Open Source - Modak Devanagari & Latin

Forums: 

Modak is a Free and Open Source, Heavy-Chubby Devanagari-Latin display typeface. The design started off as one of our heavy hand sketched letterform explorations. The characters were cute/round and not bulky/rigid. The consonants and Matras were overlapping, instead of them being successive characters.

The resulting typeface is one of its kind and probably the chubbiest Devanagari typeface to be designed so far.

This project is led by Ek Type, a collective of type designers based in Mumbai focused on designing contemporary Indian typefaces. To contribute, see github.com/girish-dalvi/Modak

Dynamic sans-serif display. Who knows?

Forums: 

Hi everybody,

I am looking for the name of the font below. It’s for a research on dynamic sans-serif fonts, sth like Brezel Grotesk, Founders Grotesk Condensed, etc.

Even if you can’t knock off this one, I am glad for any input for my ongoing research. So if you have other references like the ones already mentioned above, please, don’t hesitate!

Btw: grafik.net is using the font I am looking for in their newsletter!

Many thanks to all of you!

Best, Tobias.

Lichtspiele — A typocalypse display typeface

Cinemas from the early 20th Century are called "Lichtspiele" in Germany. "Lichtspiele" transports you back to a time where neon lights and marquee letters decorated cinema facades.

Of the 5 styles, three have two versions of italics - one for each perspective. Display is your basic style. Neon is inspired by the old neon letters found outside cinemas.
Add Neon Outline to Display or Neon to add another layer to your artwork. Neon 3D is a extruded version of Neon. Screen Credits is based on the liner notes of movie posters.

You can get it at MyFonts for a introduction price of 29,85 USD

Help with a really black didone

Forums: 

Hello friends!
I'm writing because I feel I'm lost with my project.
I need your eyes here, because I'm tired of trying things and it seems this font has no solution.

I want to make "the boldest" didone out there, so I started experimenting and this was my result.

The problem is that some letters (ie the "e" or the "v" etc) don't work in small sizes.
In the lowest part of the image I wrote "Mexico and Pistilli" So you can see what I mean.
Pistilli turns really black (and that's what I want) but Mexico has so many white space between letters that it drives me crazy.

Is there something you suggest?
I tried making the stems of those "open" letters bolder, but it seems it's not the solution.

Any referent?

Thanks!
Max

Dark Angel: A New Release from Alphabet Soup Type Founders

Forums: 


Alphabet Soup Type Founders and Michael Doret are proud to announce the Release of Dark Angel, a “blackletter/hybrid” font. This font had its genesis in a logo sketch for the Anaheim Angels baseball team—thus its name.
Type purists may be appalled by the lack of adherence to traditional forms, but the font should be seen as only “in the spirit of” blackletter, and attempting something that hasn’t been seen or done before—something that feels traditional, yet at the same time fresh and perhaps unexpected.

Geometric Sans for display

Forums: 

Hello all,

First of all I want a thank to the people in this forum for the support and knowledge given, although this is my first post I've been consulting the site on a regular basis and has been always a great help.

I was trying to create a typeface of my own based on early geometric fonts like Kabel or Futura with a contemporary look to work as a display typeface with alternate glyphs and features for titling, but the project has become a monster itself and I'm getting stuck in the way and I'm a bit desperate for a second opinion.

Rip-off of one our font (Oblik Bold)

We found an rip-off of our "Oblik" in Bold weight.

At first it was disturbing to find out something like this, but then I'm now feeling a little empathy for this guy, for the reason he is young (judging by his photo and by his profile description). But this is not the way to build your design career or to go in public without having any responsibility for your acts.

To not duplicate what we wrote, feel free to check it directly on our website:

Let this be an lesson, in educational purpose, to all designers who might have doubts to do such things to any existing, available, on the market or off the market, with ownership design of any kind!

Cheers,
Dusan
