In order to address those instances where the more contemporary letterforms are preferred, designer Steven Skaggs has expanded the Rieven family by creating a Roman version that can be used hand-in-hand with its predecessor, Rieven Uncial.
Yet another typeface with simplicity as it's core element. Concord is derived from a successful type family 'Accord Alternate' by giving geometric touch to it. Hence Concord is a geometric sans serif. It has large counters which enhance readability. It is available in seven different weights for emphasis.
After more than a year of hard work my new sans serif typeface Marat Sans is completed. It is a clean and lively sans serif typeface. The entire family contains of 27 styles & weights and includes many OpenType features: various numerals, alternate glyphs, fractions, superiors and inferiors, language features, arrows, case sensitive forms and many more. Marat Sans is the perfect companion for Marat, a soft and elegant serif typeface.
I'm offering a temporary discount on the font family to celebrate this release! Purchase the entire Marat Sans family on MyFonts for incredible $149 (instead of $799).
can anybody help me identifying the Serif here?

The Indian Type Foundry is pleased to announce Tulika, a new text typeface family inspired by traditional Bengali calligraphy. It features distinctive, sinuous shapes and a high contrast between thick and thin strokes. Bengali is one of the most complex Indic scripts, requiring the design of over 700 glyphs for each of Tulika’s 5 styles. Jyotish Sonowal, in-house designer at ITF and native speaker of Assamese, did extensive research while defining the character set and included support for the Assamese, Bengali, Bishnupriya Manipuri, Garo, Kokborok, Meitei, and Mundari languages.

Seven faces are offered combining upper and lower case forms with incised and embossed decoration as well as an italic form.

Feedback is welcome,
I am looking for the name of the font that is used in the text of this TV test graphic which aired during the tv station's off hours.
Been wrecking my brains, and those of some typographers I know and admire,
but none seems to know. Now we all wanna know the name.
Does anyone recognize this beauty?
Any clue to identify this font?
Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.
Tradition meets tomorrow in Mexborough-Mexborough has just been released by Greater Albion and is being offered at 30% introductory discount on Myfonts.com. Here's a specimen sheet showing the six members of the Mexborough family.
I am happy to announce that after a long period of development, my type family Acorde is available for purchase at http://www.willerstorfer.com
About the typeface:
Acorde is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. It was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. The typeface’s name is derived from ‘a’ ‘cor’porate ‘de’sign typeface, however Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design purposes as well.
Looking to match (or come VERY close) this font. Lettering is in vinyl on a boat, done about 3 years ago and unfortunately this is the only image I have. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!
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:
Hello, I was hoping I could get some comments and criticism on this item. It's a postcard being sent out as an invitation to my portfolio show, and I am hoping to develop 2 or 3 full size posters further developing the idea of creativity as a currency. Any and all comments welcome!
Does anyone know how to create highlighted text in photoshop? At the moment I am having to do this manually by creating separate boxes per line of type. This is very slow and infuriating if your working with large volumes of text.
see this site for an example of what i mean
Its relatively easy in indesign, just a case of setting an underline with an offset.
Does anybody know about are there any test about legibility of rake columns of text? (like in example, I mean the smallest text). Does it strongly affects legibility in longer texts?
Thanks for any answer.
