I´m designing my first typography and I would like to listen to experts opinions because Im planning on presenting it on a type expo.
Thanks in advance , Looking forward to read you comments.
Over a year ago I started thinking of new font names, er...a theme of different font names for a different family of different styles :P At last, Beefcakes is in the final stages and is scheduled for release on August 20th, w00t! It is the first of the "Cakes" series, a collection of display fonts inspired by various brush lettering styles. The series will include Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes, and as each typeface is unique (not to mention time-consuming to draw!) they will be released as they're finished...
Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes are trademarks of Rebeletter Studios and may be registered under certain jurisdctions.
Caridade is a bold and powerful script face. It draws some inspiration from heavy brush drawn vintage hand lettering but its heavy weight is much thicker with plenty of impact and more contemporary letterforms. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Heavy weight to the graceful Thin.
Caridade can get the job done for many unique design tasks.
I'm in desperate need of this font for my wedding invitations. I spotted this font in an invitation suite by Mae Mae Paperie and now I have to have it!
Thanks in advance
Ode is a pleasant and vibrant family with a strong personality. It comes in five weights and is equipped with every feature a high quality text typeface needs: ligatures, extended language support and various figure sets as well as a fractions feature. Ideal for everything culinary

Can anyone recognize this simple font?
Thanks in advance,
I have a client who loves Quilline Script Thin for her photoblog, but the font does not have a built in "bold" or "medium" weight feature. A sample of the font is posted below. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what might be a viable substitution?
Thanks in advance for your feedback...
In Quark 6.5, on Max OS 10.4.11, the bold weights of some fonts are not displaying correctly.
This issue is becoming too much to endure, and getting InDesign isn't an option.
Any advice or suggestions are most appreciated.
I've wiped the jaws folder, and that hasn't helped. This is how they appear in font lists.

I'm pleased to announce five new fonts for sale on MyFonts.com:
For the first week, (until March 11th) Typophile readers will get a 20% discount with the code TYPOMAR10.
TypeTogether is proud to introduce Rue Display, an organic, casually ornamental, narrow-faced sans serif designed by Winnie Tan.
Rue's spirited and exploratory design is the materialization of a feeling about fonts as a family of organisms taking on a life of its own, in work and play. It was conceived as a typeface, used as an image and discovered as an ornament.
It comes in 10 weights of light, regular, medium, semibold and bold, each with italics.

I came upon this nice typeface and, as usual, WhatTheFont was useless. Anybody know what it is? I really like the a, c and d.
I recently came across some software with which you can easily make additional weights and styles for your font. I don't know if you have to trace your font again in the program or that it just uses your original vector points. In any case, the software was incredibly expensive, there was no trial version and I couldn't find a place to download it to try it out, so I forgot the name of it.
I've been lurking around Typophile for quite sometime, but never really posted anything. So, here is my first (complete) attempt at a full set of characters. I'd like to hear if anyone thinks this thing has legs, or if it's a lost cause. I know it's got some problems, but that's why I'm here.
Now for your critiquing eyes, Silverback…
I'm making my first font, and releasing betas as I make any little bit of progress (in the same way as open source projects do, since my background is PHP programming).
Is a nice bold condensed script with plenty of ligatures and final forms alternates.
For me is a learning experience, so any feedback is highly appreciated.
You can download it for free from the lobster font mini-site.
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.
What's this? Does anyone know?
just curious what this font is. I know girl skateboards uses it. here's the link
Most discussions of methods to make bold letters use sans serif letters as an example. Since one of the great virtues of FontLab interpolation is that it preserves curve quality and character, I decided to use a serif example that includes curved stems and very irregular forms: Adobe Jenson Pro.
The first thing to do is to put the original outline in the mask layer (default Ctrl+M on Windows). During interpolation, FontLab will display both the result of everything you do and the original state, but having the initial glyph shape in the mask allows you to maintain a visual reference through multiple interpolation passes.
