i think Comic Sans is an ordinary-famous font in the whole world. Why do some people (especially typographer and type design) hate that font?
Its just a font. I think the hater just have bit of envy of that font's popularity beside that's 'un-good' work. I think the worth of a font is reflected by people response instead the type designer. Because the consumer of the font is people, not the type design. People ignore design that ignores people.
Looking for this compressed sans used for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion circa 1993.
House Gothic 23 or Compacta are close, but not quite it.
it's far from finished:
the weight between characters is still a little uneven, and some letters i'm not sure about. i was thinking of scrapping the g and starting on a two-story g (along the lines of johnston, akkurat etc.)
i started by wanting to create a grotesque striped down to its simplest form by removing unnecessary terminals.
Hi all — Any help with this is appreciated. I am trying to ID the typeface used for "Freeman Sporting Club's" wordmark. I believe it may be a modified version of "Decima" - http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/tipografiaramis/decima/ ... almost like certain crossbars have been lowered/raised, and it's corners have overall been rounded a bit.
Here is a link to "FSC's" website for a specimen.
Hi all - I'm getting frustrated trying to match this one accurately. I thought it would be easy for me to to ID it, but I think the "J" is throwing me off—perhaps it's custom. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Hello — Can someone help me identify the near mono, linear sans, used throughout EDUN's site as headers, subheaders and nav? Thanks so much ...

My eyes are bleeding from looking at typefaces all day.
I am developing a brand that is focused on the purity of a product, and the approach is to use a stripped-back typeface as a core word mark.
To support the stripped back sans I was hoping to use Austin as it's emotive qualities will work well to create dynamic packaging and create a visual language for the brand.
I love the depth of the Foundry Grotesk family. I also have a picture in my mind of the word mark being similar to Trade gothic Bold Cond No.20 (all CAPS).
You guys have never disappointed me before and I hope you can help me ID this font on Mogwai's album.
Can anyone please identify this font.
Looks a bit like Dax, but it has a special 'g' character and the e and boldness are different.
Anybody know what font Google is using for their new Chrome Web videos? http://www.youtube.com/user/googlechrome#p/c/5CD3EDF0437B3006
Just found Typophile doing some searches... awesome, looking forward to using this forum.
I first thought this was Helvetica Rounded or AG Book Rounded but looking at the a and the g I'm not so sure. Does anyone know what it is?
hey guys. I saw this this morning and am in love with it. Any ideas what it is?
I think I'm having an off few days, I can't for the life of me figure out what the typeface is on the cover of the new Mogwai album. What's this sans serif?
Just a quirky typography tale and conundrum.
The Eurovision Song Contest is easily the biggest televisual event of the year in Sweden. The national selection for what song will get to go stretches out over six weeks, with over a third of the population seeing each qualification round and almost half the final. It's an enormous production on a mastodon scale, with artists, dancers, choreographers, set designers and TV producers spending months trying out everything to perfection.
Which is why I was so surprised when one of the performances switched typefaces in less than 24 hours.
We have just embarked on a complete overhaul of the magazine style for Waypoint AirMed&Rescue. We are seeking advice on the best way to pair up a sans and a serifed font.
So far we have chosen Zapf Elliptical and Williams Caslon Text as the main contenders for the main article body text. We would like to use a modern sans face for the features to create contrast between the standard articles and the featured articles.
We're not necessarily looking for suggestions on what to use, but are simply looking for advice on the theory behind combining (and creating contrast between) sans and serifed typefaces within magazine body copy.
The condensed orange gradient typeface here is something I am curious about - love the numerals - it is not far away from MVB Solano (http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/mvbfonts/solano-gothic-mvb/) - but not quite...
Your time and knowledge is, as always, much appreciated!
Can someone identify this headline font from wired magazine.
It's celebration time @ ARS Type!
Completed in November 2010, this new version however, is much more than an upgrade. Not only was it extended with two versions of newly designed italics and a generous amount of features & alternate characters — it was completely redrawn, refined and extensively spaced & kerned (with the extensive help from Igino Marini-iKern) to fully excel in all its applications. Quite certainly for text and even more so for headlines, by introducing a unique new Display cut for all weights and styles.
Been trying to identify this typeface for hours now but can't seem to find any with a matching lower case "a". Any idea what typeface it is?
anyone out there who can give some information about this font?
Looks custom to me and reminds me somehow of M/M Paris.
