Hi everybody, I hope you like our new release, available at MyFonts.
We are happy to release our latest typeface, we hope you like it.
Baton is a sans serif typeface with narrow proportions combining eccentric shapes inspired by french vernacular typography with the simplicity of modern sans serifs. Peculiar details and a low contrast make the design slightly strange yet elegant, but it is the exaggerated high and low midline in the uppercase and the small x-height which give Baton its distinctive flair. Relatively wider and more toned down, the lowercase allow Baton to function not only as a display typeface, but also for short texts such as leads in magazine.
After reading a few old posts about appropriate sans serifs to accompany classic serifs, I decided to make an attempt at designing a sans serif to accompany the Benedictine Pro face. Tentatively named Benedict Sans, here's what has been done so far for the regular weight (to be followed by book and bold):
Hello everyone! You've been recommended as the best ones to go to... and I've already tried to other ID links with no joy.
It's kinda close to a few things, but nothing exact that I can identify - can anyone help identify this typeface?
Many thanks in advance!
Can someone help me identify what font is used in the west elm logo?
Thank you for your help!
Can anyone please help me with finding a similar font to the one on these pharmacy bottles. I like that it has the art nouveau features, but is still somehow contemporary and simple.
Thanks a lot!
Hello all! I recently launched a new font design project on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/59648831/uniform-a-revolutionary-new...
The font is a geometric sans serif type family, but what makes it unique is that the condensed weights are straight-sided, not squished ovals like all other geometric type families out there.
Please pass the word along to your designer/type loving friends! I really want to be able to create this cool new typeface but without the funding there is no way I will have the free time to work on it.

I have seen but cannot remember the name of a beautiful and interesting font distinguished and perhaps most identifiable by its letter "f".
I am trying to find this font but wasn't abel to ID it myself. I thought URW Grotesk but the f seems different. Thank you so much for support.
I've been quite perplexed over the last few days trying to figure out what this particular typeface is.
It appears on the opening sequence of Gregory Peck's 1962 film "To Kill a Mockingbird." The typography struck me as beautifully modern but I am yet to determine what it is set in. I think there's another forum on this topic that suggested Akzidenz Grotesk as being a likely candidate, however, they didn't arrive at any solid conclusions and I'm adamant that someone out there knows! Such is my curiosity that I've created an outlined vector file showing the differences that are most apparent to me.
Thanks for your help!
Hi! Would like to ask for help in identifying the typeface/font in the attached image.
Does anyone know what typeface is used for "and nobody noticed the mouse" ?
Many thanks in advance for any help or pointers you can give.
Here I am to present you this Riviera, my first attempt to design a font. The project started in the late 2005, when I hand-designed some capital letters to present a project.
Non Format have been using a nice typeface lately but not sure what it is. I thought it was Brown by Lineto by it isn't. Any help appreciated.

London based FontSmith has released the new sans serif typeface Emeric. It is a strange animal, part humanist sans serif, but with very geometric shapes, and yet not a grotesk.
I have mixed feelings about this typeface.
For one I applaud the fresh approach and the absolutely distinctive and original character. Fontsmith has definitely created something new with its own, unique expression. On the other hand I feel that character has been taken too far in some ways, particularly with the lowercase letter a, which looks a bit like an accident, or the lowercase g, with its squashed lower bow ending, creating a blotched joining between the upper curve of the lower belly.
Can anybody eyeball this font and figure what it is? I've tried all the font id tools (identifont, whatis, myfont) that I know about it. Stumped!
thanks for the help--surprisingly urgent.
Trying to find this font or a close relative. I am aware that this might have been altered or created completely from scratch, but I would love to find the “standard” Chamfered (Angled instead of Rounded) font that I have seen quite a bit lately.
Can anyone tell me what this font is please..?
Hi there, good people!
I'm a graphic design student curently working on a type poster about the differences and similarities of Akzidenz Grotesque and Helvetica (I know, not the most original choice). I've browsed through all of my type books and what feels like the whole Internet, and I found a few good article of Helvetica vs. Univers, but the info on Akzindenz is rather shallow and nothing I didn't know from before (Directly influenced, horizontally cut strokes and taller x-height).
I guess what I'm asking is if someone has some interesting information or can point me in the direction of articles that can help make my poster at least a little bit more interesting that the 1000s other out there.
Thanks in advance,
I'm looking to identify the font used in the "jennifer orkin lewis" part. To me, it looks similar to Quattrocento Sans, but some of the widths aren't quite the same. Can somebody help to shed some light on this please?
I wonder how Roboto should be classified. Is it a grotesk, a geometric sans serif, a humanist sans serif? In any case it is a lineal sans serif, but I am wondering about the contextual category.
If you ask me, it’s a hybrid, with classicist grotesk (lowercase a and as, and uppercase S, C, G) with elements of a humanist sans serif (lowercase e, g, etc.). What do you think?
Does anybody know what typeface this is?
I have made updates to the font family Hikari and started a discussion about the ampersand solution I came up with. Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts:
