typography

Hi, I'm doing a project on "engaging the audience" and getting them to feel inspired and appreciate typography, My audience is 4-16 year olds. My aim is to try and inspire 4-16 year olds to appreciate typography and possibly enjoy it more. I've done some secondary research into my age range and have even tried to make typography attractive via means of colour and shape but i'm not really getting much feedback when i approach people who stop and look. I was wondering if anybody may have some helpful suggestions or advice?

Thanks!

One font that i created. I would be verry happy to hear about your opinion.

I am designing the latest issue of one of my magazines. The font we use is Kepler as headings and body copy mixed with Verlag as title headings. I am not loving the font Kepler and want to change it but not too dramatically - any advice much appreciated on which alternative font I could use that would mix well with Verlag. I have looked at Farnham but fear it may be too trendy for the magazine. It is a womans magazine, but for the older generation.

Thanks in advance

Follwing the popularity of the Fontli app on iPhone, we have released Fontli on the Windows Phones (www.fontli.com) ! And with an all-new smashing user Interface! The first truly typography-related application on the Windows app store! Now you see why we are so excited!

The user interface has been completely revamped to use the best of what Windows platform has to offer: the Metro UI. Check out some of the screenshots here http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/fontli/0d09f01f-17de-4757-b6... and you will see they are anything but a clone of Fontli on the iPhone.

Am I wrong?

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?

Hey everyone,

I've been doing a year long typography project, and my limited selection of typefaces is making the project feel stale and laborious. I need some fresh typefaces!

I am particularly drawn to hand-written typefaces. Not script, so much... but anything that looks like it was written by hand. Fun, playful, fresh, etc... these are words I am drawn to.

Do you have any recommendations that aren't going to break the bank?

Look forward to hearing your responses.. thanks!

Hi,

I have recently graduated from university, studying Graphic Design. I have created a blog with some of my designs to exhibit some of my skills.

Here is my blog: munyachidakwa.wordpress.com

I would love for some feedback on my work. I am open to any form of criticism.

I thank you for taking time to read this

Does anybody know any design blogs other than creative review?

hi @ all,

i'm searching for the name of a special art-deco/retro font i've seen on a image at pixeden.
i've already tried whatthefont.com and similar databases to find this one, but with no luck.
so i hope anyone of you can help me with this.

here are the pictures:

Hello!

We're 3 second year graphic design students from Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences, from Kouvola, Finland. We are making our own student magazine as a school project and the subject of the magazine will be about graphic design. The magazine will also be published in the internet. (We'll announce it later.)

We have chosen typography in movies as our subject for the magazine.

We would like to find some people, who are somehow involved with typography in movies; whether you're very enthusiastic about it or even working with typography in movies to interview. We'd hope to learn more about this subject through your views and opinions. It would also be interesting to hear about your work or projects.

Thank you in advance!

Anyone know of any research or have any suggestions for commonly used fonts that have the below attributes set out by Dr. Robert Hillier?

[For]The majority of dyslexic readers tested it was the combination of handwritten style, uppercase forms, long ascenders and descenders, light weight, uniform strokes, perpendicular design and generous inter-word spacing that was preferred.p275 (Hillier, Dr. Robert ‘Sylexiad. A typeface for the adult dyslexic reader’ in Journal of writing in creative practice Vol. 1, Number 3. 2008. P275 – 288)

I decided to throw together a tumblr blog of my 3d type explorations. I know I'm treading well-worn ground here, but I'm teaching myself the software and having fun with type while doing it. Although there's nothing particularly groundbreaking here, there may be something of interest to the people that frequent this board. Hope you like it.

and for those of you that don't like tumblr, I'm also replicating it all on my flickr site.

If you don't like flickr or tumblr, sorry, got nothing else for you.

Here's a teaser image [one of the better ones, ha].

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.

Hello!

Every year I push a design challenge on myself about myself. I love redoing my personal logo, especially because I'm just a student designer and my "personal" brand is still being built upon. My initials are D, L, and S, and I've always had a problem piecing them together based on the shapes and high x-height of the L in comparison to the bowls of the D and S. Recently, I've been very interested in geometric monograms and especially how the specific letters--triangles for D's and L's, and a swirl for the S--could overlap to become my personal logo and being slightly legible while really deriving from the letters as opposed to clearly showing them.

These are the product of a late-night brainstorming process. Any thoughts?

Hello everyone! I recently started this new design blog (3 months ago) and I'm glad to share it with you guys :) The blog is about logo designs, both creative and design-rich logotypes. All of the designs is featured from dribbble. I mainly started it because of my love to logo designs, that's actually also how I came up with the name "Logo Crush". It now has a capacity of over 250+ design-rich logotypes (and counting), to inspire, learn from or simply to enjoy!

Evening all,

Just to briefly introduce myself: I'm Brad- a 22yr old Graphic Design student from New Zealand, and am a Masters Candidate at the Whanganui School of Design.

My dissertation looks into the current "state" of type work, both in terms of typography and typeface design. My primary focus is the mechanization/digitization of type work: the influence that mass-production and distribution principles have on both the value of a piece of work, and the extent to which its meaning can be read.

I have designed some computer wallpapers and would really like some feedback on them! I am also thinking about putting these into print and start selling them to a niche market on the internet. So, I need to know if what I'm designing is complete crap that won't sell. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. There are four of them live right now. Check them out here!

Thanks!

Hello people of type. I am doing research on experimental typography for a class and haven't had luck finding good textbooks or papers if any on this topic. Has any of you come across on this topic in books or essays? Could you share your sources? I'm particularly looking for material on experimental typography in book design. An example of this is VAS: An Opera in Flatland. Thank you for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Everyone,

I'm posting this with the kind permission of one of the mods (Thank again Dan!)

I'm an avid ambigram designer, and have been the content editor & writer for Ambigram.com for approximately 4 years now. Recently I've started working on a book called Ambigrams Revealed, which has been accepted by PeachPit Press & will be published in March 2013. The book will be an international collection of ambigrams, case studies, tutorials and other content, along with a phenomenal judging panel which consists of three well known ambigram artists/critics and three well known graphic designers.

I Love Eurostile is a (parody) tribute to the typeface Eurostile. The inspiration comes from the over usage of the typeface by industrial designers and Hollywood blockbusters. http://iloveeurostile.com

What's your take? Are you sick of seeing Eurostile? Do you think it's a good typeface? How about Bank Gothic? ;)

Hey everyone, I'm new to this awesome forum. I was wondering if I could get some of you experts in typography to help give some input on my poster series. I'm creating posters that deal with typography and some basic tips for beginners. Right now I have 8 posters and will maybe make a ninth if I need it. I was hoping that everyone could give me some input on the topics I chose to write about.

1. Choose the right typeface for the job.
2. Serif or Sans Serif?
3. Kern correctly.
4. Use two fonts on average in a design.
5. The grid.
6. Weights.
7. Hierarchy.
8. Use fonts that have complete sets of glyphs.

So those were the topics I chose to put. I'm going for a real minimalist poster and I already have some examples if you would want to see them.

Thanks everyone.
