New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
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
Komoda is a display, sans serif typeface suitable for headlines, editorial and poster design. This font is free for personal and commercial use.
After seeing this poster I really wanted to get an original for in my living room. Since it will cost me around 15oo dollars(!) I decided to make my own. I drove the guys in the studio mad because no one could identify it (they are no true typophiles like you guys)!
Can anyone identify this font for me?
HWT Slab features two styles-Antique and Columbian. These two extra bold fonts are classic slab serif wood type styles with one detail of difference. Columbian is an extra bold Clarendon wood type that was manufactured by many of the wood type manufacturers in the late 19th century. "Clarendons" feature bracketed or rounded serif joins whereas "Antique" was a class of typefaces that features squared off slab serifs. Some type designs have only minor differences from others. The Columbian design is essentially identical to Wm. Page & Co.'s "Antique no. 4", with the difference being the bracketed serifs.
Any idea what the headline typeface is on this poster?
Hey, I'm designing a poster for this battlestar galactica con, and am working with the "logo" on the old poster they gave me, which they do not know or have the typefaces for. Could someone tell me what the typeface on the bottom is? The one that says Houston May 23 - 26?
Hallo! I'd really appreciate any help in identifying the font on this poster. Thanks!
I feel like this should be easy but I couldn't find it :/
Can anybody help me to find this font ?
Thanks in advance !
I would like to know what specific typefaces were used on cigarette advertising posters back in the 1950's and 1960's.
I'm aware of particular styles from those decades but cannot pinpoint too many exact typefaces used.
I hope you can help me identifying this awesome font
Trying to identify the font on the Bonnie and Clyde poster from 1967. Any thoughts?
Does anybody know the font used on this theatre review sign attached?
Hi guys, can someone help ID this font? Or something very similar for a project?
I understand the split is probably achieved after the type is created, that's fine.
Thanks in advance!
I'm currently working on an event poster for a Fashion Show that will feature graphics that have an almost watercolor feel to them. However, I'm having trouble finding a font that's really a perfect feel to accompany it.
The image is very soft, floral and spring, but I do want a more modern feeling font to counterbalance this and ensure the poster doesn't run too old.
Does anyone have any ideas about fonts that would interact well with watercolor images that aren't script?
So I'm doing this poster and don't want to hassle with finding the perfect wood type, but I want something with a little more character that's available in digital. I'm currently using Grotzec X-Narrow Bold with some mods, but I'm not set on it. Hoping to get some other suggestions to very condensed grotesques that look a little more like wood type with interesting idiosyncrasies.
Thanks for the help,
Hi, hoping you might help identify this typeface...? Thanks in advance for any leads...

A new typeface in progress, I'd appreciate your feedback! :)
I know the used type ... but I cannot remember the name, is there anybody out there who can help? Thanks a lot in advance.
Hey everyone, I'm new to this awesome forum. I was wondering if I could get some of you experts in typography to help give some input on my poster series. I'm creating posters that deal with typography and some basic tips for beginners. Right now I have 8 posters and will maybe make a ninth if I need it. I was hoping that everyone could give me some input on the topics I chose to write about.
1. Choose the right typeface for the job.
2. Serif or Sans Serif?
3. Kern correctly.
4. Use two fonts on average in a design.
5. The grid.
8. Use fonts that have complete sets of glyphs.
So those were the topics I chose to put. I'm going for a real minimalist poster and I already have some examples if you would want to see them.
