New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking for a typeface that's thin, condensed and feels architectural or blueprint-like. Eric Olsen's Stratum is pretty close, but doesn't seem right for the job.
I ran across this design from Pentagram and was wondering if anyone knew what they used:
Any guesses? A link to purchase would be super helpful. Thanks!
I'm researching about Seravek type family. I woud like to read some reviews. Do you know an avaiable review to this type family?
Hey there Typophiles!
I've been interested in type for some years now but never really tried myself at this discipline.
I recently started thinking about a simple sans-serif font, based on my natural way of drawing letters. So I opened a Tumblr to document my creation process and share some studies on well known sans-serif fonts (mainly Helvetica, Futura and Century Gothic). What you'll find now is pictures of some of my very first drafts and visual studies of those fonts (comparing sizes, angles and so on, trying to understand their logic). And hopefully you'll find in some weeks/months/years a final OTF file for you to download.
Here's the site!
I am trying to find a book about type design focusing on the process of designing a font. That is, since the catalyst or the idea, to the first primitive sketches, through the processes of adjusting and choosing the best forms for specific letters, designing alternates, etc. I am more interested in understanding how type designers "think" than the results they achieve.
Can any one point me in some direction?
After a quick search, I couldn't find any reference to such a book in Typophile.
(Thanks for the replies on the original thread, opened in the wrong forum, specially about this beauty. Hoping to get some more suggestions, still!)
