I am working on a letterhead suite for a friend of mine and the entire suite is beach/watercolor themed and I'm struggling to find a type that gives the soft, laidback feeling without being a bad display font. Any suggestions?
Hi, I'm looking for the name of this font. Please let me know if anybody knows what font this is, I appreciate all your help.
Hi all. This will be my first post on Typophile. I am very much interested in learning more about type design and it is my ultimate goal to design a few of my own. I already have some ideas floating around my sketchbook. Can anybody offer me some advice on how/where to begin. Also, what are some good resources (books, websites, etc.)? I am studying GD in school at the moment but none of my professors have ever designed their own typeface. Thanks!
Can anyone help? I love the elegance of all of them and the serif has a really humble feel. I'm trying to avoid using Minion Pro, so perhaps this could be a good solution. Other recommendations welcome :)
So this font was found on an old book. Having a real hard time trying to classify this font. I presume it's hand rendered with a calligraphic pen but i have no info on the origins or style of these letter forms. Anyone here got any ideas?
I've Been breaking my head trying to figure out what font is this. Every time I believe I've come close, Im so far off.
Since I cant post the whole picture because what I'm working on is confidential...I posted a few letters in hopes that anyone would be able to figure it out.
thanks in advance!
I am currently a graphic design student and I am looking to bring my typography skills/knowledge up to a higher level. I'd love any recommendations of must have books about type. Which typefaces/fonts are the best/most widely accepted and why, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I'm trying to use my mark as in an illustration, where I'd like the A & C part seem as if it was chiseled.
If I may say so myself, I think my A is quite okay. But the C is driving me mad!
I'd like to convey the effect in only two colours, and all the c's presented seems a bit off to me. Number 4, of course, is the most sketchy one. Just wanted your take on it, before I go on.
Hi, I'm looking for great fonts for a health, organic foods and juicing blog. Could you recommend some great fonts to use for organic food type that has the organic handmade look to it?
We will be doing different organic raw food recipes and juicing recipes and will be using different fonts to design on food photos. Some fonts I like to give direction are:
Bamboo Brisk Regular
I'm open to any suggestions and I appreciate everyone's support.
Does the world really need one more vernacular pop culture typeface? We here, at astroluxtype shout a resounding yes!
Sure, you can find the apex of fine font design that will have your mind and eyes burst with joy at the level of sophistication and craftsmanship they exhibit- Koo Koo Puff Condensed and Light Condensed are not one of those fonts. But if kooky goofy is your thing, we're selling it at the astroluxtype booth.
What are some of your favorite extended typefaces?
I prefer Reservation Wide, by Silas Dilworth. Right now, it seems to be my go-to typeface for extended type. Idlewild by HFJ is another favorite.
Obvious ones like Helvetica and Univers will probably dominate this list, but what are some of your favorite extended typefaces?
Hi I am working on a rebranding assignment and this is the current logo. I am trying to figure out which typeface or typefaces are being used for AIRE. I am wondering if it is different ones for each letter or a cheap knock-off, but any help is greatly appreciated.
Hi guys, can someone help ID this font? Or something very similar for a project?
I understand the split is probably achieved after the type is created, that's fine.
Thanks in advance!
I need help with an ID on this beautiful tuscan wood type:
Trying to identify this typeface. Originally considered it as a possibility for Times New Roman, but the "E" and "C" are distinctly different. The rest of the letters are so close to Times New Roman though, so I was wondering if it's possibly a variant of.
Sign is from some outlet store at a mall.
Thank you fo any help you can give!

I am looking for sources and suggestions on creating a font that demonstrates habits. For my final graphic design project, I have to design a typographical bookjacket for "The Power of Habit." Briefly, it is about how habits have the power to control and reform the success or failures of businesses, transform societies, and change our lives. The reaccuring theme is how habits work with a cue that triggers the routine, and finally what we gain from it. (Think of a continuous circle, and how habits pick up power by happening over and over again)
I am trying to use a process that can guide my design solution, but am having a difficult time with representing habits in my type design. Any place to start, ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
This great little video, The Top Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Fonts, from type designer and lettering artist Jill Bell, has ten tips to help you get to know, love and use fonts better.
The video was revised and abridged from a presentation Bell gave at regional AAF Conference. Bell has designed fonts for ITC, Monotype and Adobe as well as numerous proprietary fonts for companies. She has judged Linotype and the Type Director's Club's font design contests, and spoken worldwide including at many type conferences.
Very much a work in progress, but as a designer who regularly has to purchase/license type and other resources, I just fired up a blog over at dlio.tumblr.com to dig-up/share daily deals, discounts & fresh releases of curated/quality type & design resources. Check it out or follow @getdlio if interested, and of course... hit me with your thoughts/ideas!
