New Release - Leibix

Forums: 

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.

Greater Albion Launches Flapper

Forums: 

Greater Albion has just launched Flapper, a family of four faces on Fontspring and Myfonts.com.

Flapper is family which embodies a great deal of fun and more than a little spirit of the roaring 20s. If ever a set of typefaces could dance a high kicking Charleston, these are they. Flapper is offered in regular, condensed, oblique and outline forms, and they all bring a great deal of fun and life wherever they are used. The Flapper family (yes, think of one of those dancing 20s girls with a long string of pearls...) is ideal for casual heading, bold captions, poster work and anywhere else a sense of fun is required.

Cartoon Fonts for casual iPhone game

Forums: 

Hello. I am trying to find some appropriate fonts for a casual iphone game to be used in the HUD (score and other interface elements) and the the main menu. It should have a cartoony look.

Books and articles about typography usually don't mention nothing about cartoon typography. What is considered good taste in this kind of style?

It is difficult to identify what current games are using because the fonts usually have a type treatment. For example, what is the font used in these examples?
