typeface

Hi,

I am a student, currently in the process of purchasing my first font pack. After doing some research on this forum I came across two particular options that seems to fit what I need

Adobe FontFolio Education Essentials,

or

the 1000 fonts from bitstream that are stored with CorelDraw Graphic Suite X5

now my question is which would be better for someone in my position?

Should I stick with the Adobe collection because of the versatility of it's collection, or get the CorelDraw fonts because of the vast immensity in the scale of what it offers? Which of the two would offer me a better ground as far as building up my skills, and collection from?

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some suggestions for a font to contrast ITC Machine. The word "Foundation" will be placed under the logo, which is based off ITC Machine. Ideally I am looking to use all caps if that helps anyone.

Thanks for the suggestions!

My David Thometz Design original digital typeface designs were spotlighted in an article by Allison Rupp in the Knoxville News Sentinel Monday, Feb. 28, along with the work of amazing fellow East Tennessee designers Jeremy Dooley of Chattanooga and Timothy Lyle of Knoxville:

Although this is, in part, a type ID question, I have posted it in general discussions because I would like to know more about this bizarre face than simply a name. On any PDFs downloaded from the JSTOR database, the name and copyright info appear in a distinctive and very amateur-looking typeface. Adobe Reader identifies it as CODE-2000 (TrueType). It is an unusually inconsistent font in many ways, as the attached pictures show. I am sure every typophile out there can pick out the idiosyncrasies for him- or herself. Does anyone know who deigned this face, or what its history entails?

Hi, I've been trying to figure out the name of this lovely Font shown below.
That's a scan of page 14 of "Elementarteilchen", english "Atomised" from Michel Houellebecq.
Seems to be a tricky font - no results with "What the font" or the like.

The "?" and the "ß" are strikingly.

Thanks a lot for the help!

Monotype Imaging Introduces the Camphor Typeface Family into the Monotype Collection

Classic British Typefaces from the 20th Century Provided Inspiration for Nick Job, Designer of Camphor

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has added the 12-font Camphor™ typeface family to the company's Monotype® collection. The new additions are now available from Monotype Imaging's Fonts.com, Linotype.com and ITCFonts.com stores. In addition, Camphor Web fonts are available from Fonts.com Web Fonts for website design.

Ok, so it is that inevitable time in every brand's life when it must be made into a website.

In this case the printed materials would use Gotham Narrow as a body copy font. The question is, which is more like Gotham Narrow: Tahoma or Verdana, and why?

I have adjusted size and tracking to get all three into the same basic space and configuration. Please forgive any little issues.

I am eagerly awaiting interesting comparative notes. Thanks in advance!

Looking to confirm the type information here. The data should be accurate but, let me know if you find any issues.

Lexicon (designed in 1992 by Bram de Does) is pre-eminently suitable for output on laser and other low-resolution printers and for typesetting in small sizes.
Lexicon is therefore the perfect typeface for use in office correspondence) and applications that require highly economical setting (dictionaries, Bibles, timetables, encyclopedias etc.). Lexicon has been used for example in Van Dale's Het Groot Woordenboek der Nederlandse Taal.

Hello,

I'm looking for recommendations on calligraphers/lettering experts who specialise in script typography, particularly the "copperplate script" kind for logo use.

Does anyone have contacts or recommendations?

Hey everyone, anybody know what this face is?

Skolar and support Webfont

Hi,
This is my first post on this forum. I am making a blog for a client who happens to be a Product manager at a large social network company. The blog would be more Daring Fireball style with occasional posts in the long form and many links from the interwebs. In both these format the common point would be the highly insightful yet opinionated commentary.
I have decided to go with Skolar as the primary text for body text. Can you guys suggest a secondary font that you know goes well with Skolar. I tried looking around but could not find great examples with other font combinations.
The other combination that might work is the FF Meta and FF Meta Serif but I would like to use that as the last resort.

Top face is TRAJAN.

How about the brand name face? Anyone?

Last time this worked so fast it made my head spin.

I promise to send the identifier a beautiful HOOK coffee mug. Or tea if you like.

BTW, I never received an address from my last identifier. Your shwag awaits.

Thanks. - Brady

Does anyone know who designed this typeface for the England 2018 world cup bid?

Does anyone know what font this is?
What about similar typefaces?

Thanks very much

We've created a hand drawn script for an ad campaign and our client now wants us to create a typeface for the brand. It's a loose brush script with character variations. It will be drawn out (with an alternate case), cleaned up and traced. General kerning will be considered and it will include a standard punctuation set.

We need someone who can do the technical work and create the typeface for us in the best possible format for use on Mac and PC. Is there anyone out there who can do this or point us in the right direction?

a serif to go with Vitesse Sans

Looking for a serif face that would go well with Vitesse Sans.
Mostly to be used as a secondary typeface for an identity system.
The identity will most likely be in Vitesse Sans.
The serif, should preferably be something that works well for both print and web.
But only print faces are also welcome.
I'm thinking something in contrast to the rectangular aspect of Vitesse.
Any suggestions?

Thank you

‘Sendai’ is a new 6-weight typeface family, designed by British type designer Philip Kelly.
The typeface is comfortable in text usage with the slightly condensed shapes that help save space and also achieve punchy display headlines. The restrained serifs are a nod to the Latin styles of the past. The fonts are available exclusively from Philip Kelly Digital Design directly. The fonts are supplied in OpenType Postscript format which is Mac and Windows compatible. PDF Brochure available via: pkdigital@pkfont.co.uk

what typeface is this

I am woking on a logo. But need the type of the &
Do you know what this one is? seems an odd one to me...

This is how I do it:
I have a personal selection of typefaces of my liking that I keep in a folder (my "best").
I have imported this folder in a set in Font Explorer.
I have created an illustrator file containing a line for every different typeface, one after the other. I can use the function "find&replace" to change all the dummy text to my desired logo word.

How do you do that? Do you use something online like myfonts? Maybe you use your font manager and then you just activate the ones that might work?

The trick is to create a system that is fast, does note engulf the computer, and is portable (think about a freelancer who is often offsite, working in an agency).

Thanks,
P
