I've got an in-progress here that needs your eyes. It's based on a hastily designed logo for a paper sculpture artist that I thought had some potential as a full set of letters. It's a bit of a mash-up of different elements but here's the main points I want: display face, high contrast, flared serifs and abrupt wedge serifs, large x-height, and some other thin, swashy elements and unconventional forms are ok with me since I envision it being used at large sizes. I'd also like to make light and ultra weights too.
I am currently working on a project which involves setting 20 short texts in English and in Arabic.
The texts are printed on big panels (107x72cm) and the Arabic text will sit under the English text.
I am using Baskerville Pro (by Storm) and was wondering which Arabic font would match the typeface?
Your help would be much appreciated.
Sort of Albertus meets a Michael Harvey face (Ellington, Strayhorn). These letters are in bad repair. Is this a font or custom lettering? Smaller image below. See large image at http://loose-oddities.posterous.com/my-favorite-lettering-in-vancouver
After a couple of years out of the type scene, I'm glad to present Rebellia. It has been a joy to make some furious destroyed forms, so I hope you like it and the fonts can be useful for specific graphic contexts :-)
It is already available at MyFonts.
Rebellia is a sans serif display type family designed in a aggressive grunge style. The family is composed by Rebellia Regular and Rebellia Dingbats that contains some drawings that follow the same destroyed visual language. Rebellia is suitable for titles, posters, fashion, t-shirts, covers, action movies, advertising and deconstructive things in general.
Can anyone tell me what typeface this is?
I'd like to introduce a new font. It's Candelivers.
Candelivers is a fun and display typeface, for better use in short sentences, or letterings and logo designs. It comes with a several features, like swashes, alternates and ligatures. It has a little not simmetry between the characters that gives a personality and handmade touch.
Also it comes with a Glow version, to give more soft and fun personality. I hope you enjoy it!
Does anyone know what the font in the attached Gap ad (BE BRIGHT?) Love the lines. Thanks!

Herbie is a uppercase display font with alternates on every character (lowercase), based only on circles and geometric lines. Herbie is inspired by, as the name might indicate, Herb Lubalin's work and the decorative style and kerning of his era.
Trying to identify the serif for LAST DROP
I have a case of 72 pt lead display gothic type and a blank wall in my house, so I tought of printing the beginning of El Quijote in Spanglish over a big sheet of paper. I think it will be somehow humorous and appropriate to print this text in a gothic face.
Here´s the text: "In un placete de La Mancha of which nombre no quiero remembrearme, vivía, not so long ago, uno de esos gentlemen who always tienen una lanza in the rack, una buckler antigua, a skinny caballo y un grayhound para el chase."
Has anyone done something similar before? How? Which ink? Which paper? What about Fabriano?
Thanks in advance.
Does anyone know which typeface is this on the cover of this magazine? (where it reads "Choice") And also the others? Glosa, Acta?
And also on this magazine:
Greater Albion Typefounders have just released two new typefaces on Myfonts.
Eccles is another of our 'Early Victorian' typefaces, a series we started with the Wolverhampton family a little while ago. It might be described as 'extreme-Tuscan' in style but has a delicacy that many other Tuscan faces seem to lack. It's ideal for giving design projects a clear period feel, particularly in design and advertising work. We also see it haveing considerable application in preparing invitations to a certain type of happy event. At the other extreme, some of our younger associates have described it as 'your latest Steampunk font'. So perhaps we'll just have to settle on it having a split personality...
Greater Albion Typefounders has just released it's latest family on Myfonts and Fontspring. Wolverhampton is a new Neo-Victorian face from Greater Albion Typefounders. It's something of an example of starting with a small idea and running with it. This family of three typefaces (Regular, Small Capitals and Capitals) was inspired by a line of lettering seen on a late 19th Century enamel advertisement made by Chromo of Wolverhampton (hence the family name). The family grew, topsy-like, from a recreation of these initial fifteen capital letterforms to the three complete typefaces offered here.
Anyone know what this one might be? Or is it a mix of caps?
This is my debut typeface (which is still untitled).
What initially meant to be modular serif inspired by arab calligraphy, turned out into somewhat modernist base with elements used by older serif typeface styles.
Some glyphs still need work - namely N, Q, X, f, x, 4, 8.
Also I haven't started to work on kerning yet.
And FL technical features are like a plane cockpit to me.
Doncaster is a bold display face which emphasises legibility and clarity, but which combines those qualities with a distinctive flair. The designs have a timeless quality, making them equally at home today or even in Victorian inspired design work. All of the faces are ideal for poster work, signage or for really eye-catching but not ostentatious headings and titles. Seven faces are offered combining upper and lower case forms with incised and embossed decoration as well as an italic form.
Here is a specimen sheet showing all seven faces:
Can anyone identify this font from a Brazilian sports mag? That X looks familiar.
