The typeface Guia by Tânia Raposo has been her final project at the type]media Master in The Hague. “Guia” is the Portuguese word for “Guide”. In this guest article on opentype.info, Tânia explains the development of her typeface:
I'm hoping you can help. A collegue of mine has been trying to find this font for quite some time. Google research seems to have turned up very little, but maybe some of you typophiles might know.
It's from the Famous Five TV show screened during the 70's, hopefully this image will help with identification.
Just for clarification, it's the "Famous Five" text rather than Enid's singnature :)
Thanks in Advance,
Hello all, long time lurker, first-time poster.
This scan (doctored, original in metallic silver over brown) is from a series of touristic brochures made in Italy no more than five years ago. I have to make a new one of those, but for the life of me cannot identify this font (and the original designer is proving extremely hard to get in touch with). What The Font has a hard time with it and brings to no conclusive results. The same goes with Identifont and fontshop's type navigator.
This is a promo typeface containing glyphs from 11 graduation projects of Type&Typography(A type design CPD programme in Moscow, Russia).
If you type in a name of a project you get a font logo.
Feel free to download this font and poster.

I was wondering if i may have some assistance in a logo i am creating at the moment. I have licensed metroscript and would like to increase the contrast so the logo is scaleable and legible in small sizes.
So far i have filled the "O"'s counter, as well as the "A"'s to increase legibility, however I am still struggling to add contrast to the logo.
Are there any tips you might have?
With all the coverage of Lebron on tv lately there have been a ton of shots outside Madison Square Garden. All of the reporters seem to be in the same place and I couldn't help but notice the lettering on the awning behind them (pictured).
At first glance I thought this to be ITC Blair or Sackers Gothic Heavy but the G doesn't match up. Anybody have any idea whether this is actually a typeface or just a modification of one of the others?
I'm looking for a typeface to start a personal book cover design project with.
There is a Phaidon book titled "Cave Art," which is a beautiful book that is currently being sold with an ill thought-out dust jacket.
I'm hoping to make my own dust jacket for the book – at least it will look better on my shelf – and was hoping to get this community's opinions on an appropriate typeface to begin the redesign project with.
In Derek Birdsall's "Notes on Book Design," the author talks about a book he produced (also as a personal project) about human technology though history and pre-history. His take on hyphenating the word "technology" in the title seems to modernize the potentially stodginess of the all-caps display serif.
I have a rush job of making separations for screen printing that I took on as a favor and I'm not sure what typeface this is. I also don't want to have to take the time to pen tool it if I don't have to.
If possible, I'd like a starting point for "Sand Gnats." I've exhausted my font collection as well as a free site or two's script inventories with no luck.
I decided to rework the visual system of a personal web project of mine from scratch, and am having problems deciding on a new logoface for it. Right now I'm just using Helvetica, but I'm looking for something with the same sturdiness and transparency, but a little more playfulness and character. The site focus is images and video, so the interface, and ultimately the visual system as a whole, should disappear when it needs to.
The site is social, and this would pretty much be the logotype.
I'm kind of liking Brauer Neue, but I know that I can do better. I was hoping someone might have some suggestions. Already went through a few foundries websites and came up with nothing.
Thanks a lot!
During the summer 2009 we’ve been asked by Real Simple to customize Parisine PTF for their own use. We've adjusted few things for Real Simple and created new weights. Today, we've integrated this idea of intermediate weights into Parisine PTF Gris: A new Regular between the original Parisine PTF Clair Bold and Parisine PTF Regular (as on the image above). Bold follow same mechanism. Finally, it’s also why this new sub-family was called *Gris* (Gray in English).
Currently doing some editorial design work and selecting two typefaces, a serif and sans, for the project.
I've settled on Franklin Gothic for the first type family due to legibility, style and weight variations, but for extra flavour and for body copy in feature articles, I'm looking for a serif that matches the same kind of x-height and will harmonise nicely. I thought of Caslon but think perhaps the x-height is too small; Palatino compares in scale however I'm not too sure about the combination of style - any thoughts on these or any serifs that may play happily with Franklin?
Can anyone please help me identify the "PROA" typeface?
Hey, working on some infographics/graphic design projects, and came across this (in the attachments) while doing some creative research.
I was just wondering if anyone could name the font used for both the main titles, and the "Cloud City" part in the "Bespin" poster. Thanks!

This is the first iteration of Paper Romantic, based on a few doodles I found in the margins of an old college notebook. This is the first time I've tackled digitizing any of my little typeface experiments, so any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!
I know the /N/ feels very out of place, but I'm not sure how to resolve that. Also, I can't tell if the lowercase is working or not. Some of the letters seem to fit, while others just look wrong.
Thanks so much!
Gah, I've never done this before and debated promoting the typeface here at all, but since you all give me inspiration and happiness with your new releases, it would be selfish of me not to share with you all. So sheepishly, here it is.
The other day I release Ne10, a new stencil typeface I designed, through YWFT. This stencil font takes its inspiration from a neon sign at my local pizzeria without being blatant in its reference. I found myself staring at the sign too often, so I decided to try to work it out digitally. While sketching it up I realized that this could work rather nicely as a stencil font, instead of a faux 3D neon looking thing. So although the inspiration is neon, the result is more modern looking. Hopefully some of you will like it.
Hi all. I am trying to identify this font which shares traits with Trajan. Uppercase letters such as the /N/ are obviously very similar, but this is a bit sharper. Lowercase letters have some distinct differences from other fonts typically paired with Trajan. Most notably the /a/ and /f/.
Any ideas here? All help is greatly appreciated.
I am choosing between R and K. Which one is more appropriate to the design?
Hi, any help identifying this typeface used in a Folkways album cover designed by Ronald Clyne would be appreciated!
Not sure if it's ever been digitized so any similar suggestions would be great.
looking for a typeface (sans serif pref) that is made up of dashes... not too short or dot-like, but a longer heftier dash. ideally not something too thin - for a logo, so I need it to have a bit of weight.
thx for any pointers!
Hello to everyone, i'm a graphic spanish designer.
Recently I knew the judgement of my personal trial with Renault, a famous french car brand, who did an spanish and south-american advertising campaign with some caracters with a typeface that it was entirely developed by me.
Now the process is that my lawyer, specialist in intelectual property, and me are creating the apellation text to try change the judgement (other judge).
STYLO, what's the typeface?
Hello fellow typophiles!
With my first post I come to present you the new corporate font of the Centro Portugues de Design (Portuguese Design Center). It`s not a Design ruling body per se, but it`s probably the most important organization for design in Portugal.
In the attached image you can see their new sans serif corporate font, CPD Sans, designed by Hugo d`Alte in 2009 or 2010.
They presented this font on their Facebook page and I immediately recognized it and made a little comparison with FF DIN, which i`m sure everyone here knows.
I pasted their image and wrote the same set of characters on top of it, using FF DIN, size 34pt. The kerning is exactly the same.
This is a very quick and rough (very rough) draft of my typeface. I was just looking for feedback and everyones first impressions keep in mind this is my first typeface and I am relatively new to the process.
I have currently only done the lowercase just because I'm not 100% sure what direction I should be going in. I was going for an italic serif loosely based off of Bodoni and I tried to go with the Old style/ Transitional style.
First impression, critique, technical aspects any comment will be helpful thank you.
I'm really having trouble with c/e/f/y/k/s/ but of course I will take any advice on all or any of the letters.
Can any of you recommend a similar font to this? Or perhaps even the original it has been set in?
I am looking to identify the attached font. It might be a custom face, if so does anyone have any recommendations for a similar typeface? Thank you!
