calligraphic

I'm a novice and would love some feedback

Forums: 

Hello all,

I'm new here and I'm also new to type design. Having said that, I've been drawing type since I was a child and eventually grew up a little and became a graphic designer along the way. My hobby is now taking a serious turn as it's about time I tried to share and even sell my typeface designs. My first attempt was a hand drawn, all caps, neoclassical serif face that I named 'Carrig'. Carrig being the Irish word for 'rock' (I'm based in Ireland) and the typeface itself was strongly influenced by classic letterforms carved into stone and weathered by time.

So, now I am developing Carrig into a full family and here, with the Roman weight, I have drawn a full set of lowercase characters to suit the style of their uppercase parents.

Looking for an italic Latin/Cyrillic font similar to GFS Solomos

Forums: 

I'm looking for an italic font with wide Latin and Cyrillic support that looks similar to this Greek font, GFS Solomos. Here's a sample, Romans 3:21-26 (the first word is in GFS Decker for small caps):

The closest thing I have right now is the italic version of Garamond, but it's not quite right--the strokes are too thin and the letters are too narrow. The sample below compares similar glyphs, GFS Solomos on left, italic Garamond on right:

Thanks so much in advance!

Die Zauberflöte

Used by Decca Music Group in cover and booklet for DVD set released in 2012.
No luck at Bowfin, where I flipped through "formal connected scripts," Identifont, or MyFonts search--which produced over 900 non-matching fonts for the tags "script-calligraphic."
The Z is very Germanic -- appropriate for Mozart's Die Zauberflöte.
So any idea as to the ID of the font?

Script/Calligraphic font in Chocolate and Tea image

http://www.lawrenceshelter.org/index-3.html

I'd like to identify the script/calligraphic font used for "Chocolate" and "tea at three" in the graphic at the top of the page. A different designer created this logo 12 years ago. By the time I took over as committee chair for this event, no one could even remember who designed the event logo, much less the font.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide,
Anne

Calligraphic / Formal Non-flowing, identifiable uc K, "Spirit of Kent"

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to identify the script font used at the bottom of this logo in "Spirit of Kent" but so far my attempts have proved unfruitful.
I think the K is particularly identifiable.

Logo:

Straightened extract (t, o, f and K):

(If anyone also recognises the font used for "THE KENT SPITFIRE that could also come in handy although I've already found 2 close matches:

Thanks in advance :)

vote: what font to create first?

Forums: 

I working with Tim Botts http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Botts on converting some of his calligraphy to fonts.

Initially, we're going to take one font through the creation process just to get a feel for the process. So, I'd like to start with a good one. Beyond the initial posting, this will help to give me an idea of what to create next as well.

Here are the options that I'm selecting from. The image below is a composite of Tim's calligraphy and Barry Smith's http://studiosmith.blogspot.com/ design work.

If you care to vote, I'd be interested in hearing on the following...
- which is your favorite
- what font would you be most likely to buy, and why

Thanks for you help!

Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.
