I've got a brief to make a small book/booklet in the style of a "Dockers Workbook" celebrating one man (union leader Walt Cunningham's) life on the docks of Hull between 1950's-1980's.
i have been looking everywhere for a nice clear legible serif typeface to use for my body copy , i found one that i loved FF Scala Pro Regular http://www.fontshop.com/fonts/downloads/fontfont/ff_scala_pro/ it works n perfectly with the ethos of my type having been use in books depicting democratic revolutions/movements and in Museum booklets.The elegance of this typeface is exactly what i need but don't have the € 299.00 to purchase it on a student's income.
So I've more or less finished my 2nd font ever, "Sanford". It's a regular visitor on the whatthefont forums, but even though it gets ID'd nobody can ever provide a link to buy/download it. It's been digitized but here's no standard font file for it anywhere online.
[Fontlab Studio 5] I'm building a font that is small caps, in other words, all the letters are uniform in width. I meticulously kerned the lowercase first, and I'd like to apply to lowercase kerning to the uppercase, which I did using kerning classes, i.e. _kern1: a' A
However, I would also like that same kerning to apply to the Uppercase-to-Uppercase, i.e. the kerning from fa to be the same as FA.
Using the classes, and putting a' A in the same class seems to only apply the kerning to Fa, and not FA.
Any help is appreciated.
What's everyone's opinion: bullet points vs. paragraph ad copy? I'm talking about a full page ad here, and meaningful communication with the reader. Are bullet points boring? Is paragraph-style copy too intimidating to read? Does it depend on the situation?
I'm currently redesigning a magazine for a client who has a very low budget (almost non-existent). I'm at the stage of deciding which fonts to use for body copy. I don't think I'll get anywhere with free fonts, hence I chose Museo Sans for display and captioning. I'd like to look into alternatives for similar prices as the Exljbris 'free' fonts ($15-30 per weight).
I like Calluna, but I'd prefer it if the magazine didn't end up looking like an Exljbris specimen.
Has anyone ever worked with a good, usable, cheap serif font for body copy use in a long document like a magazine or book?
I've just discovered a web design company in the Philippines has entirely copied my personal portfolio website and are using it as their own. I created mine a few months ago and a little while ago, I noticed a particular IP address in Manila had been downloading all the pages.
They've directly copied my code (even leaving in my analytics tracking code and my name in the image alt tags!) and used my graphics as well (icons, navigation, etc). They've also left in a photograph of my work in the slideshow on the front page.
As I've never encountered this before, I was wondering if anyone knows anything I could do about it?
