design

Hello there,

I always like working on mixing type, it might be frustrating, in the end you always find something nice. However, this time around, it seems really hard. I am looking for a serif typeface that fits Knockout's JuniorFlyWeight, it shouldn't be as compressed as Knockout itself but a little more condensed than your normal Garamond or Chronicle. I am working on an editorial design and I'm trying to achieve a little bit more elegance with the fonts' thin and high letterforms.

Looking forward to your recommendations and thank you in advance!

The bâtarde flamande is a style of writing used predominantly in France and present-day Belgium in the 15th century. The style shares an ancestry with other writing styles traditionally grouped as blackletter—fraktur, textura, rotunda, and schwabacher. It had evolved, however, into an æsthetic far removed from its relatives.

While high-contrast in nature, the bâtarde flamande is more delicate and dynamic than the austere and condensed fraktur and textura. Quick curves lack the rigidity of the schwabacher and rotunda. Flair through swashes is thematic, as are the variations in letterforms.

Hi everybody!
I'm from Bulgaria.
Long time I've wanted to discuss the issue of neglected Cyrillic alphabet.

Hi, hi, thrice hi.

New member here, and my first post so here goes. I can find any number of articles about generic typography subjects such as terminology, basics about serifs v sans serifs and the like, and then again I can find lots of detailed tutorials about using software like InDesign, but I can't find any good resources about the combination of typography as applied in document design.

Put another way, I'd be very interested in seeing some examples, guidelines, rules of thumb etc. specifically relating to the design of business documents that are readable and functional but a step away from the dreaded Micro$oft Word template sort of documents.

Hello to everyone, i'm a graphic spanish designer.

Recently I knew the judgement of my personal trial with Renault, a famous french car brand, who did an spanish and south-american advertising campaign with some caracters with a typeface that it was entirely developed by me.

Now the process is that my lawyer, specialist in intelectual property, and me are creating the apellation text to try change the judgement (other judge).

Talented brazilian designer Marina Chaccur designed this beautiful poster featuring Bree, the successful award-winning typeface published in 2008 by TypeTogether. This is the second poster in a series of collectibles we will make available through our website. Posters will be rolled and shipped by snail mail in a tube. (44×70cm, two-colour offset print over Munken Lynx 130gr paper. Price including shipping: €10.00)

The WinSoft International marketing team would like to share the news of the winners in the WinSoft Arabic Typography Contest, which were announced at the Adobe Beach Bash May 8 in Dubai.

The WinSoft Arabic Typography Contest invited contestants to illustrate, in text, their vision of a world where a dialogue between cultures is both natural and enriching. The theme of the contest was collaboration and communication, inline with UNESCO’s theme for 2010, the Rapprochement Between Cultures. Contestants needed to use InDesign ME, Tasmeem and at least one Tasmeem font to create their design, and the designs needed to respect the theme of the contest. We were delighted to see the wide diversity of styles in the more than 70 designs submitted.

The Winners...

The newly redesigned, by Marek Pistora, Czech magazine FONT invited José and Veronika to speak amongst other things about their beginnings, influences, approach to design and way of collaboration. The well designed four-page interview also shows some samples of our typefaces in use, such as in various newspapers and books.

Brouniak

Hello !

I think fonts softwares offer a great opportunity to produce "more" than types for the client. The project below, Brouniak, is the third for which i used FontLab to create symbols the client can use in classical office softwares to get : vectorial logotype, vectorial backgrounds, vectorial pictograms, etc.

For Brouniak, i've created a special font, with the logotype instead of letters and dots instead of numbers : the client can use a vectorial logotype on documents he creates under OpenOffice, and the clock of his computer generate dotted random backgrounds (i've used the "insert date/hours" function to do that).

You can read (in french) the full project here : http://www.punkat.com

Anyone know what typeface is being used for the cover of this latest Criterion edition of The Seventh Seal? I really like it...

This display version of Karmina Regular was developed for a particular client with a specific set of requirements in mind. The client is using the full Karmina family for all their communication materials and needed a version for large size applications, as big as billboards. They liked the sturdiness and low contrast of Karmina and didn't want to loose those features too much in the display version. After several presentations and more extreme variants, we nailed the design. The contrast is rather low for a display version, but the overall feel of the typeface is elegant, slim and yet sturdy enough. Both parties are very happy with the result and we look forward to see some applications.

Justifying justification

Hi,

I'm a graphic design student researching justified text, and wondered if anybody knew of some examples of brilliant (or terrible!) justified text? Previous forums have discussed whether it's a good idea or not, but I'm really looking for real examples of successful justification (possibly including pre-computers and pre-type, as one forum entry mentioned manuscripts written by monks). If anybody could recommend some books too, that'd be great.

Cheers!

I'm designing a "gig" poster and was wondering how you achieve this type of weathered effect. Does the designer use brushes or is it a silkscreening technique that causes the speckles? Or is it a little of both?

Designing "S"

Hi, I am new to typophile but I do have an issue that has been killing me. I am designing a typeface almost ready to be screen printed. However, the letter "S" has been killing me! Any tips, tricks, or some sort of dark magic to conjure a good "S." Any sort of help would be neat-oh.
