Bitmap Rasterization

Forums: 

Hi there,

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!

Greetings,
I've been developing this typeface for the past month, and I've got to a point where I'm feeling kind of blocked, so I thought it would be a good idea to come here for some help. I'm happy with the lowercase, although I'm sure you'll find lots of problems with it (problems which I'd be more than happy correcting, by the way), the main issue I'm having is with the uppercase; due to its geometric construction some letters (E,F,I,T,L,H mainly) aren't quite fitting with the curviness of the other ones.
I've made a really quick pdf with the first sentences that came to mind (feel free to ask for more material if you need it for a better judgement!), and I'd be really glad to hear the criticism of better trained eyes (and hands).

Advice for designing bolder weights?

Hello all!

I'm a graphic designer, and have decided after reading so much on the subject to finally roll up my sleeves and start dabbling with type design myself. I've chosen a simple, upper-case, sans serif display face meant for poster work to start with in order to get myself acclimatized with the process. The results so far have been plenty satisfactory, and I've had a blast fleshing out my type with punctuation, numerals, and accents.

Hey guys! Just thought I'd share a font I designed after I finally got it up on MyFonts. I think I posted it on here a while ago when I was still working on it, but I've since redesigned it completely and added a lot more glyphs.

All-caps display font with distinctive A, seen in various business logos

I've seen this font a lot and it has a distinctive look, but I've been unable to find any information on it. It seems like the kind of font you'd see in a logo for businesses related to construction/hardware/trucking; I've seen it used in such a manner, but I can't recall any specifics. It has a very distinctive A; so distinctive that I'd bet an expert would be able to identify the typeface from the A alone.
