I can't tell exactly what this typeface is, unless its a combination of multiple?
The A and N look like Futura but the rest of the letters look more like Din
And I cant place the C, unless its modified Futura
Or if its a totally different typeface all together, I would love to know what it is!

Looking for Arabic fonts to combine with Gill Sans in headlines and with Scala or sth similar in the long copy

Hello everybody,
Right now I'm designing an academic online magazine, and I'm looking for
1) an Arabic font to pair with Gill Sans for headlines (light) and sub-heads (reg)
2) an Arabic font to pair with a humanist serif like Scala (it must be a font that supports Greek) in the long copy.

I've been doing some research, and came across some stuff that I liked, but I know really only a little bit about Arabic typography (I'm really not a typography specialist anyway), so I thought I'd try to get some professional's opinion (besides my partner's, whom I'll pester with my questions tonight, too).
I especially enjoyed reading this discussion: http://typophile.com/node/92658

New: HapticScript family by Henning Skibbe

Forums: 

The HapticScript family is a connected brush script with a warm, personal and soft character. The typeface family has five styles from Light through Black. It was designed as a companion and extension to the Haptic sans-serif family.

HapticScript has up to 14 variations for each glyph. The almost 2,000 characters per font including 40+ ligatures enable designers to give each word an individual look. Many swash characters for initials and word endings make words looks as if they were hand lettered.

Five Styles: Light, Regular, Semibold, Bold and Black

OpenType features: Ligatures, Contextual Alternates, Stylistic Sets, Old Style figures, Tabular figures

Good typography for a law and crime magazine

Hi!

I'm working with a project, as a part of my education, where I'm about to develop a new magazine. The Magazine is to be called "Frizon" and should present articles concerning law and crime. I want to use two different fonts in the magazine to start with. The magazine is thought to be liberal and rethinking. I would be glad if anyone here could help me to figure out two good fonts to use for the occasion.

Is there a sans serif that works for print body copy?

Forums: 

Hi all,
I'm working on a magazine supplement and I was asked to set the body copy in a "modern, classy sans-serif font." Yeah, I know, modern and classy...
I've set it in Gotham for the moment, but I was wondering if anyone has an idea for a typeface that will work better or any tips for making Gotham and sans-serif in general more readable as body copy.
Thanks in advance!

Serif Typeface with Serif cut/s ()

Hi guys,

I am looking for a serif typeface along the lines of Marlene (http://www.typonine.com/fonts/font-library/marlene/), that has a large family which includes stencil cuts. I am working on an online magazine layout and would like to implement the stencil version as a hover effect for links.

The foundry selling it should therefore be able to host the type (have a web version).

Thank you!

Feedback: Survival guide/magazine for graphic designers.

Survival Guide/Magazine
about graphic design.

The first exam on Westerdals Graphic Design was to make an inspiring and teaching magazine about graphic design. The target group was future students on Westerdals graphic Design.

The survival guide portrays the first year of Westerdals Graphic Design as a year of hell. If you aren’t following the guide, then you wont be able to survive the first year. The magazine is based on a step-by-step guide with assets like dictionary and notes. With a focus on blending military influenced typography and Swiss black and white illustrations. It tries to create the feeling of survival, just like the old military guides in the US. Army. The format is a pocket size so the students will able to carry it all the time when survival will be needed.

Looking for good fonts for an original 1930s pulp style alyout

Forums: 

I am putting together a new 7x10 book in a classic pulp layout with the 2 columns, illustrations and ads. I was wondering what font choices the typophile community would recommend.

I am a big face of deco display faces, but I am having a hard time deciding what would be an optimal body font.

The wrinkle that complicates things is that the visual style of the book is a combination between the 1970s and the 1930 after the books 2 protagonists.

I am mainly concerned for the print edition at this point, but something that would be able to be embedded in an ebook would be a plus.

Many thanks

How do you evaluate (and show client) typefaces for magazine body copy?

Hi there,

I have a client wanting to redesign a magazine, including fonts for body text as well as headers, callouts, etc. What is the best way to compile and show, on paper, what different fonts look like in print? I'm finding that some foundries have PDF samples of text, but others and MyFonts don't, so not sure what the best strategy would be. Any resources you recommend?

Thanks so much for your help.

serif font magazine body copy?

hello,

my magazine uses bembo for body copy, which i find a bit dated and better for book copy.

can anyone please recommend a more modern serif that works for body copy? Perhaps a little cleaner than Bembo.

I am considering paring it with Museo (headlines) throughout the magazine.

The magazine has a dated look, so just looking for something more modern with a little more weight than Bembo, I find it light, wide and antiquated.

If you know of anything great, don't be afraid to suggest what it might pair with for headlines etc...

I really appreciate any suggestions. Looking forward to some feedback.

21st Century Caslon

Thought I'd mine the knowledge of you experts for some counsel.
I'm currently on the hunt for a potential replacement for Adobe Caslon for magazine body copy.

We'd like to have something a little narrower ideally, to save space, and it would be nice to freshen up the characters. I've done what has felt like a lot of research, but have come up disappointed by the lack of Caslon-esque oldstyle faces available—especially in a useful range of weights. I think the closest thing I've come to an enjoyable solution is Sabon Next.

Anyone have other ideas or info about anything being currently worked on?

Appreciate any direction

Japanese Typefaces / Type Designers

I design a magazine, each issue is about a specific city. Previous issues have included Sarajevo, Detroit, London and Athens. The next city is Kyoto. I am trying to get in touch with any type designers who live and/or work in Japan, preferably Kyoto. Do you know of anyone? Do you know of any great examples of typefaces produced in Japan (that are Latin/Roman etc not Kanji/Hiragana etc.)

I'm also currently investigating whether stacked/vertical type would be a suitable alternative to regular horizontal type. Can anyone recommend any interesting monospace/unicode faces that would make for a pleasing vertical stack?

Any help or opinions on Japanese type please get in touch! thanks. Feel free to email me here: hello@luketonge.com
