What font is used in this logo?
I need it asap :)
Some people might know, most won't, but the website of the Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands had an overhaul. Most fancy about this is the overview of their archive, which includes a lot of high-resolution type and lettering material. It is a bit of a search, but there are some real gems to be found and is perfect for lazy browsing on a lazy sunday.
Next to this, I wonder if some people might know of the origin of this type:
It's used by Johannes Enschedé around 1760 as a companion sheet to an etching.
A link to the larger page:
I'm a graphic designer, and have decided after reading so much on the subject to finally roll up my sleeves and start dabbling with type design myself. I've chosen a simple, upper-case, sans serif display face meant for poster work to start with in order to get myself acclimatized with the process. The results so far have been plenty satisfactory, and I've had a blast fleshing out my type with punctuation, numerals, and accents.
Am I wrong to think it should be "type" when I hear/read "Web Typography"?
Or even when others refer to Typography when it comes to the typefaces on a site?
In 1962, the Dutch "Institute for Normalization" (NEN) published a guide for proper letter designs, both a sans and a serif. According to Middendorp,
The official digital version of the NEN 3225 alphabets has been made available at the type production Visualogik in 's-Hertogenbosch
("Dutch Type", p. 299).
Are these fonts somewhere available?
I would love some critique/feedback on this logotype I'm working on. It's a for a game with themes of retro laundrettes/laundromats. It's worked up from sketches into illustrator, but I haven't been able to put the amount of time I would of like to at the moment. Anything would be great!
Sometimes a surprise, sometimes as expected – MeM is an interactive type system with a wide range of individual personalities.
The eccentric experimental type system created by Elena Schädel and Jakob Runge in 2012. It produces many personalities, each individual and emotive. You will never know which of the alternating letters is going to occur next. Basically, at the heart of it all is MeM: four different weights and letter shapes melded together into one powerful font and shuffled with the sleek usability of OpenType.
I heavily modified a letter from a typeface and will be displaying it on my site as a portfolio piece. My questions is, would this be considered "lettering" or "type"?
Looks very Swiss to me, except the G, any ideas? Thanks guys!
This is for a logo for a design studio. http://imgur.com/a/9gdj4#1 Going from left to right there's 4 pages. Please tell me which type looks best here and what can be done to refine it at it's best.
The ones in dark using a 4HB pencil are the ones Id like to choose from, but let me know what is suitable and whatwould be the best way to refine it if it needs any.
The Fine Press Book Association is offering prizes for the best text families and titling faces designed by a student during the 2011-2013 academic years. Winning and runner-up type designs will be featured in the Association's journal "Parenthesis" and the winning titling face will be engraved and cast in foundry metal by the Dale Guild type Foundry.
I was just confirming if this type which is "fridge pal" in the link http://i.imgur.com/5aSF6.png is almost similar to the NO movement type which is http://www.dafont.com/n-o-movement.font?text=fridge+pal . The guy who created the "fridge pal" type tends to disagree with this and thinks it's just a teeny bit similar.
thanks for any all comments.

I am new to design and was wondering how to decide what size the body text should be when creating a book. Are there any methods or rules to work it out? Or is it just a matter of preference depending on the font?
Would like to figure out what this typeface is but have no idea where to start. Found it used on a project by Studio Newwork in New York.
Need an ID in the larger type.

For Immediate Release:
Alameda, CA - May 24th, 2012
Delve Fonts releases Oktal Mono, a new typeface by Joachim Müller-Lancé and Erik Adigard.
A monospaced type family composed of entirely mono-linear and modular structure, Oktal Mono first began in a design-philosophical discourse between Joachim Müller-Lancé and Erik Adigard of the design studio M-A-D in Sausalito, California. The typeface later came to life as a design experiment wherein a type designer (Joachim) and a graphic designer (Erik) collaborate each in their own capacity, from within their respective disciplines.
The person who originally made this logo file did not create a vector version. That, or they won't give it to us.
Need the tagline font only — "& bake shop." Please let me know if you have any ideas or know of anything similar. Thank you!!!!

Hi Guys any clues what this might be? Futura or something?
The multi-disciplinary design studio, Kapitza will be joining us at St Bride to talk about their working processes and inspirations. They will discuss their profound fascination with fonts and where ideas for these are found and how they are subsequently pursued, developed and refined. Their extensive Geometric and Organic collections, for example, have been realised as published books that illustrate and explore the diversity of the font collection.
They will also share with us their experiences of the ins and outs of self-publishing, the creation of pattern fonts, how to start a font foundry, designing an app, book design and working with a worldwide audience.
Can anyone help me out with the 'Join Us' typeface and the 'to become a member' typeface? Thank you!
Would anyone be able to identify a typeface found in an Australian magazine, 'Yen'?
