Please can someone identify this extremely high contrast Didone with rounded terminals on the capital S and G used in the Christie's magazine designed by Spin as can be seen here:

I have included some attachments here too...

Many thanks.

Hi does anyone know any modern English typefaces.I know of Baskerville and Calson but need something more modern for a project.

I know this falls under "modern" faces, and my best guess would be Didot. It would, though, be nice to be confirmed or else find out the correct face.


I was wondering if someone can ID this font that I found in a magazine which I would like to use for my work. It resembles Alba a little bit, but it is not Alba

Didot? Shaded?


I have two questions concerning the typeface the upper part of the text, i.e. "NO.357 | L.17", is set in:

1. My best guess is that it is Didot. Am I right?

2. Irrespective of the answer to the first question, what keyword should I be using when searching for typefaces with lines running through the strokes of characters as in this sample? I thought "shaded" would be a good starting point, and it indeed got me some good results. Could you suggest any other keywords that will get me typefaces similar to the one used in the image?


hello typophillians -

shocking ampersand?

Hello typophiles.
Do you find this ampersand shocking or OK?

< image below edited : version n°2 >

thanks a lot (again)

First spotted here in an article for Gemma O'Brien on LetterCult.
I don't know whether to describe this as a slab or transitional serif, either way I'd love to know what the name of the actual font is.

Any ideas?

working on a project and an actual font would really help. let me know if anybody knows this bad boy.


Hey guys, found this on a Flickr group and can't seem to identify the typeface. Found a close match with Hellenic Wide, but the G isn't quite right. Any ideas?

it's far from finished:

the weight between characters is still a little uneven, and some letters i'm not sure about. i was thinking of scrapping the g and starting on a two-story g (along the lines of johnston, akkurat etc.)

i started by wanting to create a grotesque striped down to its simplest form by removing unnecessary terminals.

This is driving me crazy! I'm sure it's something really obvious. The lower central bar of the E and B reminds me of art deco fonts....Any help will be greatly appreciated :-)

Overload font?

Does anyone know the name of the font "overload" is written in?

Hey everyone. This is technically my second font, but I'm a newbie by all means.

This is a rough look at what I'm working and I would love some basic feedback especially for any pitfalls that I should avoid now and in the future.


I realize that the spacing isn't perfect yet. also if the image is too small to critique let me know and I'll post a better sample.

I'd like to share and get feedback on a set of capitals I have designed for a client work, maybe it will see the light of day as a font. I'm calling it Exotique, and it's a Modern Display Serif. It is made to be seen at big display sizes.

Cheers and thanks!

Anyone seen this guy around? I can't put my finger on where I have seen it.

I need help finding this font.

I think it is called "Air Force", and there is a maple leaf glyph, so it is probably somehow associated with the Canadian Air Force.

However, I can't seem to find anywhere to buy it online.
Searching for fonts with the keyword "air force" results in stencil fonts and airplane icons.

Any help?

Modern Sans Serif

These are scans from a tri-fold brochure. I was trying to identify this typeface but cant find a match.
I tried My Fonts and Identifont. Closest thing was Din, but there's a lot of differences.
The G,C & O definitely do not match. Please help.

Oh, also the left of the B got cut off a little, it's the same width as the I.


You may recognize this as being the First Edition of Moby Dick printed in New York 1851. I am hoping to source typefaces that are from the period that have a very close DNA.

Monotype Modern seems like a logical relative but I cannot find anything condensed/compressed enough.

Your help on this is greatly appreciated.


P.S. Please omit the conjunction "OR," from your type identification.

P.P.S. My apologies if I am not using the word "Transitional" properly.

I know i've seen this all over, but can't figure out what it is exactly...

Can be seen here in the navigation buttons and "LIVE COLOR FULLY" (I think they're the same?)
There's also a serif font on there which I can't figure out.


I'd like to ask you for help with identifying the typeface that's used in the Serpent logo on the company's website In case it somehow doesn't work here's a picture:

Available here:

I'm tyred of looking for a typeface even similar to this and nothing. There's no Bodoni or Didot that is exactly like this one. Can anyone help me here, please? Thanks in advance.

Hello fellow Typophiles!
My name is Jordan Bell and I have been working on this Sans for about 3 months now. I study graphic design and typography at Abilene Christian University as a junior and have taken an Intro to Typography course. I realized at the beginning of this semester that I am hopelessly obsessed with typography. So, I started drawing! It started with sketches inspired by fonts such as Info, Dekar, Titillium, and Klavika. I then decided to try to learn how to use Fontlab Studio 5. After reading lots of reviews, tutorials, and blogs, I started drawing in Fontlab and Illustrator. In other words, I am a beginner.
