design

Hi all,

I am working on a greeting card for a women's non-profit
organization and the theme is about peace, hope, faith, etc.
for the holidays and I am creating the words to be the shape
of a gift box, so I am trying to decide what kind of typefaces
I should look for. There is one called Lobster I like and others
such as Rosewood fill and Mrs. Eaves Bold. I have other slab
serifs and a few scripts, but nothing jumps out at me.

Would any of you have some suggestions? Thanks!!

I'm working on a project about design by committee / consensus and I really need some help with it. Essentially the idea is to make a book with all the decisions about its design made within this forum. The aesthetics of the book - it's size, format, layout, typeface etc will all decided by the consensus in here.

Firstly, what do people think about the size of the book should be? And in terms of the title, I have two starting points - 'A Camel is a Horse Designed by Committee' and 'Too Many Cooks'.

I'd really appreciate any comments and suggestions on this project.

Thanks

Hi everyone, I'm redoing a logo for a company producing educational games for children. The logo is supposed to appeal to children and educators (parents and teachers). It should have a "smart child" look about it.

Could people please give me their opinion of the design that I have made including font?

I've been working on a poster for a client and he totally hates it. What changes do people suggest I make to the design?

Hello everyone,

I am addressing this question to the forum because I am considering joining a specialisation course on type design. The first course of this characteristics ever done in Spain. I have always been passionate about typography, and I have already done short courses on calligraphy, font design and that kind of stuff.
With all due respect to every fantastic font designer around the world, I am rather concerned about the need of new fonts. From my point of view, there ir a huge range of good fonts in every category.
What do you think?

Have a nice day!

What are some of your favorite dotted fonts out there? Must be round shapes, not squares. Looking for some cool ideas here!

Thanks for helping out,
Steve

Humorous resume by Herb Lubalin as published in the 1966 newsletter, "Thumbnail", Art Directors and Designers (ADDA) of New Orleans, http://typophile.com/node/53937


This delightful memory was recently discovered in the archives of AIGA New Orleans. ADDA was the forerunner of AIGA New Orleans.

This post describes how I have created matching Hebrew and Latin for my own font "Mike Hebrew".

I did not add this post to the "Creating a Merger of a Latin and a Non-Latin Font Style" because many of the replies did not deal with designing fonts. Furthermore don't want to be involved in criticizing other people's fonts, other people or to argue about history etc.

This design problem will be different for each kind of Hebrew font. If the Hebrew font is Frank Ruel then the solutions will be quite different to solutions that would be appropriate if the Hebrew font is Levenim. The is NO SINGLE SOLUTION.

What I write here only applies to matching the Hebrew and the Latin letters in my own "Mike Hebrew" font.

I would be curious to know who designed this. It appears to be top secret.
I was surprised not to see a long typophile thread about this thing. it's pretty horrible!

I am part of a small studio called People Collective and we are starting a new project/experiment in the creation and distribution of type. We have written a blog post that details our plans here but in short, hope to fund the creation of a typeface through KickStarter. We'd really like to hear your thoughts on both the creation/distribution concept and the specific design options we post to the blog over the coming weeks, thanks!

Old wood type specimens

I've been looking for a variety of good fonts that are based off old wood type specimens from the good 'ol days. I knew this would be the place to ask. Anyone know of some good digitally revived wood type fonts?


Thanks,
Aaron

Hello. I've been a long time lurker, so I've finally decided to join in and get advice. I've been into fonts ever since I was a kid, especially those from logos. I design my own by shaping them on PowerPoint and transferring the glyphs to High-Logic's Font Creator Program.

Thus far I've done some modernized fonts based on the classic "Press Your Luck" logo; one is regular and the other is extended, but I have some fine-tuning to do (the corners of the letters are rounded or beveled, which I don't want). Ray Larabie is known for recreating fonts from logos, and though this is a parody in the same vein, do I need to seek legal permission before publishing the font?

Hi!

I'm trying to gauge the importance of various collaboration scenarios... I hope you can spare a moment to consider the following scenario, and let me know your thoughts :-)

You publish a typeface family, "Alice," with 12 weights of roman and italic, covering full Latin, Cyrillic and Greek, under a 'libre' license. You publish all source files - FontLab VFBs including interpolation master outlines, OpenType feature files, and hinting files.

Just spotted the packaging:

Is it only me that wants to stick that balloon in between R & A?

WOBURN, Mass., Aug 17, 2010 -- Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has announced the Web Font Awards, an international competition designed to recognize websites that incorporate exceptional use of Web fonts. The Web Font Awards will be sponsored by Monotype Imaging with support from Carsonified, a UK-based company that produces events for Web professionals.

I am happy to announce that after a long period of development, my type family Acorde is available for purchase at http://www.willerstorfer.com

About the typeface:
Acorde is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. It was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. The typeface’s name is derived from ‘a’ ‘cor’porate ‘de’sign typeface, however Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design purposes as well.

We've released several new fonts since I last visited Typophile, so here's a quick update.

I will be speaking at TypeCon on the subject of my collection of vintage type and design from the English fabric trade and thought I should create a blog which gives a taste of the collection.
It is not complete or well done (I only started building it Monday) but please take a look at it here.
