Display

handling webfonts in various browsers and devices

Hi guys (and girls)

Just found the site at an apt time in my life, so hoping to learn something and share ideas. Also creating my first font after 15 years as a professional digital artist (shameful, yes) but that's another topic.

I searched the forum but didn't see anything about this in the results. Wasn't sure if it should go in Design section as it's more general to all font use in browsers, especially now with CSS3 and @font-face. Feel free to move it if you like.

Belvedere - What went wrong?

Forums: 

I released this font family on myfonts a couple of weeks ago expecting it might be, if not a runaway success, at least moderately popular. To date, though, not so much as a single sale. Is this just a fashion thing, are we still in the silly season, or is the work seriously flawed? I spent two or three months drawing it, so it's a bit galling that it's met, to date, with total apathy! Your comments, suggestions and critiques are welcome. I attach a small sample, but you can view the full family at: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/studio-k/belvedere/

Flair Headline—Wide Didone

Forums: 


Hello, Typophile! Looking on feedback on a new typeface I’m working on; it’s based on my current logotype.

It’s a wide-set display didone. My design uses hairline serifs, and then flared shapes that flow from the hairline to construct letterforms that usually are defined by serifs, where a hairline serif would be too ill-defined.

Here is my newly modified logotype that I am expanding into a typeface, I added a curl to the /R/ leg, as well as tracked out my first name.

The Wallington

Wallington Typeface

Hey guys! allow me to introduce my first release font.

Wallington is a decorative-serif font embodying vintage and elegant curves with functional structure. Inspired by Old English cultures and their descendants between the mid-5th century and the mid-12th Century. Made up of two styles, Wallington Regular that consists of 491 glyphs and Wallington Small Caps with 365 glyphs. All glyphs are divided into several OpenType features such as Ligature, Contextual Alternates, Old Style Numeric and some astonishing special characters that allows you to mix and match pairs of letters to fit your design.

Serif Typeface with Serif cut/s ()

Hi guys,

I am looking for a serif typeface along the lines of Marlene (http://www.typonine.com/fonts/font-library/marlene/), that has a large family which includes stencil cuts. I am working on an online magazine layout and would like to implement the stencil version as a hover effect for links.

The foundry selling it should therefore be able to host the type (have a web version).

Thank you!

Critique my first attempt at a typeface?

Forums: 

I wanted to experiment with making a typeface in a casual, unsophisticated way, as an educational experience. I'd like to try and get technical like you good folks at some point, and make some really crisp & clean fonts, but I know there's a big learning curve waiting for me. So this was just a quick & dirty project.

Forums: 

Hi guys

Lisu Font does not display in Windows

Forums: 

Hello,

I installed the LisuUnicode font https://github.com/phjamr/LisuUnicode/blob/master/LisuUnicode-Regular.ttf on Windows 7 and it won't display unless you specify that you want to use that font. For example, if you select the Lisu font in Microsoft Word, it will display the Lisu input, but if you want to do anything in an another WIndows program, like Internet Explorer, it will just display boxes (unless the website has it specified in its stylesheet, that the font should be used). Interestingly it will always display in Firefox, but not in other browsers or in QQ (a chat program Chinese people frequently use). Lisu is a Chinese minority and there are a number of fonts available, but none works under Windows 7 or lower.

Troubles with html entities referred to specific glyphs (HTML, FontLab)

Forums: 

Hello everyone,
I try to explain you the problem.

I created a typography that has both common (e.g. between "f" and "i") and custom (e.g. between "p" and "p") ligatures and used FontLab to export the font in ttf.
Now I want an HTML page to display the font and I write & #xFB01 for common ligature between "f" and "i".
But where should I operate to display custom ligature between "p" and "p"?

Thank you in advance for your attention!

Start of a new Display typeface

Forums: 

Hello all,

I just started working on a new typeface. Working title is "Inky", not so very sure of that name in the first place. I was thinking about the ink splatters/clouds that Cephalopods eject. Some of the shapes used refer to a stylized version of ink blurps so to say.

Anyway, I started with the capitals, see below. The C, G and U might still need a bit of work (or a complete rework maybe). The M and N are quite wide compared to the other letters but I'm unsure right now how to solve that. Quite pleased with how the V and W turned out - although on some points these might stand out a bit.

Comments and suggestions most welcome!
