New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
looking for a font combination for a web editorial project I'm working on (a magazine focused mainly on stories and opinion but also with short news, let's say in a 70/30% proportion). A sidenote: I'm not the graphic designer, guess I'm the "creator".
Since I spend most of my days reading, print and on screen, I really like looking at good typograpghy and even if I'm waaaaay far from being an expert, I'd like to choose a bunch of typefaces myself and then discuss with the graphic designer.
Anyway, I'd like to use a sans for titles/headlines and a serif for long text. The layout is clean, with colors and composition vaguely inspired to the 60-70s italian and european magazines, but It looks like a website, so It's not "old" or "vintage".
This is a test page for fonts that I want to use to create a web design portfolio.
I wanted to use something modern, not too "futuristic" and with a bit of hip to it.
I have doubts about the Ubuntu font for the nav menu. any replacement suggestions would be welcome.
I'm trying to settle on fonts for a logotype that is a compound word (want to distinguish
the 2 parts of the word).
Leaning towards a serif/sans mix but trick is finding a combo that has very similar x-height and shape, and lasting power for a logo.
There are 2 sets of double "Os." This is where I'm stuck, to go with very round or very not round.
Also a lowercase "g" which is probably my favorite letter in double storey form.
Overall look should be friendly, approachable.
I'm leaning towards Minion combined with either Syntax, Meta, Profile or Whitney (the last of which
I don't own and will have to buy).
I recently designed a logo for my brand, using hand lettering as oppose to some kind of typeface. Here's what I've got (feel free to point out any rough spots you think might need refining):
Currently doing some editorial design work and selecting two typefaces, a serif and sans, for the project.
I've settled on Franklin Gothic for the first type family due to legibility, style and weight variations, but for extra flavour and for body copy in feature articles, I'm looking for a serif that matches the same kind of x-height and will harmonise nicely. I thought of Caslon but think perhaps the x-height is too small; Palatino compares in scale however I'm not too sure about the combination of style - any thoughts on these or any serifs that may play happily with Franklin?
I'm working out a logotype for an individual who is committed to using a script font, but who's product directly references the middle ages. So...as a starting point, I'm wondering if anyone can suggest an example of a font that has effectively integrated Blackletter/Medieval/Gothic sensibilities into a fairly clear script font like "English Script."
