Hello, I am happy to finally announce the release of my new typeface!
Rukou -- a geometric-script typeface influenced by schoolhand
More info and buy
At first I thought this was Barnbrook's State Machine, but looking at it closely, it definitley is not. I can't place it though. I don't know of a typeface with a similar 'G'.
I've been working on a font for a while and I want to take it into a development program to become functional.
However, I want the shapes to be as refined as possible before offering it to the world.
Please be critical, I am taking all comments into consideration.
If you'd like a closer view of a letter or letters please ask and I can attach additional files for critiquing.
I saw this typeface on an ad, and I'm sure I have seen it before, but I can't seem to remember the name or where I've seen it. Any help will be highly appreciated.
This is font made by Dalton Maag for ThyssenKrupp. It looks great in long texts. Can someone recommend similar font? I thought about obvious choices like Fago or Stroudley. But they do not have this „DINish feel”. Stroudley is almost perfect but its regular weight is a way too thick for my taste. Do you have any suggestions?
I keep seeing this font used in sort of retro modern posters and stuff. Anyone know what this is or where I can find fonts like this?
Announcing a new, very round typeface: Circula™. It is a simplified geometric display typeface based on circles. It contains capitals and small capitals only (no lower case), basic symbols, superior and inferior numbers and common fractions. It supports Eastern European, Baltic and Turkish character sets. The medium cut is free. Get it at Myfonts.
I'm in the process of creating a masthead for a fictional magazine, and I'm using futura extra bold – All caps.
I'm translating the title in other languages, and I want to try to make a japanese and/or korean version.
The problem is that japanese kanji/katakana/hiragana are really bound to calligraphy: is it possible, in your opinion, to create a "geometric" version of them (example: ん) and maintain legibility and recognizability?
Thank you in advance,
Anybody know what this is, or know of something similar?
here is a font I had to redraw with illo but have to do window vinyl lettering for this client but I have trouble in "iding" this baby.

Thanks so much for your help in advance
I'm trying to determine which typeface is used on the attached image.
Would anyone know?
Thanks in advance!
if you like modern and geometric fonts and blackletter as well, have a look at the typophile post »Fracmetrica Black .otf«
the free-font »Fracmetrica Black« is a modern and geometric blackletter with several opentype-features like ligatures, case-sensitives, text figures.
It's kind of condensed and has a high contrast. The typeface's construction is based on an isometric 60°-grid.
I really like the minimal look of this logo and the associated type. Can anyone tell me what it is?
I've looked around on MyFonts and it looks like it might be a modified Nobel extra light, but I'm still not sure. Any thoughts?
I'm going nuts trying to identify this wide, geometric sans which I've seen on my local Fox channel's news graphics and most recently on the Screen Actors Guild awards on January 23, 2010. I've come across likely candidates (Trade Gothic Extended, Aviano Sans, Doublewide) but none of those have the exact letterforms, especially the sharp point angles of capital M and W. The letterforms have the sharp angle characteristics of Metro sans (Dwiggins) but in an exaggerated extended way. The news channel graphics have shown this in upper and lowercase, while the SAG awards used all caps. HELP!
The best gift I got for Christmas was a book about the design of the Norwegian telephone box (1933). So I got inspired, and drew some glyphs, and all of a sudden I had a whole alphabet. I didn't look at the telephone box lettering while I drew, I wanted to make letters resembling the Art Deco style there still were a lot of traces left of in Norway until the 80s (now, there's only a few phone boxes and some street signs left), without making a derivative of anything.
I've made some deliberately naïve old-school choices, this is not a polished, modern take on a geometric sans serif.
