I would like to tell you how magnificent Times New Roman in Indonesia is. Times New Roman (especially in 12 point for body text) is very standard in various writing. Every scientific writings, school assignments, government documents, law documents and other non-casual non-modular (i.e like advertisement etc) should use Times New Roman. I ever created a assignment in Georgia and my teacher in high school rejected my assignment. In every single University in Indonesia, all of scientific writing (minithesis, thesis, dissertation, paper etc) must be printed in Times New Roman 12. I don't know how why people standardize and convene Time New Roman as the one and only formal serif font that able to use in Indonesia. This kind of 'natural' convention is really irritating me.
New to design!
I have very little experience and only just started to act on my interest in typography.
This was mostly a dabbler's interest, until recently.
I submitted my first font, called Whale, to MyFonts. They promptly rejected it and basically said it was totally unprofessional. It's meant mainly for display, so I don't know why I bothered submitting to them in the first place, but I now have a stronger desire to make this font as good as it can be. Maybe even simplify it for use beyond just displays.
My feelings will not be hurt. I would greatly appreciate a serious critique of my design so that I can make the next version of Whale far better.
Thanks for your time.
“Kamenica” - named after a beautiful small mountain river in Serbia - is a font family containing 3 weights: Light, Regular and Bold.
The Kamenica river is only a few meters wide. Mostly shallow and cold, clear and green, it was the direct inspiration source for the creation of this condensed typeface. As our other typefaces, “Kamenica” also combines traditional shapes with modern forms, tall x-height and a collection of more than 300 glyphs.
Comparing the river with the font, we could say that letters are the fishes that lives in the Kamenica river and that the font weights are the seasons in which this river shows most of its own character.

Few years ago i stumble upon some font on old poster, when i tried to find it, via various sites, nothing pop-up... then i thought, probably is old and it wasn't renewed and/or remaked.
But recently i encountered on it again, with slight changes, and most important on a new design, which means - it's still in use, and it exists. Tryed again with "what is this font" sites, nothing again...
Then i decided that i need your help!
This is the font.
Does the world really need one more vernacular pop culture typeface? We here, at astroluxtype shout a resounding yes!
Sure, you can find the apex of fine font design that will have your mind and eyes burst with joy at the level of sophistication and craftsmanship they exhibit- Koo Koo Puff Condensed and Light Condensed are not one of those fonts. But if kooky goofy is your thing, we're selling it at the astroluxtype booth.

The Power of the Engine
Victorian revivals and inspirations often seize on the period’s tendency toward florid decoration. However, the times were also the final surge of the industrial revolution, a time that witnessed the ultimate development in steam, diesel and oil: engines of all kinds. Engine Nine captures the nitty-gritty of a hard-boned indomitable age, boundless in its faith in the technologies of iron and steel, tempered by half-remembered neo-classical details such as the verticality of neo-gothic windows, and finely detailed finials. It’s all here in the brute strength of the verticals, the blackness of the tight setting, the contrasting delicacy of the terminal serifs.

Delve Fonts releases Oktal Mono, a new typeface by Joachim Müller-Lancé and Erik Adigard.
A monospaced type family composed of entirely mono-linear and modular structure, Oktal Mono first began in a design-philosophical discourse between Joachim Müller-Lancé and Erik Adigard of the design studio M-A-D in Sausalito, California. The typeface later came to life as a design experiment wherein a type designer (Joachim) and a graphic designer (Erik) collaborate each in their own capacity, from within their respective disciplines.
Sintesi Sans scores because of its readability, robustness and contemporary style. Its is a true Sans Serif and therefore really flexible, universally applicable especially as a body text font and in a broad number of other applications.
Download the trial version of the font families Sintesi and Mimix for free:
Catchy monoline script inspired by hand made products, from picky tasty food, soaps, chocolates, candies to ice creams, textile products and wedding invitations.
Refren comes as our 25th font family, on 7th May, on our 3rd birthday.
(will be available in all shops in next few days)

I'd like to announce the release of the work-in-progress version of my new typeface, Otama. All thoughts and opinions are very much welcome and appreciated.

‘Sendai’ is a new 6-weight typeface family, designed by British type designer Philip Kelly.
The typeface is comfortable in text usage with the slightly condensed shapes that help save space and also achieve punchy display headlines. The restrained serifs are a nod to the Latin styles of the past. The fonts are available exclusively from Philip Kelly Digital Design directly. The fonts are supplied in OpenType Postscript format which is Mac and Windows compatible. PDF Brochure available via: email@example.com
This is a very quick and rough (very rough) draft of my typeface. I was just looking for feedback and everyones first impressions keep in mind this is my first typeface and I am relatively new to the process.
I have currently only done the lowercase just because I'm not 100% sure what direction I should be going in. I was going for an italic serif loosely based off of Bodoni and I tried to go with the Old style/ Transitional style.
First impression, critique, technical aspects any comment will be helpful thank you.
I'm really having trouble with c/e/f/y/k/s/ but of course I will take any advice on all or any of the letters.
Just to say hello to this forum. I am a new member and this site seems appealing for us, junior graphic designers, who understand typography is one of the most important feature of the works we make. I am here to perfect my understanding and application of typography.
see you around

P22 announces new releases for March- 2 new fonts by Terry Wudenbachs for IHOF, based on designs from the Nebiolo Type Foundry.
P22 Slogan is a non-connecting script font that captures the essence of the lettering used in 1950s European advertising. Bold strokes of this brush-drawn face make this design a great choice for both retro design and contemporary work. The font is based on the 1957 design "Slogan" by Aldo Novarese for the Italian Nebiolo Type Foundry. At the time of its original release, it was touted for "striking publicity work". This new digitization accurately reproduces the outlines of the original not found in previous digital versions of this design. P22 Slogan is a non-Pro Opentype font that includes Central European characters.
P22 Nebiornaments contains over 100 ornaments based on the Italian Nebiolo Type Foundry designs of the 1950s. Many of these ornaments are designed to create complex patterns and continuous borders. The simple geometric shapes allow for endless combinations for a wide variety of uses.
Hi, as part of my current Uni. project I am researching the use of Times New Roman, and really need to build up a gallery of pictures of it in use.
I've been doing some searching but can't find an awful lot, I was wondering if anybody could suggest some campaigns/identities to look at, particularly major ones, but the more the better.
