Hey,

I'm working on a logo for a pop duo band - "Mary and Liv." I was planning on putting "Liv" in Shelby because I love the "L" of that typeface but not so much the "M." I'm not asking you to design this logo for me at all, just looking to see if anyone had a typeface recommendation. :)

Hi gang!
Can you help me to identify this type?
thanks and have a good weekend :)

Does anybody know what font this might be?

Thank you! :D

Is Times Roman the first ever custom typeface for a newspaper? I already tried to use both searches (google and typophile's) for some old thread I remember being about the subject, with no luck...
So far the most useful has been: Historic timeline of significant typefaces concerned with typography, somewhat compact in nature.

Hi guys,

First post. Great site.

I am looking for old italian typefaces, or references to this so that I may recreate certain aspects.

Everything helps.

Jerry.

The Power of the Engine

Victorian revivals and inspirations often seize on the period’s tendency toward florid decoration. However, the times were also the final surge of the industrial revolution, a time that witnessed the ultimate development in steam, diesel and oil: engines of all kinds. Engine Nine captures the nitty-gritty of a hard-boned indomitable age, boundless in its faith in the technologies of iron and steel, tempered by half-remembered neo-classical details such as the verticality of neo-gothic windows, and finely detailed finials. It’s all here in the brute strength of the verticals, the blackness of the tight setting, the contrasting delicacy of the terminal serifs.

Anyone know what the "PRIMOS" typeface is?

I've always said "gill" as in "gill of a fish." However, a fellow student always pronounces it like the girls name "Jill". Which is correct?

I just got an iMac and wondered, why all the Indian-name typefaces? I assume they include Indian character glyphs, but why so many? Why are they seemingly the same? For example, the following look (nearly) identical (and these probably aren't even comprehensive because I stopped at "M"):

Set 1:

Malayalam
Bangla
Lao
Gurmukhi
Kannada
Myanmar

Set 2:

Bangala Sangram
Devanagari MT
Gjuarati Sangram
Inai Mathi
Lao Sangram
Myanmar Sangram
Malayalam Sangram

Just curious.

Simplepolator allows you to interpolate compatible glyphs in the same font, without leaving FontLab nor interrupting your workflow.

Simply select two compatible glyphs and run the macro:
Five new glyphs will be automatically created, allowing you to choose the best variation.

For Immediate Release:
Alameda, CA - May 24th, 2012

Delve Fonts releases Oktal Mono, a new typeface by Joachim Müller-Lancé and Erik Adigard.

A monospaced type family composed of entirely mono-linear and modular structure, Oktal Mono first began in a design-philosophical discourse between Joachim Müller-Lancé and Erik Adigard of the design studio M-A-D in Sausalito, California. The typeface later came to life as a design experiment wherein a type designer (Joachim) and a graphic designer (Erik) collaborate each in their own capacity, from within their respective disciplines.

FF SCUBA, a readable contemporary sans, designed by Felix Braden @floodfonts, is now available at Fontshop. FF SCUBA instantly conquered Fontshop's most popular font charts! Download the complete FF SCUBA type specimen as a PDF file at Floodfonts

I design a magazine, each issue is about a specific city. The next issue will be about Athens, Greece. I am trying to get in touch with any type designers who live and/or work in Greece, preferably Athens. Do you know of anyone?

The past 2 issues of the magazine have used typefaces created by high profile type designers in appropriate cities and I wish to continue this precedent by representing the city through the typography.

Any help or opinions on Greek type please get in touch! thanks. Feel free to email me here: hello@luketonge.com

We welcome the very talented Alisa Nowak and her Eskapade to TypeTogether's family.

The Eskapade family is the result of research confronting Roman and German blackletter forms, mainly fraktur letters. The idea is to adapt these broken forms for a contemporary use instead of creating a faithful revival of a historical typeface.

We are pleased to announce that the expected sans serif counterpart to the award-winning Adelle is here.

This sans serif proposes a cleaner and more spirited take on the traditional grotesque sans. As typical with TypeTogether fonts, the most demanding editorial design pieces were taken into consideration when engineering Adelle Sans. The combination of its lively character and unobstrusive appearance that is inherent to grotesque sans serifs make it an utterly versatile tool for any imaginable graphic application, whether it is branding, signage or advertising. Without any doubt, the key word behind Adelle Sans’ design is flexibility.

Pretty basic question, but I couldn't find an answer. Here it is:

I'm expanding a typeface to include old style numerals and small capitals. I have a draft of all these glyphs drawn in FontLab. How would you go about proofing these? I see that you can print up glyph tables in FontLab, but I'm wondering if there is an effective way to create specimen sheets with all these new glyphs in the context of the larger typeface? Ideally, I'd like to print them out. Thank you,

Luke
