Okay, so I thought this might be of interest to you all:
There is a book called Sign Painters that came out several months ago by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon. Faythe Levine was the one who made that documentary called Handmade Nation. They have also made a movie called Sign Painters as well and there will be a free screening at UCLA Fowler Museum on July 25th (for folks living in Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura County). There are screenings in other cities of the world as well.
what is the difference between the "Euro-Currency Sign" and "Euro Sign"? When is which one used? I live in Europe but never heard of the "Euro-Currency Sign" before. I just came across it here: http://alanwood.net/unicode/currency_symbols.html
Can someone enlighten me please?
Does anybody know the font used on this theatre review sign attached?
This is a compilation of glyphs used on signs related to the Hyperion Corporation in the game Borderlands 2.
These are slanted oddly due to perspective of the viewer in the reference photos, and because many of the signs use slanted text that changes slant across each line. Differing sizes of text are because I left all text at the resolution they appeared in the references.
The signs only use capitals, and the period is a square. Most of the font is pretty unremarkable, but hopefully the G is distinctive enough to be recognized.
The attached file is the unmodified image that these were crudely ripped from.
made these custom kitchen blocks a while back - need to customize with a name for a customer, but i cannot remember what font i used, and i have 1000's of fonts installed on my computer....after searching about 1/4 of them, i've gone cross eyed and am getting frustrated...my customer paid for her sign (i thought i had the font written down), but i cannot work on it because i don't know what font i used....ugh.
thank you so much for your help!!
I'd like to identity this font please.
Hi people. Any ideas for a good match for this sign?
Greater Albion's next two releases are now available on Myfonts.com and Fontspring.
I'm trying to identify this font to match some previously existing artwork. Any ideas? My searches have yet to yield results.
Greater Albion Typefounders has just released the Spillsbury family on Myfonts.com.
Spillsbury was inspired by some examples of 1920s signwriting (principally seen on the side of some vintage vans-good thing they were in a photograph and not on the move!).
Spillsbury draws inspiration from these sources to provide a unique combination of legibility and flair, which echoes the charm of advertising and publicity material from the halcyon days of the 1920s.
A basic range of four display faces os offered - Regular, Plain (not all that plain really!), Shaded and Shadowed.
Greater Albion have just released two new families on Myfonts and Fontspring.
Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces. It's a family of three 'all capital' faces. A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic - with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text - which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look. It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility. It's ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.
Greater Albion Typefounders have just released the Worthing family on Myfonts.com and Fontspring (fonts.com release to follow).
Worthing aims to combine Victorian charm with modern-day requirements for legibility and clarity, and we hope, demonstrates that traditional elegance still has its place in the modern world. Meanwhile, for those who our curious about the naming of our fonts, Mr Lloyd our designer was reading Mr Wells (H. G.) “War of the Worlds” recently. No doubt some of you will remember the part that Worthing in Sussex played in that story. Worthing is offered in three styles, regular, alternate and shaded. It's ideal for Victorian and Edwardian era inspired design work, posters and signage, as well as for book covers, chapter headings and so forth.
Exact science, no doubt great killjoy for an artistic mind. Yet a valuable inspiration, so relax, have a break, have a SIT STAT.

saw this on a draft of a poster for sint lucas "bold italic" 2008
This is a lay-up, I'm sure. I recognize the C, I just can't place it without the lowercase.
Tradition meets tomorrow in Mexborough-Mexborough has just been released by Greater Albion and is being offered at 30% introductory discount on Myfonts.com. Here's a specimen sheet showing the six members of the Mexborough family.
i have been asked to do some design work for this place, and they requested that i use the same font as on their sign. i have searched every way i know how to, but cannot find this one on my own. please someone help.
Hello, who can tell me what kind of font this is.
I feel really silly asking this question, since i'm pretty sure the answer is obvious, however, I just can't remember what font this is! I keep thinking I know it, but can't seem to find it anywhere.
Can someone help? I know it's not the best photo, but I need to know the font for Pololu on the sign on the building.
