Pollen by Eduardo Berliner

This typeface finds a perfect balance between technical excellence, careful design of letter forms for extended reading, and a measured dose of charm and personality. Its informal feel allows for successfully typesetting a wide range of applications, from magazines and fiction books to advertising and websites.

Matching English and Japanese Typefaces

Forums: 

I'm currently working on a project at university, trying to create a typeface in both English and Japanese that work with each other seamlessly. What Im curious to find out is;

- Your thoughts on the idea
- Any suggestions or recomendations
- Any really good or even really bad examples of these two languages at play.

Thanks for your help.

Font that suggests "book" but for logotype

Forums: 

Hi,
I'm trying to settle on fonts for a logotype that is a compound word (want to distinguish
the 2 parts of the word).

Leaning towards a serif/sans mix but trick is finding a combo that has very similar x-height and shape, and lasting power for a logo.

There are 2 sets of double "Os." This is where I'm stuck, to go with very round or very not round.
Also a lowercase "g" which is probably my favorite letter in double storey form.

Overall look should be friendly, approachable.

I'm leaning towards Minion combined with either Syntax, Meta, Profile or Whitney (the last of which
I don't own and will have to buy).

Any opinions?

Thanks!

Mish-Mosh Type

Happy Sunday typophile board!

/edit: Sorry everyone, realized the name was in the CENTER of the image. Too many design finals have fried my brain.

But if anyone knows where the lower case 't' came from in the middle

-or- the foundry that produced 'Fadeaway' typeface I would be much obliged

high contrast serif fonts

hey all,

last days i always came across high contrast serif fonts.
spezial in the field of fashion and magazines.

is there any category name for those fonts or does anyone know where there came from or what background they have?

even a few names from similary ones would help!!!!!

http://industriemagazine.com
http://www.saturday-group.com
i am sure the font from saturday for industrie magazine is custom made but there are so many out there right now there must be some mainstream version :)

i am not looking for slabserif or egyptienne.
and i am aware that bodoni does have a good contrast in the line width :)

thanks so much!

Portello and Paget

Forums: 

Greater Albion have just released two new families on Myfonts and Fontspring.

Portello is a display family in the tradition of Tuscan advertising and display faces. It's a family of three 'all capital' faces. A perpendicular regular form is offered, along with an italic form (a true italic - with purpose designed glyphs-NOT merely an oblique) and a basic form for small text - which dispenses with the family’s characteristic outlined look. It offers the spirit of the Victorian era with ready and distinctive legibility. It's ideal for poster work, especially at large sizes, and for signage with a period flair.
