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"?
Very happy to announce that Hipster Script is finally published. Hipster got a TDC 20120award and was selected by the Bienal Tipos Latinos.
Featuring more than 1800 glyphs containing ligatures, endings, etc. Hipster is available here:

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.
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.
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).
FAN SCRIPT - A NEW SUDTIPOS RELEASE
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...
Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes are trademarks of Rebeletter Studios and may be registered under certain jurisdctions.
We are proud to announce the release of Condiment, the lastest Sudtipos addition to your typographic design recipes.
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?
