Screw this lettering

Forums: 

Had this silly pun in my mind when making this image:

http://www.inkscapeforum.com/download/file.php?id=4570

Though the effect looks fancy, I would like some suggestions how to make the lettering part more "streamlined".

It was modelled with blender, with a simple screw command, which, can work with continuous lines.
How would you connect letters with horizontal segments?

I wouldn't prefer adding loops personally, so a regular script writing is a no-go.

Release CAMINITO

Forums: 

Hi all, I expect find you fine in this new year. This is my first entrance of 2015, now releasing my latest type project CAMINITO, a layered font family inspired in Argentinean art craft «Fileteado Porteño». I started this project 2 years ago, taking inspiration from numerous ads, posters and signs installed along the city of Buenos Aires. Now the font family is available at MyFonts.com

Spry Roman

Forums: 

Hi all,
I just wanted to show my first release of 2015. Spry Roman was first created with lettering I did with a Zebra G pointed nib and ink on slightly toothy paper. I rework my lettering in Photoshop, but try to leave the look reasonably close to the original writing for fonts like this. Spry Roman is a fully featured Opentype font. It include Central European language support, a full set of small caps, simple fractions, ordinals, and a variety of ornaments and flourishes.

looking for 1930-1950 industrial style lettering, esp. logos

Forums: 

I've been looking and not really finding lettering from the 1930-1950 - real lettering, not remakes of.
The "Vespa" style is what I'd really like to find more of. Car logos have been my best resource so far,
but industrial style product or company logos would really be good. Attached is some of what I've found.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Dan Cotton

I'd really appreciate some feedback

Hi everyone,

I'm glad to be here and I'm looking forward to some great discussions. I thought I'd dive right in: I'm a graphic designer and just starting out with calligraphy and lettering. I've finished my first project and I'd appreciate some feedback on it. On any angle, really. I have no one here to critique my work and there seem to be some real pros here, so I hope I can learn a lot from you guys :)

Here's my project:

I’m currently looking for any information about vintage hand lettering signage in the city of OPorto in Portugal. I know it’s a difficult subject to find information about, but anyone who knows something about it, please let me know. Also, any info about the history of hand lettering signs would be really helpful. Thanks to everybody!!!

Need Feedback: Custom Script

I'm working on a custom script as a logotype and would like to have you feedback - I have two versions with differing "L"s:

So, A or B? I feel pretty good with the "Hus" but I think that the "tle" still needs some working out. Additionally I'm aware of some of the Illustrator stroke issues with some jankiness that I'll attend to once I get the letter forms finalized.

Let me know if you see any other problem areas or have suggestions to improve it.
Thanks!

SIGN PAINTERS MOVIE AND BOOK!!!

Okay, so I thought this might be of interest to you all:

There is a book called Sign Painters that came out several months ago by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon. Faythe Levine was the one who made that documentary called Handmade Nation. They have also made a movie called Sign Painters as well and there will be a free screening at UCLA Fowler Museum on July 25th (for folks living in Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura County). There are screenings in other cities of the world as well.

"Practice" T-Shirt Lettering & Quillustration

Forums: 

Hey y'all,

I had the pleasure of having a piece of lettering and illustration accepted to the newly formed, designer-driven, profit sharing t-shirt company Cotton Bureau. I have two more days to achieve 3 more pre-orders, or nobody gets to sport my intricately crafted design. Would love to see this go to print and worn with pride, I'm not sure why I didn't think to post this here earlier. Here's the link: https://cottonbureau.com/products/practice

Logo Type

Hi there!

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.

A mythical approach to readablity

Forums: 

Hello!

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.

http://www.arthus.nl/pegacorn/pegacornABC.gif

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.

Heráldica Script

Forums: 

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.

Cheers!
