Typeface Comparison: Web Fonts... Tahoma vs. Verdana (IMAGE)

Forums: 

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!

souvenir

Hello,

I am doing research about the souvenir typeface. But suprisenly there's not much ads on the
internet form the '60, '70 maybe '80 using this typeface. Does anyone knows a good site or book were I can find it? Any info about the Souvenir typeface is welcome too.

Thank a lot and greetings

Skolar and support Webfont

Forums: 

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.

Can someone help us create a typeface?

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

Forums: 

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

A smart way to test typefaces for logotype use?

Forums: 

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

Please help! Magazine design - Typefaces for Titles, subtitles and body text

Forums: 

Hello! I'm doing a research and probably a project which the final "product" (only for academic purposes, I emphatize) would be a magazine in which design would be the main subject. I was thinking something in a similar square format as the new Creative Review (after the redesign).

I've looked typefaces such as Apex New, which is one of my favourite "squarish" sans-serifs. Chester Jenkins did an awesome job on that! The typeface is beautiful and it seems to work nicely on body text. (Klavika is beautiful, but I want to see something a little bit different and yet, with some "squarish" proportions)

The other one that seems to fit is "Leitura Sans", by Dino dos Santos for titles and body text.

Help ID this typeface, please!

Hi,

I'm desperately seeking the name of this typeface.

It is used in some of the printed materials for T2 (the tea company) and is featured on the website for SAE Creative (http://www.saecreative.com.au/). Please forgive the subtleties in the attached images, this typeface is used for animated sections that fade in and out, so it is virtually impossible to screen-capture them with any clarity. Please see the link to the SAE Creative website to see the typeface in action. The 1 in particular is very distinctive (see contact page on the SAE website, or second attached image).

Would be so appreciative of any help.

Thanks so much!
