Mangerica & Genica

Forums: 

Hi Guys,

Just want to share my latest releases.

Mangerica

A sans serif, fresh and summery, tried to mix different influences (humanistic, script, geometric) into a consistent look

Looking for serious typeface that evokes happiness as well

Forums: 

As usual, a client that just says feelings and nothing more concrete than what I am looking for.

For a food chain, family-oriented / "for the crowd" kind of demographic, and I guess it will be in a certain shade of red (like ketchup.) Its commercial advertisments are usually depicting joy when being inside the establishment or patronizing their merchandise.

Can anyone suggest? I am more leaning towards san serif typefaces since it is a tagline of sorts (can't say the tagline really, but something that in service with joy.)

Any help, guide and/or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Novo Typo - Caren

Forums: 

Novo Typo recently designed the corporate identity of the largest women-organisation in The Netherlands; Vrouwen van Nu. An important part of the design is the custom-made typeface 'Caren', a font which we created especially for 'Vrouwen van Nu'.

Caren is a remarkable and playful font, which gives the organization a fresh and modern look and feel. The typeface is a happy mixture between uni-, upper-, and lowercase principals. It is an invitation for all designers and non-designers to play around with text and design.

my first font - named 'happy pebble' - the lower case

Forums: 

Over the past couple of years I've become really interested in fonts. I'm a maths teacher by day and amateur designer and now amateur typographer by night (and by weekend and school holiday). I have designed a font before, but I made every rookie mistake possible.

So then I bought this very helpful book titled 'Lettering & Type: Creating Letters and Designing Typefaces' by Bruce Willen and Nolen Strals which I am thoroughly enjoying and from which I am learning a lot. I also learn a lot from typophile.com and from just observing the world around me - that's one thing I love about type, it's everywhere.

My first font is called 'happy pebble'. The look is based on this idea I got for the lower case 'a'. In my mind it looked a bit like a sculpted pebble you might find on the beach. I've only yet completed the lower case characters and the project still hasn't left Illustrator.
