I am designing the latest issue of one of my magazines. The font we use is Kepler as headings and body copy mixed with Verlag as title headings. I am not loving the font Kepler and want to change it but not too dramatically - any advice much appreciated on which alternative font I could use that would mix well with Verlag. I have looked at Farnham but fear it may be too trendy for the magazine. It is a womans magazine, but for the older generation.

Thanks in advance

i am tempted to use scala as the main body text for a small magazine fashion supplement, but what would be a good sans for headlines? would verlag work with scala? or should one stick to tried and tested combinations like verlag and miller? any suggestions...?



This turns out to be difficult to search for online, due to the unfortunate primary use of the name "InDesign."

The serif in this magazine feels very familiar, but I can't quite place it.

I think a lot of these fonts are the same, but can anyone help me identify all of them? Thank you!

hi all, any clue what bodoni-like serif was used on this cover?

thanks for your help!

Fictional magazine covers from Blade Runner... as shown in the blade runner bonus feature "Signs of the Times: Graphic Design". The covers were created by production illustrator Tom Southwell in 1980-1981 and appeared in the background on a magazine stand in the city streets.

hi, i'm a design student and i'm analyzing the editorial design of a portuguese magazine about literature, named LER.
i've tried to find out what font it is but i'm still without the answer...

I design a magazine, each issue is about a specific city. The next issue will be about Athens, Greece. I am trying to get in touch with any type designers who live and/or work in Greece, preferably Athens. Do you know of anyone?

The past 2 issues of the magazine have used typefaces created by high profile type designers in appropriate cities and I wish to continue this precedent by representing the city through the typography.

Any help or opinions on Greek type please get in touch! thanks. Feel free to email me here:

Fonts used in the 80s

Hey Typophiles

I sure hope someone out there can help me.
Currently i am in the middle of writing an essay about the style in the 80s, including everything from fashion to magazine design.
I am having a bit of trouble though finding any info on what types of fonts where used back in the 80s, for magazines, ads and the likes.

If someone could direct me towards some sites with info, or perhaps share some examples on fonts and how they where used, that would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance :)

When placing a caption beside body copy what is the general rule of thumb? Should they both have the same leading? For example, my body copy is 7pt with 9pt leading should I set the caption to 6pt with 9pt leading? see attached sample. Thanks.

Does anyone recognize the serif font used in the body copy here?

Many thanks

Does anyone know which typeface is this on the cover of this magazine? (where it reads "Choice") And also the others? Glosa, Acta?

And also on this magazine:

Thank you!

I would appreciate it, if somebody could tell me which font this is and where to buy it.

This example was taken from fashion magazine 10.

Thank you!

I'm looking for the variation on the classic New York Times font that can be found on the T Magazine website and in the print editions as a sub-header and occasionally header. Any help is greatly appreciated.

NY Times won't allow copying of images, so I only have links. And of the pages have it at the top, labeled "Women's Fashion", "Men's Fashion", "Design", "Travel", etc.

Try here
Or here

Thank you so much.

Does anyone know what wedge-serif font is the one used where it is written "PODER NERD"?

And the one which reads "Guia Tech", although it's very small to read it in this photo, I know. (some "high-tech italic squarish and awkward font")

Thank you so much!

I'm interested to ID this angular script used in NewWork magazine. Any ideas?

Curious if anyone knows the two font families on the cover - the serif one (see 'The Richest People In America') one and the sans serif one (see 'Jay-Z & Warren Buffet'). Thanks for any help in advance!

Hi there,

I'm looking for nice serif for a magazine.
It's a Magazine about Cars so the Serif should not be to sweet :)
It's published in several languages:
+ Russian

(also in Japanese, Chinese and Korean, but this is another problem but don't hold back)

Can anyone recommend a good latin+cyrillic serif?
I liked Arnhem and Albertina but don't know if they work.

I would be very happy if anyone could help!!

Well, I'm just posting about my students' magazine launch. Read / view and enjoy online at Another issue to come in two weeks!

Weingut Script Flourish is a decorative display font with high contrasts, perfectly drawn to the tiniest details. The font is trimmed to fairly large font sizes and is highly suitable for chapter titles or book jackets as well as Headlines, Invitations and wine labels, although also impressing with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Inspired by the hand drawn Blätterschrift from the 19th century Mettenleiter’s Schriftenmagazin, its basic structure is related to the English Script. The creative process started in summer 2009 and after 600 hours of work, over a 2 year period, Weingut now unfolds to reveal all its charms.

The magazine "Vogue Paris" recently changed the font they use.

Can somebody help me identify it?

Thanks so much in advance.

What are these fonts?
I'm doing a project for school to make an editorial based on an existing magazines layout. So I just need to know the fonts used. I know what the body copy font is for the Cosmopolitan but I dont know what font is used for the headers.
