I'm looking for an alternative to the fantastic Knockout by Hoefler & Frere-Jones...
I'm trying to recreate a vintage concert poster, which features many weights and widths of classic gothic sans serifs, and am hoping to find something with a large selection of widths and weights like Knockout...
I love Knockout, just trying to see if I can find something more unique...
i'm looking to find the blackletter font attached. It appears in Dan x Solo's book 'gothic and old english alphabets' from 1984. Known as monmouth back then, but the blackletter font now also known as monmouth is completely different so the one I want is difficult to search for... any idea if this font was renamed at some point? Similar fonts accepted...
An older font of mine called Signer and some pictures during its design process.
I recently picked up a small booklet of "Intertype Gothics" that shows two sizes (36 pt. and 42 pt.) of a face called "Spike Gothic."
Can anyone give me more information about it? I've never seen it before and would like to know more about it. Any digital versions? A quick Google search didn't turn up anything.
This is my new typeface Turbine. It will be part of the fontfont family soon but I think it is still a lot of work to do. The idea is quite simple: A squarish grotesk with open apertures. I would be very happy to get some comments and suggestions.
HWT Gothic Round is the newest release from the Hamilton Wood Type Foundry. Gothic Round was first introduced as wood type by the George Nesbitt Co. in 1838. The font is a softened variation of a standard heavy Gothic typeface. The style evokes a much more recent history of the 1960s and 70s and can be seen in such places as donut shops and on children's toys as well as inspiration for such fonts as VAG Rounded.
Gothic Round has not previously been available as a digital font until now. The font was digitized by Miguel Sousa from a wide variety of historical sources, including visits to the Cary Collection at RIT (Rochester, NY), WNY Book Arts Center (Buffalo, NY) and the Hamilton Wood Type Museum (Two Rivers, WI). The result is a very solid and contemporary font with a 175 year history.
Looking to find something similar to this sixties film poster font.
I love the squared off internals on the 'O's
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
This font was posted on a old thread from way back in 2011 I cant work out what it is and there is no link to the font.
Its a really basic looking old English gothic font of some sort
Any help would be much appreciated
The text is on a curve... but it should be good enough to identify. If you cannot suggest an exact match then something very similar would be very much appreciated. I'm not a font expert... but it looks like an italic rounded blackletter font with very extended and curvy serifs.
This comes from the National Bohemian Beer label.
See this link for a high resolution photo that shows the font as used on the top of the label.
I am looking for the closest variant of this font:
I am making a cash register application and I need to find the closest match for this font. Closest I was to this font was MS Gothic or perhaps this one: http://www.whatfontis.com/Hypermarket-Cond-Light-green-type.font?text=JO...
but its noot good enough.
Maybe there is a possibility it isnt even a real font and its the printer internal font, or whatever you call it?
I greatly appreciate any help,
Thank You in advance
I have a client looking to have us replicate this type for a business card, and I have a feeling I am not going to be able to find it. Since it is effected and warped so much, I can't use any typical font identity applications. After browsing through similar font types for over an hour, I can't find anything that is similar enough to use or manipulate. Any help with this would be awesome, but I may just be stuck with using their pixelated art, or attempting to redraw in illustrator...
Type purists may be appalled by the lack of adherence to traditional forms, but the font should be seen as only “in the spirit of” blackletter, and attempting something that hasn’t been seen or done before—something that feels traditional, yet at the same time fresh and perhaps unexpected.
Specifically, the font on top that reads "A New Chapter." I've tried using identifont and whatthefont but neither came up with an option that was even close. I'm beginning to think the original designer of the logo adjusted an existing font in Illustrator using outlines, but i'm hoping this isn't so.
It looks like it could be Century Gothic, or some other gothic, yet the capital "E" is really different.
I'm redesigning this logo for a client and they want me to use the same font, yet they don't remember what it is, and I can't find it. :)
Thank you so much,
The Unit Gothic series was released by Hamilton Manufacturing Co. in 1907. This sans serif family features one of the first multi width/weight type 'systems', anticipating the Univers font system by 50 years. This set of 7 fonts was designed to aid in press room efficiency and its incremental variation in widths gave poster printers unprecedented flexibility in fitting copy while using consistently harmonious fonts.
This HWT release is the first ever digital version of these fonts. Each font contains 600 glyphs including Greek and Cyrillic character sets as well as alternate characters which are based on the actual special character production patterns from the Hamilton Wood Type Museum collection.
I was developing this blackletter display typeface. Struggling with a complex drawing for the first time.
Need some feedback.
I'm looking to identify both of the fonts used on these cards. One is a script, the other is Gothic. I realize that these might be hand calligraphy, but if anyone could point me to reasonable look-a-like fonts, I'd be thriled!
Please help me identify this modern gothic calligraphic font (found in the comic book "Lillim"). It looks like I've seen it before many a time but I cannot remember its name. I guess it must be popular if it's used in a recent comic book. This is the sample compiled of several screenshots ( Sorry for the small size, I tried to enlarge the pictures but the font is distorted then)
I need some help identifying this sans-serif font.
I once knew the name to this font, something with "Gothic" at the end of the name ;-) … and no, it's not Trade Gothic Gothic Extended.
– I remember that this is a font that does not feature any lowercase letters, only uppercase.
– the watch-manufacturers from "wempe" are using an adapted version of this font: http://www.wempe.de/ – the problem is, they call it "wempe gothic", so this doesnt solve the problem.
Thanks a lot for the help you guys!
I'm trying to identify this Gothic font.
It was found in Tschichold's Master Typographer.
Thanks very much
Hello i'm trying to find which is exactly the Gothic Condensed font?
as i'm looking out in web shop catalogs and i can't find it with that name, originally one of the wood type family fonts.
