Platinus Script Pro - New at Sudtipos

Forums: 

Just in time for Xmas and New Year celebration we are proud to introduce a new font to our growing collection.

Platinus Script Pro is the latest example of what has now become a Sudtipos tradition: Adapting conventional calligraphic methods from the last two centuries to produce modern digital scripts for the current one.

This time the resulting font explores the evolution of invitation scripts from the classic commercial lettering of the 1930s to the ideas clearly visible in the greeting cards of the 1980s and 1990s.

Most base characters are made up of a single stroke, with some of strokes driven from the top down,

Meleo – An experiment of structure and contrast

The Regular weight is almost free, I hope I can also get some students to buy it ;^) Please let me know what you think!

New Typeface Neuron

Forums: 

We would like to share with the community the release of our lastest project called Neuron.

Neuron is a fresh and modern sans-serif family with a neutral and soft appearance that make it very versatile. Its possibilities are increased not only by the inclusion of true italics but by the coverage of Latin, Central European and Cyrillic characters also. The italic variants have a slight cursive influence but keep their sleekness at the same time.

Best regards,
Sergio

The Sintesi family is growing. The name for the typeface is missing. Help me with your vote!

Forums: 


New member of the Sintesi Superfamily.


Existing font Sintesi.

Sintesi diffears from the usual conformation of a Megafamily.
Strictly speaking are both Sintesi and the new release semiserif fonts.

Indeed the two sisters could not be different. While Sintesi unfolds its traditional character, its strong contrast and the perceptible feather-ductus the new release features robust and contemporary forms.

Which naming do you consider appropriate to describe this situation? Thanks for your vote and suggestions.

Outras Fontes' New Release: Alegria family

Forums: 

Hello type community,

I'm here to anounce a new release from my independent foundry. That's Alegria, a display type family designed for joyful communication. It is composed by Alegria Roman (with upper/lowercase and oldstyle figures), Alegria Caps (with uppercase, small caps and lining figures), Alegria Bright (am open face small caps version) and Alegria Fill (that can be used as a second layer with Bright or Caps faces to create multiple colors on the text).

Alegria familyis already available to purchase at MyFonts. I hope you enjoy it! :-)

Five faces I would like to see

Often here on Typophile’s Critique forums are presented some beautiful typefaces.
As it happens, some of them gather a good deal of attention, while others will receive just a comment or two.
What I very rarely have seen happening is the designer coming back to the thread announcing the release of the font.
That said, here’s a short chronological list of fonts I would really like to see released in my lifetime:

Fontographer 5 released

It’s done (at last!):

How come there has not been an official press release here already?

Manicotti

Forums: 

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let you know that my typeface Manicotti is now available for licensing on MyFonts. It was honored by the Type Directors Club in 2007, and since then I've expanded it to include lowercase, unicase, more swash variants, and ornaments. Manicotti was a whole lot of fun to draw, so I'm hoping that it is equally fun to use!

Warmly, David

What do you think is a good type(promotion) catalog

Mostly designers deliver a PDF preview of their font(s) when one in made. About how it's made, how it looks, blabla. What is your opinion about what should be in it? And which already excisting promotions do you think are good?

I'm trying to make one for myself (more like a catalog but well designed), containing my font collection.
