Paid typefaces similar to Quicksand

Forums: 

I'm looking for a typeface similar in nature to Quicksand (http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/quicksand), but I need it to not be free.

Really, any very rounded sans serif with various weights would be great. The closest I've found is Sofia Pro Rounded, but if you have any other suggestions, it'd be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Font Usage/ Licensing/ Permission

I'm a student and was wondering about a particular font and whether or not it can be used in a logo design or a poster for a school assignment. Or can this font be used for an actual logo design? I'd just like to know what sort of licensing it has.

There was a font used for the Venice Biennale 2012 by John Morgan Studio. I've e-mailed directly to his studio about licensing and what not and so far received no response. (Most likely very busy, no time to address a student)

Looking for a condensed font with a large x-height

Hello!

It's my first time here, so I'll quickly introduce myself: I'm Carel Fransen, graphic designer from the Netherlands, and currently working on my graduation projects.

For my project, I'm looking for a quality condensed font with a large x-height that does great at small corps-sizes (approx. 6-7 pt).

I have got one font that works very well: Bureau Grot Light. However, I'd like to have some options. Unfortunately, due to the "advanced search"-mechanisms on big font-sites not being that advanced, it's nearly impossible to search for something this specific.

Troubles with html entities referred to specific glyphs (HTML, FontLab)

Forums: 

Hello everyone,
I try to explain you the problem.

I created a typography that has both common (e.g. between "f" and "i") and custom (e.g. between "p" and "p") ligatures and used FontLab to export the font in ttf.
Now I want an HTML page to display the font and I write & #xFB01 for common ligature between "f" and "i".
But where should I operate to display custom ligature between "p" and "p"?

Thank you in advance for your attention!

Online language tool for supported languages

Forums: 

Hi guys,

glad to join this great place.

I have a question: do you know any online tool (or any clever method) to display languages list which are supported by the font? I'm making one and it contains German, Polish & Spanish glyphs, but I don't know which other languages are using the same glyphs as mentioned.

How can I check it ?

Cheers and thank you in advance.

Typeface and Fonts philosophy, history and art

Hello,

I am a new member of this group. I am not a graphic designer, nor a font/typeface designer. However I am fascinated with fonts, their history, philosophy and art. And of course their creators.

Since there is a note saying that any subject can be posted to this forum, here is where I am doing so. However, if there is a more appropriate forum to do so, I would be grateful to know about it.

Thank you,
