Hi all,

I am reworking a logo I created for a local Oktoberfest celebration
and I have to choose new fonts. I am using a blackletter face but
for the other subheader text, I need to pair the blackletter with
something which complements or contrasts it and not sure outside
of a geometric typeface what will work with the blackletter. I have
yet to choose which blackletter typeface I will use. Right now,
the client needs to have several choices.

Any help is greatly appreciated!


I'm trying to identify the above font. From my online research it seems closest to the lowercase letters of the DTC Plaza family, but the C and the A are not quite right.

This is from a logo designed many years ago - so it is probably an older font, if that helps.




I'm a experimental film student from Brussels, I like tattoo's and I just got my first ink. I don't want any drawings on my body, just fonts. Because they are figurative AND the have a direct meaning and message.

I want to put a piece of text on my chest. A fragment of a monologue from "Mad Men".


it's delicate, but potent.
in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound."
It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone.
Nostalgia isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine.
It goes backwards, and forwards...
It takes us to a place where we ache to go again.
It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again.
To a place where we know we are loved."


Hello good people of the typophile forums. Could any of you identify this font for me? Menards Store Logo I've been looking on and off for years. Now I'm getting serious. :-) Thank you.


This is my first post on the forum. My name is Aaron and I'm a Graphic Design student @ Roger Williams University. I just recently tried to clean up and organize all my typefaces on my MAC. I have quite a hefty collection. After not finding out what I'm looking for in various searches here, I would like to ask a couple questions about type management.

The first is, Am I better off applying imported type to Suitcase Fusion or allowing Fusion to read from the directory? Every time I attempt to activate a large selection of typefaces, the system gets bogged down and takes forever to activate them.

Hi All - I found this community this morning and registered so I could ask a question. I searched before posting but couldn't find an answer (at least that I could understand).

I should preface my question by saying that I am a newbie when it comes to understanding the intricacies of type, even though I am fascinated by it.

So here is the question/problem:

Need Help

I purchased this font back in 2002 and have since replaced my computer. Unfortunately, my computer crashed before I got rid of it so what mattered more was saving my documents versus my fonts. Anyhow, I need help identifying the font so I can rebuild my company logo. Thanks in advance!

Hi my frinds; Please, I really need to know what font is this one:

Hi all.
I need a font similar to that of the word "Broadway" in the photograph below.
Thank you!

Hi there, i am currently in my third year at university studying graphic design and have recently started my dissertation.

I have decided on an area of which i would like to focus on however the subject area has been covered before and continues to be discussed in the design industry of late.

I would like to base my dissertation on print and pixel and where the two are heading. However i am really struggling on pin pointing one aspect within such a large subject (help?). For me print publishing will always appeal to me, the aesthetic value of a well designed publication is what print is all about. Its why I love what i do.

Now i have discussed and brainstormed the subject with my tutor. But if anyone can provide me with further advice then it would be greatly appreciated.

Currently on a team that's building a site for a charity in 24 hours -

Client has a new logo but their PR team hasn't supplied a font or any other details other than the logo. Any ideas what this is, tried all the usual avenues including WhatTheFont.

Help appreciated :)

Help ID Font

Can anyone help me ID this font? I made the mistake of outlining the font and not saving the original!

Thanks much!

Anyone have an idea on this one? I've seen Q's like that before, but I've gone through a bunch of my fonts with no luck.

Hey - I need to know what this font is. Is there anyone that could help me out. Point me in the right direction... etc...?


The font I'm looking for is the one that is usually on those old red and yellow propaganda posters that say things like "Rise up!" and have pictures at fists and hammers at the bottom. I feel like maybe they were old Soviet posters but I can't get a picture of one so I hope someone can help.

Hi folks,

I'm new on here so excuse any blunders or assumptions i might make in my plea for help. I've just finished designing a logo for a client and was just about to get started on some stationary as you do and realised I've been using the same set of fonts for way too long.

I'm asking for a bit of help with type selection to work as part of an identity, so initially stationary and a small brochure. The job is for a client who is about to open a Pilates studio on the UK's South coast. She's got uninterrupted views from the studio out to sea hence the concept for the logo.

I was looking for sans serif that wasn't too slight/condensed to compliment the curves of Hermes used in the logo. But I'm totally open to all suggestions, that's why I'm here.

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone here could help me identify this font:

I've seen this one around in a few different places, but haven't yet been able to pinpoint it. It seems like it's similar to Helvetica, except a bit more narrow and some letters, like "D", "C", and "O" are less round. The "R" seems to be very distinctive as well, with the tail curving outward a decent bit more than Helvetica's "R". Any help identifying this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey guys I could use some help on IDing this font. Any ideas?

Need some help...

I love glaserSted font. It's freeware and can be found here:

[link removed by moderator]

However, I do not know the font that this comes from. I'm looking for the "parent" font that the author turned into a stencil type font. Essentially, I'm looking for this simple, sans-serif font to use with glaserSted.




I was hoping someone could help me - I'm currently trying to find the name of this font:

And then a free download to re-create it for a project.

If anyone can help, it's very much appreciated!

It's sort of an emergency... so I'm coming to the experts.

The font isn't exactly what I'm looking for, but its the foundation I need for now.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

I was wondering if i may have some assistance in a logo i am creating at the moment. I have licensed metroscript and would like to increase the contrast so the logo is scaleable and legible in small sizes.

So far i have filled the "O"'s counter, as well as the "A"'s to increase legibility, however I am still struggling to add contrast to the logo.

Are there any tips you might have?



This font seems to be a cross between Poetica Roman and Durrow Bold. I can't find it anywhere.


Thank you!!!

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.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys!

If anyone could help i would appreciate it so much! I have looked through thousands of pages of fonts, trying to find this one, or one close to it! It would mean so much to me!
