poster

I know the used type ... but I cannot remember the name, is there anybody out there who can help? Thanks a lot in advance.


Five out of six ain't bad (sorry, I'm a big fan of wheat and meat), but I love this poster. By technical standards the handlettering isn't even very good (the s's are particularly egregious). But the artist had a natural eye for good composition, and rendered the letterforms with a playful energy that invites you to read them, and softens the stern austerity of the message.

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.
6. Weights.
7. Hierarchy.
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.

Thanks everyone.

Hi Guys,

This is from Michel Gondry's new film. I'm Digging the main display font. Anyone have any ideas?

Can someone name that font?


P22 Ruffcut is the newest addition to the Sherwood Collection of historical and period-based fonts by Ted Staunton. It is an antique wood type style that evokes the look and feel of type used in the design of poster-sized advertisements for circus, fairground and like events in the late 19th century. It is inspired by the memories of printing letterpress posters on an old cast-iron flatbed press where the oversized posters were usually composed directly on the bed of the press using mostly wood type as large as two feet high. The Ruffcut Set contains 2 styles, Plain and Woody for that more authentic look, in basic OpenType format. Ruffcut is optimal for a wide array of decorative uses including signage and posters.

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released two new typefaces on Myfonts.

Eccles is another of our 'Early Victorian' typefaces, a series we started with the Wolverhampton family a little while ago. It might be described as 'extreme-Tuscan' in style but has a delicacy that many other Tuscan faces seem to lack. It's ideal for giving design projects a clear period feel, particularly in design and advertising work. We also see it haveing considerable application in preparing invitations to a certain type of happy event. At the other extreme, some of our younger associates have described it as 'your latest Steampunk font'. So perhaps we'll just have to settle on it having a split personality...

Greater Albion Typefounders has just released it's latest family on Myfonts and Fontspring. Wolverhampton is a new Neo-Victorian face from Greater Albion Typefounders. It's something of an example of starting with a small idea and running with it. This family of three typefaces (Regular, Small Capitals and Capitals) was inspired by a line of lettering seen on a late 19th Century enamel advertisement made by Chromo of Wolverhampton (hence the family name). The family grew, topsy-like, from a recreation of these initial fifteen capital letterforms to the three complete typefaces offered here.

Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched the Doncaster family on Myfonts and Fontspring.

Doncaster is a bold display face which emphasises legibility and clarity, but which combines those qualities with a distinctive flair. The designs have a timeless quality, making them equally at home today or even in Victorian inspired design work. All of the faces are ideal for poster work, signage or for really eye-catching but not ostentatious headings and titles. Seven faces are offered combining upper and lower case forms with incised and embossed decoration as well as an italic form.

Here is a specimen sheet showing all seven faces:

WPA Poster Font

Hi there,

I'm doing some work for a client on WPA-esque style posters. He's provided me with Duarte for some of the other areas of the poster, but I need to find the font I've attached here as it has been used on previous posters and the client doesn't have it. I ran it through whatthefont but to no avail.

Any ideas guys? Help much appreciated.

Thanks.

Looking for three fonts from these images. From Reading (the yellow one), the font that 'AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND' is written in, plus the one used for band names (not the ones that have their own logo, obviously - ones like Deftones, Jimmy Eat World etc). From Download (the black one), the font used for 'MAVERICK_AC'.

I like making fake posters with line-up predictions, and want to make them as realistic as possible using the correct fonts and everything. Had trouble finding a good match though, I'm a bit of a noob at typography...

A poster series for the action-packed novel "The Night Angel" trilogy by Brent Weeks. The typography was heavily influenced by the characteristics of an assassin.

Graphic Designer: Herman Chaneco
Copywriter: Brent Weeks (Book Author)
Size: 24"x36"

Can anyone tell me what typeface is used for the "FLAT STOCK" part of this poster?
Thanks

Leibix, inspired by a jolly trademark of the past, is a fun family of five typefaces which transcends different eras of the past. It has elements of the 1920s in its design, but is equally at home with projects having a 1970s theme of an up to the minute modern one. Leibix is intended for eye catching cartoon captions, in posters of anywhere else a casual impact is required.

Greater Albion is offering Leibix at an introductory 40% discount on Myfonts.

Grid for folding poster

I'm working on a 15" x 21" poster than folds into a 5" x 7" card for mailing. The poster will be folded open, but the content will not necessarily be neatly contained in each 5" x 7" section — some content takes over two panels, some all three).

What is a best practice for creating a grid for such a poster?

Currently my grid divides each 5" x 7" section, with gutters that allow for room across each fold. While this ensures that small type near the fold will not cross it, the poster contains content that spans multiple columns and sections. This results in an uneven spacing of said columns (six columns appear more like three columns on one section followed by a large gutter and three more columns in another section).

The Spargo family of six typefaces has just released on Myfonts.com and on Fontspring.

Spargo is inspired by 20s and 30s American typefaces, often seen on share certificates and other securities. We thought it was time to bring a touch of transatlantic boom and ebullience to our portfolio of typefaces, not to mention a healthy dose of Roaring 20s spirit. Spargo is the result, offered in six all capitals display typefaces.

Here are speciments of the six faces...

Nice Geometric Sans

hey guys. I saw this this morning and am in love with it. Any ideas what it is?

Greater Albion has just launched Flapper, a family of four faces on Fontspring and Myfonts.com.

Flapper is family which embodies a great deal of fun and more than a little spirit of the roaring 20s. If ever a set of typefaces could dance a high kicking Charleston, these are they. Flapper is offered in regular, condensed, oblique and outline forms, and they all bring a great deal of fun and life wherever they are used. The Flapper family (yes, think of one of those dancing 20s girls with a long string of pearls...) is ideal for casual heading, bold captions, poster work and anywhere else a sense of fun is required.

Greater Albion Typefounders have just released tow new Typefaces on Fontspring and Myfonts:

Bertolessi, is a Roman face made fun, with a healthy dose of filigree curves thrown into the mix. It's an ideal compliment to our extensive Bertoni family, but can be used anywhere a bit of humour and flair is required.

Greater Albion Typefounders has just released the Spillsbury family on Myfonts.com.

Spillsbury was inspired by some examples of 1920s signwriting (principally seen on the side of some vintage vans-good thing they were in a photograph and not on the move!).

Spillsbury draws inspiration from these sources to provide a unique combination of legibility and flair, which echoes the charm of advertising and publicity material from the halcyon days of the 1920s.

A basic range of four display faces os offered - Regular, Plain (not all that plain really!), Shaded and Shadowed.

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.

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.
