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?

Baton

Forums: 

Dear Typophiles,

We are happy to release our latest typeface, we hope you like it.
Baton is a sans serif typeface with narrow proportions combining eccentric shapes inspired by french vernacular typography with the simplicity of modern sans serifs. Peculiar details and a low contrast make the design slightly strange yet elegant, but it is the exaggerated high and low midline in the uppercase and the small x-height which give Baton its distinctive flair. Relatively wider and more toned down, the lowercase allow Baton to function not only as a display typeface, but also for short texts such as leads in magazine.

any font that is (a) narrow / condensed, and (b) based on Baskerville

Forums: 

Hello All,

In my job, I have to deal with folks who have very little attention span. Often I have to write elevator-pitch summaries for which Narrow / Condensed fonts work much better than Regular version of fonts. Also, earlier I had been using Garamond or Cambria for printed-out presentations, but after reading articles about Baskerville font, I tried out Baskerville Old Face. While the switched to Baskerville Old Face hasn't noticeably improved any success rates, I have received more positive comments about the presentations.

Are there any font recommendations that are simultaneously BOTH
(a) Narrow / Condensed
(b) based on Baskerville (Old Face)

Freely available font recommendations will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Prad

Font with bold, condensed/narrow, cyrillic glyphs, and square angles

Hi, I am new here, and I am already searching for a very particular font:
The features I need are:
- narrow/condensed (width similar to Myriad Pro Bold Condensed one): I have to put long texts in small areas
- bold/black
- square or 45° angles
- contains all the glyphs I need (listed at the end of the message)

I have to put an overlay that simulates a LCD pattern (pixels), so I need a font with strong angles, 0, 45, 90, to avoid

annoying antialiasing glitches.
Do you think such a font exhists?

Narrow All Caps Sans from Transistor - Reveal (video game) Trailer

There's a fairly unique looking R, and the H is very wide. Scope the trailer here, they use the typeface throughout the title sequence:

Thanks in advance! I'd also be interested in finding a very similar light typeface that doesn't have such a unique R, but other similar characteristics.

Cheers!

Sans-serif, narrow, geometrical, lo-case typeface from the masthead of an American 1946 magazine. Scanned.

Hello everyone,

I have attached a scan of the masthead. It reminded me of Wim Crouwel's 1957 Hiroshima poster but this was done almost a decade earlier. The letterforms seem to be drawn on a grid of a 7:2 ratio, if I am correct. Minimal counters and a very graphic, clean appearance.

Thanks in advance!

Sans-serif, narrow, geometric, extra condensed typeface used for the masthead of a 1945 American West Coast magazine. Scanned.

A sans-serif, condensed, narrow, geometrical typeface that seems to be based on a narrow vertical rectangle used as a grid with a 7:2 ratio, perhaps.
It was used for the masthead of an architectural magazine, in 1946. Reminded me of Wim Crouwel's Hiroshima poster (1957) and I wonder if that particular typeface was in turn based on other typographic/visual trends at the time. Thank you!

Wolverhampton Launches

Forums: 

Greater Albion Typefounders has just released it's latest family on Myfonts and Fontspring. Wolverhampton is a new Neo-Victorian face from Greater Albion Typefounders. It's something of an example of starting with a small idea and running with it. This family of three typefaces (Regular, Small Capitals and Capitals) was inspired by a line of lettering seen on a late 19th Century enamel advertisement made by Chromo of Wolverhampton (hence the family name). The family grew, topsy-like, from a recreation of these initial fifteen capital letterforms to the three complete typefaces offered here.

Typeface Comparison: Web Fonts... Tahoma vs. Verdana (IMAGE)

Forums: 

Ok, so it is that inevitable time in every brand's life when it must be made into a website.

In this case the printed materials would use Gotham Narrow as a body copy font. The question is, which is more like Gotham Narrow: Tahoma or Verdana, and why?

I have adjusted size and tracking to get all three into the same basic space and configuration. Please forgive any little issues.

I am eagerly awaiting interesting comparative notes. Thanks in advance!

Hey Guys! Need a quick font match for this picture

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!

Paper Romantic - a narrow display face

Forums: 

This is the first iteration of Paper Romantic, based on a few doodles I found in the margins of an old college notebook. This is the first time I've tackled digitizing any of my little typeface experiments, so any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!

I know the /N/ feels very out of place, but I'm not sure how to resolve that. Also, I can't tell if the lowercase is working or not. Some of the letters seem to fit, while others just look wrong.

Thanks so much!

Célente - A narrow, modern fashion typeface

Forums: 

After 26 hours I finally finished all the Latin capital letters. I still need to do some letters with diactrics, the Polish letters and several ligatures. After that I can finally start the undercast letters and then the rest...

Célente is a narrow, modern yet elegant typeface particularly designed for the fashion industry, though it can be used for virtually anything including book text. I wanted to design a narrow serif typeface with very small serifs - almost like a humanist sans-serif. Eventually the serifs became a bit larger, but still smaller than usual. I would like your opinions and possibly suggestions.

I will make the Z a bit more narrow, the S a bit more wide, and possibly the O and Q a tiny bit more narrow as well.
