Hello, I am happy to finally announce the release of my new typeface!

Rukou -- a geometric-script typeface influenced by schoolhand

Hi all,

Sorry about the fuzziness of this. Can anyone ID the font in this logo?


I have two ID requests from a beer container. On the top, "Refined Pleasure," a wide (perhaps artificially extended?) connecting script with dual-stroke caps. Below, "PRIMA" set in a geometric sans with pointed bowls on the P and R. The top script I'm sure is a font, but the geometric sans could be custom. (The other typefaces on the box and bottle include Copperplate Gothic, Berthold Boulevard, Arquitectura, and Futura Condensed.) Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

I'd like to identify the metal type used in this print. It's an incomplete set that I'm trying to round out. I'm new to sourcing metal type, so suggestions on that are also appreciated. Thanks very much.

What do you think about DIN + Quadraat? or DIN + Warnock?
Do they work together?

I'm looking for some sans fonts with thick (bold/black), wide, low x-height capital letters. Some ideas I've tried already are Neutra Display, Agenda Black, Nevis... along those lines. I often see these fonts with wide kerning as subtext in logos.

I know this is only one letter, but very similar to Rokkans R:
(If anyone knows that specific R that would be great too)

I will find some more examples. Sorry if this is the wrong thread to post in.

Hey guys,
I feel like I'm starting to get a fairly decent handle on font pairings, but I'm really kinda stuck on working with Letter Gothic. I'm trying to find a sans that will contrast the computer stone age look of Letter Gothic (like Futura vs courier), or give a little bit of the terry jones/ID magazine look. Is it also possible to use a serif against the slabby monospaced LG? Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated. Cheers,

Magazine Headline Sans

Hey guys,

I`m developing a font for an education magazine for my final university project. This is my first time making a font, so I would be very happy if you could give me some feedback. It`s a sans serif for headlines, and still with no name (taking suggestions). The kerning and metrics aren`t done yet. I recommend the PDF for better view.

Thanks a lot!

Can anyone identify the two fonts used in this image? Thanks.

This is font made by Dalton Maag for ThyssenKrupp. It looks great in long texts. Can someone recommend similar font? I thought about obvious choices like Fago or Stroudley. But they do not have this „DINish feel”. Stroudley is almost perfect but its regular weight is a way too thick for my taste. Do you have any suggestions?

Could someone help ID this? It is a picture of a name stamp out of an old textbook. Sorry for the poor quality. Notice the center vertex of the 'M' above baseline, straight comma, and circular period. Thanks for the help!

Hey all. Quick request that I hope you can help with- Can anybody help me identify this Humanist Sans Serif? It's not Gill- check out the lowecase 'a' and the terminals. It's used by 'Disclosure Scotland'. Thanks!

Any ideas if this is something that can be purchased or is it custom.


Thoughts on what this font might be from the Allstate website? Note the telltale "Q". Tried it on WhatTheFont with no luck.

EDIT: please disregard the screenshots in this post and scroll down about seven entries to see updated screenshots. also, there are new attachments (in this post) below, prefixed with "8-6-10." please disregard the "osdc_typeface_1a.pdf" attachment. it is from a week or two ago. please use either the "sketches" or "refined" files for making comments or adjustments to characters. if i should delete the old files and screenshots, let me know. im not sure if people prefer to see the process from the beginning. thank you!


Just started working on something new and wanted to save it here, so it reminds me not to quit or forget about it.

Only lower case letters are done so far and not all (/s/, /k/, /v/, /w/, /x/, /y/, /z/, /j/... are missing) and they are still rough, didn't do fine tunings of those existing letters (e.g. some parts are still not consistent, proportions in some letters are not good, should letters /n/, /u/, /u/, /p/, /q/ have same upper part of left stem as on /p/ or /n/ ...). Pretty a lot of things to define and to think about.

But, I think this looks like a promising beginning and could be interesting to complete it.

Have some trouble figuring out this typeface. The part of the image that says Kodak Timer. The timer is probably circa 1920s—1930s.

My best guess was Akzidenz-Grotesk Extended but the E doesn't match with the short crossbar and the Ks are not quite right. I'm also not sure if the extended version of Akzidenz was around in the 1920s or if that was added later on.

Image attached. Larger image can be found here

Can anyone tell me what this font is? Thanks in advance!



I have been trying to identify this font for the past month or so, but I can't remember where I grabbed the original screen-shot from. All I remember is that it was from a British site (maybe?), and that the designer had other similar typefaces, and logos that he had created using the same fonts.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I'm in the process of creating a masthead for a fictional magazine, and I'm using futura extra bold – All caps.
I'm translating the title in other languages, and I want to try to make a japanese and/or korean version.
The problem is that japanese kanji/katakana/hiragana are really bound to calligraphy: is it possible, in your opinion, to create a "geometric" version of them (example: ん) and maintain legibility and recognizability?

Thank you in advance,

I am in search for sans with lo-fi almost handwritten, linocut etc. qualities. I am currently redesigning The Communist Manifesto for my final book design class.

Appreciate any help.


Normally I don't have a hard time with these but I just, I dunno, have a huge block. Identifont and WhatTheFont aren't ringing any bells. :(

Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.

Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.

Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.

Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
