display font

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 :)

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.

Cyrillic & Greek extensions

Hey guys, I just need a bit of advice/opinions really.
I've been commissioned to build a display font for a client which I've done. They are now requesting cyrillic & greek extensions for other territories to use. Now what I'm wondering is what's the norm for this, ie. do you build the extra glyphs into the same font as extra unicode characters or do separate font files for the European, Cyrillic and Greek versions?
Thanks in advance, any help is gratefully appreciated!

Dez Boulder is a Strong-Brewed OpenType display face with Multiple Personalities.

Dezcom Typefaces is proud to announce the release of "Dez Boulder," a rock-on typeface with three personalities on display.

The Dez Boulder family of display faces acts in a supporting role to give meaning to message and context to content. It is a very bold face, not understated. Each of its three personalities (and their sub-personalities) have a different timbre to speak the nuance of your message in a bold voice. Dez Boulder works like a character actor, presenting the author’s lines but not with the deadpan delivery of a news reporter. Boulder develops the role, adding meaning through facial expression, gesture, and body language.

Can anyone help me identify this beautiful VU Magazine cover font? Looks like Parisine, but I think it's other font...

Beautiful swashes on the "U", "M" and "A" letters! Note also the inktrap on that "M"!

Does anyone know?
