Hello all,

I’m currently looking for any information about vintage hand lettering signage in the city of OPorto in Portugal. I know it’s a difficult subject to find information about, but anyone who knows something about it, please let me know. Also, any info about the history of hand lettering signs would be really helpful. Thanks to everybody!!!

Best,
Ricardo C.

Hi I was wondering if any of you guys have any suggestions of what kind of fonts can I mix with Comforta.
I would like to have a good contrast between the two fonts. I know Comforta have different weights but i would like to mix this font with another one.

Hello all! I recently launched a new font design project on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/59648831/uniform-a-revolutionary-new...

The font is a geometric sans serif type family, but what makes it unique is that the condensed weights are straight-sided, not squished ovals like all other geometric type families out there.

Please pass the word along to your designer/type loving friends! I really want to be able to create this cool new typeface but without the funding there is no way I will have the free time to work on it.

Thanks!

Hi Typophiles,

I'm a publisher and designer and need to establish good type design parameters for Russian books. I don't speak Russian and therefore can't come up with settings that Russian readers would consider ideal for sustained reading. For English text and the usual text faces, the ideal number of characters (including spaces and punctuation) is about 67 per line. Has anyone heard of an ideal number for Russian? Grateful for any lead. :)

Hello everyone,

This is my first post and I am wondering if anyone who has a little bit more knowledge than myself can help me out. I am working on a packaging project just now which the brand is using Browns as it's main typeface. On the package we have designed it to support multiple different typeface on the front and the back of the package.

I need a typeface that is similar to Browns but can be used in the following languages: German, Spanish, French, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Slovenian and Turkish.

Thanks,
Kyle.

Hi,

why is – in most fonts – the backslash more slanted than the "regular" slash? Is there any reason?

I would like to know what specific typefaces were used on cigarette advertising posters back in the 1950's and 1960's.
I'm aware of particular styles from those decades but cannot pinpoint too many exact typefaces used.

Hey there!

I'm a new and learning designer just taking my first typography class. It is something I am really enjoying.
As part of my class, I was assigned a typeface to study and do research on and present as my final project. The face I was given is "Filosophia." It is a beautiful one and I know it was developed by Zuzana Licko of Emigre Fonts in the 1990's. I also know that it was inspired by the classic "Bodoni." Outside of that, I have found very little information on Filosphia itself.

Does anyone know of any books that include information about it or its history? Are there any groups, or communities dedicated to Filosophia? How about any valid websites?

Thanks for the help!

font pairing help???

What is a good serif font to pair with Futura? I'm using Futura Std Heavy/Bold to be more specific. I've been on the website typeconnection.com and it says that ITC Century is a good one but I'm not sure yet if that's the best right now. Does anyone have any suggestions? Preferably fonts that could be found on the Adobe Font Folio Package because that's what I have access to.

Howdy folk, we're launching an on-screen design studio.
The approach was to keep a friendly, approachable spin while having something that could play nicely in more serious/sensible surrounds.

Appreciate thoughts and feedback on letter shape/weighting.

Would also love some typeface recommends to sit with it.
Our current view sees some contrasting pairs used, i.e, VAG and Corona

Any and all welcome and appreciated.

I made this introduction to typography website a couple weeks back for a class project. I wanted to give the basics of type in a super dumbed-down way. What do you guys think?
