Internationl Typefaces

Forums: 

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.

Filosophia history

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!

Creating 3D Type

Hello All!
This is my first post on Typophile, diggin' the site so far! I came to this
site in search of an answer. I have been using Illustrator and Photoshop
trying to create 3D typography and it seems to not be going in the right
direction. Can anyone tell me what programs were used to create text like
this:

astroluxtype's Koo Koo Puff new font release

Forums: 

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.

font pairing help???

Forums: 

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.

Logotype and accompanying faces

Forums: 

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.

Hi There,

I've got a brief to make a small book/booklet in the style of a "Dockers Workbook" celebrating one man (union leader Walt Cunningham's) life on the docks of Hull between 1950's-1980's.

i have been looking everywhere for a nice clear legible serif typeface to use for my body copy , i found one that i loved FF Scala Pro Regular http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/downloads/fontfont/ff_scala_pro/ it works n perfectly with the ethos of my type having been use in books depicting democratic revolutions/movements and in Museum booklets.The elegance of this typeface is exactly what i need but don't have the € 299.00 to purchase it on a student's income.

New Logo/HELP!!! Choose Between 3 Logos Please

Hello all,

I have a Web/Graphic Design startup I am working on and I have 3 logos I have come down to choosing. The name of the company is NE Elements, which is a play on the word any, so its really "Any Elements." The point being we use the elements of man to design things. Please look at the 3 logos posted in black and white and pick the one you like. I haven't designed any with color yet, and will move on with that once I choose a logo. Thanks all for your help. Feedback is very welcome.

Perpetua(l) distress!

Forums: 

Hi everyone!
This is my first post on this forum, and i really really needed some advice.

My client has a logo already designed using Perpetua (for the main logo type). I need a matching serif and sans serif font to use for the stationary and subsequent collaterals.... and i didn't really want to use Perpetua (i dont like it very much, its so stuffy and old). i know an obvious choice would be Gill sans, but i don't like that font very much either (something about the question mark annoys me)

please help! i've been wracking my brains staring at my screen for hours.

thanks in advance
