Hello! I am looking for the best font to write a printed formal letter to a respectable doctor (a professor) I have never ever written to. It must leave a good impression since he is very bussy and would surely dismiss a poorly written letter. I have the letter written in Word 2013 (Calibri). I can rewrite it in LaTeX (probably using LyX) if necessary. I prefer free fonts but I am willing to pay for a good font if necessary. Thanks for help.
Would love to hear some feedback from experts & general, trying to build a visual identity for a new business venture, The key tags being: Simple, Classy & unique
I am working on a logo design for an independent Italian Research Center that will carry out high quality research in the Human Rights (Transitional Justice) and Development fields and I need some help choosing a typeface to try with this logo.
I’m looking for a typeface that gives the idea of innovation (since it is an innovative center), something modern/contemporary that conveys reliability, assertiveness, knowledge and professionalism.
The logo should make them look professional/serious but with a friendly and human/social feeling at the same time.
All suggestions are welcome.
Greater Albion Typefounders has just released it's latest family on Myfonts and Fontspring. Wolverhampton is a new Neo-Victorian face from Greater Albion Typefounders. It's something of an example of starting with a small idea and running with it. This family of three typefaces (Regular, Small Capitals and Capitals) was inspired by a line of lettering seen on a late 19th Century enamel advertisement made by Chromo of Wolverhampton (hence the family name). The family grew, topsy-like, from a recreation of these initial fifteen capital letterforms to the three complete typefaces offered here.
Doncaster is a bold display face which emphasises legibility and clarity, but which combines those qualities with a distinctive flair. The designs have a timeless quality, making them equally at home today or even in Victorian inspired design work. All of the faces are ideal for poster work, signage or for really eye-catching but not ostentatious headings and titles. Seven faces are offered combining upper and lower case forms with incised and embossed decoration as well as an italic form.
Here is a specimen sheet showing all seven faces:
Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.
Greater Albion's next two releases are now available on Myfonts.com and Fontspring.
I tried What the Font with the attached contemporary sample.
The keyword suggestions were close.
(I don't think there is a lower case.)
When opening the PDF in Illustrator, it said that "Architect-VBold" was missing.
It's my first time in this forum and I'd like to thank you all beforehand for your collaboration. I'm involved in an art commission project for a hospital that involves type. The design concept propose to use poems in the corridors of the emergency area. It's an environmental graphic design project and excuse me if I'm not in the right forum.
I have done some research to find a typeface that will suit the project. So far, the chosen font is PraxisEF Small Caps, which I believe, it works quite well. It looks quite formal yet friendly and not as industrial as, for instance Helvetica. We decided on Small Caps because they reduce visual noise as they don't have ascenders and descenders; it is very important to avoid visual noise as the hospital is a place for healing and calm.
Here are samples of Greater Albion Typefounders' latest two releases, which have just launched on myfonts.com and fontspring.com.
Paragon is a display Roman family of nine faces, combining elements of formality and fun. It embodies a high degree of contrast between near hairline horizontal strokes and bold vertical strokes. The family is offered in three widths and in regular, small capitals and title faces. Use Paragon to lend impact to your next design project.
Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.

Greater Albion has just released three new families on Myfonts.com.
Jonquin was inspired by some hand lettering seen on a World -War One recruiting poster. It’s a family of three faces for display work and headings designed to be used readily as an 'All-Capitals' face as well as in upper and lower case format. Regular and bold weights are offered, as well as an even more decorative incised form. The whole family is ideally suited for poster and advertising work, as well as book and record covers and period themed signage.
I'm trying to remember what font this is. I can't remember where I got it, but I'd like to buy it.
It's a slightly loose, yet formal handwritten script with some mildly swashed caps.
