Here's a tough one (the display face).
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.

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:
Can any of you recommend a similar font to this? Or perhaps even the original it has been set in?
Here it is:
Dear Everybody Who Loves Font,
This is my first - quite serious - attempt to draw a font family.
Basic concept was/is to draw a Thin and Black weights and blend
and carefully review all the weights in between.
Now I like this - and would be glad to have any critique.
P.S.: Numerals look still something ugly for me - I'm working on it.
P.S.2.: Italic is mainly oblique for now - except 'f' and 'f-ligas' - but
a few glyphs are planned to be redrawn.
Did you know this extended font. (it is not engraver gothic)
Need to id this for work...not sure if the little points halfway up the strokes have been added or not (what do you call those? filligrees? spurs?).
What is the font used for Balenciaga's Logo? I really like the sleek aesthetic. Thanks for any help!
I can see Gotham as a sans, but cant clearly tell the serifs and slab serif.
Anyone have an idea?
Hey everyone, well I've got this project and I'd really appreciate your input.
I'm having difficulty finding a suitable font for a men's clothing line. The name is "ALEIXANDRE KORTABERRIA"
I'd really rather avoid any Didot because I think it's too common and feminine. I've included some examples of what I may be looking for below.
I like these sans serifs but the name I'm working with has so many letters that a plain font like that may just look boring and uninspired.
Well I'm open to any suggestions you might have.
Thanks in advance
Any idea about this 'rough condensed sans'?
Thanks in advance.
Hi, anyone know what font this is (in orange)? I can't figure it out and it's driving me crazy... It's condensed and gothic.
Thanks for your help!
TypeTogether is proud to introduce Rue Display, an organic, casually ornamental, narrow-faced sans serif designed by Winnie Tan.
Rue's spirited and exploratory design is the materialization of a feeling about fonts as a family of organisms taking on a life of its own, in work and play. It was conceived as a typeface, used as an image and discovered as an ornament.
It comes in 10 weights of light, regular, medium, semibold and bold, each with italics.

Here is my first approach on type design. It's a friendy sans serif font with slightly rounded corners, large x-height and wide lettershapes. It's name says it all – designed to be used for body copy in magazines in around 10 point size.
Because it is supposed to be used in print, it lacks of proper hinting (autohinting only actually), so tons of hinting errors may occur. Sorry for that. I hope I can improve hinting as soon as I find some advice how to hint a font properly. See (or even better print) the pdf for a better view on Brevier Ten.
Brevier Ten features some OpenType functionalities like ligatures, discretional ligatures, contextual replacements, lining and old style numbers, caps, historical forms and ISO-Latin 1-3 Glyphs.
I came upon this nice typeface and, as usual, WhatTheFont was useless. Anybody know what it is? I really like the a, c and d.
