As Types Grow Older – Re-Release of Grimoire and Sadness

Forums: 

My very first typefaces Sadness and Grimoire have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry I had to ask myself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of my 20 year old fonts?

pairing with Dante (display face for drop cap)

Forums: 

Any suggestions on a good display face to pair with Dante? (It's for a drop cap--Dante is too heavy.) Also, any suggestions about a good sans-serif pairing with Dante? (I recognize that there is a school of thought in which pairings should be similar, and another in which pairings should be dissimilar. Either kind of suggestion is welcome.)

New: HapticScript family by Henning Skibbe

Forums: 

The HapticScript family is a connected brush script with a warm, personal and soft character. The typeface family has five styles from Light through Black. It was designed as a companion and extension to the Haptic sans-serif family.

HapticScript has up to 14 variations for each glyph. The almost 2,000 characters per font including 40+ ligatures enable designers to give each word an individual look. Many swash characters for initials and word endings make words looks as if they were hand lettered.

Five Styles: Light, Regular, Semibold, Bold and Black

OpenType features: Ligatures, Contextual Alternates, Stylistic Sets, Old Style figures, Tabular figures

Dynamic sans-serif display. Who knows?

Forums: 

Hi everybody,

I am looking for the name of the font below. It’s for a research on dynamic sans-serif fonts, sth like Brezel Grotesk, Founders Grotesk Condensed, etc.

Even if you can’t knock off this one, I am glad for any input for my ongoing research. So if you have other references like the ones already mentioned above, please, don’t hesitate!

Btw: grafik.net is using the font I am looking for in their newsletter!

Many thanks to all of you!

Best, Tobias.

Threeadvanced Retina Display

Definitely a typeface with a long story for me. After several adoptions for sub pixel rendering I newly had to make some redesigns for a retina display version without sub pixel rendering (lately problematic in iOS8).
After the time and many corrections with what Frederic Goudy once called the fresh eye effect it became slightly more classic gothic more in the direction of a Chanel like typeface. This was caused by making design automatically bolder and lighter a few times doing the needed corrections by hand.
As since I had started over the time many letters have undergone improvements that I wouldn’t want to get lost during the re-process.

Times New Roman License Issue?

I am working on a book proposal that involves the use of a Completely modified version of Times New Roman to be more Appropriate for Display or at Larger Sizes. This is a commercial project with the potential for Wide Distribution so I want to as clear about the legality as possible. Otherwise, I (with a bit of shame) would not really worry about it, but agin this is not that...

I Heavily modified the font, not just computationally through interpolation, but also in more nuanced and pre-meditated ways that literally alter the letter forms at a fundemental level i.e. serifs, bowls, shoulders, etc.

I have attached sample of the original I used and then the altered version(at 3/4 complete).

Type foundry logo

So, I've been designing typefaces for about 4 years now but soon I'm finally going to put some of my designs up for sale. I don't have the time to set up a proper foundry right now and may not wish to do so, but if I am to sell through MyFonts I would like to brand myself. Considering my last name is Silvertant I've decided on the name Silvertype. I would just like to know what you think of the logotype I designed for it.

handling webfonts in various browsers and devices

Hi guys (and girls)

Just found the site at an apt time in my life, so hoping to learn something and share ideas. Also creating my first font after 15 years as a professional digital artist (shameful, yes) but that's another topic.

I searched the forum but didn't see anything about this in the results. Wasn't sure if it should go in Design section as it's more general to all font use in browsers, especially now with CSS3 and @font-face. Feel free to move it if you like.

Wallington Typeface

Hey guys! allow me to introduce my first release font.

Inspired by Old English cultures and their descendants between the mid-5th century and the mid-12th Century. Made up of two styles, Wallington Regular that consists of 491 glyphs and Wallington Small Caps with 365 glyphs. All glyphs are divided into several OpenType features such as Ligature, Contextual Alternates, Old Style Numeric and some astonishing special characters that allows you to mix and match pairs of letters to fit your design.

Serif Typeface with Serif cut/s ()

Hi guys,

I am looking for a serif typeface along the lines of Marlene (http://www.typonine.com/fonts/font-library/marlene/), that has a large family which includes stencil cuts. I am working on an online magazine layout and would like to implement the stencil version as a hover effect for links.

The foundry selling it should therefore be able to host the type (have a web version).

Thank you!

Troubles with html entities referred to specific glyphs (HTML, FontLab)

Forums: 

Hello everyone,
I try to explain you the problem.

I created a typography that has both common (e.g. between "f" and "i") and custom (e.g. between "p" and "p") ligatures and used FontLab to export the font in ttf.
Now I want an HTML page to display the font and I write & #xFB01 for common ligature between "f" and "i".
But where should I operate to display custom ligature between "p" and "p"?

Thank you in advance for your attention!
Filippo
