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.
When merely "extended" just would not do, here is Paragraph Stretch™: a super extended or elongated geometric display typeface. It is a modular unicase typeface: the capitals and lower case fit the same height and width, so they are interchangeable: fancy a round "W" in all caps? Use the lower case. Want a straight "x" in lower case? Use the cap. And so on. Designed for use at larger sizes for logotypes, short titles or headings. It supports Western plus Nordic, Eastern European and Turkish languages.
Available from MyFonts.
Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.
Hi all, designing a logo from a drawing I made,
I need to make the type more legible for the client,
any advice is welcome! The company name is liquid violet.

The below was sent to the client as explanation:
'The logo here is typographic. A bespoke

Liquid seems to be more legible than violet right now?
I'd like to share and get feedback on a set of capitals I have designed for a client work, maybe it will see the light of day as a font. I'm calling it Exotique, and it's a Modern Display Serif. It is made to be seen at big display sizes.
Cheers and thanks!
Need help to ID the font at the bottom of the logo (sort of a tag line). If the main name is a font, I'd love to know that, too (I don't think it is but I could be wrong).
Currently in use as a logo for a local Burger Bar.
Thanks in advance!
BTW, received a server error on the first attempt. If this double posts - my bad, sorry!
Hi can anyone help me identify this title font from the Horniman Museums (South East London) display cases?
Leibix, inspired by a jolly trademark of the past, is a fun family of five typefaces which transcends different eras of the past. It has elements of the 1920s in its design, but is equally at home with projects having a 1970s theme of an up to the minute modern one. Leibix is intended for eye catching cartoon captions, in posters of anywhere else a casual impact is required.
Greater Albion is offering Leibix at an introductory 40% discount on Myfonts.
Albia Nova is a bit of a new departure for Greater Albion-an unashamedly futuristic typeface. It was originally developed for a friend of ours-a set designed who needed some lettering on props for a science fiction play-the brief was to evolve conventional letter forms and speculate as to what they may look like in the future. As released Albia Nova is a more refined version of this idea, placing a bit more emphasis on readability (today) over evolution of the letterforms. The result is good for giving design projects a futuristic feel, but also has something of the 1970s and 1980s about it.
AlbiaNova has released on Myfonts at a 40% introductory discount.
Anyone know the name of the font in blue? I can't find it to save my life...
You may recognize this as being the First Edition of Moby Dick printed in New York 1851. I am hoping to source typefaces that are from the period that have a very close DNA.
Monotype Modern seems like a logical relative but I cannot find anything condensed/compressed enough.
Your help on this is greatly appreciated.
P.S. Please omit the conjunction "OR," from your type identification.
P.P.S. My apologies if I am not using the word "Transitional" properly.
I could use some help identifying this handwriting font for a logo I need to rebuild...
Thanks in advance!
Hi, I'm looking for this display font that appears on the "Black Sabbath, Vol. 4" album. Do you know the name of it?
I am in the early stages of developing a chromatic face that, by design, employs a lot of slight diagonals (1 to 5 degrees off the horizontal or vertical). The glyphs are made to look as if they were formed by folding strips of paper (I know, I know it's been done before). In addition to the pair of companion chromatic fonts within the family (each representing a different side of the strip of paper), I want to make a monotone version that somehow achieves the 2-sided effect without the use of multiple colors.
The solution I've arrived at to simulate that 2-sided effect is to, in the areas representing the back of the strip of paper, block or mask out strokes that run parallel with the strip. The problem I've encountered in testing the viability of this solution is that the edges of the strokes (set at the aforementioned slight diagonal angles), as well as the edges of some of the solid sections, appear quite "jaggy" when I test the PS OpenType font in Illustrator or InDesign.
Anyone have an ID for this? It looks like an über display version of Didot but I haven't been able to find a match.
On a side note, can anyone direct me to a list of other good hairline display type like this?
Clip is a display typeface inspired by the shape of a paperclip, but it’s not designed with the usual minimalistic modular approach. Instead, Clip mimics the construction, proportions and contrast of classic bold text typefaces and has one unique characteristic: each of its characters is drawn with only one single line.
Clip family consists of 3 fonts, Hair, Light and Regular, each with 745 glyphs (supporting more than 70 latin based languages), 4 stylistic sets and advanced OpenType features. When Stylistic set 1 is activated, the overlapping loops contract, giving the text a whole new character. Moreover, every uppercase character is also available in an ornamental swash variant, which means most of the capitals have four different versions.

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released tow new Typefaces on Fontspring and Myfonts:
Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It's an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required.
This rather interesting 'g' appears in headings in Hvem/Hvad/Hvor anno 1952.
Greater Albion's next two releases are now available on Myfonts.com and Fontspring.
No name for this bugger yet. It's my first attempt at creating a full alphabet plus punctuation for an actual font release! Inspiration came from a custom logotype I created that was not commissioned, it's a great excuse to dive into FontLab and see what it's all about. This will be an all caps display font, released at some point this year. Here is a screenshot of the regular and outline versions. I've attached a PDF for closer inspection.
This brand new font family was just released this month from Portuguese designer Dino dos Santos, and it's a real beauty.
I'm thinking about buying the display, text, and sans. What are your thoughts? A new classic or nothing special?
