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

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

Looking for serious typeface that evokes happiness as well


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!

Paid typefaces similar to Quicksand


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!

Typeface Identification

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,


A Legible Medieval typeface that subtly hints at being Medieval?



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.


Has late 20th-century technology had a positive or negative impact on the proliferation of Typefaces?

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.

Typeface and Fonts philosophy, history and art


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,


Typeface needed for high-end Faux Fur and Leather Fashion Label

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 :)

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.

Logo Type Copyright and Usage.

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.
