condensed

Hello!

It's my first time here, so I'll quickly introduce myself: I'm Carel Fransen, graphic designer from the Netherlands, and currently working on my graduation projects.

For my project, I'm looking for a quality condensed font with a large x-height that does great at small corps-sizes (approx. 6-7 pt).

I have got one font that works very well: Bureau Grot Light. However, I'd like to have some options. Unfortunately, due to the "advanced search"-mechanisms on big font-sites not being that advanced, it's nearly impossible to search for something this specific.

Lichtspiele — A typocalypse display typeface

Cinemas from the early 20th Century are called "Lichtspiele" in Germany. "Lichtspiele" transports you back to a time where neon lights and marquee letters decorated cinema facades.

Of the 5 styles, three have two versions of italics - one for each perspective. Display is your basic style. Neon is inspired by the old neon letters found outside cinemas.
Add Neon Outline to Display or Neon to add another layer to your artwork. Neon 3D is a extruded version of Neon. Screen Credits is based on the liner notes of movie posters.

You can get it at MyFonts for a introduction price of 29,85 USD

Hi,

I'm looking for a font that is near identical to Gotham Condensed Ultra. I would purchase this font from Hoefler but do not sell this font on it's own but combine it with the set for £500! Anyway, I would love to hear from someone who could suggest a couple of alternatives.

Many thanks,

Colin

Baton

Dear Typophiles,

We are happy to release our latest typeface, we hope you like it.
Baton is a sans serif typeface with narrow proportions combining eccentric shapes inspired by french vernacular typography with the simplicity of modern sans serifs. Peculiar details and a low contrast make the design slightly strange yet elegant, but it is the exaggerated high and low midline in the uppercase and the small x-height which give Baton its distinctive flair. Relatively wider and more toned down, the lowercase allow Baton to function not only as a display typeface, but also for short texts such as leads in magazine.

Chefscript Typeface - Buy licenses at MyFont
Chef Script is an experimental font designed by Carlos Fabian Camargo G. Its fantasy design contains 1463 glyphs to compose words, phrases and short messages on small and large sizes. The idea was born in a sketchbook that was perfected again by hand and achieving "non-neutral drawings" on tracing paper. With bezier digitization the empty and full parts of letters appeared with soft and eloquent curves as calligraphic result produces optimal readability.

Condensed Font ID

Hi all,

Any help in identifying this font would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Pardon my ignorance of typographic vocabulary--
I'm looking for recommended typefaces that are condensed or have a condensed version in which the leg of the capital R descends below the baseline and is curved. (what is that called?)

Thanks in advance!

Hello All,

In my job, I have to deal with folks who have very little attention span. Often I have to write elevator-pitch summaries for which Narrow / Condensed fonts work much better than Regular version of fonts. Also, earlier I had been using Garamond or Cambria for printed-out presentations, but after reading articles about Baskerville font, I tried out Baskerville Old Face. While the switched to Baskerville Old Face hasn't noticeably improved any success rates, I have received more positive comments about the presentations.

Are there any font recommendations that are simultaneously BOTH
(a) Narrow / Condensed
(b) based on Baskerville (Old Face)

Freely available font recommendations will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Prad

Hi guys,
does anyone know of a typeface that is similar to the one attached here?
I'm working on a novel that centers around a vietnam refugee, and I'd love to set the title in something like this.

Thanks in advance!

What serif typeface is the Automatic Eye logo based on? Many thanks.

Hey all, any ideas what this is?

Thanks

Hi!
My name is Abel Martín and that is my first post at Typophile :)

My question is about that wood type that i have in my letterpress cabinet.
I would like know the name and maybe some about the history...

Thanks!

After almost seven years of putting it off the time has finally come to assemble a portfolio and stationary etc. Over the last few months I've been looking at a number of typefaces to use for 'branding' myself so to speak and have almost certainly settled on Akzidenz Grotesk Condensed Light and Regular.

The things I love –

  • The vertical sides to the C, D, G, O and Q characters.
  • It's subtly square–ish appearance (for example the bowl on the P and R characters).
  • The straight diagonal leg of the R character.
  • It's history and heritage.
  • I love condensed fonts.
  • It is very utilitarian and simple.
    • The things I do not love –

    In the April 7th 2013 issue of New York Times Magazine, they use a rounded-condensed Sans Serif that has square tops (sorry for the incorrect terminology) on the capital A. Anyone know what this is or who makes it? (See attached image)

    Hello - -this post follows up on a search fro a very similar condensed serif used for Time-Life (http://typophile.com/node/102039)

    I am trying to identify the typeface used in a Hernan Bas catalogue from last year, published by Distanz in Germany... any help much appreciated, thank you!


    Hello

    We would love to know what font is used on this very popular series of books published in the late 80s by Time-Life
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mysteries_of_the_Unknown

    As ever, many thanks for your time and expertise! This post is also related to an enquiry about a similar tpyeface used on a Hernan Bas catalogue from Germany which I will be posting next...

    I feel like this should be easy but I couldn't find it :/

    Hi y'all,
    please help me id-ing this monospaced sans serif font.
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi there,

    Just trying to find out what this font is. Many thanks!

    I'm looking for a versatile and (dare I say it) modern condensed grotesque, mainly for headlines and shorter texts.

    I need:

    - upper and lowercase
    - italics
    - A few weights would be nice
    - the ability to use as a webfont.

    I've been using this as a "placeholder" for now:

    Any suggestions?

    Best regards
    Mads

    So I'm doing this poster and don't want to hassle with finding the perfect wood type, but I want something with a little more character that's available in digital. I'm currently using Grotzec X-Narrow Bold with some mods, but I'm not set on it. Hoping to get some other suggestions to very condensed grotesques that look a little more like wood type with interesting idiosyncrasies.

    Thanks for the help,
    Joseph
