serif font magazine body copy?

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.

Apple Garamond

Forums: 

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...

Typeface Identification

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.

A new Serif

Forums: 

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...

HELP! Magazine Redesign: Modern Typeface Combination Needed

Hello!

I'm a newbie in a need of some typo advice from experts as I have become overwhelmed by browsing the web ...

I'm a student and currently redesigning a medical magazine run by a non-profit student organization.

I'm looking for a sans serif for headings (it will also appear on posters) and a serif for long texts (2 columns).
Keywords: economical, legible, modern

How can I manage this weird typographic palette?

Forums: 

Hello everybody,

I've been reading a lot about typefaces and how different kinds can be combined in order to create layers of meaning. Type foundries usually suggest pairings for their own fonts, most notably Hoefler & Frere Jones and Font Bureau. I am looking to create an unusual mix of moods for a personal branding project:

- Hearty, friendly
- Weird, quirky
- Contemplative, dramatic

You can think of this mix as the equivalent of a Wes Anderson, Sylvain Chomet, or even a Spike Jonze film. Sort of like what film critic Peter Rainer writes about Spike Jonze's film, Being John Malkovich:
“It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.”

In DIRE need of Identifying two fonts

I am in dire need of identifying the two fonts on the image. Both the Name Above, and the word Punkintown. The former designer was unable to provide the font names. The upper looks similar to ITC Bradley Hand, just not the exact font. The "K" in Punkintown seems almost manually created such as via Photoshop, but just not figuring it out. Help! Thank you!
