I'm a first year graphic design student, so I'm just starting out. Since I'm doing graphic design now, everybody suddenly wants my advice for their birthday invitations etc. Most of the time I'm able to help them, but now I've got a question I don't have an answer to.
My dad needs a font for text that contains a lot of numbers. I've spoken to him about it and showed him some fonts that are already on his computer, like Georgia which has text figures (old style/hanging numbers). He didn't like the that there's only a bold, a regular and an italic, as he needs a semi-bold as well... I am willing to pay for a good typeface with old style numbers, as I think I'll be able to use it in coming years anyway, but it shouldn't be too exclusive/expensive as I am a student.
Greater Albion Typefounders have just released the Worthing family on Myfonts.com and Fontspring (fonts.com release to follow).
Worthing aims to combine Victorian charm with modern-day requirements for legibility and clarity, and we hope, demonstrates that traditional elegance still has its place in the modern world. Meanwhile, for those who our curious about the naming of our fonts, Mr Lloyd our designer was reading Mr Wells (H. G.) “War of the Worlds” recently. No doubt some of you will remember the part that Worthing in Sussex played in that story. Worthing is offered in three styles, regular, alternate and shaded. It's ideal for Victorian and Edwardian era inspired design work, posters and signage, as well as for book covers, chapter headings and so forth.
Does anyone know what this font is called or where I can get my hands on it? They use it in the new Timberland Earthkeepers website. http://earthkeepers.timberland.com/ Looks like Rockwell but it's not. Far better. Thanks.
Doing a motion graphics piece using 18th & 19th century engravings of mythical animals, etc... Very fanciful and over the top. Need a font for some Initial caps that resembles an embellished engravers, similar to fonts used on currency, but more fanciful. Like this, only much nicer. This, I think, is rather blunt and vulgar.
I can only explain what I'm looking for as "Baroque Victorian" which I know is no help at all.
What are your favorite fonts (or EPS resources) for something like this?
no clue with this one, would appreciate some help!
many thanks in advance, tash
I need a beautiful E for a design.
iit has to be unique and powerful.
i was thinking more of a decorative e than serif or sans serif.
could you help me out?
can anyone tell me exactly what font they used? I found some similar, but nothing that is exactly like it.
Can someone please tell me the font used for the title, "Brooklyn"? Many thanks!
Can anyone help me find a typeface that would suitably replace the one used in this beuatiful 17th Century engraving of a stellar atlas by the astronomer Johannes Hevelius:
more from the collection here:
Any help will be appreciated
Can you help me in identifying the typeface in this image?
I am pretty sure many/most of you have noticed DIESEL's amazing latest viral/campaign called 'Kick-Ass'. It's for their sneakers, not as big as 'Be Stupid' but still, so good!
I'm thinking they must be using a form of Bodoni as 2nd font (for the supers under the main titles- Great for kicking asses). And the first font on the title (DIESEL Sneakers. Not Made For Running) kind of reminded me Ziggurat in the first place but it is not. Pretty Sheriff though...
Does anyone know which are these 2 fonts used in the campaign? Below are some links of prints and videos. Thanks a lot in advance!
I would like to do a facelift for this logo type and need to know which font was used. New Times Roman (unfortunately) get fairly close, but not quite there, terminal of the upper case J is different, as are the proportions of upper case O and E. I only have this very small JPG available for indetification.
Please help id this font for me
I believe that it is hand drawn, I have a feeling that it is out there or something that is very close to this.
I have the following letters
Thanks so much for looking.
Can anyone help me identify this font? It's used in an article in Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, published by Elsevier, though I'm not sure if it's used throughout Elsevier or just this article.
(Higher-quality example attached)
A client of mine really likes the logotype for OkCupid.com. Any ideas what the font is (or any similar recommendations)?
Hi Guys, saw this on Spotify today - very nice too!
I'm in the middle of a town branding project for the city of Elk Horn in Iowa. The city has the largest percentage population of Danish residents in America. It also boasts the only Danish windmill to ever leave Denmark.
Our group has only just started the ideation and conceptualizing a series of symbols and color schemes to represent the town.
We are searching for possible typeface solutions to use throughout the signage for the town.
In our research we came up with these two typefaces being used as signage in Europe. I think the team overall appreciates the large x-height and overall verticality.
If anyone can identify these typefaces or point me in the direction of any alternatives that would be great.
Any ideas on what the typeface used for headlines in The Week magazine is?
An existing font perhaps? ...or from scratch?
I'm brand new here and something of an ingenue at this whole typography game, but it's something I'm interested in and looking to learn about. To that end, I'd like some help from you.
I need to get my hands on a nice serif – a fairly traditional one preferably – with 'reading' a's and g's. This is intended for body text in a novel-style text, so shouldn't really be so markedly different in any other way from what you might normally find. A lot of nice serif fonts have suitable italics, but the Roman or book styles have the arc overhead (although I don't know what that's called).
Thanks for your time.
I was hoping someone here might be able to help me ID the typeface used on this book cover. It is what "The Proust Questionnaire" is written in. Thanks in advance for any help.
Hello Fellow Typophiles,
I was contacted by a photographer to create a custom logotype for him. He had seen an identity I did for another photographer and said that those letterforms resonated with him, and he would like something similar. Will is a very talented panoramic photographer and after perusing his personal website I decided that this logotype needed to be wide. I also wanted his logotype to work nicely with a complementary typeface so that I could write:
"WILL PEARSON PANORAMIC PHOTOGRAPHER"
all in one line, to create a panorama of sorts. [See WillPearson_LogoType_01.jpg for example ]
