I'm currently working on some type design for a flag for my thesis show. Both the sans and serif are bespoke. The high contrast serif was very loosely based on Times New Roman and infused with the Didone theme. While comments on any of the characters would be greatly appreciated, I am struggling with the numeral nine. Can it deviate from the vertical axis, reflecting Times? Or, should it conform to the vertical axis? (Both nines are preliminary as well as the metrics.)
Thanks so much!
I saw a scan of the front-page of this 1898 French newspaper, and it's captivated me. I know it's highly unlikely there's an exact match, being so old, but something close would be awesome too. It's somewhat like Landry Gothic, but it's different in the shape of the R and the E's subtle slope down on the top leg, and therefore has too contemporary a feel.
Is anyone familiar with the type used here? This is a Royal Canadian Legion flag, circa 1950's.
Your help is appreciated!
Professional typographers and designers,
I've been redesigning our school newspaper for weeks/months when I can fit it in between my schoolwork.
I'm throwing it up for critique here.
I'll also post what I started with.
Please let me know your honest opinions.
Is the new design more succesful? If so, why?
Is the nameplate too edgy?
I'm eager to hear anything you can offer me.
