Type Anatomy Reference

Hi.

I am new to typography & recently started reading about typography in detail. As a first step, i am trying to understand type anatomy, to help myself i making a simple poster with type anatomy explained, so i can stick it in-front of me & let it hammer in my mind.

Till now, these are the details i am able to fetch from various sources : http://nitingarg.com/shared/first-draft.jpg

Now, it would be really helpful if you can just check & let me know if i am missing something or done something wrong there.

Thanks for your time !

Please, help me.
Thank you very much,

Kind regards.

PS : I only own some figures, no letters...

FREE Font?!

Does anyone know a FREE font that's very similar to Soho Gothic?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there this is my first post-
Rookie designer looking for some critique/ feedback on these logos.

This is a re-brand for an established IT help desk company
which is looking to promote the web hosting side of their business.

They're present branding includes the red colour, with just text (arial i think)
I'd unfotrunately like to stick with only the fonts you get free on a standard mac.

I would like to present a maximum of 3 logos to the client,
not got the confidence yet to decide for myself whats best.

Any feedback welcome, just your top 1 or 2 logos
some finish work needed on all logos

need help!

Hi there,

I am in need of some serious help with my font. I have already designed it, and when I go and and export it into FontLab, everything gets messed up. Does anyone know of a company or a freelance typeographer that can help me out? MyFonts have already set up an foundry, and I didn't realize it would be this difficult. If anyone can lead me in the right direction, that would be great!

Thank you,
Erin

I cant see my outlines

Hi everyone,

I have a very script and ornate font that I am trying to generate. Can someone tell me why, when I generate my font, I cannot see the smaller outlines to my font? Also, I might need to pay a company/person to help me generate this font. Can anyone tell me of a company in the L.A. area that can do this for me? Or a freelance Typographer?

Thank you,
Erin

Hello! I've got a bit of dilemma on my hands. I'm currently the design editor of my university's student newspaper and for April 1st we're doing a joke issue with the theme "time warp." Each page will be from a certain period in time, with the first page being the beginning of the universe (the leading cover choice right now is a blank page) and the last page will the end of it. All pages will be themed, with some modeled after illuminated manuscripts and others 1920s newspapers, for example.

Now, I'm incredibly excited for this project, but the fonts have got me tripped up, specifically at the very beginning (cavemen and the discovery of fire) and the end (the far, far future). Anything after the start of movable type I'm fine with, obviously, because I can start to use Garamond and the like. But I'd like some ideas for the type before typography and into the future.

Qualtagh

Hi all,

I've been working on and off on this typeface for the last few months. While I did start creating one a few years ago, I'd consider this my first "real" attempt at a full font. While a lot of the details are more suited to display purposes, I'm also trying to make it work at smaller sizes (maybe a separate text version?).

I haven't really shown it to many people yet and I'd like to know what you think and if it's worth continuing with. I'm mainly concerned about it looking too amateur-ish and wanted to know if there are any glaring beginner mistakes/things I've missed.

I am a designer, and over the past 2 years I have created several typefaces (Latin 9). I have done this at my salaried job. I also do freelance design and have recently been asked to give someone a quote for a Latin 9 San-serif character set. Does anyone out there have a general pricing guide they use for freelance type design?

PLEASE can anybody help me figure out this particular font??? The closest I've found is Drescher Grotesk or Century Gothic, but cant figure the outline(the outline is key!)
I'd be incredibly greatful.

Cheers.

Does anyone have a good suggestion for a typeface that needs to represent classic NY brownstone and modern high-efficient energy features, such as solar panels pre-installed?

Hello Typophiles! It's been a while since I lurked these corridors, but I have a slight query at work and would like to ask your opinions if I may.

Been given a re-branding project at work, its nothing enormous, but it revolves around fashion and extreme sports. We are building a new website, product photography, the whole shebang.

To cut the long story short, the owners want the brand to be different, but not too different. The brand 'Typeface' being a horrid font by the name of 'Aggie'. Anyway. It has to go.

So I need rid of Aggie, and the replacement needs to resemble it in some fashion but drag it out of 2002. If that is at all possible.

I was hoping that you guys could help me out. I am by no means a typographer of any sort, so I was hoping to get your help. I would like to get the following verse in a tattoo on my right calf, and was hoping I could get your opinions on fonts, spacing, kerning and all that good stuff.

"Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."

That is the verse I was planning on, and I was hoping to run it just under half way around my calf and then rap to the next line, so I'm guessing it would have to be about 16pt, hoping for no longer than 3 lines long... I don't know if this would be adequate information.. That would make the width about 3.5 to 4 inches across..

Typekit and Wordpress

I'm pretty new to all this and Ive spent the last few hours trying to find help files and fooling around with code and I think I'm at the poiny where I'm risking screwing up the entire site. Can anyone help or direct me to a source that will help me use a Typekit font on my site?

Thanks in advance.

hi Typohiles.

I am a self-taught Designer. And my major work area is Illustration & Web. And i do have an interest in Typography.
I would appreciate if i can get some Book recommendations from you experts. I have been reading & following various type blogs around the webosphere, so if you are aware of books which are lot more detailed & still worth buying, please let me know !

Thanks ! :)

Indices : "How To" Section : Programming OpenType Features

Preface
OpenType is a powerful new font format that gives users a much broader range of typographic and linguistic control than has previously been available with a single digital font. More and more type foundries offer OpenType (OT) fonts these days and one can expect the average user to become more aware of the benefits of OT fonts as more applications take advantage of their capabilites in the future.
