Hi everyone!

Does anyone know of a single typeface that has sans serif, serif, stencil, and inline (or outlined) styles? Again, I'm looking for a single typeface that has all of these styles included—I know, quite a tall order, but I'm curious if one exists. Audree is the only one I know that comes close. It has a so-called normal style, but not a pure sans serif.


just came out with an idea who stand up for Comic Sans that judged as the world ugliest (famous) font with abundant inappropiate using.

What are serifs for?

Hello to all!

As some of you may know, I've been writing type-related articles at So I want to ask you guys (that are way more knowledgeable than I am at the subject) the following two questions:

  1. What are serifs for; what's their function?
  2. Why did sans-serif fonts became more used than serif ones?

I have my own theories about it and I'll post them here in due time.

Thank you in advance for helping me out!

Hi Guys,

Just want to share my latest releases.


A sans serif, fresh and summery, tried to mix different influences (humanistic, script, geometric) into a consistent look


A sort of brush display font, tryed to convey a happy feeling on this one too


Bodoni Sans consists of 20 fonts in 3 contrasts for Standard, Display and Text uses.
Available at MyFonts


can anyone comment on the usability of the "Core Sans" family by S-Core?

The "N" (= neutral) version is on discount at the moment (for example here, and I would like to hear about how it works for large amounts of text like in books.

Has anyone ever mixed the different members of the family, "N" with "G" for example? Are small caps included? I once saw that there’s an extra "SC" font available …

Foundation Sans

My first attempt at designing a typeface.

Still plenty of work to do, but wanted to know what you'd change so far.

It comes with Sans styles and a Display alternative as well.

I appreciate your opinions!

Fortunately I finally had the time to continue my first efforts in the conception of a spurless geometric sans.
Any comments would be appreciated! :)

Hi. I'm working on a webdesign for dj school.

We are going to use FUTURA PL as the main font for headers, titles and menu. The client doesn't want to use a serif as a complement for body text.

Which sans-serif font do you recommend to use for body text that would look good in combination with FUTURA PL?

I'm trying to avoid using Helvetica as the combination.

Here is a draft with FUTURA and Helvetica

Thank you!

Condensed uppercase sans

This is my attempt at a squareish condensed sans. It is uppercase at the moment only and is intended to have an industrial feel to it.
There are a lot of issues to be ironed out, but any feedback /suggestions / insults are more than welcome.

I'm a newbie in a need of some typo advice from experts as I have become overwhelmed by browsing the web ...

I'm a student and currently redesigning a medical magazine run by a non-profit student organization.

I'm looking for a sans serif for headings (it will also appear on posters) and a serif for long texts (2 columns).
Keywords: economical, legible, modern

This beeing my first post:
Hello everybody!

I'm an architecture student and this is the first time I'm really dealing with typography. It's only a very basic draft supposed to show the characteristics of a font I want to create myself, as I can't seem to finde anything comparable that tries this fusion of geometric structure and "contemporary" spurless details.
If you know any existing font with these features, please tell me - there has to be one somewhere.
Anyway, please feel free to tell me, wether you think this is a project I should push further or if it is completely hopeless - architects tend to think they can do everything on their own and end up in a massive mess.

Dear Typophiles,

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.

Pétala Pro gave his first steps almost ten years ago. During this time, the quest for perfection had forced several interruptions. It was necessary recalculate the route, tread other ways, discover new maps, and make easy curves. After all, a new milestone on typeface design was reached.

Pétala Pro combines readability with a gentle but strong personality. The smooth and balanced forms shares space with expressive ink traps. The 18 styles of the family – from Thin to Black – allow the flexibility needed to complex design briefs. When designing the different weights, rather than automated solutions, ​​subtle adjustments were made to value the optical qualities of each style. Such care, makes all the difference under extreme conditions.

So I am designing this T-shirt and I came across this font pairing problem. I want to pair a sans-serif with a sans. That is because the red flipped "Ǝ" is indispensable and refers to EMINƎM. So I basically have these four combinations(please ignore the kerning for now). I was hoping you guys could tell me how good and bad they are, and suggest best pairings too.

Foundation Sans


I've been working on my first typeface for the past 2 and a half weeks.

The idea was to create a type inspired by the Bauhaus letterforms but adapted to modern times.

With styles good for Display ("regular" and "bold") and others good for Text ("book" and "book bold").

I haven't set the kerning yet and there's still plenty of work to do, but I wanted your opinion about what I've got so far.


Illiad Sans is an adventurous type family, brave and charismatic, built for editorial contexts. The proportions are reduced in order to supress the need of small caps, avoiding editing hassles.




I'd love to put a name on that beautiful typeface.
