"Press Your Luck" font design

Forums: 

Hello. I've been a long time lurker, so I've finally decided to join in and get advice. I've been into fonts ever since I was a kid, especially those from logos. I design my own by shaping them on PowerPoint and transferring the glyphs to High-Logic's Font Creator Program.

Thus far I've done some modernized fonts based on the classic "Press Your Luck" logo; one is regular and the other is extended, but I have some fine-tuning to do (the corners of the letters are rounded or beveled, which I don't want). Ray Larabie is known for recreating fonts from logos, and though this is a parody in the same vein, do I need to seek legal permission before publishing the font?

Collider logo - condensed Sans Serif

Hey guys,

Any one recognise this condensed sans serif?

CA Normal Medium is very close but doesn't have the slants on the top of the "L" and "I". That could of course just be a customisation, but the "O" is also different (hard sides on CA normal). Futhermore, the "C" and "R" seem to have slightly different proportions.

Cheers,

Dylan

ARRAY typeface

Hey,

I've been working this font for a while now, and now that I've finally sketched out all the letters, I'd really appreciate some critique on the overall design of the letters before I move on to spacing/kerning/doing more weights.

In the design, I've tried to mimic several features of monospaced typefaces, keeping the typeface condensed, however allowing wider charecters like m, M, w and W.

I guess its not a good thing that I created the Bold weight first, but I guess a way to make it into a whole familiy would be to make a Light weight, and then use interpolation to create a Regular weight.

I hope you'll like it, but please do not hesitate to point out the weak parts of it.

Thanks in advance,

Anders

Hi everyone,

I would love a critique of the typeface I'm developing for my honours project this year. The two fonts below are the display cuts in an extra-bold and light weight. It's going to be used as part of an identity system for an artist-run initiative in Melbourne. Previously they were using Reader for headlines and Parry Grotesque for body copy. The naivety and clunkiness of early British grotesques was the formal starting point.

This is my first proper foray in to type design and I've yet to go through kerning pairs so forgive any awkward combinations. Love to hear your impressions, criticism, suggestions.

New Alvar Aalto inspired font for critique

Forums: 

Hi,

This is my new typeface project, inspired by attached image of Alvar Aalto's design for a door handle ("VEDÄ" = pull, "TYÖNNÄ" = push in Finnish). I fell in love with the unorthodox proportions of Aalto's lettering (which was of course made to fill certain width) and I have tried to keep that mood in my letterforms. I'm planning to include some alternative glyphs of different widths so user can more easily create words that have right amount of narrow and wide letters.

Though Aalto's Ä is superb, I couldn't figure out any decent way to make it work, so I just made up my version.

Any comments / suggestions are welcome!

Acorde - 'A' 'cor'porate 'de'sign typeface

Forums: 

I am happy to announce that after a long period of development, my type family Acorde is available for purchase at http://www.willerstorfer.com

About the typeface:
Acorde is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. It was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. The typeface’s name is derived from ‘a’ ‘cor’porate ‘de’sign typeface, however Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design purposes as well.

"Organic" humanist sans serif typeface

Forums: 

Hi again,

I'm on a (rather quick) quest for a quirky/organic humanist sans serif in a heavy weight. The word I'm setting is "Coffey," so bonus points for a nice ff ligature.

On my list:
Corbel

Mayberry
Bree
Hypatia Sans (if I can figure out where to buy it)
Lapidaria Sans

looking for a body font for a poster brochure- clean, modern, sans serif but with a 'cool' edge

Forums: 

I am creating a poster brochure aimed at teenagers but still appealing to adults - parents and teachers. I want a body font stylish, modern, with an edge. I've used Univers for one of the headings and the company's logo is in prosper-book.
I want something nice and readible and breezy. I was looking at Optima but it's a bit too old fashioned and I was looking at using univers for the body but I'm sure if its as readible and I'm not sure which weight to use.

Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!

(x) Rounded Sans Serif / Godard’s Breathless - modified Aurora Bold Condensed {Jörg G}

Can anyone name this? I think the same font was used on Godard's DVD packaging for Breathless. A close guess is Highbus-Bold, but that isn't it.

Help identifying this retro display font

I have been reading this book called "Manual of graphic techniques 3" (old, but quite an interesting read) and one of the samples used there caught my eye.

I thought it's just a hand-drawn sample of type treatment, not a typeface itself, as I couldn't find any information about it in the credits. I like it so much, I was thinking of making the rest of the alphabet.

I guess I'm too naive and inexperienced, just recently stumbled into some artwork with the same looking type in it.

I assume there is a typeface, so I would like you to help me identifying it. I've attached a photograph of it (the "Mercury" one):

Paper Romantic - a narrow display face

Forums: 

This is the first iteration of Paper Romantic, based on a few doodles I found in the margins of an old college notebook. This is the first time I've tackled digitizing any of my little typeface experiments, so any and all feedback is greatly appreciated!

I know the /N/ feels very out of place, but I'm not sure how to resolve that. Also, I can't tell if the lowercase is working or not. Some of the letters seem to fit, while others just look wrong.

Thanks so much!
