Ive been really inspired by vintage style boxing posters.
ive been using the Knockout, Trade Gothic, Univers for a while and am looking for other ideas:
tall, condensed, clean typefaces.
also... think credits listed at the bottom of old movie posters (tall, condensed)
any ideas / inspiration?
from Michael Adkins...
Just wondering if I could get some feedback on this new font. First: this font isn't trying to take itself too serious. It is a condensed tribute to the classic 1940s Captain America covers. Second: It fits in fine when bold, fill-up-the-space lettering is called for, and it works great for signage when you're trying to cram everything into a tight space (DOT numbers and GVW's come to mind.) In all other venues, its usability remains to be seen.
Really, it's a work of passion, so the question of overall functionality also remains to be seen. Still, people are downloading the freebie at a hot pace, so there may be life for it beyond the funny books and sign shops. Thoughts?
I've been trying to find out what font this is… no luck so far. I feel like it must be so obvious I'm overlooking it.
Thanks in advance!
I keep coming across these flourishes but can't seem to find where they originated. I assumed they were Dover clip art since they have a vintage or antique look, but cannot find them in any of their ornament books. Perhaps these flourishes are a font... Does anyone know where these specific ornaments are from?
I am doing a project and im looking to see if anyone has a very close/exact match to these fonts. Thanks in advance!
I found this old weather station at an estate sale, and I'd love to recreate it as a design exercise.
However, on the type, I have *no* idea where to start?
Is there anyone that can help out with all the fonts on here? Or a good place to look?
Here's the best image I have of it: http://drp.ly/aOwW
I have been having some difficulty trying to identify these two fonts that I saw on two different Design Studio´s websites. Can anyone please help me ID them? Also if possible, maybe you can recommend some fonts that fit into this style Serif fonts. Images are attached.
Thank-you in advanced
I'm trying to identify the "typed" font used on this form. It's an assembly line "build sheet" used by Ford back in the sixties. Several of these forms accompanied each car (in this case a 1963 Thunderbird), and the assembly line workers used them to identify which options to install as the car moved down the line. I've been unable to find it after hours of searching - any help would be much appreciated!
A bit of a tricky one, a script typeface taken from a vintage copy of vogue.
Its most likely that it is hand drawn type created in-house, but does anybody have any idea what this script typeface is / know of any around that have similar properties?
Forgive the mostly poor quality of the image.
Greater Albion Typefounders has just launched 'Corton' a pair of display Roman small capitals faces.
Corton was inspired by the traditional lettering on a gravestone in an English village. While that might sound a rather solemn beginning, Corton has wonderfully lively air, with distinctive lively serifs and beautifully swashed downstrokes. Two faces are offered-regular and titular. Between them they are ideal signage and display faces, merging 'olde-worlde' charm and fun character.
Corton is currently available through Myfonts, and is offered at a 35% introductory discount.
Logotype for a small vintage clothing shop. Targeted largely to women, the client wanted a type-driven identity. The inventory is hand-picked vintage and sells to a trendy audience. After a bunch of cycles on numerous customized typefaces, we've centered at this direction. Some subtle things like the terminals, the 'e','r' and 'p' giving it a more character, I wanted a little old-style reference w/out being blatant, e.g. using a historical type.
You'll probably never guess what type I started with... :)
Would love any/all thoughts, thanks!
Looking for suggestions on a font very similar to the attached.
Dom Diagonal Bold is so far the best I've identified. http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/dom-casual/dom-diagonal-bold/
im looking for a font similar to these blocky, 50s / 60s era retro fonts.
does not need to be an exact match... just something in the ballpark.
Maybe I'm just using the wrong keywords, but I'm finding this surprisingly hard to find on Google. I'm hoping the Typophile think-tank can help point me in the right direction. :-)
We're rebranding a company that was founded in the early 19th century (yes, they're *that* old) in the United States, and we're trying to find authentic typefaces from the era, or modern reinterpretations that offer a comparable effect.
I don't know what the early 19th-century designers used, whether they were American typefaces or imported, but whatever was relatively common at the time for promotional materials, we're hoping to emulate as closely as reasonably possible.
Darjeeling combines British Elegance and Indian Flavor. It is flared like Optima, with a scent of Bodoni. By layering “Regular” and “Ornaments” over each other you will create astounding pieces of colorful typography. Additionally there is “Regnaments” which combines the two other styles.
Darjeeling is great as a display font, but also perfectly legible at text sizes. Use the ornaments only to add spice to Your design.
Make sure to use applications supporting all these lavish OpenType features like small caps, various sets of figures, fractals and the 102 discretionary ligatures.
Darjeeling has been recently released at myfonts:
This script was featured in the recently published book, Artistic Printing. It's labeled as "Indestructible Script" circa 1895. Appears to have been created by the Indestructible Type Company, of Chicago, patent pending Lindsay Type Foundry.
I've searched high and low (What the Font + every major & not-so-major foundry I can think of) and haven't found this script anywhere! Surely something this lovely hasn't died, or has at least been resurrected?
Here's a font I've seen before and probably even have on my hd, but i can't figure out what it is. Any ideas? It's all about the "g".
Please me out and let me know what this typeface is? I know I've seen it before but what is it? I would like the one that says post card and also the one that says rsvp.
thanks in advance!
Please help me out...I did this YEARS ago and I can't find the editable file and I can't remember which typefaces I used. I need to know both of them (script and serif) because one of my clients wants me to use them.
thanks in advance!!!
Looking for something similar to this retro/vintage script font (used on an 80s portuguese tv show).
The letters aren't even the same so this is probably all handwritten - but I'm desperately looking for something like this.
The words are cut - it read 'ora' and 'olha' (the complete words would be 'agora escolha').
Thanks in advance!
Howlett, which is now released on Myfonts.com, combines great character with extreme legibility.
It’s a simple display face that offers a sense of coziness and order, that speaks of all being well with the world. It is a modern design which pays due Acknowledgment to the past.
An extensive range of Opentype features, including old-style numerals, terminal forms, ligatures and stylistic alternatives are included.
Use it for headings and titles as well as eye catching poster work.
