Open Source - Modak Devanagari & Latin

Forums: 

Modak is a Free and Open Source, Heavy-Chubby Devanagari-Latin display typeface. The design started off as one of our heavy hand sketched letterform explorations. The characters were cute/round and not bulky/rigid. The consonants and Matras were overlapping, instead of them being successive characters.

The resulting typeface is one of its kind and probably the chubbiest Devanagari typeface to be designed so far.

This project is led by Ek Type, a collective of type designers based in Mumbai focused on designing contemporary Indian typefaces. To contribute, see github.com/girish-dalvi/Modak

BOXDON - latin typeface for vertical layout

Forums: 

Hello Typephile members.

I've released my typeface "BOXDON" which was especially designed for vertical layout. The typeface looks like boxes or playing blocks with minimal counter space to enhance 'stacked' feeling as much as possible.

In general, Japanese, Chinese and Mongolian, etc. is well known as languages which can have vertical layout system. However, even in usage of Latin alphabets, we can see some examples of vertical layout as building signage and spine of books. Then I thought that we have possibility to design special typeface for vertical layout to dig out expansion of type design world.

I hope this typeface gives spicy inspiration to your graphic design..

Looking for a slab serif with a light appeal, alternatives to Archer

Forums: 

Hi all,
I'm working on a farm to table restaurant design. But it will be more than a restaurant, with packaging and food products down the line.
I'm looking for a slab serif that has some light, somewhat feminine qualities. The brand I'm working on has a light feel to it, and I don't want to use a thick slab to move in on that.

I know lots of designers deride archer as overused, but it's still stands up.

Just wondering if anyone knows of a slab serif that has multiple weights that could have similar qualities.

Fonts in Logo

This logo was developed recently and it has been unusually difficult trying to get an answer out of the brand agency as to what font(s) make up the logo they have developed. I have tried to match up a font but so far unsuccessfully.

It would be great if anyone could help me id the font in this logo so we can build some new creative inline with the logo design.

Thanks,
Luke

Fillit display font critique

Forums: 

Hi,

I'd appreciate any comments on my display typeface design called Fillit.

It's nothing fancy, new or groundbreaking – being very novice in type design I did it as an excercise for myself only. The design goal is to create display font for newspaper section headlines that has 1. slab serif general form 2. has plenty of pop = lot of ink per character 3. can form very tight headlines without letters touching each other. 4. to be used in >72 pt

There's a brief specimen attached. I haven't finished all the characters – trying to finish smaller set before doing too much work.

Don't hesitate to be crude :)

Silverback v.2 (First font revisited)

Forums: 

A few people saw the original Silverback, but now it's back from the drawing board. I was so excited about the results, I thought it could deserve a new thread. Thanks to Justin_Ch and riccard0 for their thoughts on the original.

An all-caps face, Silverback was inspired by old stock certificates, bill heads, and other monetary documents.

I'm in to process of importing the characters into a font program, so please excuse any spacing issues for now. I'm really just looking for thoughts on letterforms and how they work together (if they do at all).

Here are the characters I have done so far, and the attached PDF includes some set text.
