Pétala Pro gave his first steps almost ten years ago. During this time, the quest for perfection had forced several interruptions. It was necessary recalculate the route, tread other ways, discover new maps, and make easy curves. After all, a new milestone on typeface design was reached.
Pétala Pro combines readability with a gentle but strong personality. The smooth and balanced forms shares space with expressive ink traps. The 18 styles of the family – from Thin to Black – allow the flexibility needed to complex design briefs. When designing the different weights, rather than automated solutions, subtle adjustments were made to value the optical qualities of each style. Such care, makes all the difference under extreme conditions.
A few colleagues and I were discussing book design and the interaction of text with images/figures that flow within the surrounding text. Specifically, we were debating whether or not the paragraph that follows an image (and its caption, if present) should be indented.
I am looking for the 2 typefaces used in these examples, the serif and the typewriter typefaces.
If you have any ideas, please let me know.
I think a lot of these fonts are the same, but can anyone help me identify all of them? Thank you!
Hello I need one last font identification,
Its very similar its a italic serif, very similar to something in the Bodoni family but with much thinner lines. Any guesses?
Thanks again for you assistance and consideration!
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.
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
There is a job opening for a Font Administrator at the Penguin Group USA, based in New York. Below is a link to the information on their website and an overview of the requirements:

I came across this sans a while back and haven't really been able to find it.
It's used for headlines in swedish Bon Magazine.
It looks a bit like Neuzeit, as well as a Drescher Grotesk, but it's not quite there.
I'm sorry about the horrid picture quality, I'll try to pick up a copy and get some scans asap.
Thanks in advance!
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.
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.
I always like working on mixing type, it might be frustrating, in the end you always find something nice. However, this time around, it seems really hard. I am looking for a serif typeface that fits Knockout's JuniorFlyWeight, it shouldn't be as compressed as Knockout itself but a little more condensed than your normal Garamond or Chronicle. I am working on an editorial design and I'm trying to achieve a little bit more elegance with the fonts' thin and high letterforms.
Looking forward to your recommendations and thank you in advance!
An experiment in satire expressed through typographic style. This recent quote from a Muslim cleric seemed custom made for the format of a Wild West wanted poster. I based the typography on actual fonts from old posters and contemporary wood-type fonts, but rendered it in walnut ink, then added my own faux Asian-Farsee brush calligraphy. Apologies to the purists, at least the text is exact, as lifted from one of the many inexact translations available at online news sites and on the crumpled up front page of the Times at my local coffee shop.
