technical

Connexion

Hi! I'm not sure if this is the right forum for my font, but it seemed the right choice. I developed two variants. In the regular one, glyphs connect to each other only in specific locations. In the C(onnected even more) version, some connections were added, some possible ones were still left out, though (like the /o), because I didn't want to mess with it and wanted to maintain a more natural flow iynwim. (And for another reason, I don't have the right tools to implement OpenType goodies and all). And the excuse for keeping some letters separated that I came up with for myself was that this way it looked more alien, rugged and original.

Grey Sans

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.

RONA typeface

I'm trying to ID this typeface used in RONA's advertising. It has a very technical edge to it. Reminds me of a DIN and some of T-26's and Lineto's work. Also shares properties with Eurostile and such. I figured someone here may be able to pinpoint it.

Can someone help us create a typeface?

We've created a hand drawn script for an ad campaign and our client now wants us to create a typeface for the brand. It's a loose brush script with character variations. It will be drawn out (with an alternate case), cleaned up and traced. General kerning will be considered and it will include a standard punctuation set.

We need someone who can do the technical work and create the typeface for us in the best possible format for use on Mac and PC. Is there anyone out there who can do this or point us in the right direction?

Technical sans font for long text

Hi,
This is font made by Dalton Maag for ThyssenKrupp. It looks great in long texts. Can someone recommend similar font? I thought about obvious choices like Fago or Stroudley. But they do not have this „DINish feel”. Stroudley is almost perfect but its regular weight is a way too thick for my taste. Do you have any suggestions?

(x) Technical / Engineering Font - Helvetica Extended {Jan}

Hello! I've been trying to track down a good font for the technical drawings I work on. I came across a document that has exactly what I'm looking for. See attached. Sorry for the quality. It was taken from a scanned document and the print was quite small. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've tried to find something myself but have had no luck. Thanks!

Font Name Craziness

I'm having weird things happen with a font name.

I've dabbled with Fontographer over the years to create some architectural fonts for my business (I'm an architect, if that's not obvious). I created a font "ErickTheArchitect 9" in Fontographer, and when it was ready to deploy I saved it as MikitenArch, to match my firm's web address.

I've used the font for 2-3 years with no problems. All of a sudden a few months ago the font showed up missing in some software, getting something else substituted. In other places it reverted somehow back to "ErickTheArchitect 9". In FontBook I've only got ErickTheArchitect 9. Other people in my office continue to use MikitenArch just fine. But I seem to be seeing more and more places where my computer won't accept it.

Combinig Purista and something with CE glyphs, greek and math support...

Forums: 

That's a tough one... And i don't feel comfy about it on my own. Please help.

1) Recently we've been working on a identity for a hydrologist. We picked "Purista" as a leading typeface. It was ment mostly for stationery and hydrologic reports – both headlines and body text and we're happy with it's tech look. Unfortunately, we encountered a serious issue with mathematical symbos and greek, wich Purista does not support.
2) As the logo is much in sync with purista, we should stick with that one (a very close inexpensive match with support for what we need would be as perfect as is non-existent)

3) There's no budget for any high-end, multi purpose killer bundles.
