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.
Before I trace these characters in illustrator, does anybody recognise any of these fonts? I'm assuming they're all from the 60s, possibly 70s.
Any help would be much appreciated.
this reminds of Stone sans but the R does not match.
I'm redesigning a old project, a type family sketched in 2008. I would love to read your feedback, as I'm hoping on some really good insights as I share the redesign process here.
So, here's the sketch:
First two cents, anyone?
Thank you in advance. Cheers!
I’m a typographic layman, nevertheless interested in typography. My favorite serif typefaces are up to now Albertina and FF Scala.
I’m looking for a sans serif typeface that works well as a headline-font with Albertina and Scala. The aim is to set scientific texts. But the typeface ought to work well for body text, too.
My search led me to FF Kievit—a wonderful clear and neutral typeface. Now I’m looking for a typeface that is as clear and neutral as Kievit is, but that has other proportions (when this is the right word for it)—something like DTL Documenta Sans (has unfortunately only one weight), Scala Sans (in my opinion not as clear and neutral as Kievit, but with a wonderful italic like Auto 1 italic (by Underware), or DTL Caspari.
Does anyone recognize the sans used throughout the french magazine "Le magazine double"?
Can somebody please identify this font for me?
Michel's Patisserie in Australia has launched some new $10 cakes, and I can't ID the sans used to advertise them.
You can see the font on their website here: http://www.michels.com.au/
and in the attached poster.
Can anyone help?
I love the idiosyncratic compressed sans YCN are using, does anyone know what it is?
I can scan in a paper copy if anyone needs it a little larger, but it's quite distinct so I imagine one of you geniuses will know.
I'm going nuts trying to identify this wide, geometric sans which I've seen on my local Fox channel's news graphics and most recently on the Screen Actors Guild awards on January 23, 2010. I've come across likely candidates (Trade Gothic Extended, Aviano Sans, Doublewide) but none of those have the exact letterforms, especially the sharp point angles of capital M and W. The letterforms have the sharp angle characteristics of Metro sans (Dwiggins) but in an exaggerated extended way. The news channel graphics have shown this in upper and lowercase, while the SAG awards used all caps. HELP!
Hey, I'm trying to identify the typeface used in the movie poster (the tom cruise one) of War of the Worlds. I'm talking about the title, of course.
Thanks in advance to anyone that might help ;)
The best gift I got for Christmas was a book about the design of the Norwegian telephone box (1933). So I got inspired, and drew some glyphs, and all of a sudden I had a whole alphabet. I didn't look at the telephone box lettering while I drew, I wanted to make letters resembling the Art Deco style there still were a lot of traces left of in Norway until the 80s (now, there's only a few phone boxes and some street signs left), without making a derivative of anything.
I've made some deliberately naïve old-school choices, this is not a polished, modern take on a geometric sans serif.
