Flair Headline—Wide Didone

Forums: 


Hello, Typophile! Looking on feedback on a new typeface I’m working on; it’s based on my current logotype.

It’s a wide-set display didone. My design uses hairline serifs, and then flared shapes that flow from the hairline to construct letterforms that usually are defined by serifs, where a hairline serif would be too ill-defined.

Here is my newly modified logotype that I am expanding into a typeface, I added a curl to the /R/ leg, as well as tracked out my first name.

"Columbia Titling" on sale at MyFonts ($8 for the family!)

Forums: 

My new typeface, "Columbia Titling", is now on sale at MyFonts and for a limited time is just $8 for four weights!

Columbia Titling is an titling-caps display family based on wide Clarendon-style wood type and industrial signage design from the late-19th and early-20th Century. It includes a small set of OpenType features, including both tabular and proportional figures, special superscript ordinal suffixes, underlined superscript alternate letters, and OpenType fractions. The typeface takes its name from the historic S.S. Columbia, a steamboat launched in 1903. Though not a true reproduction, the wide, slab serif letterforms on the front of the Columbia's wheelhouse provided some inspiration for to develop this typeface. Enjoy!

Announcing Paragraph Stretch

Forums: 

When merely "extended" just would not do, here is Paragraph Stretch™: a super extended or elongated geometric display typeface. It is a modular unicase typeface: the capitals and lower case fit the same height and width, so they are interchangeable: fancy a round "W" in all caps? Use the lower case. Want a straight "x" in lower case? Use the cap. And so on. Designed for use at larger sizes for logotypes, short titles or headings. It supports Western plus Nordic, Eastern European and Turkish languages.

Available from MyFonts.

Wide Gothic on Jessica Hische's site

Hello! I'm trying to find the typeface Jessica Hische uses for the navigational items on her site (Type, Design, Illustration, Back, More etc.) I'm being tripped up by the nice little flourishes in the K, R, etc. Is it possible that it's a custom typeface? Alternatives are also welcome, I really like the proportions that one has going on-- wide but compact, legible very small, etc. Thanks! http://www.jessicahische.com/

Rokkan "R" + need some similar fonts

I'm looking for some sans fonts with thick (bold/black), wide, low x-height capital letters. Some ideas I've tried already are Neutra Display, Agenda Black, Nevis... along those lines. I often see these fonts with wide kerning as subtext in logos.

I know this is only one letter, but very similar to Rokkans R: http://rokkan.com/imgs/rokkan_logo_header.png
(If anyone knows that specific R that would be great too)

I will find some more examples. Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post in.

Hey Guys, we were asked to make a font under these conditions:

- Use only Horizontal and Vertical Lines
- Cannot simulate a curve leaving pixels white on the corners.
- Uppercase Characters and Numbers Only.

This is what i have so far - http://fontstruct.fontshop.com/fontstructions/show/nepo_3

- Height is 7px and Width is 10px

- Small Version

- Medium

Some of my thoughts:

- The D looks weird
- Is my X Valid?
- Other ways to make the M, N and W ?
- The S and the 5 look too much alike?
- Help with Spacing

(x) Font used on SAG Awards titles / wide grotesque w/ pointed tops - Luxury Gold {Tamas}

I'm going nuts trying to identify this wide, geometric sans which I've seen on my local Fox channel's news graphics and most recently on the Screen Actors Guild awards on January 23, 2010. I've come across likely candidates (Trade Gothic Extended, Aviano Sans, Doublewide) but none of those have the exact letterforms, especially the sharp point angles of capital M and W. The letterforms have the sharp angle characteristics of Metro sans (Dwiggins) but in an exaggerated extended way. The news channel graphics have shown this in upper and lowercase, while the SAG awards used all caps. HELP!
