Please Critique my first typeface design !

Forums: 

I would like a critique of my first typeface design, it is comprised of 3 versions: a standard clean neo-grotesque, an alternative version that has multiple alternatives, and a "advertising" version that has a much higher x height, along with a shorter ascender/descender line, with a more expressive feel to it. all three versions will be released under the name "Dawson Grotesque"
All advice is appreciated! This has been a project of mine for quite some time — and is my first baby, so please help me make it perfect for its release in the near future !
Thanks .

As Types Grow Older – Re-Release of Grimoire and Sadness

Forums: 

My very first typefaces Sadness and Grimoire have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry I had to ask myself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of my 20 year old fonts?

Problem with Ligatures on Fontlab

Forums: 

Good morning, everyone. I’m new at this forum, although I’ve been reading it since a very long time. My name is Mauricio Villamayor, I'm designing a calligraphic typeface for my thesis and I have a problem in doing it. I hope if you can help me with this situation.

Basically, the problem is with the ligatures. The typography has a lot of them, since the calligraphic characters are more complicated to bond harmonically. The ligatures work in all the combinations, except in the accented (acute accent) letters.
For example, a specific ligature exists for the combination “yo” (which works), but when I create the combination “yó”, it doesn’t work, indicating an error when I compile the ligaduras.

This is the specific error that shows:

Typography for marginal, non-latin writing systems

Forums: 

Hello to anyone reading this.

I primarily work with typographic design of the Javanese script, one of Indonesia's traditional script, here's an image in case you never saw it

It is a very marginal script, without official status anywhere and declining number of users despite it's long history. I was wondering if there are any other writing system with similar situations. I'd like to know how users of other marginal, non-latin script handle their typography. Though generally, I would like to know about the typography scene of other scripts other than Latin and Arab (since those two are the most prominent, is it?)

This is my first post in typophile, so apologies if I made any mistake :)

What font is in this image?

Hello, I used a free favicon generator for the favicon on my profile site - itguyjosh.com - but I forgot to note down the font that I used in creating it. I would like to use the font in more logos/banners, but I have no idea what it could be. I've tried WTF, but none of the suggestions look right to me. I've attached the favicon as a png and appreciate any advice.

Regards,
Josh

Sans, Serif, Stencil, and Inline in one Typeface?

Forums: 

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know of a single typeface that has sans serif, serif, stencil, and inline (or outlined) styles? Again, I'm looking for a single typeface that has all of these styles included—I know, quite a tall order, but I'm curious if one exists. Audree is the only one I know that comes close. It has a so-called normal style, but not a pure sans serif.

Thanks!

Spry Roman

Forums: 

Hi all,
I just wanted to show my first release of 2015. Spry Roman was first created with lettering I did with a Zebra G pointed nib and ink on slightly toothy paper. I rework my lettering in Photoshop, but try to leave the look reasonably close to the original writing for fonts like this. Spry Roman is a fully featured Opentype font. It include Central European language support, a full set of small caps, simple fractions, ordinals, and a variety of ornaments and flourishes.

What Do You Think About Hydrogenic Sans

Forums: 

Hello my name is Jose Luis Ruvalcaba and I'm currently attending The Art Institute of Phoenix. I'm a senior and pursuing a degree in graphic design with a minor in typography. I'm currently enrolled in a font design class and I just completed my typeface! I would love your personal and professional opinion. Please let me know what you like and what would make this typeface better.
