I'm setting an extended text in Dolly. I like it, but I don't think it works well for headings, so I'm trying to find a suitable face for the headings.
What I've been trying so far has been Fontin, which shares some of the calligraphic characteristics of Dolly that make it distinctive. However, one opinion I've gotten is that it doesn't provide enough contrast, being too similar without being the same. Because Dolly is a face with strong character, it may be worth having a strongly contrasting style.
I'm tending towards using a sans serif for the headings. Since there are going to be multiple consecutive lines of headings, it's important not too have anything excessively blatant.
I'm working on an academic document with lots of footnotes and endnotes. The body copy is set in Minion Pro and the headings are set in Gotham. Should endnote references on headings or any text within a document that is not the same typeface as the body copy, inherit the type styles of the word they are applied to?
I cannot find a good rule for this...
Hi, typophiles! I usually use the term masthead to refer to the large logo at the top of a front page of a newspaper; I've recently found that masthead actually means something different (list of staff), and that I should be using the term "heading." This seems like a rather broad term, though. Is there a specific term for this section at the top of the front page with the logo, tagline, date, etc?
Greater Albion have jusst released two new families through Fontspring and Myfonts:
Corsham was inspired by traditional stonemason's engraved lettering designs. Designed to be used alone, or in combination with our Corton family, ithas wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Four faces are offered-regular bold and black weights as well as a condensed form. All faces include a range of Opentype features, including ligatures and old-style numerals. The Corsham faces merge 'olde-worlde' charm with fun character, yet remaining clear and legible for text use.
This rather interesting 'g' appears in headings in Hvem/Hvad/Hvor anno 1952.
Remember those 1970s science fiction dramas which had such charming 'futuristic' sets and backdrops? Remember the intriguing 'future' lettering and signage the set designers would devise-often coupled with interesting 'futuristic' spellings? Movella, Greater Albion's latest release, is something of a new departure for us and is a family of three typefaces inspired by that design ethos. The three faces- regular, italic and the 3d solid form - are all capitals faces which combine a feeling of 'retro-futuristic' design with easy legibility.
Movella can now be found on Myfonts and Fontspring. Here'a sample of it in action:
Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched 'Corton' a pair of display Roman small capitals faces.
Corton was inspired by the traditional lettering on a gravestone in an English village. While that might sound a rather solemn beginning, Corton has wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Two faces are offered-regular and titular. Between them they are ideal signage and display faces, merging 'olde-worlde' charm and fun character.
Corton is currently available through Myfonts, and is offered at a 35% introductory discount.
