New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hello all! I am new to this forum and maybe I guess it's a bit ugly to go straight on to announce a project I am working on. But I hope you might think this is interesting and therefore can forgive me :) It is an iOS app called Font Drafts, designed to boost the font sketching process and I am currently looking for beta testers. If anyone of you are interested, please sign up at the website: http://fontdrafts.com
This seems like a great forum by the way, so I think I might hang around a bit more :)
Here's the logo and some additional information: http://i.imgur.com/90M7zzt.png
For those interested in the job (contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org):
We find that our current logo has a range of issues:
1) It’s too bland. We strived for simple, but ended up with bland.
2) Unrelatable to our primary audience (college students)
3) We strove for: Sleek, high quality, class, professional, fun
We’re looking for a new identity for our upcoming expansion
1) Color scheme. Finding a color scheme that fits us is our primary mission. The colors have to work across the platform
Hey all, so I'm working on updating the identity for a productivity app. The message that needs to be communicated is as follows:
Tasks, Notes, Lists, Outlines
Logo - I've got two logo options I'm choosing between. Both are just concepts so please don't critique kerning, colors or technical tweaks. I need to choose a direction, and it will then be flushed out further. I'm using the typeface Adagio sans for the logo in both cases. I'm leaning towards the page turn as it seems stronger and holds the space better. The dots communicate time management but the mark seems frail to me.
Pétala Pro gave his first steps almost ten years ago. During this time, the quest for perfection had forced several interruptions. It was necessary recalculate the route, tread other ways, discover new maps, and make easy curves. After all, a new milestone on typeface design was reached.
Pétala Pro combines readability with a gentle but strong personality. The smooth and balanced forms shares space with expressive ink traps. The 18 styles of the family – from Thin to Black – allow the flexibility needed to complex design briefs. When designing the different weights, rather than automated solutions, subtle adjustments were made to value the optical qualities of each style. Such care, makes all the difference under extreme conditions.
Comprehensive, affordable and available online, the new App+ License is ideal for apps, games, editable PDFs, and hardware.
With App+, customers can now embed all FontFonts in software, hardware and editable documents that can be viewed, printed or edited.

Feedback is welcome,
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/
