Thoughts on Modern Glyph

Forums: 

Hello! My name is Emy Dalsted and I am a senior at The Art Institute of Phoenix. I am pursuing a degree in graphic design with a minor in typography. I have recently just completed the design of my second typeface. And would like to know what you think abut it, What I can improve on and what you like about it.

Modern Glyph
Designed By: Emy Dalsted

The classification of this font is a modern san serif that is based on a modular square grid with circular rules. There is nothing complicated to this font it is created to be simple and legible at any size.

Light, balanced sans-serif suggestions

Forums: 

Hi There,
This is my first post here so pardon me if I've missed any etiquette.
I have a logo mark which is in development which must be a 3 spoke design representing the 'Y' character. Each spoke is equal length and angle and I'm having difficulty matching it to a font and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

I'm really looking for a font where this shape will fit in nicely as the 'Y'. If needs be I'll design a font around it but I was really hoping there was something out there which would fit it.

Thanks very much for any suggestions.

Soho Body Text

Hey everyone!

Has anyone noticed that it is difficult to set body text in Soho Regular?

For me Regular it seems a bit to dark, whereas Light does the job much better. Also, probably due to the large x-height the Auto leading value of 120% is way too tight. Although, I think the large x-height is also responsible for high legibility and readability in small sizes, which is a good thing.

My own experimentation led me to a decision of using Soho Light 7.5/11.5 pt or 8/12 pt for body text.

Does anyone have any experience working with this typeface? Any comments/tips?

MeM — an interactive type system with a wide range of individual personalities

Forums: 

Sometimes a surprise, sometimes as expected – MeM is an interactive type system with a wide range of individual personalities.

The eccentric experimental type system created by Elena Schädel and Jakob Runge in 2012. It produces many personalities, each individual and emotive. You will never know which of the alternating letters is going to occur next. Basically, at the heart of it all is MeM: four different weights and letter shapes melded together into one powerful font and shuffled with the sleek usability of OpenType.

need something light and flowy that will go with an art nouveau tattoo

Hi there.. I've searched for months for the right font to finish off my MJ Memorial sleeve. I've done a quick search here and I haven't found anything positive about Michael Jackson, so please no comments on the subject, haha.

I have an almost completed sleeve on my left arm. It is art nouveau inspired and very colorful. I am looking for a font that can be used to finish this. I know it has to exist somewhere the way it does in my head (I can't draw or I'd just make something up myself).

It needs to be light, flowing, magical, unique AND go with an art nouveau style.

It will say "so anyway, I think we've captured some good magic here"

New Release: Rue Display.

Forums: 

TypeTogether is proud to introduce Rue Display, an organic, casually ornamental, narrow-faced sans serif designed by Winnie Tan.

Rue's spirited and exploratory design is the materialization of a feeling about fonts as a family of organisms taking on a life of its own, in work and play. It was conceived as a typeface, used as an image and discovered as an ornament.

It comes in 10 weights of light, regular, medium, semibold and bold, each with italics.

(x) Very extended retro slab serif - (similar to) Hellenic Wide {Lex}

I've seen this nice light extended slab serif typeface on 50s-60s signage, parking garages, schools, libraries, and old wood type block printing, but could never identify it! It's not Adore, Memphis, Serifa, Egyptienne, Beton... but it kind of resembles an extended Stymie, especially with the pointy bottom of the "N". I used to admire it daily on my way to the A Train in Bed-Stuy on a school on Malcolm X Blvd.

thanks all,
Scott
