New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I design a magazine, each issue is about a specific city. Previous issues have included Sarajevo, Detroit, London and Athens. The next city is Kyoto. I am trying to get in touch with any type designers who live and/or work in Japan, preferably Kyoto. Do you know of anyone? Do you know of any great examples of typefaces produced in Japan (that are Latin/Roman etc not Kanji/Hiragana etc.)
I'm also currently investigating whether stacked/vertical type would be a suitable alternative to regular horizontal type. Can anyone recommend any interesting monospace/unicode faces that would make for a pleasing vertical stack?
Any help or opinions on Japanese type please get in touch! thanks. Feel free to email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the first real font I've ever designed and this is my project for my diploma. It's planned as a font for headlines and sub-headlines in a culture magazine (It doesn't necessarily have to work under 14p). I know that it has small serifs, but I decided to post it into the sans-serif forum nonetheless since I don't really know where to post it otherwise. It's not a serif font because there are only serifs at the bottom and not on every glyph.
I can't present much, I've just done the lower cases, but I hope that I'm going to get some useful feedback here in what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong.
Does anyone know what this font face is for the headline "Natural Woman". I've tried lots of different fonts , like Baskerville, Benton, Miller etc but none seem to match up. Any idea?
Sometimes a surprise, sometimes as expected – MeM is an interactive type system with a wide range of individual personalities.
The eccentric experimental type system created by Elena Schädel and Jakob Runge in 2012. It produces many personalities, each individual and emotive. You will never know which of the alternating letters is going to occur next. Basically, at the heart of it all is MeM: four different weights and letter shapes melded together into one powerful font and shuffled with the sleek usability of OpenType.
wondering what this font is called?
Thanks in advance!
I'm looking for the typeface on Pro Taper specifically the one used in the slideshow images on the home page. I've found similar but nothing that included any italics.
I design a magazine, each issue is about a specific city. The next issue will be about Athens, Greece. I am trying to get in touch with any type designers who live and/or work in Greece, preferably Athens. Do you know of anyone?
The past 2 issues of the magazine have used typefaces created by high profile type designers in appropriate cities and I wish to continue this precedent by representing the city through the typography.
Any help or opinions on Greek type please get in touch! thanks. Feel free to email me here: email@example.com
This is my debut typeface (which is still untitled).
What initially meant to be modular serif inspired by arab calligraphy, turned out into somewhat modernist base with elements used by older serif typeface styles.
Hello could you please help me to identify the font used in this title ?
Many thanks to all
Can anyone identify these headline typefaces from Bon Magazine?
Anyone know what this is?
Hello! I recently watched Blue Valentine and I was touched by it. I've cut a GIF animation of the film title in the end with that beautiful effect of the photo in the back. The typeface reminds me of Knockout by Hoefler & Jones. Is that it? If not, does anyone recognize this font?
Could you identify the font used in this headline?
(I'm sorry but I don't have better quality image, in the original image the edges are straight)
Than you for all the hints.
Hey Guys! Need a quick font match for the picture below, it looks like a font I recognise as being fairly familiar, quality of image isn't that great as it's from a low res file, trying to bring the logo into Vector form so would be nice to be able to retype all the words!
Thanks for all your help!
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.
Hello, I am happy to finally announce the release of my new typeface!

Really need to match the fonts circled in the image. There are two images, one with what I need circled (low-res) and one that's higher res. Here's the link to an online copy if that would help - http://www.zinio.com/reader.jsp?issn=RX1099-6729
I really appreciate the help.
I'd appreciate any comments on my display typeface design called Fillit.
It's nothing fancy, new or groundbreaking – being very novice in type design I did it as an excercise for myself only. The design goal is to create display font for newspaper section headlines that has 1. slab serif general form 2. has plenty of pop = lot of ink per character 3. can form very tight headlines without letters touching each other. 4. to be used in >72 pt
There's a brief specimen attached. I haven't finished all the characters – trying to finish smaller set before doing too much work.
Don't hesitate to be crude :)
A new, hopefully refreshingly mad, typeface just released at Myfonts.
Announcing a new, very round typeface: Circula™. It is a simplified geometric display typeface based on circles. It contains capitals and small capitals only (no lower case), basic symbols, superior and inferior numbers and common fractions. It supports Eastern European, Baltic and Turkish character sets. The medium cut is free. Get it at Myfonts.
Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
Does anyone know which beautiful big font is used in the "main headline" of this site? (It's the bigger font) (it looks like "Stag" to me, but I'm not sure)
Thank you all! :-)
Can anyone identify the typeface used for the text in the red and white boxes?
Coca-cola typeface is similar to American Pop…
any clues appreciated!
