sans serif

Scala Sans

Forums: 

Hello! I'd like to know your opinion, please!

Is Scala Sans a good typeface for running text (body text)? (even thought its typographic colour seems a little "dark" and similar to Gill Sans, in my humble opinion)

I really mean the sans version, not the serif one! (not Scala)

And if it is good for running text, which typeface could be a good companion for it? (another sans, maybe for display headlines on a magazine?)

I know there is a controversy mixing a sans serif with other sans serif, but I've seen it in use and it could work, sometimes, I guess?

What do you people think? (maybe Scala Sans with TheSans or Scala Sans with DIN?)

Thanks for your feedback!

Can someone help me find these fonts?

Hey,

I'm in the middle of a town branding project for the city of Elk Horn in Iowa. The city has the largest percentage population of Danish residents in America. It also boasts the only Danish windmill to ever leave Denmark.

Our group has only just started the ideation and conceptualizing a series of symbols and color schemes to represent the town.

We are searching for possible typeface solutions to use throughout the signage for the town.

In our research we came up with these two typefaces being used as signage in Europe. I think the team overall appreciates the large x-height and overall verticality.

If anyone can identify these typefaces or point me in the direction of any alternatives that would be great.

Typolar builds on the Nordic tradition of sturdy functionalism. For us it means fresh ideas and practical results. Working closely with publishing industries has made our typefaces naturally suitable for editorial work. However, many have found them highly useful in branding and identities as well. And that’s how we like it.

Wanted: personal online guidance into finishing type design

Forums: 

I know that most of you typophiles are experts and comments from you all are more then welcome, but I'm at a bit of a loss at the moment. So, I'm hoping there's someone among you who's willing to spend some time for the next four weeks (there's a selfproclaimed deadline) close guiding me.
In short: I'm looking for personal contact by e-mail or forum with someone who is willing and able to guide me through (what I hope to be) the final stages of designing, kerning and hinting my type design Aubaine.

Any takers?

new font I am working on....

Forums: 

Hello everyone,
I've been working on a font for a while and I want to take it into a development program to become functional.
However, I want the shapes to be as refined as possible before offering it to the world.

Please be critical, I am taking all comments into consideration.

If you'd like a closer view of a letter or letters please ask and I can attach additional files for critiquing.

Thank you
