New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm fairly new to type design and I have been using FontLab's TypeTool program which is great.
I've been developing a font with a client and they have asked if the font could be restricted to a single color or multiple colors when used. I know this probably isn't possible, but I'm quite hopeful that someone may have found a way. We want to do this because non-designers will be using the typeface and it makes for easier 'policing' of the brand colors, I'm not a dictator I promise!
Would greatly appreciate anybody's help.
I've been trying to look for this font for ages.
The first time I saw it was in a title card in an animated series, and I thought that it was custom made, and thus impossible to find on the Internet, but not very long ago, I found it used in a bar's facade, which led me to think that it was a pre-existing font.
The font was white with a black outline, but the TV version had some kind of "reflections". You'll understand better if you look at the image. However, the version I saw in the bar (which I assume is the original font) didn't have them.
The top image is one of the title cards I first saw the font in, and the bottom part is my own (badly-made, I know) recreation of the original look of the font, without the "reflections" seen in the first one, just as I saw it in the bar.
I wanna make a color emoji font, like Apple Emoji font. But I dunno how. I've used Symbola font too. I tried to import the images to the font, but I cannot. I dunno which software for developing the color emoji font.
Can I make it? How? Which the software (for example, Fontlab, FontCreator, etc.) they support and allow to import the images to the font? Need to be in Mac or Windows?
Fonts are single-color. Differently colored outlines or filled-in sections (the hole in the capitol 'P', for example) could be created via the use of two fonts, one or both being useless without the other.
Are there any common such font pairs out there that I should know about, or is this something that I would have to request from someone/build myself?
In medieval text there seems to be a frequent use of red and blue lettering. Does anyone recreating medieval texts (or imitating them in advertising, book cover design, etc.) have a standard Pantone color that best represents these? Absolute precision isn't necessary; I'm just trying to invoke the (admittedly large and diverse) era through the color of the text.
Hello everyone! :D I just joined today and look forward to meeting everyone. I just found this and thought it was quite fun! I figure designers and artistic types will probably do quite well. I ended up getting a 0 (which in this case is a perfect score). Here's the linky!
How can I obtain (if possible!) a decent screen calibration on a 27inch imac screen? Huey? Pantone? Lacie? etc.
Just found this, and thought I'd share it with everyone:
As designers, we sometimes forget that not everyone can see color the same way we do. I found a sweet app that allows you to simulate what color blindness does to your designs, whether it be interface design or the composition of a 4-color poster.
Here's an example of this page as viewed by someone with color blindness:
So this free app for Windows, Linux and Mac simulates how approximately 5% of all men will see your designs. It's a pretty cool app to add to your toolbox o' design stuff.
Anyway, the app is here http://colororacle.cartography.ch/
