I'm currently designing a photography magazine geared towards women. I'm trying to finalize the typeface I'll use for the body copy and I'm looking for some advice before I commit to anything. Right now I have the copy set in Cochin 8.5pt. I'm set on using a serif and I love the look of this, but I'm a little concerned with the readability. I'm not averse to spending some money on a quality font that can be used throughout the magazine, I like the look of Mercury and even Sentinel (H&FJ), but wanted to get some opinions before I purchase anything.
As always, thanks for the help!
I'm working on the logo & wordmark for a company that will be based online (it's a music service) and aimed at Churches, primarily older and smaller high-churches, like Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Lutheran, etc.
Currently I'm using Proxima Nova or Gotham in the mockups (anyone want to weigh in on why I should pick one over the other?), set in all-caps, but I'd like to see something that looks a tiny bit more traditional. I'm thinking some slight serifs or something. Normally I'd try to solve this with a slab serif like Adele or PMN Caecilia, but it ends up looking too tough, and most serifs just look too boring to be used for an online music service.
Does anyone have any idea what this font is? I made the graphic right before my hard disk crashed, so I do know that it is a font, I just don't know which one. Any ideas?
This font seems to be a cross between Poetica Roman and Durrow Bold. I can't find it anywhere.
Would you be able to deduce the family utilised in the signage creation for this fine building? I've exhasted my resources to no avail.
PS sorry about the picture quality - the building is undergoing maintenance work and this is the closest I could get to the signage!
I am trying to match this "Dorothy Lynch" font. I have a folder of spur serif fonts but nothing seems to match this. The "C" should be a clue but I don't recognize it. Thanks.
One of the designers I follow on twitter posted this a while ago, can't remember who or I would ask them. I believe it is a mockup for Royal Mail slip that they leave when they "deliver" your parcel but you were out.
It looks similar to Archer and ITC American Typewriter, but it's neither of those.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance.

Anyone know what typeface this is or is closest to?
I always like working on mixing type, it might be frustrating, in the end you always find something nice. However, this time around, it seems really hard. I am looking for a serif typeface that fits Knockout's JuniorFlyWeight, it shouldn't be as compressed as Knockout itself but a little more condensed than your normal Garamond or Chronicle. I am working on an editorial design and I'm trying to achieve a little bit more elegance with the fonts' thin and high letterforms.
Looking forward to your recommendations and thank you in advance!
I am choosing between R and K. Which one is more appropriate to the design?
I recently started to create a serif with the "e" as the very first letter
and fell in love with the break in the upper bow.
This became the main idea of the type.
Starting up with the lower cases (still not all finished) it's all a big
building site but I think it's worth it.
I would really appreciate critics on my first steps on copy types
and with a little help from you, I would like to push it further!
Can't wait for your input,
I need to identify the font of the product name (i.e. Cranberry extract) of this packages (designed by Turner Duckworth).

Can anybody help me with the name of this font?
I'm asked to reproduce the logo but (as you can imagine) don't want to start vectordrawing it from scratch.
Hey type geeks. :-) I'm looking for a new font for a book cover. It's for the author, Andy Andrews. If you look at the image below, notice the "the" in the title. I'm looking for something with similar flare, if you will. Appreciate any help. Thanks!!
Does anyone know this type face?
It has very curious lc 'n' and 'a'.
Mad trying to ID this face...
I'm having a heck of a time trying to identify this font. It kinda looks like Museo but it's not. The serif on the top of the capital A is missing in Museo. Anybody know what it is?
I bet this question has been asked a million times: basically, is there anything out there other than Times New Roman and Arial for the most common cross-platform fonts (for print)?
Any idea what this serif face might be? It's from NB:Studio's identity of http://www.surfaceview.co.uk/
This is a very quick and rough (very rough) draft of my typeface. I was just looking for feedback and everyones first impressions keep in mind this is my first typeface and I am relatively new to the process.
I have currently only done the lowercase just because I'm not 100% sure what direction I should be going in. I was going for an italic serif loosely based off of Bodoni and I tried to go with the Old style/ Transitional style.
First impression, critique, technical aspects any comment will be helpful thank you.
I'm really having trouble with c/e/f/y/k/s/ but of course I will take any advice on all or any of the letters.
I'm new to the website and I've found all the information here very helpful. For my senior project I chose to design a typeface from scratch, and there are some technical issues that I am having. I am making an italic serif typeface in the old style/ transitional style. I've taken some inspiration from Giambattista Bodoni's Bodoni typeface, and it will be used for displays, pull quotes, and headers.
I was just wondering if anyone can name for me a typeface with bracketed serifs and even strokes (no thin/thicks)?
I can't seem to think of, or find any with these qualities, but there MUST be some (unless it breaks some kind of rule for non-slab-serif serif fonts to NOT have thick/thin strokes?)
AND (if anyone knows) - is there a SERIF typeface based on Gill Sans that is not Perpetua? (Again, perhaps one without the humanist strokes?)
Hope someone can help!
Thanks very much,
