newspaper design



Hey everyone. Sorry about the subject title...needed something to lure you in :D

Anyways, I posted a similar thread in this forum called Kill this layout! (Are we seeing a pattern here?), wherein I have a selection of layout ideas that I have presented for lambasting by Typophile frequenters, e.g. hrant, Birdseeding, sanderpe.

15 weeks on, I have boiled down the best of those ideas, argued constructively with the powers-that-be for a decent budget for fonts, and tried to learn how to do Illustrator, to come up with this.

some uppercase serif available only

I would like to do a facelift for this logo type and need to know which font was used. New Times Roman (unfortunately) get fairly close, but not quite there, terminal of the upper case J is different, as are the proportions of upper case O and E. I only have this very small JPG available for indetification.

Tips request: no profit newspaper, which fonts?


Good morning everyone.

I'm going to design a 12 pages newspaper – compact, 24*34cm, 9.4"*13" – for a not for profit organization. The association is devoted to the promotion of its territory: from conscious tourism to the preservation and valorisation of their local artistic and environmental heritage.

Being an organization funded by its own members, I have been asked to use only free or cheap typefaces.

I think I need a good sans serif, with a regular and condensed family, and a serif for body text. I'd like to have some personality on the pages, starting from typography, but I understand their budget issues.

Have you got any idea to spare with me? Thank you very much.
