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!

my first font needs a harsh critique

Forums: 

New to design!
I have very little experience and only just started to act on my interest in typography.
This was mostly a dabbler's interest, until recently.
I submitted my first font, called Whale, to MyFonts. They promptly rejected it and basically said it was totally unprofessional. It's meant mainly for display, so I don't know why I bothered submitting to them in the first place, but I now have a stronger desire to make this font as good as it can be. Maybe even simplify it for use beyond just displays.
My feelings will not be hurt. I would greatly appreciate a serious critique of my design so that I can make the next version of Whale far better.
Thanks for your time.

Hi,

I've been working on my first typeface for the past 2 and a half weeks.

The idea was to create a type inspired by the Bauhaus letterforms but adapted to modern times.

With styles good for Display ("regular" and "bold") and others good for Text ("book" and "book bold").

I haven't set the kerning yet and there's still plenty of work to do, but I wanted your opinion about what I've got so far.

THANKS!

An alternative to CoopBlack with lower case

Hi all,

I'm designing a UI for a kids video game and I had chosen House Industries CoopBlack display face to do some of the titling.

We've been doing some testing with an early years education centre, and they have raised the issue that kids in the game's age group (2-4) have not yet been taught to read capital letters. Unfortunately CoopBlack is caps only!

There is a lower case version of the face which was created by Christian Schwarz for Toys R Us, but it's not publicly available: http://www.orangeitalic.com/coop.shtml

Can anyone recommend a similar fun and chunky display face with a lower case?

All suggestions greatly appreciated!

2nd attempt : Desperation Font UPPERCASE

Hi Typophile users

After the initial critique last month on 'Typophile' I went away and studied every aspect of this font to see why it didn't seem to work.

I realised that the weight of vertical and horizontal strokes weren't visually in harmony. This was due to the height of the vertical strokes. I rectified this by reducing the thickness of the horizontal strokes by a third.

strokes.pdf - As you can see the top and bottom stroke of the body of the 'Q' are slightly thinner.

Harlequin romance novel cover typeface

I've been wracking my brain and searching my type books trying to identify the typeface regularly used on the cover of vintage Harlequin romance novels, but so far I've had no luck.

The good news is I have an extensive sample character set:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/17582217/FileChute/harlequin_sample.png

It's not Tiffany, though some of the letters are clearly close.

Does anyone have any guesses? This is driving me crazy!

Thank you in advance for any help!

Dark Angel: A New Release from Alphabet Soup Type Founders

Forums: 


Alphabet Soup Type Founders and Michael Doret are proud to announce the Release of Dark Angel, a “blackletter/hybrid” font. This font had its genesis in a logo sketch for the Anaheim Angels baseball team—thus its name.
Type purists may be appalled by the lack of adherence to traditional forms, but the font should be seen as only “in the spirit of” blackletter, and attempting something that hasn’t been seen or done before—something that feels traditional, yet at the same time fresh and perhaps unexpected.

New free font SONAR SCRIPT

Forums: 

I've just released a new free font called SONAR SCRIPT available for free download at the Floodfonts website. If you want to see more in-use examples you are invited to visit the Behance project: http://bit.ly/103LIko

SONAR SCRIPT is a modular, experimental typeface that plays with the idea to fold a line of text from a continuous strip of paper. In spite of its technical and contemporary appearance, the overall impression of the typeface is unusual and very characteristic! SONAR SCRIPT works really well to create grid-based, geometric layouts with large letters or to design logotypes.
