Hi guys, I'm working on this poster showcasing some of the characteristic typefaces of Amsterdam and would really appreciate some feedback on the design so far. It's not finished yet, I'm considering changing some of the letters but it would be nice to have some opinions regarding the overall look of it so far. Thanks!

Not much more to say except that I need your help. I've already tried whatthefont.com and identifont.com
New to the forums here, been browsing and using this site for years but never posted. I'm after some advice for what fonts to use for my conference poster.
OK I'm presenting an A0 poster at an antarctic research conference and am getting tired of my usual Caslon/Helvetica-Neue combo and wanted to change things up a bit.
Obviously its a little difficult to describe whet I have in mind. Its a science poster, thinking cooler colors, lots of white as it will have a few hairline diagrams on it.
Hey, working on some infographics/graphic design projects, and came across this (in the attachments) while doing some creative research.
I was just wondering if anyone could name the font used for both the main titles, and the "Cloud City" part in the "Bespin" poster. Thanks!

I've seen this type many times in my youth on TV station promos and now here's a hard copy I found on this Robert Crumb poster. I went through thousands of online fonts (which isn't a chore, exactly) and uploaded it to the various automated type ID sites but am still without clue. I've also seen it a lighter variant.
Thanks in advance. You guys are great.
Typographic sins are those little things novice designers, students and Mr. and Mrs. Desktop Publisher always do with type. You know, putting 2 spaces between sentences, using dumb quotes instead of smart quotes, etc. Well, in an effort to educate the public (or at least entertain those of us who know better), I have designed a poster with 34 typographic sins that I hope people don't commit. Some, like those mentioned above are obvious, others are a little more obscure. I letterpressed my poster at Rowley Press and you can purchase them on my web site: jimgodfreydesign.com.
From the designer:
Sinder began life as a custom block font that was begging to be distressed. Of course it was only an experiment, not to be taken seriously, until a customer needed a face of just about these proportions to give his "paranormal investigation" hobby an appropriately scary image. It was out of necessity, then, that I finished the entire font. It never pays to be caught off-guard at a critical point in a layout.
Does anyone have any idea of what might be the main typeface used in these beautiful Leftloft's posters for Teatro del Scienza?
This "T" looks different! Maybe a unicase typeface?
Talented brazilian designer Marina Chaccur designed this beautiful poster featuring Bree, the successful award-winning typeface published in 2008 by TypeTogether.

Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
Can anyone tell me what typeface is used in Paula Scher's the Diva is Dismissed poster for the public theater?
I know she used old wood type so if that's the case is there a digital equivalent I could use?
I am quite hoping to identify the font from the 1961 poster for "The Frightened City." I am guessing the stencil variety was custom and is not available, however, I would be perfectly content knowing the basic font character set used here or any other information about these characters. I've been searching for a few years for this font, but with no luck. Proxima Nova condensed Black is somewhat close, but not exactly it. The Gs, Cs, and Rs are not right. Thanks much in advance!!
Anyone know this font?
the font i want to know is the 9 picture with the phrase "B Hobom Cbete".
Can anyone tell me what is this font?
The font i want to know is what is at the bottom of the poster. A little compressed. "WEAPONS OF MASS CREATION".
Does anyone know how you call these "poster clips"?
and does anyone know where I can buy them?
I've tried to google poster clips but I don't get any relevant results or any store that sells them
Thanks for all your help!
