I'm a novice and would love some feedback


Hello all,

I'm new here and I'm also new to type design. Having said that, I've been drawing type since I was a child and eventually grew up a little and became a graphic designer along the way. My hobby is now taking a serious turn as it's about time I tried to share and even sell my typeface designs. My first attempt was a hand drawn, all caps, neoclassical serif face that I named 'Carrig'. Carrig being the Irish word for 'rock' (I'm based in Ireland) and the typeface itself was strongly influenced by classic letterforms carved into stone and weathered by time.

So, now I am developing Carrig into a full family and here, with the Roman weight, I have drawn a full set of lowercase characters to suit the style of their uppercase parents.

What typefaces scream "Shakespeare!" to you?

Whether it be classical, contemporary, or modern typographic forms, what typefaces scream "Shakespeare!" to you?

Also, can you folks identify original typefaces that are used in his publications?

Many thanks in advance. Hope you all had a great and filling Thanksgiving!

Please help - looking for a good typeface/font match

I'm new to Typophile, so please forgive me (and re-direct me if you know otherwise) if this has been posted in the wrong forum topic!

I've recently created a logo design for a bespoke fashion brand using the typeface Lulo Clean One Bold (see: https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/yellow-design/lulo-clean/) and I'm trying to put together the rest of the brand identity.

Font ID - I Won't Insult You by Butchering a Description


I'd love to identify the font used in this wine label to write "ninety." There may not be much to go on here, but I figured maybe the experts would know.

Or could you recommend something similar? I love the width of the 'n' and the tail of the 'y'...actually I love all five letters there.

Gangster Squad Fonts. Font Identification Help.

Hello everyone. First time posting on this forum and was wondering if i could get some help. I tried doing a search but have had no luck in finding these fonts.

I was wondering if anyone knows of what both of these fonts are? Both the cursive and typeface. Or anything similar.

Sorry for the terrible pictures. It looks better zoomed out lol.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks :)


1920's hardbound book cover

I've looked everywhere for this, online, old type specimen books and I simply can't recognize it.

A letterpress printer friend of mine suggested it could be a customisation on Windsor or Hallamshire Old Style, but I think it maybe quite a big customisation for a book binder.

The book was published in London, around 1924.

Any help on this is much appreciated,

WSJ Magazine Headline Font

I am new to this forum and hope you can help me: I am looking for the font that the Wall Street Journal Magazine uses for headlines and Sub-headlines. I already found out that they use Phaistos for some headlines and Verlag for body text. But I could never find the name of the third font they use. Here is a photo of a title page that uses it:

I also attach a rates/specs list that can be downloaded at their Media site.

Note that it is the WSJ-Magazine, not the Journal itself.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Old Spice Classic

I'm 99% sure the "Classic" is some kind of Arial, right now I'm using Arial with the Bold adjustment by Photoshop and it appears to match.

The Old Spice on its own though I can't seem to find in my collection... I could totally use some help. It's for my birthday cake this weekend.

Thanks so much!
