New Release: Bree Serif

Forums: 

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.

Classification of Roboto

Forums: 

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?

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.

a Homely, honest , reliable,

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

New free font SONAR SCRIPT

Forums: 

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.

Geometric typeface

Forums: 

Hi all,

Im after some feed back on my little display face. Its based on a circular modular grid. Its pretty simple but the idea is I will laser cut some characters and then letterpress them at about 12"/25cm, and have a play with the letter forms and not the entire font.

Thanks for the time and help.

Theo.

ps, Ill be letterpressing these on Friday so if people are interested Ill stick some images up. ; )

Can anyone identify this typeface for me?

Can anyone help me to identify this typeface please? - The 'Woo Hoo It's World Book Day". I'm aware it's probably been letterpresses, but there must be a digital version of it somewhere...? I'm a BA Hons Graphic Design student and desperately need this font! Any responses would be greatly appreciated!

Suggestions please

Howdy crew, we're currently hunting for some branding typefaces for our screen design and animation outfit called.

While we've got some type directions in place that we're happy with, I thought I'd open it out to you knowledgeable folk to offer suggestions of typefaces that might hit the mark.

As a business we sit somewhere between a creative animation studio (Frankfurter) and a sharp, design-led VFX company (modified Baskerville Old Face). While the worlds are seemingly polar opposites, we feel there might be some middle ground worth exploring.

So ... with that little tidbit of info, got any suggestions of faces?
Fire away with any questions too.

Cheers,

Paul
