Jabana & Jabana Alt & Jabana Extras — 52 fonts for coffee and more

In 2014 Jabana was released as just a single font. One year later, after some hard work Nils Thomsen rounded it up to a very useful and complex typeface system. Inspired by having a “Schorle” at Hamburgs bars. Super compressed to extended letter shapes in 5 widths and 4 weights – smooth handwritten marker curves and especially a wide range of opentype features define the large character set of Jabana.

Each letter and punctuation got three simple varieties of alternates. This gives a nice looking handwritten nature to the font. They will be randomly chosen by the contextual alternates feature or even by hand via stylistic set (ss01, ss02).

Dark Angel: A New Release from Alphabet Soup Type Founders

Forums: 


Alphabet Soup Type Founders and Michael Doret are proud to announce the Release of Dark Angel, a “blackletter/hybrid” font. This font had its genesis in a logo sketch for the Anaheim Angels baseball team—thus its name.
Type purists may be appalled by the lack of adherence to traditional forms, but the font should be seen as only “in the spirit of” blackletter, and attempting something that hasn’t been seen or done before—something that feels traditional, yet at the same time fresh and perhaps unexpected.

Portland Type Tuesday continues!

Tuesday Feb 1st is the first Tuesday of the month, so it's time for a social evening with your fellow Portland typophiles! Not all discussions have to be about fonts and typography, but it would be good if everyone was at least willing to have such discussions. :)

This is our third Portland Type Tuesday, I think. We may soon be too many for this location, but they have a great Imperial Stout on tap, so we're back again at:

Migration Brewing
2828 NE Glisan St.
Portland OR 97232

7 pm Tuesday.

I'll be the fellow with the green hat and red mad scientist glasses. Hope we see you there!

Trying to get together a few local Portland type types for the first time. Kinda short notice, but what the heck? Come out and have a drink or a snack and talk type with me.

Wide Connected Script and Angular Geometric Sans

I have two ID requests from a beer container. On the top, "Refined Pleasure," a wide (perhaps artificially extended?) connecting script with dual-stroke caps. Below, "PRIMA" set in a geometric sans with pointed bowls on the P and R. The top script I'm sure is a font, but the geometric sans could be custom. (The other typefaces on the box and bottle include Copperplate Gothic, Berthold Boulevard, Arquitectura, and Futura Condensed.) Thanks in advance!

(x) Limfjords Porter stout beer label - Compacta (modified) {Lex}

Dear Typophiles,

Can you help me identify the font used for the word LIMFJORDS·PORTER on the attached picture? The beer is my absolute favorite. The kerning on the label looks a bit odd, but the taste (of the beer, not the label) is top-notch.

Best regards,
Emil Hedevang

(x) Serif face on Alexander Keith beer poster - ITC Leawood {Mike Y}

Ken Bessie, Lex Kominek, and I had the second Calgary Typophile meet-up last night at a conveniently located pub, where we were faced with the sign below.

Much to the amusement of the other people with whom we were sharing a table, we tried, unsuccessfully, to identify this face: heck, it even stumped Lex! (No, we hadn't had that many beers either.)

Apart from the fact that the kerning leaves a fair bit to be desired (and what's with those periods?), would someone else like to take a stab at this one?

(And if you're in Calgary and want to come along to the next event, ask one of us for details.)
