You often read a book and register the information as being true, especially when it is less or more the same you have read before about the subject. It gets a bit odd when you find out that in different publications things are mixed up and each publication seems to add more and more fuzz around the subject. I recently bought a used book about Paul Renner, published in 1978 by Philipp Luidl for the Typographical Society in Munich, Germany. In that book the well-known typedesigner Günter Gerhard Lange wrote an article about Renner. Lange was at that time the art director of H.
I'm building a collection of fonts typical in aviation posters from the first half of the 1900s.
Can you please provide any resources where I can find these? Any specific IDs from these examples would be appreciated as well.
Thanks for your assistance.
I'm trying to find used to create this logo. The company only has a jpg and we need to make this a vector file. Please help! I'm thrown off by the C and the R here.
I'm back with another geometric sans ID. I love the genre but this is for work also.
Somehow it resembles something by Herb Lubalin.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
Myriad is our corporate typeface. I would like to replace it with something more contemporary and friendly.
Alright Sans is the current contender. Its grotesque nature, clean junctions and tall x-height are appealing. I find the open aperture and shallow bowl of the lowercase ‘a’ especially pleasing. Unlike Myriad, Alright Sans has eight weights and small caps.
I'm currently working on some type design for a flag for my thesis show. Both the sans and serif are bespoke. The high contrast serif was very loosely based on Times New Roman and infused with the Didone theme. While comments on any of the characters would be greatly appreciated, I am struggling with the numeral nine. Can it deviate from the vertical axis, reflecting Times? Or, should it conform to the vertical axis? (Both nines are preliminary as well as the metrics.)
Thanks so much!
Hi, can anyone tell me what font this is?
I'm not sure if it is really a typeface or a custom made logotype.
But I have found this image used in another project and it look really similar..
An older font of mine called Signer and some pictures during its design process.
I'm working on a magazine supplement and I was asked to set the body copy in a "modern, classy sans-serif font." Yeah, I know, modern and classy...
I've set it in Gotham for the moment, but I was wondering if anyone has an idea for a typeface that will work better or any tips for making Gotham and sans-serif in general more readable as body copy.
Thanks in advance!
I am struggling to find a good pair for Ratio type that I use for body (I use typekit so I'm constrained here). I would like something in headings to complement Ratio.
Adelle seems to be fine for headings. Rooney Web seems to play nicely too. I have also tried Jubilat in heavier weights (even italics) and seems to be... ok.
What do you think about these combinations? Any suggestions?
I stumbled over a http://link to some specimens of this typeface called Apollo. I like the quirks that sets it apart from similar faces, the C in particular, with the top terminal cut horizontally and the bottom terminal cut at an angle. Has this typeface ever been digitized or revived under another name? I hadn’t heard of it before.
I’m currently working on branding for an Asian city and I imagine the wordmark to have a modern, Western-friendly appeal, but with a subtle Asian warmth and sharpness to it.
ITC Symbol Std has caught my attention so far, but I’m really not comfortable with the varying thickness of the stems and the loops. Also, the thicker weights look nice but when it comes down to the lighter weights, the typeface looks odd.
I have also found Penumbra to be appealing although I wish it had more subtle serifs and available lowercase letters for the wordmark I’m designing.
Looking for font suggestions/general insight.
I'm currently working on the website & art direction of a soon-to-be-launched women's online fashion shop. The feel of it is supposed to be "up scale" and kind of exclusive (not cute or kitschy at all). I have been trying out logo sketches and other things with Lineto's "Brown" typeface and LOVING the way it looks and how it communicates the brand.
This is my first sans serif font. I actually send it for the insentive program of TypeTogether but my project wasn't choosed :(
After that, I think some feedback can help me to catch the problems i didn't see before.
Thany you all! :D

I wouldn't mind a bit of critique on this, my first (more or less) digital typeface. It was intended as Schelter-Giesicke Grotesk meeting Helvetica with a dash of Bauhaus (Herbert Bayers "Universal", really), but so far it looks more like random Grotesk meeting Futura, but I like it anyway.
Hi! I'm looking for a version of Bau which is similar but a little more geometric. It's hard to describe but I'm looking for something more sophisticated and modern. Any suggestions would be really amazing. Or any pointers on good foundries to check out even.
I'm looking for a sans-serif font with rounded conners with humanist style and not too cute, no Helvetica rounded and other well rounded fonts.
Any suggestions please. Thank you.
Could someone please advise on the identification of the following font:
(as found on the sleeve for John Fahey's "Blind Joe Death" LP)
Any advice would e most welcome,
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):
Thanks in advance for your attention. And have a nice summer ...
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!
