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.

hi everybody,
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?

Thanks! xxx


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:

Any idea who did it? I'm unsure who to credit.

Hello everyone!
The "Almighty" Seb Lester updated his website with brand new lettering posters.

Here you can read an interview from ILT blog

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.

Hello everyone, I just want to share a new release Piel Script.

After several years of receiving tattoo requests and images of them using my fonts, I decided to design and publish a tattoo-style typeface. You can see the specimen here. I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed designing it.

If you want to see more images in use or to license the font or just to read more about it.

I've never done anything like this before, but I want to learn as much as I can from this little project. I'm trying to come up with a nice handwritten-script logo for myself. I may end up using it, but I'm more interested in learning and practice at this point.

I'm anxious to hear your thoughts! I want to improve construction, flow, and consistency if possible (and I'm sure it is).



We are proud to announce the release of our new typeface Fan Script


A typeface basically focus in sports but with a strong contemporary attitute
and ready to be used in any kind of projects.

We have designed a PDF specimen to show some of the possibilities of the font.

Over a year ago I started thinking of new font names, er...a theme of different font names for a different family of different styles :P At last, Beefcakes is in the final stages and is scheduled for release on August 20th, w00t! It is the first of the "Cakes" series, a collection of display fonts inspired by various brush lettering styles. The series will include Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes, and as each typeface is unique (not to mention time-consuming to draw!) they will be released as they're finished...

We are proud to announce the release of Condiment, the lastest Sudtipos addition to your typographic design recipes.

About Condiment.
Condiment adds flavor to your design. The new font by Koziupa and Paul’s is prepared of powdered soft shapes mixed with brush-drawn letters and tasty alternates conveniently tucked into the OpenType programming (for those programs that support such functionality.) The font includes many alternates and support for Latin-based languages (Including Central European, Baltic, Turkish and Welsh).

Caridade is a bold and powerful script face. It draws some inspiration from heavy brush drawn vintage hand lettering but its heavy weight is much thicker with plenty of impact and more contemporary letterforms. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Heavy weight to the graceful Thin.

Caridade can get the job done for many unique design tasks.

Looking to match (or come VERY close) this font. Lettering is in vinyl on a boat, done about 3 years ago and unfortunately this is the only image I have. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

With all the coverage of Lebron on tv lately there have been a ton of shots outside Madison Square Garden. All of the reporters seem to be in the same place and I couldn't help but notice the lettering on the awning behind them (pictured).

At first glance I thought this to be ITC Blair or Sackers Gothic Heavy but the G doesn't match up. Anybody have any idea whether this is actually a typeface or just a modification of one of the others?


Hello, this is my first post here.
I would like to have some critique about my tumblr Epic Type. This is personal training for lettering, type drawing and typographic composition, that is why I need your feedback. I use Inkscape to make this compositions.
As you can understand, my goal is not to make font families but to create font specimens. Because I'm not ready yet to draw a entire typeface, I made this blog as a training place.
Please tell me what do you think about it.

Hi everybody,
I'm a student of master in graphic design and I'm building a new typeface. It's a remake of a hand lettering. The original draw was made by a Oporto's seller.

Here is http://typophile.com/files/hamburg.jpg

I'm showing here for ask your contribution and opinion. I have many doubts about how I can adapt the original design for new caracters. Can anyone help me?
Please, say what do you think about. Sugestions and critics are welcome.

Info about lettering

Hello, my name is Aleix and I'm a spanish graphic design student. This is my first post, so be nice!! hehe

My typography teacher wants us to do a type catalog about any typography subject. I chosed lettering and I divide it this way:

  • [manual lettering] before computer age (I know a spanish letterer called Ricardo Russelot but I can't find any info, I guess I'll just contact him)
  • [computer age] before open type (I don't know any authors here... could be some emigre's fonts?)
  • [computer age] after open type (underware, sudtipos, house industries?)

Hello all,

I'm very pleased to say that I have produced a new art print.

The print is called 'Blazing' and is available exclusively from Pictures on Walls.
POW is a big gallery selling the work of some extremely talented and established artists including Banksy and Antony Micallef, so I think it's a very positive development.

It's an ambigram, which means you can read it both ways up. Details here:


LETRA is a creative approach to the Typography world.

After have noticed the gap on this discipline in the city of Madrid (Spain), the Mediodía Chica association got in touch with designers and illustrators who came from different perspectives on this interesting world and offered them to deliver a series of workshops that show their personal approach to typographic creation. Subcoolture give one of these workshops with names like Stereoplastika, Pablo Abad, Luís B and La Galga. The appointment will be a weekend once a month since March to July.
