As Types Grow Older – Re-Release of Grimoire and Sadness

Forums: 

My very first typefaces Sadness and Grimoire have just been published in new and revised versions at Myfonts. After the tragic end of the established Fountain Type Foundry I had to ask myself the following question: Is there still any justification for the existence of my 20 year old fonts?

Alternative to TS Torque

hey everyone,

this board has been incredibly helpful to so many past requests, so I’m really looking forward to your replies!

I’m currently working for a client and I am looking for a squarish typeface with rounded edges. So far I am rather pleased with typesupply's »Torque« http://vllg.com/typesupply/torque – however it’s lacking a semibold between medium and bold – the bold face is a little to heavy for this design that we're aiming for.

I’m having a hard time finding proper alternatives to torque, because it is very specific, so I was hoping maybe one of you folks knows a similar typeface?

thank you in advance!

Pendula, a new release

Forums: 

Pendula™ is an adaptation of Pittorseques Droites (Scenic Casual) found in the circa 1924 specimen book of La Fonderie Typographique Francaise. Changes to a very small number of the original characters were made to make the typeface work better with more languages, as well as for aesthetic reasons. A newly designed Cyrillic character set was added to make the design even more useful, enlarging the character set from the basic Latin set to over 650 glyphs covering seven languages. Pendula™ also includes tabular and proportional number sets plus a bonus set of over thirty monetary symbols. Other international symbols were included too. It is a wonderfully casual and flexible design, usable in many situations.

Feedback on type for band, Shrewdness of Apes, would be much appreciated.

I started by writing the name with a paint pen, scanning it in, and turning it into a vector. My goal is to create something that is upbeat, fresh, and doesn't look homemade. Feel free to critique it in a reverse compliment sandwich.

Here is a link to the band for comparison. http://mableyandgreek.bandcamp.com/#zplays

Thanks!

Looking a san-serif rounded font family with single story "a" and "g" glyphs in the spirit of VAG Rounded.

Forums: 

(As always, I apologise as always if I posted this in the wrong forum but I don't have specific font sample to work with here.)

Hello Typophile,

I am always bashing Comic Sans, but I would really like to find and suggest a solid alternative to it. My bank (Lloyd's TSB) use their own variant of VAG Rounded for almost all of their body text which is friendly and easy-to-read. Two prerequisites for the perfect font family/typeface to recommend.

A key issue with standard VAG Rounded is it suffers from homoglyph with a only a slightly larger stem on the "i" and "j" glyphs to differentiate between them. Which was rectified in the Lloyd's TSB version. As you can see from their website.

Trouble Identifying This Font - Rounded Blackletter ?

The text is on a curve... but it should be good enough to identify. If you cannot suggest an exact match then something very similar would be very much appreciated. I'm not a font expert... but it looks like an italic rounded blackletter font with very extended and curvy serifs.

This comes from the National Bohemian Beer label.

See this link for a high resolution photo that shows the font as used on the top of the label.

Sort of like Arial Rounded MT?

I found this image via an online photo archive belonging to an artist here in the NL. I'm no typographer but it looks like a slightly wider version of Arial Rounded MT, no? Particular attention towards P, L, C, M, E, and S... very rounded, even 'techno/space-like'. After exhausting the powers of online type queries I am hoping that someone here can help identify this particular face. One thing the artist mentioned was that it was highly possible it was a free font and dated around 2008.

I know the text itself might be small but I think it's possible to make out the differences of the type.

Thanks a lot, Typophiles! : )

Rounded edges font suggestions

Forums: 

Hi there,
I'm working on a logo and need some help identifying the right font to use.
I'm looking for a sans-serif font with soft rounded edges, preferablly something with a single-stack lowercase "a". I like the humanistic qualities of Avenir but obviously this font isn't rounded.

I also like the style of the font in the new esurance logo, which I have attached below.

Fonts that I've considered so far include:
1. Comforta (although I feel like it's almost too rounded).
2. Museo (getting closer but some of the elements remind me of an old typewriter font).

Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks so much!

Anchors wont match from Illustrator to FontLab

Forums: 

Hello,
my first post here.

I have a problem that I don't think I have had before and I need help solving it. I can't find the problem on the web.

When I copy my glyphs from Illustrator and paste them into FLS the shapes transforms from smooth rounded corners into just cornered. In Illustrator the anchor points is set to smooth. Why do FLS change my anchor points?

My English is to limited to explain the problem. Please see the attached images.
The black and grey image is in Illustrator and the white image with a black line is in FLS.

John Craven's Newsround sans-serif

Hi all

I'm a newbie so I hope this doesn't seem impolite for a first post. I am trying to recreate the John Craven's Newsround logo from the 1970s era and I'm struggling with the typeface used.

Please see the attachment. I know that the words "John Craven's" are pretty much a version of Flash Bold but I am really foxed by the large rounded sans serif used for the main font: "NEWSROUND".

Looking for a perfectly round serif "C"

Forums: 

I'm creating a return address stamp for a couple with last names beginning with C and A. We want the C to encircle the A, which is totally possible with many century-gothic type fonts, but I would like to find something a little more interesting. Does anyone know of a serif font with a perfectly round c? It doesn't matter if it's upper or lowercase.

Thanks!
