typeface

Hey there Typophiles!
I've been interested in type for some years now but never really tried myself at this discipline.

I recently started thinking about a simple sans-serif font, based on my natural way of drawing letters. So I opened a Tumblr to document my creation process and share some studies on well known sans-serif fonts (mainly Helvetica, Futura and Century Gothic). What you'll find now is pictures of some of my very first drafts and visual studies of those fonts (comparing sizes, angles and so on, trying to understand their logic). And hopefully you'll find in some weeks/months/years a final OTF file for you to download.

Here's the site!

A complete font?

Hello, can anybody help with identifying the 'font' used in this logo? I'm redrawing it for a client as part of a refresh/rebrand but I'd like to figure out what the starting point is.

It seems to be pretty Garamond-esque but there are a couple of things throwing it out... Most notably the 'K' and perhaps the 'R'.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me :)

Hi All!

I'm a thesis student at OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design) in Toronto, Canada, and I'm trying to start up a typeface foundry at our school called Xheight.

The foundry will promote, nurture and distribute student typeface design through the web. There's also a printed annual component.

Please help my research out by doing the survey at www.xheight.org ! Suggestions are much appreciated as well :D Thanks!

Monotype Imaging Adds the Bradley Type Handwriting Fonts into the ITC Typeface Collection

Newest Releases Extend the Versatility of Designer Richard Bradley's ITC Bradley Hand Fonts

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading global provider of text imaging solutions, has released the six-font Bradley Type™ family of handwriting fonts into the company's ITC® typeface collection. The newest additions can be licensed and downloaded from Monotype Imaging's Fonts.com, ITCFonts.com and Linotype.com stores. Bradley Type is also available for website design from Fonts.com Web Fonts.

Designed by calligrapher, lettering artist and type designer Richard Bradley, the latest design is intended to be a versatile counterpart to his ITC Bradley Hand™ fonts, released in 1995. "Typefaces are rarely designed in response to public demand, but that's exactly what led Richard back to the drawing board to create Bradley Type," said Allan Haley, director of words and letters at Monotype Imaging. Bradley said, "After listening to so many graphic designers ask for a version without ITC Bradley Hand's rough edges, I knew I had a mandate."

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!

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.

The text file is now attached at the end of this post: http://typophile.com/files/Typefaces.txt

Lexicon

Indices : Typefaces : Lexicon

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
