Heavy Humanist Serif - New Design

Forums: 

Hi There typophilers,

New time poster/ long time admirer of typophile from Brighton UK here attempting a typeface based on a logo i designed for our company - a design studio called Filthy in the UK. Attatched is the filthy logo, which is to be printed in a black foil and embossed, but for the moment i have added some lighting effects to give you the idea of the final outcome. Here i am attempting to create a typeface that is of a heavy weight and resembles latex when used as a logo (mirroring the Filthy theme).

Filthy Typeface

Hi typophilers,

New time poster on typophile from Brighton UK here attempting a typeface based on a logo designed for our company - a design studio in the UK. Attatched is the typeface which is to be printed in a black foil and embossed, but for the moment i have added some lighting effects to give you the idea of the final outcome. Here i am attempting to create a typeface that is of a heavy weight and resembles latex when used as a logo.

I have developed the typeface for a mailout and am now extending the face into a full working typeface. I believe it could be fairly interesting when completed. The face uses influences from rhythmic calligraphic stokes and from heavy weighted Caslon faces. I have added a humanist element to the face as well.

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?

Acorde - 'A' 'cor'porate 'de'sign typeface

Forums: 

I am happy to announce that after a long period of development, my type family Acorde is available for purchase at http://www.willerstorfer.com

About the typeface:
Acorde is a reliable workhorse for large, demanding design projects. It was designed to be perfectly suited to all different sizes, from small continuous text to large headlines and big signage. The typeface’s name is derived from ‘a’ ‘cor’porate ‘de’sign typeface, however Acorde is not only suitable for corporate design programmes but for information design and editorial design purposes as well.

"Organic" humanist sans serif typeface

Hi again,

I'm on a (rather quick) quest for a quirky/organic humanist sans serif in a heavy weight. The word I'm setting is "Coffey," so bonus points for a nice ff ligature.

On my list:
Corbel

Mayberry
Bree
Hypatia Sans (if I can figure out where to buy it)
Lapidaria Sans

Question on spoting typeface groups

Hi,

I've just got a bit confused on how to spot Humanist, Transitional and Modernist typefaces?

Can anyone help me out on what to look for please?

I thought I knew how to tell, but when it came to it, I just completely forgot.
I keep thinking it's something to do with the angle of letters and how geometric they look??

(if you get your info from a website can you link me please as I need references, thanks)

thanks in advance anyway

How did the term 'Humanist' become attached to Sans Serifs?

It seems that the term 'Humanist' in typography is used solely to describe a certain type of sans serif. But is this really a reference to the renaissance Humanist scribe hands? If so why is the term not used for serifed typefaces that are directly related to this humanist hand?
Does anyone know when the history of when term was first 'coined' in regards to sans serif. Was it just an attempt to categorise, or maybe a commercial reason, to set a typeface design as different from the rest by giving it an saleable tag, one that gave it a mystique, esteem or historical cogitation.
Humanism also has many non-typographic meanings. What does this tag imply to you as designers?
