The Sintesi family is growing. The name for the typeface is missing. Help me with your vote!

New member of the Sintesi Superfamily.


Existing font Sintesi.

Sintesi diffears from the usual conformation of a Megafamily.
Strictly speaking are both Sintesi and the new release semiserif fonts.

Indeed the two sisters could not be different. While Sintesi unfolds its traditional character, its strong contrast and the perceptible feather-ductus the new release features robust and contemporary forms.

Which naming do you consider appropriate to describe this situation? Thanks for your vote and suggestions.

Font Management — Best Practices

Forums: 

Can anyone advise as to a "best practices" when managing the fonts on one's system?
I am going bonkers these days trying to manage all my typefaces. I use Linotype's Font Explorer, but it doesnt seem to do the job or i am doing something wrong. Of particular frustration is when running into multiple versions of one typeface (i.e. Futura — I have cuts from several different foundries and have to use them on different jobs, so i cant just trash the others— i turn them on and off as needed). And secondly, is there an alternative to Font Explorer? Do any of these Font Management Systems really beat all the others? Or are they all just the same? Which one is truly the BEST? Surely someone on Typophile can answer this?

Wide Gothic on Jessica Hische's site

Hello! I'm trying to find the typeface Jessica Hische uses for the navigational items on her site (Type, Design, Illustration, Back, More etc.) I'm being tripped up by the nice little flourishes in the K, R, etc. Is it possible that it's a custom typeface? Alternatives are also welcome, I really like the proportions that one has going on-- wide but compact, legible very small, etc. Thanks! http://www.jessicahische.com/

Beginner font packages comparison

Forums: 

Hi,

I am a student, currently in the process of purchasing my first font pack. After doing some research on this forum I came across two particular options that seems to fit what I need

Adobe FontFolio Education Essentials,

or

the 1000 fonts from bitstream that are stored with CorelDraw Graphic Suite X5

now my question is which would be better for someone in my position?

Should I stick with the Adobe collection because of the versatility of it's collection, or get the CorelDraw fonts because of the vast immensity in the scale of what it offers? Which of the two would offer me a better ground as far as building up my skills, and collection from?

The Fontry Releases ARB 66 Neonline Family (link restored)

Forums: 

from Michael Adkins...

Beginning in January, 1932, Becker, at the request of then-editor E. Thomas Kelly, supplied SIGNS of the Times magazine's new Art and Design section with an alphabet a month, a project predicted to last only two years. Misjuding the popularity of the "series," it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally two months before Becker's death in 1959, for a grand total of 320 alphabets, a nearly perfect, uninterrupted run. In late 1941, almost ten years after the first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in bookform under the title, "100 Alphabets," by Alf R. Becker.

As published in June, 1937, this is the description that accompanied Becker's 66th alphabet, Neonline:

“NEONLINE BLOCK, alphabet No. 66 in Alf R. Becker’s SIGNS of the Times series, is a very bold, modern style for feature display lettering. Care should be taken in the laying out of this alphabet, and every letter should be made as bold as possible...”

Font Manager for Windows 7

Forums: 

Hi,

I have been a longtime user of Linotype's Font Explorer X on the Mac. I have bought a new Windows 7 (x64) PC and see that there is no current version of Font Explorer X for Windows. I am looking for a comparable replacement. I would like the software to have the ability to activate/deactivate fonts and some Adobe CS5 integration as I use CS5 a lot in my work. Can anyone make any recommendations?

Also on a side note, How do I transfer my existing font library to Windows, I know there has to be some sort of conversion any help would be great.

Thanks

Rearranging the default character set of a typeface

I have been corresponding with Hoefler Frere about customizing the standard character set for Whitney. Whitney has a default character set and an alternate set. We want to have some of the alternate characters to replace their default characters in the main set, and are told that choosing an alternate character can only be done manually, one at a time, through the glyphs palatte in InDesign/Illustrator.
