typenova I features /a and /e.

Typenova II features /g, /s and /x.

Typenova III features /y, /d and /i.

Interest in type, typefaces, typography and fonts has grown far beyond the graphic design community, yet few truly understand how and why these vital components of design are created and applied. This exhibition, organized by Monotype and designed by Pentagram for the AIGA National Design Center, celebrates 100 years of type as a constant influence in the world around us.

I am currently working on a project to identify a kind or style of typography that is used for a specific application or has a cultural association. I am working with the use of interlocking or connecting letterforms and scripts that often appear in Italian industrial design but specifically on espresso machines.

client's brand used for final output


Apologies for the low resolution of this image. focus on the upper portion of the logo, thank you.

So here I am having a client for my final output for a course in my university and we agreed on the rebranding of the logo as being like this image up here.

my problem now is what "C" can be best similar to this? (See the center of the top portion of the logo.)
- has a ball terminal
- more or less constant width throughout the stroke of the "C"

I am trying to have the look that the "C" that will be used in this logo will be the one that will be used for the brand name as well (since it also starts with C; both words to be exact.)

In addition, I'd need a second type that will accompany the primary type (for touchpoints and other deliverables)

World boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko is attempting to deal a knockout blow to illiteracy through a unique fundraising initiative – and Monotype is in full support. Klitschko has punched 26 letters to create a font, which is now available for free on Linotype.com. Monotype has optimized the fist-painted font to ensure clarity and quality.

All proceeds from the voluntary monetary contributions will go to the Klitschko Brothers Foundation in partnership with German charity organization BILD’s “A Heart for Children” charity http://www.ein-herz-fuer-kinder.de to combat illiteracy internationally.

William Morris was a key artist in the second half of the XIX th century through the pre-raphaelites and the Arts & Crafts and had a vivid influence on the creation of private press. Some typographers and calligraphers asserted they followed the path of Morris. Among them, find at least three names of early XX th century typographers: the American Frederic Goudy, the Austrian Victor Hammer and the German Rudolf Koch.

Do you know other typographers under the influence of William Morris, by the way?
Thanks in advance.

Hey, My buddy wrote a great post on the history of type on the web. Thought I'd share.

Hi all,
I'm working on a farm to table restaurant design. But it will be more than a restaurant, with packaging and food products down the line.
I'm looking for a slab serif that has some light, somewhat feminine qualities. The brand I'm working on has a light feel to it, and I don't want to use a thick slab to move in on that.

I know lots of designers deride archer as overused, but it's still stands up.

Just wondering if anyone knows of a slab serif that has multiple weights that could have similar qualities.

Hello,
my name is Krzysztof Stryjewski and I am graphic design student from Poland and I would like to tell you about my master's project - typeseeing.
Typeseeing is meant to be a guide, collecting voices and thoughts on local typography from different parts of the world. If I receive enough answers, this small anthology will be published and everyone whose text is included in the book will receive a copy.

If you like project's idea and want to help me, please follow the video link below.
I would not only like to hear from you and see yours answers in this publication, but also would be very grateful for any support or sharing news about typeseeing in the world.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

What is the future of Type specimens? are people still designing type specimens to go in emails or to be delivered on the door step? Whats the future of Printed Type specimens? are they of any use to type setters any more?

Hey all.
Type Finder, a project I've been working on for quite some time as part of my senior thesis, launched today. The website asks viewers a series of questions, and based on the answers, displays a list of typefaces that match the requirements/feel/use.

I thought I'd reach out to other people interested interested in typography through this forum to promote the project (hopefully it is helpful to people looking for some new typefaces) and get some feedback and suggestions from anyone willing to share their thoughts!

Cheers!

Hello Everyone,
I lam curious to know who designed the original Azkidenz Grotesk typeface published by the H. Berthold AG Foundry in 1896. Gunter Gerhard Lange was not born untill 1921.
Thank you

Hi,

I've been working on my first typeface for the past 2 and a half weeks.

The idea was to create a type inspired by the Bauhaus letterforms but adapted to modern times.

With styles good for Display ("regular" and "bold") and others good for Text ("book" and "book bold").

I haven't set the kerning yet and there's still plenty of work to do, but I wanted your opinion about what I've got so far.

THANKS!

Hello everybody,

I've been reading a lot about typefaces and how different kinds can be combined in order to create layers of meaning. Type foundries usually suggest pairings for their own fonts, most notably Hoefler & Frere Jones and Font Bureau. I am looking to create an unusual mix of moods for a personal branding project:

- Hearty, friendly
- Weird, quirky
- Contemplative, dramatic

You can think of this mix as the equivalent of a Wes Anderson, Sylvain Chomet, or even a Spike Jonze film. Sort of like what film critic Peter Rainer writes about Spike Jonze's film, Being John Malkovich:
“It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.”
