serif

I just wanted to show you a new typeface I started as a little break on a different typeface I'm doing for a client.

It started with an idea on a certain flow of lines within the /a but quickly thereafter I removed the terminal and created this sort of naked serif typeface.

I like the a, b, d and r in particular (which is not to say no more adjustments will be made though) but I'm rather uncertain about the /c and and /e as they're perhaps too classical. I suppose with this typeface I essentially want to bring a few classical/chirographic aspects and think it through to a logical, modern conclusion. I feel the /o could be wider but I will have a closer look at that when doing more elaborate text samples.

Any criticism is welcome.

Hi guys,

I am looking for a serif typeface along the lines of Marlene (http://www.typonine.com/fonts/font-library/marlene/), that has a large family which includes stencil cuts. I am working on an online magazine layout and would like to implement the stencil version as a hover effect for links.

The foundry selling it should therefore be able to host the type (have a web version).

Thank you!

Since I have very limited knowledge about typography, I'm reaching out to you guys for some help. I'm currently finishing my Master's thesis and looking for a nice typeface to go with it. I'm looking for a serif, but I don't want it to be too classical. What would you recommend for the body text? And for the headers?

Hope you guys can help me out. Thanks in advance!

Hello all,

I've been studying type for several years now but haven't sat down to begin designing a full font until recently. I got my hands on Fonts & Logos by Doyald Young and have been working my way through that, and as a compliment to what I've been reading and learning I started designing a font based on lettering I found at local historic locations.

I've sketched a few of the more complex lowercase letters (to get an idea about caps height, diagonals, bowls, widths, etc) but now when I look at them as a group I feel like I'm looking at totally different fonts.

Any advice about what I'm naively missing to tie all these together? Or additional pointers? Any critique is much appreciated.

Hi everybody, this is my first post.
I will develop a Serif Display to my post Graduation final project. It will be projected for a Craft magazine and I am looking for some good typefaces that I could use as a reference for my studying.
Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

cheers,

Do you know who is the first designer which used to strip down a traditional serif typeface? I know a contemporary example: František Štorm removes the serifs of the XVII th century Jannon Roman.

Hello!

Serif fonts often have lighter strokes on one side, I recall hearing a specific term for this phenomena a while ago but I can't remember what it was. Can anyone unravel this mystery for me?

Best regards,

Hi there,

I have a client wanting to redesign a magazine, including fonts for body text as well as headers, callouts, etc. What is the best way to compile and show, on paper, what different fonts look like in print? I'm finding that some foundries have PDF samples of text, but others and MyFonts don't, so not sure what the best strategy would be. Any resources you recommend?

Thanks so much for your help.

Well established, high end, nationally distributed Fine Art magazine is undergoing a redesign asap (to be started now and completed in days maybe weeks but not months) Sorry for not just telling you my name and what magazine I am redesigning now but I am not at liberty to "publicly disclose" this info but send me an email and I will inform you of everting by email or phone (hurray for technicalities). Of course, you can just look at the art section of any Barnes and Noble newsstand or google high end Fine Art magazine if your in a country that may not have in on the newsstand and figure it out.

hello,

my magazine uses bembo for body copy, which i find a bit dated and better for book copy.

can anyone please recommend a more modern serif that works for body copy? Perhaps a little cleaner than Bembo.

I am considering paring it with Museo (headlines) throughout the magazine.

The magazine has a dated look, so just looking for something more modern with a little more weight than Bembo, I find it light, wide and antiquated.

If you know of anything great, don't be afraid to suggest what it might pair with for headlines etc...

I really appreciate any suggestions. Looking forward to some feedback.

Looking for something to represent the typeface used to annotate images in Gray's Anatomy drawings. Thought it might be Garamond but the 'g' is wrong. It ws published in 1858. Not a big choice of typefaces then. Maybe someone knows and will tell me while I search!

Apple Garamond

I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge or experience with "apple garamond". From what I have read it seems to not have been released publicly and a quality revival is no where to be found. It was something that I was looking to pursue, but didnt want to go full steam ahead, only to be abruptly stopped by a quality revival or even the existing typeface existing digitally already...

Hello Typophiles.

My name is Alvaro Franca, I'm an aspiring type designer and I've been doing some research on newspaper typefaces, their specifics, needs and whatnot and came to wonder a couple of things in regards to what they used to look like and what they look like today.

Hi Typophile,

First time posting on the forum so hopefully some of you guys can help me with this one? I am struggling to identify a typeface which has been used throughout the branding of a company I am currently redesigning.

The typeface is used predominantly in the logo, hopefully when its identified I will be able to see if its commercially available as a web font to use online:

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,
Lewis.

I’d like to introduce you to my new typeface, Theory Serif. If all goes as planned, this will be the foundation to a Serif, a Sans and a Monospace family.

A new Serif

Hello there,
So I am new around and I thought it would be quite a good idea of getting to start here by showing a tiny font project i'm on for few days (even if the idea is melting within me for a while). So I am new on the forum and on font-making ; I believed it would be an interesting way to get a better understanding of fonts thru designing it (and eventually make me a better designer... ahah...hum...).

So here is the firsts "drafts", I actually finished the small caps, but quite frankly not yet satisfied with the looks of some of them (and it does take me a damn long time for each letter). So here is it and feel free to give some opinions on that...

Hello!

Keywords: economical, legible, modern
