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.

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.

FF SCUBA, a readable contemporary sans, designed by Felix Braden @floodfonts, is now available at Fontshop. FF SCUBA instantly conquered Fontshop's most popular font charts! Download the complete FF SCUBA type specimen as a PDF file at Floodfonts

The person who originally made this logo file did not create a vector version.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!!!!

Any clues? Probably basic

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.

What are these two typefaces?

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'?

Here is a link to the website it is on: http://www.yenmag.net/


Hi, everyone I´m new to this site
I have begun working on a proyect to promote tourism to certain parts of the world : London, Paris, and New York.
To this point I´m happy with the typographical approach we achieved with Paris and London, but I´m not happy with New York.

Can anyone help suggesting typography that would relate to New York city life?


I would appreciate it, if somebody could tell me which font this is and where to buy it.

This example was taken from fashion magazine 10.

Thank you!

Tension is frequently described as a positive in design, with designers balancing opposing constraints and visual ideas in often ‘perfect tension’. Design work balances a whole series of tensions: analogue–digital; male–female; Twitter–Facebook; art–design; East–West; old–young; interns–employees; global–local; micro–macro; educated–‘feral’; in-house–independent; degree course–short course/apprenticeship; designer–client.

What font is this?

Hey! Could someone help me figure out what type of font this is?



I was wondering if you can help me identify this typeface.

We added a new Book style with its accompanying italic to our successful type family Maiola. It is darker in colour, making reading an even more pleasant experience. Additionally, responding to customer feedback, we have also designed a whole set of symbols used to set logic. Customers who have purchased the Maiola Bundle and would like to add the Book styles, are welcome to a special offer. Please contact us, if interested.

The relentless surge of digital and the proliferation of media platforms present a considerable new challenge for brand managers, designers and developers. Brands cannot ignore the opportunity offered by digital consumption, yet representing themselves on digital formats, reliably and consistently is a complex technological maze. The result is that, while purely digital players are now flourishing in the mobile app and web space, many organisations are experiencing difficulties in conveying their brand on digital platforms. The Brand Perfect Tour brings together expert developers, digital marketers and brand leaders to share knowledge and experience and help brands look flawless whatever the medium.

Thanks in advance for any help! I'm looking for both the bottom & top names.

Has anyone read anything on the topic of the use of font in picturebooks? Is there any literature about using typography in children's literature? I am looking for non-academic or non-education related pieces about this. There is something THERE when you look at children's picturebooks. The fonts are well done (mostly) and fit the theme and motif of the books in a lot of cases.

Its from an old German Type Catalog. Also, any ideas of other fonts that use the same style as the "n"s?
