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.
This spring Type@Cooper's public workshops offerings have some new classes in Cooper Union's Letterpress studio.
Beginning February 3rd, Nick Sherman will teach a 5 week evening course
Students will look at historical examples, analyse forms, design a some letters, and print their designs from laser cut wood type on a Vandercook press. If you love type, color and printing this will be very fun.
Beginning March 17th, Sumner Stone will teach a 5 week evening course
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,
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.)
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.
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.
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.
We are proud to announce our new release!

I lam curious to know who designed the original Azkidenz Grotesk typeface published by the H. Berthold AG Foundry in 1896. Gunter Gerhard Lange was not born untill 1921.
I'm currently working on a thesis that discusses the impact of late twentieth-century technology on the proliferation of typefaces. It would be a great help if you would comment your opinion whether type design programmes, such as Opentype have had a positive or negative impact on the quality of typefaces designed over the past few years.
I am a new member of this group. I am not a graphic designer, nor a font/typeface designer. However I am fascinated with fonts, their history, philosophy and art. And of course their creators.
Since there is a note saying that any subject can be posted to this forum, here is where I am doing so. However, if there is a more appropriate forum to do so, I would be grateful to know about it.
I need typeface suggestions for this fashion label with the description down below. I have also attached images of the types of logos that appeal to them. Key words are bold, playful, upmarket and modern. I tried to play with black-letter but I am looking for a more contemporary feel. I like the Hook and Irons Co. typeface as well which has a personable almost hand drawn feel to it. Any help/advice would be appreciated :)

So I am creating this logo for a customer and it is based on a custom typeface I have designed for myself for use in my work. So when i create the final logo type using that typeface, will I be able to transfer the copyright of the logo(only the logotype, as a standalone piece of design) to the customer. I am asking this because typefaces aren't copyrightable in the US and i dont want the customer to end up with a logo that they don't even own full copyright to.
Thanks for your help.
Meet the Metro Nova typeface family, new from Monotype. Designed by Monotype’s Toshi Omagari, Metro Nova is the next-generation version of William Addison Dwiggins’ Metro design, released into the Linotype library in 1930.
Hello everyone! You've been recommended as the best ones to go to... and I've already tried to other ID links with no joy.
It's kinda close to a few things, but nothing exact that I can identify - can anyone help identify this typeface?
Many thanks in advance!
I'm currently studying Futura font.
There's a question my teacher gave me,
Why is Futura created?
I can't seems to find the answer :(
And also, what do you think of Futura? What feels it gives you?
Hi - I can't seem to identify this font. It is similar to Cerigo, but not quite.
Does anyone know what the hand font used on this is?
In 2008 TypeTogether released the Bree typeface, a sleek sans serif that quickly became a favorite among brand and editorial designers.
Bree Serif follows the same theme as its predecessor. It is a young and energetic upright italic that approaches readers with hip and somewhat elegant charm. It has a range of styles that can perform as counterparts to the original Bree fonts. At the same time though they bring a whole range of new and individual features that make Bree Serif a separate type family in its own right.
I am a design student and I am rebranding a Scottish resort called Turnberry. I was hoping someone could suggest a good Scottish-ish typeface :) Thanks!

I wonder how Roboto should be classified. Is it a grotesk, a geometric sans serif, a humanist sans serif? In any case it is a lineal sans serif, but I am wondering about the contextual category.
If you ask me, it’s a hybrid, with classicist grotesk (lowercase a and as, and uppercase S, C, G) with elements of a humanist sans serif (lowercase e, g, etc.). What do you think?
