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.

EAN code / barcode

hello,
does anybody knows a free reliable barcode maker/utility? or just cheap?
thank you!

Hi guys,

I recently started working as a freelancer and have started taking on a few jobs. I was wondering what the protocol you all had for dealing with clients. I usually start with an insanely detailed design brief that highlights the project, the deliverables, timeline, schedule, deadlines, the prerequisite materials being handed over, examples of what to do, examples of what NOT to do etc. I've been trying to leave as little ambiguity in the air before starting a project. Is this correct? can you think of any books or resources i ought to reference?

And,

How do you usually bill clients? Hourly? Standard rate dependent on product etc?

Utterly confused,
Arjun

need help!

Hi there,

I am in need of some serious help with my font. I have already designed it, and when I go and and export it into FontLab, everything gets messed up. Does anyone know of a company or a freelance typeographer that can help me out? MyFonts have already set up an foundry, and I didn't realize it would be this difficult. If anyone can lead me in the right direction, that would be great!

Thank you,
Erin

Mostly designers deliver a PDF preview of their font(s) when one in made. About how it's made, how it looks, blabla. What is your opinion about what should be in it? And which already excisting promotions do you think are good?

I'm trying to make one for myself (more like a catalog but well designed), containing my font collection.

I currently reside in San Diego, California. Here is a list of the Studios making the most noise. Whats going on where you are from?

Very nice work throughout...

Is there a 'correct' way to include spaces before and after items in a list (such as bullets)?

I am working on a document that has a space of 12pt after each paragraph. I like the visual break this provides. Should I have a 12pt space after each item in the list? Sometimes this looks too much.

I'm working to a 12pt baseline grid so it seems that the space should either be 12pt to match my grid, or nothing.

Any tips/design examples?

Thanks in advance!

Consider it as the first of a line of experimental apps for the AppStore:

And also as a follow-up to a couple of discussions that took place here around one year ago: 1, 2
