New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I am fairly new to vectorizing type and I would like some very constructive and critical feedback. I am very new to Glyphs and that is what I used to build this out (see the below to get all intimate with my nodes). Please let me know what you think! Where I can improve it, and other thoughts.
I've been trying to find a good online lettering class for a while. Its been very hard to find any class, let alone a good class. Any help or directions will be very appreciated.
Last year I created the Magical Unicorn Typeface: A typeface, while flawed, still managed to capture the spirit of these noble animals in graphemes. However, it wasn't the end, a continuation of the Unicorn Typeface was a must.
The Unicorn-Pegasus letters are an development of the Unicorn font. With the translation of the original drawings to the usable Unicorn font, many details disappeared and the hand-drawn character was lost. This series of initials is extremely detailed and compared to the Unicorn Font, no shapes have been cut. Each Unicorn-Pegasus is complete, from the tip of the horn to the far end of the tail.
About Heráldica Script
We are proud to add a very complex and new font to our collection.
Ornamented scripts are a Koziupa/Paul specialty, and Heraldica is one of their most expressive. It attains the very definition of deluxe by conjoining the classic thin-and-thick script treatment with thin-only counterpart strokes, then it goes the extra mile with a varied complement of overlaid flourishes. The usual assortment of multiple alternates and ending forms pushes it even further in class and versatility.
Monograms, logos, jewelry packaging and book covers are only a few of the possibilities with such a high-end script.
I'm working on a piece of lettering with plans of extending it to a full display typeface later.
I would highly appreciate any professional feedback on this stage.
(yep i want to stick with such leg for "R"=)
Here's a sample of some lettering I've been working on. I would love some feedback!
I'm a beginner when it comes to designing letterforms, this is one of my first renders in illustrator.
If you have any tips or comments or woes, please share.
Me & Martina Flor created this new project called www.letteringvscalligraphy.com
Is a battle between a letterer and a calligraphy.
Here there is a littlel press kit: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pj8ie3swhh3g2i7/PressKitLVSC.pdf
Hope you like it.
Have a nice day
I want to share this typography with you, original arabic calligraphy inspires me from long time in different medias.
This is my last work on that theme.
Just in time for Xmas and New Year celebration we are proud to introduce a new font to our growing collection.
Platinus Script Pro is the latest example of what has now become a Sudtipos tradition: Adapting conventional calligraphic methods from the last two centuries to produce modern digital scripts for the current one.
This time the resulting font explores the evolution of invitation scripts from the classic commercial lettering of the 1930s to the ideas clearly visible in the greeting cards of the 1980s and 1990s.
Most base characters are made up of a single stroke, with some of strokes driven from the top down,
I would love some critique/feedback on this logotype I'm working on. It's a for a game with themes of retro laundrettes/laundromats. It's worked up from sketches into illustrator, but I haven't been able to put the amount of time I would of like to at the moment. Anything would be great!
I heavily modified a letter from a typeface and will be displaying it on my site as a portfolio piece. My questions is, would this be considered "lettering" or "type"?

We are proud to announce the release of Storefront.
Storefront is what the prolific and talented American sign painters of the 1920s and 1930s would have created if they had access to the advanced lettering and type technologies we have today. Rooted in an incomplete Alf Becker alphabet sample, Storefront is my usual overdose on alternates and swashes, my eternal attempt at giving typesetting that ever-elusive handmade impression.
I'm posting this with the kind permission of one of the mods (Thank again Dan!)
I'm an avid ambigram designer, and have been the content editor & writer for Ambigram.com for approximately 4 years now. Recently I've started working on a book called Ambigrams Revealed, which has been accepted by PeachPit Press & will be published in March 2013. The book will be an international collection of ambigrams, case studies, tutorials and other content, along with a phenomenal judging panel which consists of three well known ambigram artists/critics and three well known graphic designers.
Maybe I'm searching for the wrong things, but I'm struggling to find examples of (cursive) house number lettering, often placed by the front door of properties (back in the 50s/60s).
Anyone got good references for them?
I was wondering if this lettering is a font or based on a font.
Thanks in advance!
We are proud to announce the release of Aventura
Aventura is burlesquely round, stylishly seductive, eternally sugar-fixed, and loving to a fault. Plenty of stylistic alternates are included to heighten the mood or soften it. Either way you look at it, there's a lot of love in the air.

this is my custom lettering and the question is - is this still letter "z"? Any suggestions? Any suggesting at all?
Thank you very much!
Enjoy! It's kind of fun for the design enthusiast since the artist showed his creative process from pizza box to trial runs and stuff.
Does anyone here even like street art?
There are a few places available for the workshops being offered at Cooper Union this spring. These courses are electives within the Type@Cooper program but some places are available to non-participants. For more information visit http://coopertype.org/extended/

Hello! I recently watched Blue Valentine and I was touched by it. I've cut a GIF animation of the film title in the end with that beautiful effect of the photo in the back. The typeface reminds me of Knockout by Hoefler & Jones. Is that it? If not, does anyone recognize this font?
I'm looking for recommendations on calligraphers/lettering experts who specialise in script typography, particularly the "copperplate script" kind for logo use.
Does anyone have contacts or recommendations?
In Deutsche Schriftkunst by Albert Kapr there's a three-page fold out of the Trajan Inscription. On the overleaf there's this:
The "Almighty" Seb Lester updated his website with brand new lettering posters.
Scketches show us how he got to the final solution, developing the entire process.
I'm a big fan of all Lester works (who is not?...lol) and I wish I could start developing some fine lettering artworks...
We can see a lot of hand-writing developement, then vectorized.
About the vector-converting process, do you have any, suggestion, tutorials, links, guides, in order to understand the right way to do that?
I've launched 3 new limited edition prints today, 'Dreams',
'Stars' and 'So Much To Do'. I'm really pleased how they
turned out. I'm attaching a few images. More details here:
I've also had a major website update with new typographic
commissions for clients including Cadbury, Macy's and Liberty.
