New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm a new and learning designer just taking my first typography class. It is something I am really enjoying.
As part of my class, I was assigned a typeface to study and do research on and present as my final project. The face I was given is "Filosophia." It is a beautiful one and I know it was developed by Zuzana Licko of Emigre Fonts in the 1990's. I also know that it was inspired by the classic "Bodoni." Outside of that, I have found very little information on Filosphia itself.
Does anyone know of any books that include information about it or its history? Are there any groups, or communities dedicated to Filosophia? How about any valid websites?
Thanks for the help!
Hi! I am one of Warren Chappell's only descendants which, while cool, has always been merely a novelty. Now my own children are teenagers and they have begun to understand how important their great-great-uncle was.
Just yesterday we found A.A. Milne books designed by him. They were excited! We know a little bit of the distant family stuff, but now I want to find more sources about him beyond those on the general search.
Can any of you help me? Thank you.
Just found this site that claims to be the Wikipedia of typography. You can look up fonts, learn about typography, get involved in forums, Add your own fonts and knowledge. Looks like it’s pretty early days and there are plenty of holes in the content but you can get an idea of what it is going to be about.
All seems to be stuff that Typophile does in some way other. To me it seems a little ill-conceived what does everyone else think? The search tools are not as good as something like myfonts.com, the forum will need to work hard to beat Typophile and the type info doesn’t seem that great to me.
What does everyone else think?
I am happy to announce that after a long period of development, my type family Acorde is available for purchase at http://www.willerstorfer.com
About the typeface:
Acorde is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. It was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. The typeface’s name is derived from ‘a’ ‘cor’porate ‘de’sign typeface, however Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design purposes as well.
