Bengala is a trendy new type system. The family is made up of a script style, an extended all-caps style, and an ornament set that includes the animal illustrations shown here.






Hi Typhophiles!

I see that in some fonts sharp angle between paths is padded. What do you call this thing? What's the purpose of this? How large should it be?

Thanks for any answer.

Hi,

I am looking for this cool dotted font:

The small „i“ looks very specific to me? Has anybody an idea what is? I already tried to contact the person myself but did not get an answer.

Many thanks.

Best,
Dani

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.

Thank you.

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.

Hey everyone.
I'm struggling to find a font I really like that I've seen on a computer repair site.

The site is: http://www.bigbytecomputer.com

The logo at the top says, "Big Byte Computer Services," and that's the font I'm trying to figure out. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello,
Im looking for a nice typeface with rounded edges. Im wondering what is it? It's from Manual Studio.
Thanks in advice.

I'm looking for a font similar to Gravur of Lineto, with a better kerning and balance of width. I'm also open to a monospaced version.

Thanks for your help, Regards!

Need some suggestions for a font that looks like a technical or architectural drawing with sketch lines.

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?

I have set up a wiki dedicated to the technicalities of font production and their related topics. I invite you to join, add and edit content. Please use your real name and include a short description of who you are when signing up. You have to be signed up to edit the content, but the content is readable by everyone. The project is fully non-commercial, but you are of course free to use the information in the wiki to produce commercial fonts. Don't worry about entering complete data, editing is what the wiki system is good at.

Feel free to spread the word about http://fontstandards.org/.

Hope to see you there!

I'm hoping that someone might be able to assist me with a few FontLab 'OpenType" feature questions:

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?

Could someone help ID this? It is a picture of a name stamp out of an old textbook. Sorry for the poor quality. Notice the center vertex of the 'M' above baseline, straight comma, and circular period. Thanks for the help!

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!

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.

Hi everyone,
As I can't seem to find much information I drop the question here:
What are the specifics when designing a typeface for use on (PAL) television?
Does anyone know of a good source of information on this topic? I saw some books on Amazon, but their value is not clear...

TIA

Best,

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.
