fonts

New to the Monotype® library, the 36-font Burlingame® typeface family offers designers a square, sans-serif design that is suitable for a wide range of purposes, from branding, advertising and packaging to automotive displays, user interfaces, motion graphics, and mobile and broadcast environments.

Designed by Carl Crossgrove, senior type designer at Monotype, the Burlingame typeface performs with strength and grace at any size. It’s a multifaceted, multipurpose typeface family.

How do you organise your fonts?

By class?

By use?

By client/job?

I'd be interested to know how others do it.

I'm at a point where I need to find a better organising system than just 'sans-serif'.

World boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko is attempting to deal a knockout blow to illiteracy through a unique fundraising initiative – and Monotype is in full support. Klitschko has punched 26 letters to create a font, which is now available for free on Linotype.com. Monotype has optimized the fist-painted font to ensure clarity and quality.

All proceeds from the voluntary monetary contributions will go to the Klitschko Brothers Foundation in partnership with German charity organization BILD’s “A Heart for Children” charity http://www.ein-herz-fuer-kinder.de to combat illiteracy internationally.

1. I'd like to know if all the typefaces of Herb Lubalin are available on digital format?
2. How many typefaces did he fashion with or without Tom Carnase?

Find a rough list of his work : Avant Garde Gothic, Lubalin Graph, Serif Gothic, Ronda, Didi.
Are there anymore typefaces?

3. How do you define the style of Herb Lubalin and what's his artistical leaning?

Thanks in advance.

What is this font?

Hello,

What is this font?

The closest I can find is Harrington. But we are reprinting this book and I need to know what font this is to recreate the cover.

We couldn't find it for building the website so we used Harrington: http://www.haikuwisdom.com/

But now we need the font for the second edition of the book. The original publisher is unavailable.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Diana aka Bonesai

Hey guys,

I've been strugling to find out what is the font used in this picture.
At first I thought it was Walkway, but the A caps didnt look right and the S dindt look similar.
After I thought it was Sansation font, but the S didnt look right.
Any ideas or pointer would help out alot!

Thanks,
George

Monotype has announced the Monotype Baseline™ platform, a cloud-based developer platform that offers access to tens of thousands of fonts. The solution is designed to help OEMs, independent software vendors and developers build software products and connected devices that deliver the best user experiences.

Recently I came upon a typeface class called, Realist(you guys have probably heard about it). Is it the same as Grostesque, because I saw it used for typefaces such as Akzidenz and Franklin Gothic. If not, can you please tell me about some of its characteristics.

I basically know(I think) all the general classes but can someone list them and their defining characteristics.

Thanks

Hello everybody,

I've been reading a lot about typefaces and how different kinds can be combined in order to create layers of meaning. Type foundries usually suggest pairings for their own fonts, most notably Hoefler & Frere Jones and Font Bureau. I am looking to create an unusual mix of moods for a personal branding project:

- Hearty, friendly
- Weird, quirky
- Contemplative, dramatic

You can think of this mix as the equivalent of a Wes Anderson, Sylvain Chomet, or even a Spike Jonze film. Sort of like what film critic Peter Rainer writes about Spike Jonze's film, Being John Malkovich:
“It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.”

Why are type foundries more intent on catching people who use pirated fonts rather than catching those make them available in the first place. There is a website dedicated to providing free Helvetica and Gotham fonts, why dont they do something about that rather than catching some lone, broke designer. Yeah it is illegal but doing something about it is ineffective and inefficient. Why not just try stopping the websites that distribute these fonts for free. Maybe you will scare some people who use these fonts but that is it about it. You just wasted a whole lot of time pursuing one offender and what are you gonna get out of it ? Pretty much nothing. So why not try to cut off the root of this problem.

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am looking into the use of Bevel fonts (see example image below) and I am struggling to find a history of the font - where it came about/why it came about/any decent foundries that specialise in Beveled fonts.

If anyone knows anything about Bevel fonts i'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Robyn
