Am currently researching type families for use in a general-interest magazine that will be produced. The design is being generated from the ground up with no prior style guides; as well as developing structure and layout, appropriate text and display faces must be selected.
Am wondering of any suggestions you may have for classic or contemporary faces in an editorial setting that you're feeling at the moment. Or in fact strategies you may have in place for selecting typefaces in these cases that have worked for you.
Thanks in advance
Hello guys, my first topic here and i'm a little curious about this WIRED cover.
The headline definitely looks like Cyclone by H&J but it's italic, any chance of being custom or hand tweeked?
The script like one in the bottom i don't have a clue. Any help?
Thanks in advance.
I was curious if anyone could ID the title of this magazine for me. Where it says Mirage. I have looked at quite a few and got close with some but not quite right on. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
This brand new font family was just released this month from Portuguese designer Dino dos Santos, and it's a real beauty.
I'm thinking about buying the display, text, and sans. What are your thoughts? A new classic or nothing special?

I'm a starting graphic designer and really want help to find out what these are (i've tried "What Font is That" and "Identifont" already).
There are a few fonts, as far as I can count: the serif one used for people's name, a curved-joined san serif font ("Nicholas Hoult" name), and a simple San Serif for some of the text (it's not Futura, it's more narrow, and has an angle (the e goes up, the W's middle bar pushes to the left - I think it's like "Organic" or something).
Please please, would also love to know if you know what the Drama title font is.
P.S. Enjoy the photography
P.S.S. I just put samples of the fonts here, if that's easier. Thank you
Er... it does say anything goes for this forum, so... here goes: a shamless plug for my wife's eBay sale of design magazines and ephemera starting with some Typographica new series editions some still (rather frighteningly) available for 99p!
Hi all, can anyone identify the font used for the masthead of Peaches Geldof's magazine 'Disappear Here'? View here: http://disappearheremag.com/images/masthead.gif
Hello! I've just seen this beautiful typeface, and I'm looking for a similar font for use in a magazine as a display/titles typeface. Which typefaces are similar to "Platform"? It is beautiful!
Hello! I'm doing a research and probably a project which the final "product" (only for academic purposes, I emphatize) would be a magazine in which design would be the main subject. I was thinking something in a similar square format as the new Creative Review (after the redesign).
I've looked typefaces such as Apex New, which is one of my favourite "squarish" sans-serifs. Chester Jenkins did an awesome job on that! The typeface is beautiful and it seems to work nicely on body text. (Klavika is beautiful, but I want to see something a little bit different and yet, with some "squarish" proportions)
The other one that seems to fit is "Leitura Sans", by Dino dos Santos for titles and body text.
Anyone know this font?
It's similar to Clearface but can't seem to put a finger on it.
As it happens, one of the jobs that pay my bills is laying out a journal on welfare and social policies published twice a month by a no profit research institute.
The journal is entering its fortieth year of continuous publication, and, while studying how to deal with the “death of print”, we would also like to refresh its printed appearance.
My goal is to add some white space/flexibility and some typographic niceties (such as proper small caps and old style numerals).
Constrains are mostly due to a next to inexistent budget (cram as much text as possible per page, use only already available fonts) and a mostly aging readership (don’t make the text too small).
Attached there’s a first draft of the revised layout.
Any kind of criticism is welcome.
Really need to match the fonts circled in the image. There are two images, one with what I need circled (low-res) and one that's higher res. Here's the link to an online copy if that would help - http://www.zinio.com/reader.jsp?issn=RX1099-6729
I really appreciate the help.
Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.

Hi, I'm looking for a serif or slab font with a large x value to use on a magazine cover. The text is just 2 letter: RH, and I would like it to form a rectangle standing on its smallest side. The magazine is a business publication, so there is a concern on it looking serious. Anyone have any suggestions?
My typeface knowledge is pretty thin, so please feel free to quote obvious choices. So far I've come up with things like Palatino, Weiss and Minion. But I' not sure I'm on the right track.
A bit of a tricky one, a script typeface taken from a vintage copy of vogue.
Its most likely that it is hand drawn type created in-house, but does anybody have any idea what this script typeface is / know of any around that have similar properties?
Forgive the mostly poor quality of the image.
Hi all !
Can somebody tell me what font is used on the cover of this magazine (thin and curly font shown below in the image)?
Months ago, I discovered the font on internet… and now I can't find it anymore…
Tank you !

Looking for the font of that logo. Seems simple enough, I guess, for people much better at this than I. Sorry there aren't more letters.

Someone convince me this does not bode ill for the rest of the design profession...?
I'm currently designing a photography magazine geared towards women. I'm trying to finalize the typeface I'll use for the body copy and I'm looking for some advice before I commit to anything. Right now I have the copy set in Cochin 8.5pt. I'm set on using a serif and I love the look of this, but I'm a little concerned with the readability. I'm not averse to spending some money on a quality font that can be used throughout the magazine, I like the look of Mercury and even Sentinel (H&FJ), but wanted to get some opinions before I purchase anything.
As always, thanks for the help!
I am new to this forum, but I have been reading and learning as an anonymous visitor for quite a while. Thank you, guys, for letting your awesome expertise be available to dilettantes like me!
Here's my first question:
Do any of you know any good examples of the use of Compacta. I recently used it for a project, after having researched which font to use for a few months, and can't entirely stop. Here's what triggered my use of the font, a cover I spotted while the camera trucked over a magazine rack in Jean-Luc Godard's "Sympathy for the Devil" (1968).
Design like (see attached image) is everywhere - the b&w simplistic modernist look that bodoni always finds itself in.
Can anyone tell me when about this design look first emerged? What was it inspired by? ANY information?
Im new to this forum, so a quick hello!
I'm about to undertake a redesign of a well loved Australian bodyboarding magazine.
We are currently using Helvetica Neue as body copy, Corporate SQ for captions and Folio's.
I am looking to find a typeface that is contemporary, clean, and legible. Our core reader group is aged 15 - 25 with that age increasing over the last few years. The magazine is youth oriented, fun, exciting and has been at the top of the genre for just over 20 years.
In my opinion, serif fonts are the best for body copy, but i was wondering if there was a classy sans-serif font that would do the job nicely. the magazine still has to be relevant to the youth market, but i wish to add a touch of class and sophistication to the mag.
Anyone remember Line Magazine from the very early 2000's? It was put out by Tyler Brule (Of Wallpaper*) and only published 3-4 issues.
I'm looking for copies of it. I know this is a super obscure/rare request, but I figured someone might be a magazine collector on Typophile.
