Hey, tell me please! Is there such a thing as a flicker/pinterest/image collection of serif styles???? I'd like to get some inspiration and a big image collection would be a real time saver...
Image collections for any other kind of characters are welcome too, specially ampersands, g's, a's, numerals!
I'm in the mist of starting a curated store/gallery in San Francisco and online that will focus on limited edition fashion, furniture, music,design, objects, art books and magazines from a specific region. The first region I'm going to focus on is Belgium. It will be a collection with vintage industrial pieces as well as "cutting edge" contemporary pieces.
I'm calling the store Highlight which is the brand name that will expand to include Highlight Belgium, Highlight California, Highlight Japan, etc. For every country or region I would like to use a specific font, however I would like the word Highlight to always stay consistent.
A few questions for you.
1. Does the community have any recommendations on a source for regional specific fonts?
hello! First time user, long time reader. Thought I'd put this awesome community to use.
This is a logo for an art gallery.
One is the display logo, the other is an alternative logo for other uses.
Go harsh if you can, i'm still learning.
FontShop.com recently introduced our Gallery page, showcasing additional specimens and examples of type in use found on the Web. When an image is added, it appears on both the Latest Gallery page as well as on any font or package page from the type family in use. Congrats to Klavika, the current frontrunner with 18 gallery images added so far!
i received this email from Craig Ward (Words Are Pictures) regarding the use of Alouette:
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know I used your font Alouette recently in a collaborative piece with fellow typographers Sean Freeman and Alison Carmichael for the If You Could... exhibition which opens tonight in London. We took 3 pieces of graffiti that jumped out of us and made them into some beautiful typography and had them laser cut out of wood and applied them directly to the gallery wall.
Here's a little write up on Creative Review's blog, my piece 'Obstruct the doors...' is around half way down the page, Alison's is the first image:
