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.
this is my first attempt at type creation as an amateur type designer.
I would love to hear from you,
Do not hesitate to criticise!
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.
Hello, colleagues. We, at Intellecta, are proud to announce Invitation Script, a modern and clean revival of the classic work of the Portuguese master penman Manuel de Andrade de Figueiredo, whose work can be seen in “Nova Escola para aprender a ler, escrever, e contar (...)'' (1722)(see footnote). Invitation Script is the third script superfamily published by Intellecta Design, after Penabico and Van den Velde Script.
Invitation Script has original letters designed by Iza W. Creative direction and core programming were provided by Paulo W. Chyrllene K assisted with some work on unusual and archaic styles, resulting in a special font - Invitation Script Archaic (soon available).
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!
I'd love to put a name on that beautiful typeface.
Any ideas on the name of this stencil font?
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.

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:
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!
I am looking for a suitable font that will fit in to this type of illustration.
Thank you in advance.
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.
Inspired by neutral slab serifs with an added twist, Slab Happy is a typographic system consisting of eight layerable fonts with infinite combinations. Slab Happy looks best when set in display sizes, but functions just as well at smaller point sizes.
The complete Slab Happy family consists of: Regular, Bold, Outline, 3D, Stitches, Fill, Shadow, and Crosshatch.
I was developing this blackletter display typeface. Struggling with a complex drawing for the first time.
Need some feedback.
Hello - -this post follows up on a search fro a very similar condensed serif used for Time-Life (http://typophile.com/node/102039)
I am trying to identify the typeface used in a Hernan Bas catalogue from last year, published by Distanz in Germany... any help much appreciated, thank you!
I feel like this should be easy but I couldn't find it :/
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.
Please check out my first font release, Grey Sans!
Grey Sans is a contemporary sans with an angular design. Routed in both modern geometry and historical handwriting, Grey Sans bridges the gaps of neutrality and warmth, precision and humanism, and serious and fun. Grey Sans covers the grey areas of typeface design.
wondering what this font is called?
Thanks in advance!
I’ve experience a quite fuzzy thing: Exporting a font two times from FontLab, no known changes in the output settings.
The 1. font is the red text below, the 2. is the white text.
The only thing that was changed in between the 2. font-exports was the numbers (0 – 9) and the punctuation (,.;!?“”…) not displayed here.
It appears to be that now the Bitmaps are not the same anymore (especially the horizontal stems in a, e, s and h in the attached 300% example).
Anti-aliasing method is set to sharp in Photoshop, but this it seems has nothing to do with the different jittering in the result.
Any help or hint is highly appreciated!
