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..
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.
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 ! :)
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.
