New relase - Centim

Forums: 

Centim is contemporary sans with sharp top endings of stems that give a bit technical charm to typeface. With a squarish look, it can be used widely in all modern publications or become a part of an corporate identity. In smaller sizes, Centim offers good readability due to its simple and good balanced lines.

Centim is available in Regular and Bold weights, as an ideal high-contrasted combination where all characteristics of the typeface are purely effective.

Centim is the archaic Serbian word for Centimeter, a word that was mostly used in tailoring during XIX and XX century.




Early 20th Century German Hand-Lettering (Sans, not Blackletter)

Forums: 

I come across a couple of title pages for some of Mahler’s Symphonies, which were published by Kahnt in Leipzig in the early 20th Century. They have the following quite attractive hand-lettering and I wanted to see if I could fine some more examples, but am not quite sure the best way to search for them.

Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif Released by Font Bureau

Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif
Cyrus Highsmith designed Salvo Sans & Salvo Serif (originally called Boomer Sans & Boomer Serif) as one series to tie the design of AARP The Magazine to AARP The Bulletin and AARP Segunda Juventud. Together the Salvos illustrate the guiding sentiments of the design director Courtney Murphy, “Hopeful, informative, alive, embracing and delightful. The right words draw people in, but on a subconscious level the typeface does that first.” FB 2007, 2011

Comic Sans. Why be hated?

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.

neo-grotesque - love some feedback and criticism

Forums: 

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.

geometric, monoline, sans

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.

condensed sans

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.

Sans to complement Austin (Shwartzco)

Forums: 

Hi Guys,
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).

Any ideas?
