Modern

Portello and Paget

Forums: 

Greater Albion have just released two new families on Myfonts and Fontspring.

Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces. It's a family of three 'all capital' faces. A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic - with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text - which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look. It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility. It's ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.

Logo Design - cutting edge, modern, smooth, efficient

Forums: 

I am working on a logo that has two words in it, both starting with the letter "S". While I can't disclose the name, it is in the entertainment industry (film, interactive, gaming, etc.). I need to make it look "cutting edge, modern, smooth, efficient." Fonts that come to mind include: Bank Gothic, Neo Sans, Klavika, Square 721. So far no luck using these. Could you please give me input on fonts that fit the above criteria? Thanks!

Two New Releases From Greater Albion

Forums: 

Here are samples of Greater Albion Typefounders' latest two releases, which have just launched on myfonts.com and fontspring.com.

Paragon is a display Roman family of nine faces, combining elements of formality and fun. It embodies a high degree of contrast between near hairline horizontal strokes and bold vertical strokes. The family is offered in three widths and in regular, small capitals and title faces. Use Paragon to lend impact to your next design project.

new font I am working on....

Forums: 

Hello everyone,
I've been working on a font for a while and I want to take it into a development program to become functional.
However, I want the shapes to be as refined as possible before offering it to the world.

Please be critical, I am taking all comments into consideration.

If you'd like a closer view of a letter or letters please ask and I can attach additional files for critiquing.

Thank you

Mynaruse Royale, an expansion of Mynaruse with script capitals.

Forums: 

Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.

Now for Something Completely Different

Forums: 

Remember those 1970s science fiction dramas which had such charming 'futuristic' sets and backdrops? Remember the intriguing 'future' lettering and signage the set designers would devise-often coupled with interesting 'futuristic' spellings? Movella, Greater Albion's latest release, is something of a new departure for us and is a family of three typefaces inspired by that design ethos. The three faces- regular, italic and the 3d solid form - are all capitals faces which combine a feeling of 'retro-futuristic' design with easy legibility.

Movella can now be found on Myfonts and Fontspring. Here'a sample of it in action:

Needing a good, cool, modern Serif font

I'm working on the logo & wordmark for a company that will be based online (it's a music service) and aimed at Churches, primarily older and smaller high-churches, like Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Lutheran, etc.

Currently I'm using Proxima Nova or Gotham in the mockups (anyone want to weigh in on why I should pick one over the other?), set in all-caps, but I'd like to see something that looks a tiny bit more traditional. I'm thinking some slight serifs or something. Normally I'd try to solve this with a slab serif like Adele or PMN Caecilia, but it ends up looking too tough, and most serifs just look too boring to be used for an online music service.

(x) Sans serif - similar to Futura - Myld {John N}

Greetings,

I have been trying to identify this font for the past month or so, but I can't remember where I grabbed the original screen-shot from. All I remember is that it was from a British site (maybe?), and that the designer had other similar typefaces, and logos that he had created using the same fonts.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
