typeface

Hey guys!

I’m currently working on branding for an Asian city and I imagine the wordmark to have a modern, Western-friendly appeal, but with a subtle Asian warmth and sharpness to it.

ITC Symbol Std has caught my attention so far, but I’m really not comfortable with the varying thickness of the stems and the loops. Also, the thicker weights look nice but when it comes down to the lighter weights, the typeface looks odd.

I have also found Penumbra to be appealing although I wish it had more subtle serifs and available lowercase letters for the wordmark I’m designing.

Hello everyone,

I've been working on this font for over a year now, I've been putting it on and off and I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the year. Right now all I have is lowercase and will eventually work my way to numbers and glyphs.

I'll gladly appreciate any feedback and criticism.
Thanks

Hi,

can anyone comment on the usability of the "Core Sans" family by S-Core?

The "N" (= neutral) version is on discount at the moment (for example here http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/s-core/core-sans-n/), and I would like to hear about how it works for large amounts of text like in books.

Has anyone ever mixed the different members of the family, "N" with "G" for example? Are small caps included? I once saw that there’s an extra "SC" font available …

Thanks!

Titus Nemeth's article titled "Simplified Arabic: a new form of Arabic type for hot metal composition" was recently published in "Typography papers 9."
This is an excellent review of the development of Simplified Arabic since its inception in the 1950's. It will be of interest to anyone concerned with the history of Arabic typeface design. It would be even more useful if some of the figure were published large enough to show the details of the typefaces featured. Perhaps, Reading or Nemeth could publish these images in high resolution on the Internet for those of us who desire to learn more.

Typeface-related Books

¶ I'd like to start a thread about typeface-related books.

1. Can the moderator create a section dedicated to typeface-related books?
2. Is there a place to purchase out of print typeface-related books?
3. Can you draw your list of out of print typeface-related books?

"Lichtspielhaus" is a ultra condensed Lichtspiele Spin-Off with 8 weights. It still transports you back to a time where neon lights and marquee letters decorated cinema facades.

There are 8 styles: Hairline, Thin, Light, Regular, Medium, Bold, Black and Heavy.

"Lichtspielhaus" is the first part of a new Type Noir Quadrilogy.

You can get it here if you like it:

Foundation Sans

My first attempt at designing a typeface.

Still plenty of work to do, but wanted to know what you'd change so far.

It comes with Sans styles and a Display alternative as well.

I appreciate your opinions!

Fortunately I finally had the time to continue my first efforts in the conception of a spurless geometric sans.
Any comments would be appreciated! :)

Hello,

What are some good typefaces that would be suiting of the 1070 medieval period?

As usual, a client that just says feelings and nothing more concrete than what I am looking for.

For a food chain, family-oriented / "for the crowd" kind of demographic, and I guess it will be in a certain shade of red (like ketchup.) Its commercial advertisments are usually depicting joy when being inside the establishment or patronizing their merchandise.

Can anyone suggest? I am more leaning towards san serif typefaces since it is a tagline of sorts (can't say the tagline really, but something that in service with joy.)

Any help, guide and/or suggestions would be much appreciated!

I'm looking for a typeface similar in nature to Quicksand (http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/quicksand), but I need it to not be free.

Really, any very rounded sans serif with various weights would be great. The closest I've found is Sofia Pro Rounded, but if you have any other suggestions, it'd be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

New to the Monotype® library, the 36-font Burlingame® typeface family offers designers a square, sans-serif design that is suitable for a wide range of purposes, from branding, advertising and packaging to automotive displays, user interfaces, motion graphics, and mobile and broadcast environments.

Designed by Carl Crossgrove, senior type designer at Monotype, the Burlingame typeface performs with strength and grace at any size. It’s a multifaceted, multipurpose typeface family.

Can anyone tell me what the circled parts are in this pic? Are they terminals, serifs, tails?
I'm getting confused with them all :/

World boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko is attempting to deal a knockout blow to illiteracy through a unique fundraising initiative – and Monotype is in full support. Klitschko has punched 26 letters to create a font, which is now available for free on Linotype.com. Monotype has optimized the fist-painted font to ensure clarity and quality.

All proceeds from the voluntary monetary contributions will go to the Klitschko Brothers Foundation in partnership with German charity organization BILD’s “A Heart for Children” charity http://www.ein-herz-fuer-kinder.de to combat illiteracy internationally.

Hi Typophile,

First time posting on the forum so hopefully some of you guys can help me with this one? I am struggling to identify a typeface which has been used throughout the branding of a company I am currently redesigning.

The typeface is used predominantly in the logo, hopefully when its identified I will be able to see if its commercially available as a web font to use online:

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,
Lewis.

I don't know if it's just me and I've never heard of this optical illusion but do the arms of this E appear to flare into the stem?
I like my corrected version better but I want to get some other thoughts on it. Thanks.

How's the letter spacing on this E? (I'm a newbie.)
Thanks.

Yesterday I posted an introduction to my new typeface I’m working on, Theory Serif: http://typophile.com/node/107663

Your thoughts, critique and ideas are welcome.

Hi everyone,

Can you please help to identify the typefaces
used in the newspaper ?

Thank you very much

Monotype’s Akko typeface is now on “full display” at the Museum of Science, Boston, “Hall of Human Life,” exhibit. Akko is the main brand identity font for the museum’s newest permanent exhibit, which opened to the public this weekend.

Hello,

I am looking for a Medieval typeface that I can use for a poster that subtly hints at being Medieval and not one that is over flamboyant and difficult to read.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Free typefaces would be best but please suggest all - free is just a bonus.
