friendly

Hello, I'm looking for a highly legible font for use in body copy, cutlines, and possibly heads and sub heads for a children's magazine (ages 9-13).
I need a contemporary and friendly look . Must be easy to read, and have some character while being the neutral font to some animated display fonts.
The magazine content is science-oriented and educational, packaged in a cool, entertaining way.
Definitely not stereotypical (no Clarendon, or New Century Schoolbook as much as I like them). Because the magazine includes both genders, and softer, human content, I don't want a cold. science-y looking font.

Hello,

This is a script logotype I designed. It's one of my first attempts at one, if another set of eyes could look at it and point out any flaws that would be great. Larger screenshot is attached. Thanks!

Bengala is a trendy new type system. The family is made up of a script style, an extended all-caps style, and an ornament set that includes the animal illustrations shown here.






I started by writing the name with a paint pen, scanning it in, and turning it into a vector. My goal is to create something that is upbeat, fresh, and doesn't look homemade. Feel free to critique it in a reverse compliment sandwich.

Here is a link to the band for comparison. http://mableyandgreek.bandcamp.com/#zplays

Thanks!

I am working on a logo design for an independent Italian Research Center that will carry out high quality research in the Human Rights (Transitional Justice) and Development fields and I need some help choosing a typeface to try with this logo.

I’m looking for a typeface that gives the idea of innovation (since it is an innovative center), something modern/contemporary that conveys reliability, assertiveness, knowledge and professionalism.

The logo should make them look professional/serious but with a friendly and human/social feeling at the same time.

All suggestions are welcome.

Hello everybody,

I've been reading a lot about typefaces and how different kinds can be combined in order to create layers of meaning. Type foundries usually suggest pairings for their own fonts, most notably Hoefler & Frere Jones and Font Bureau. I am looking to create an unusual mix of moods for a personal branding project:

- Hearty, friendly
- Weird, quirky
- Contemplative, dramatic

You can think of this mix as the equivalent of a Wes Anderson, Sylvain Chomet, or even a Spike Jonze film. Sort of like what film critic Peter Rainer writes about Spike Jonze's film, Being John Malkovich:
“It is hard to mix moods -- the film is manic, subtle, comic and vaguely sad -- but [Jonze] does it masterfully.”

Hi there,
I'm working on a logo and need some help identifying the right font to use.
I'm looking for a sans-serif font with soft rounded edges, preferablly something with a single-stack lowercase "a". I like the humanistic qualities of Avenir but obviously this font isn't rounded.

I also like the style of the font in the new esurance logo, which I have attached below.

Fonts that I've considered so far include:
1. Comforta (although I feel like it's almost too rounded).
2. Museo (getting closer but some of the elements remind me of an old typewriter font).

Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks so much!

Hello,

For my study application which includes a portfolio of my best work I am looking for a nice sans-serif.

Firstly, I thought it has to be a neutral typeface just like Helvetica and so on, so that it fits to my photography work
as good as to my futuristic poster (just to give an example).
But I felt that I want a typeface which has more personality, wich has a (subtle) nice, warm and friendly feeling without being too decorative.

One typeface I have found is Pluto Sans. It looks nice to me, but the description reads that its best used for screens
(http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/hvdfonts/pluto-sans/). So, would you suggest me to use it for print?

Also, if you have any other suggestions I like to hear them.

Kindly regards,
Dennis

I drove by these signs multiple times last weekend and I spotted a road-type that I hadn't seen before.. I'm really curious to figure out what SS typeface this might be:

I wish I had taken a shot of the Breckenridge one, as there are more letters to analyze, but the lowercase i seems to be the same in the "Elevation 8,150 ft." - so I assume it's the same typeface as the display that reads "Vail"

cheers!

Hi,
does anyone recognise the typeface below?
Thanks, Steffen

Hi guys,

Noticed this one on Logopond earlier today - apparently it is an altered, but not fully customised typeface.

I need this font terribly, it looks fantastic!

Best,

Hi everyone,

I would love a critique of the typeface I'm developing for my honours project this year. The two fonts below are the display cuts in an extra-bold and light weight. It's going to be used as part of an identity system for an artist-run initiative in Melbourne. Previously they were using Reader for headlines and Parry Grotesque for body copy. The naivety and clunkiness of early British grotesques was the formal starting point.

This is my first proper foray in to type design and I've yet to go through kerning pairs so forgive any awkward combinations. Love to hear your impressions, criticism, suggestions.

We are working on a cover for our book. We want to give a friendly first impression to a potentially intimidating topic. We have a great sculpture by Ann Smith as the centerpiece, but I'd like some feedback on choosing a typeface and layout. Right now we have 115% horizontally stretched Futura for the title text.

I've posted four design mock-ups to give you an idea, in addition to the preview above.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Here's another project, currently titled Melia. It's a friendly agate design, maybe less successful at its intended size than as a magazine headline font. It's also surprisingly readable on screen even without hinting.

I think some of the proportions are slightly off but need some fresh eyes to tell me which bits. And I should expect my spacing is way too tight as usual :P

Thanks in advance guys :)
