New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
So I've just redesigned a publication of ours where I work and opted to use Helvetica for the body text as it looks so much smoother and, in my opinion, much more contemporary than their current use of Adobe Garamond Pro.
However, I was approached today by my superior who told me that his wife (whom is a copy editor) "had a lot of issues with using Helvetica and not a serif font for print."
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'm having trouble identifying this sans-serif. It's a large attachment, but any of the typefaces in the navy color. Thank you for the help!
First of all, hello from a newbie who has lurked a bit without daring to join any conversation until now.
And second, allow me to introduce my very first font. Any non ego crushing criticism/suggestion/etc will be welcome. Thanks!
As I mentioned in the thread for Workplace Sans, at some point I tried experimenting with a variant design that didn't look so stiff and homely. The alternate design was called "Workplace Gothic", and aimed for more of a grotesque style. A few months ago I dusted it off and started trying to rework it into something fit for the life of day.
Like Workplace Sans (with which it shares most of its basic proportions), Workplace Gothic is intended mainly for user interface text in computer software. It's not hinted beyond TypeTool's autohinting; I expect it'll typically be anti-aliased where used.
And some images for the link-shy or lazy:
I was trying to figure out what the "Alex" and "Celebrate" font is as well as the "SANDERS" and "University of South Florida". Also looks like the "6:00 PM" is also different. Thanks to all those that help me with this!
This font is from a series of four teaser posters for the Green Lantern movie (2011), designed by Concept Arts.
Is it just a customised version of "MVB Sweet Square"? The I, E, & K seem quite different. I've found a bunch of similar fonts ("Aerotype Durandal Flat", "Piranha" by Nathan Caldecott, "Identikal Rally", "Identikal Rebirth", "FF Aircraft"), but no exact matches.
Also, how would one classify this font? A "chamfered angular square sans-serif"?
*** Bonus points if anyone can confirm whether the "2011" on the poster is even in the same font? ***
Hi! Would like to seek help in identifying the font in the attached image. Looks like modified Futura (TEE) Bold to me.
I think the R gives it away, but I am having doubts with the S.
Thanks in advance!
I'm in a diploma in writing and publishing and am taking a class on letterpress printing. One of our assignments was to clean and identify some type cases. These are two type samples that I can't identify. I've already tried what the font and have looked through a lot of books and have come up with nothing. Similar types will not work in this case as I need to know the exact name of the type. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
just wondered if anyone could identify this college-style sans-serif. Thankyou!
I'm working on a logo and need some help identifying the right font to use.
I'm looking for a sans-serif font with soft rounded edges, preferablly something with a single-stack lowercase "a". I like the humanistic qualities of Avenir but obviously this font isn't rounded.
I also like the style of the font in the new esurance logo, which I have attached below.
Fonts that I've considered so far include:
1. Comforta (although I feel like it's almost too rounded).
2. Museo (getting closer but some of the elements remind me of an old typewriter font).
Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks so much!
Hi. Trying to restore an old coffee Gaggia espresso machine...
I'm trying to get as close to the original font of the "coffee" part as possible.
Need to re type set this because it won't cut out of vinyl well in its current unrefined form, the only downside is that I don't know what typestyle it is.
Any help would be appreciated.
The corners appear to be rounded, but I am trying to fit the S and A.
I looked at FF Clan,Linotype Agilita, FB Stainless but I can match the width and height of the S and A.
Hope you've all been good.
I'm giving final touches to a new Latin typeface which has also a soft/rounded version. I was slightly confused whether I should call it Rounded or Soft? Any suggestions?
Here is how it looks:
Hey all, could really use your help on this one. Comes from an AIGA poster. It's not Avenir, Nexa, Soleil... any ideas?
I'm trying to ID this typeface used in RONA's advertising. It has a very technical edge to it. Reminds me of a DIN and some of T-26's and Lineto's work. Also shares properties with Eurostile and such. I figured someone here may be able to pinpoint it.
Hello everyone. I am a novice in type design aiming on making a serif (and if possible, a sans-serif companion) type system aimed at newspaper use. I am still in development, and I am looking at some other fonts that look great on print.
I'm looking for a versatile and (dare I say it) modern condensed grotesque, mainly for headlines and shorter texts.
- upper and lowercase
- A few weights would be nice
- the ability to use as a webfont.
I've been using this as a "placeholder" for now:
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 bought a book this morning and really like the typeface used in the titles. Unfortunately, What the Font has fallen short and I haven't had any luck elsewhere. Any help would be appreciated.. Most typefaces I find in similar styles have 'a's that I'm not fond of (don't like the 'circle with a straight stick' look).
Hi guys :)
My partner and I are having trouble identifying the typeface used here. Thanks in advance!
This would be great for a Miami/Ibiza style flyer and I am not surprised they used it for that.
Any idea what font this is?
Hi, this is the font i need help finding, any info would be much appreciated, thanks.
