The New Standard of Unicase Sans-Serif Fonts

Forums: 

I've been trying to create a website for my software design company and, at least for some of its functions, I think a unicase sans-serif font would look good. I used some font creation software to create a unicase version of Myriad Pro, but it's nothing polished—I'm only an amateur at typography. It represents the basic look of the unicase font I'd like to see, but do you know of any already-created fonts that might bear some resemblance to it? I included in the title of my post the phrase, "the new standard", because I feel as if some of the existing unicase fonts aren't quite up to par with the "classics" of Helvetica, Myriad, Frutiger, etc.

Identifying Bon Magazines sans..?

I came across this sans a while back and haven't really been able to find it.
It's used for headlines in swedish Bon Magazine.


It looks a bit like Neuzeit, as well as a Drescher Grotesk, but it's not quite there.
I'm sorry about the horrid picture quality, I'll try to pick up a copy and get some scans asap.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Bas Jan Ader sans-serif

I used to have this typeface, but when I got a new computer, I must not have copied it over, and I can't find any documentation (I guess I never used it). anyway, it's used on the cover of the Bas Jan Ader book and dvd (seen here: http://www.basjanader.com/img/blog_cover.jpg) and throughout the website BasJanAder.com

Anyone have a guess?

Fonts that bridge the gap between Serif and Sans.

Hello.

I'm working on a project and the main font for the logo (company name) is hard to pin down. It doesn't work with fonts like Helvetica and nor does it work with traditional serif fonts. I'm looking for a modern font that's clean but has a bit of flair (hope that makes sense lol). Sorry for being vague, if people could post up some suggestions it would really help me out!

Many thanks

Mid-Century Europeanish Board Game

Forums: 

Greetings Folks,
I'm looking for a suggestion for a modernist typeface or two to use for a mid-century, Europeanish card game...something slightly swiss and a bit serious.
I know the usual suspects, but I've been looking at some wildcards: FF BAU, Akkurat, DIN ROUNDED, FOUNDERS GROT, and ROUTER (which would really soften up the look and lower the age group).

Any wild and crazy suggestions?

Sans-serif to match Papyrus

Forums: 

Hi all,

I am looking for a sans-serif typeface to match Papyrus (not my choice - I loathe that font). It will be used on a website, for menu headings and also body text. Even a suggestion of what characteristics would match would be helpful- humanist, geometric, grotesque etc. The website is for a horror/thriller film, if that is any help on choosing a font.

Looking forward to any recommendations to solve this conundrum!

Regards,

David

(x) What font is this? It's not Myriad Pro... but it's so close! - Calibri {Giorgio B}

Hey everyone!

I work at a graphic design agency, and we're redoing some of our website. For whatever reason some of the source files are hard to access and we're trying to identify one of the fonts, but we're having trouble. So, naturally, I thought I'd hit up Typophile for help. Here are some URL's.

Sans-serif Belwe lookalike needed!

Hey there,

I am currently looking for a font that has a similar Art-Nouveau feel as the Belwe font. This means that it needs irregular sized B and A. I think this is called a high and low axis?
Anyay we love Belwe but would actually like it to be a sans-serif. The shapes in this font are supernice but it is a bit too romatic with all the serifs.
Does somebody know a sans-serif which relates to this font?

Thank you for the help!

Looking for a sans serif for a personal web project

Forums: 

Hey everyone,

I decided to rework the visual system of a personal web project of mine from scratch, and am having problems deciding on a new logoface for it. Right now I'm just using Helvetica, but I'm looking for something with the same sturdiness and transparency, but a little more playfulness and character. The site focus is images and video, so the interface, and ultimately the visual system as a whole, should disappear when it needs to.

The site is social, and this would pretty much be the logotype.

I'm kind of liking Brauer Neue, but I know that I can do better. I was hoping someone might have some suggestions. Already went through a few foundries websites and came up with nothing.

Thanks a lot!

I'm tired of Titillium that isn't legible in small font sizes! I need a sans-serif font which be totally legible in small sizes!

Hello people!

I'm tired of Titillium and TitilliumText22L! It's not legible in small sizes or in 11, 13, 14px in the sites or blogs! Titillium isn't like Arial, Helvetica and Verdana. Titillium is totally legible only in Word 2007 with optimized ClearType, Paint, Photoshop, Illustrator, Inkscape and Gimp.

I need a free and ORIGINAL font which...
— sans-serif
— totally legible in small sizes (10 to 14px)
— contemporary
— corporate
— fashionable
— modern
— squarish
— techno
— text.

Thanx u all!

Structural sans-serif with swash?

This may be a common question, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a structural sans-serif (like Gotham or Proxima Nova) that had an alternate character set with colorful swashes, like Caslon or Garamond do.

I frequently find myself wanting to set headlines in a strong, simple face and then dress up one or two letters; if I had such a font in my back pocket, I think it could happen. I'd appreciate any leads!
