New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Have been having trouble trying to identify this font. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. I guess it is retro and italic.
for a font design project i am looking for samples and resources of old armenian typewriter character sets (or scans of documents and texts that were written with said machines) that would help me work on a corresponding design or serve as a head start. i have begun with olivetti 32 as the latin basis, and have completed cyrillic so far.
if anybody could point me to such resources or links, i would greatly appreciate it.
thanks a lot.
I just want to know so I can find it and buy it.
So, if I can identify this font that would be great, but I'm guessing that it's a custom job, so if I can find something similar, or even samples of similar stuff that isn't font based, or EVEN just somewhere to start looking for inspiration so I can start from scratch myself, that would be awesome.
The main thing I want to replicate for a logo job I'm working on is a fun retro script, that doesn't look like it's trying really hard to be retro. The thing I like most about the Grill'd logotype is that the variation in width across the typeface is very subtle, and not overly calligraphic.
Their website is http://www.grilld.com.au/ if anyone wants to look deeper into it. Any pointers leading in any direction would be much appreciated!
This is a font ive been working, is inspired by the amazing "Mostra" from Mark Simonson. I wanted a font with a old feel to use on my vintage artworks and graphics, it started as a vector file that i use, but them i keep adding more characters and turned it into a real font. I would like to know the opinion of the people here about this font. Thanks.
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.
Can anyone suggest what typefaces were used on these posters please? should i try house industries? wanting to use a similar typeface/typefaces.
need help identifying this font...i have found similar, but not exact..any font enthusiasts have a clue to what this font could be..need it to complete a project..
thanks in advance!!
I'd like to find at least a lookalike of this font.
I have been having some difficulty trying to identify these two fonts that I saw on two different Design Studio´s websites. Can anyone please help me ID them? Also if possible, maybe you can recommend some fonts that fit into this style Serif fonts. Images are attached.
Thank-you in advanced
Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.
Remember those 1970s science fiction dramas which had such charming 'futuristic' sets and backdrops? Remember the intriguing 'future' lettering and signage the set designers would devise-often coupled with interesting 'futuristic' spellings? Movella, Greater Albion's latest release, is something of a new departure for us and is a family of three typefaces inspired by that design ethos. The three faces- regular, italic and the 3d solid form - are all capitals faces which combine a feeling of 'retro-futuristic' design with easy legibility.
Movella can now be found on Myfonts and Fontspring. Here'a sample of it in action:
Over a year ago I started thinking of new font names, er...a theme of different font names for a different family of different styles :P At last, Beefcakes is in the final stages and is scheduled for release on August 20th, w00t! It is the first of the "Cakes" series, a collection of display fonts inspired by various brush lettering styles. The series will include Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes, and as each typeface is unique (not to mention time-consuming to draw!) they will be released as they're finished...
Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes are trademarks of Rebeletter Studios and may be registered under certain jurisdctions.
I'm hoping you can help. A collegue of mine has been trying to find this font for quite some time. Google research seems to have turned up very little, but maybe some of you typophiles might know.
It's from the Famous Five TV show screened during the 70's, hopefully this image will help with identification.
Just for clarification, it's the "Famous Five" text rather than Enid's singnature :)
Thanks in Advance,
Here's a tough one (the display face).
I've seen this one before but not sure what it is- Also, is there a condensed version? if not can anyone suggest a similar-style condensed slab?
im looking for a font similar to these blocky, 50s / 60s era retro fonts.
does not need to be an exact match... just something in the ballpark.
I'm in desperate need of this font for my wedding invitations. I spotted this font in an invitation suite by Mae Mae Paperie and now I have to have it!
Thanks in advance
Maybe I'm just using the wrong keywords, but I'm finding this surprisingly hard to find on Google. I'm hoping the Typophile think-tank can help point me in the right direction. :-)
We're rebranding a company that was founded in the early 19th century (yes, they're *that* old) in the United States, and we're trying to find authentic typefaces from the era, or modern reinterpretations that offer a comparable effect.
I don't know what the early 19th-century designers used, whether they were American typefaces or imported, but whatever was relatively common at the time for promotional materials, we're hoping to emulate as closely as reasonably possible.
Take a look at this retro-style primer for the budding typographer (shame about the name): [http://www.behance.net/Gallery/Hyperactivitypography-from-A-to-Z/497306]
Anyone know the font used for "THE" "AND" and "DAP-KINGS". Also any clues to the type for "SHARON JONES" would be nice as well. Thanks.
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:
I know I have come across each of these faces many times but I can't put my finger on what they are or where I saw them. Any help? It would be much appreciated.
This is a sample from the Solari split-flap "Train Information" board at Amtrak's PHL 30th St. Station. I suspect the typeface on the flaps is a custom job (presented as monospaced on single-character flaps, but kerned on longer place-name flaps), but I'm looking for something with a similar feel. So far the best I've got is Whitney Condensed Book or Medium; which will work fine, but I still wanted to see if there were any other opinions.
