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?


neo-grotesque - love some feedback and criticism


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.

Feedback Please. Anything glaring?


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!


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.


Anyone Recognize this Pre-1850 Transitional Condensed/Compressed Serif Display

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.

Legibell: a semi-sans typeface


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.
