Hello Everyone,
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.
Thank you

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.

Hello,

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.

Thank you,

Shab

Hi all,

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 :)

Name: NOBLE DEVIANCE
Target: Women 25-35

The Logo Design is for a new and edgy fashion brand that specializes in Leather and High-end Faux Fur. The company is, Noble Deviance and we create accessories, apparel and footwear for women living in major cities like New York, Tokyo and everywhere in between. It's street wear with a touch of luxury.

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!

Hi,
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?

Thanks!

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.

Hi!

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?

http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/roboto

Before the Haas Type Foundry released Helvetica in 1957, constructivist sans serif fonts were classified as Grotesk, a term that reflected the dismissive notion of typesetters in previous times. It was Art Deco and the Bauhaus movement, along with modernist architecture, fresh ideas and stricter shapes in interior design, a style influenced by industrial and technological developments, that made Grotesk fonts more popular over time.

Legal use of typefaces

Hi,
First post. New designer.

I have a question regarding the legality of using typefaces.

Let's say I use Adobe CS to design a poster/brochure/logo for a company, for which I will be paid. Can I use any of the fonts installed on my Mac (such as Futura, Helvetica, Hoefler ...) without any issues or should either the client or the designer (me) purchase a licence for the specific usage of the chosen font?

Essentially, can all the fonts that come with the OS or the design software be used for any reason?

Thanks,

About Heráldica Script

We are proud to add a very complex and new font to our collection.

Ornamented scripts are a Koziupa/Paul specialty, and Heraldica is one of their most expressive. It attains the very definition of deluxe by conjoining the classic thin-and-thick script treatment with thin-only counterpart strokes, then it goes the extra mile with a varied complement of overlaid flourishes. The usual assortment of multiple alternates and ending forms pushes it even further in class and versatility.

Monograms, logos, jewelry packaging and book covers are only a few of the possibilities with such a high-end script.

Hi,

I’m looking for literature on neo-grotesque typefaces like Helvetica, Univers etc. … I’m very interested in profound knowledge on development and history. Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

This is my first post on here!

I wondered if you knew of a typeface that represented these sort of values of a person:

honest, approachable, reliable, the original 'Mc'coy', and homely

I wondered if a serif typeface said 'stern' too much, so maybe a Sans Serif is more appropriate

By 'Original' I mean someone that has been about for years but is still among the best but maybe needing to be more modern

Here are some nice retro fonts for cheap. I thought some of you would like this link.

I've just released a new free font called SONAR SCRIPT available for free download at the Floodfonts website. If you want to see more in-use examples you are invited to visit the Behance project: http://bit.ly/103LIko

SONAR SCRIPT is a modular, experimental typeface that plays with the idea to fold a line of text from a continuous strip of paper. In spite of its technical and contemporary appearance, the overall impression of the typeface is unusual and very characteristic! SONAR SCRIPT works really well to create grid-based, geometric layouts with large letters or to design logotypes.
