Help identifying handwritten serif style font

Can someone help me identify this font. I've looked everywhere and so that I don't have this problem in the future, what type of font classification does this really fall under and what type of serifs are these called? To me the font seems reminiscent of an art deco look and school/marker style, but I'm not sure of that either at this point.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me. :)

Research paper on Bodoni/transitional

Forums: 

Hey all!

This is my first post, so be gentle. My professor, Pablo Medina, suggested this place to ask for some insight on a research paper I'm doing.

I'm basically in the formative throws right now, but I'm working towards some sort of thesis. I'm thinking about discussing how Bodoni as a transitional typeface bridges the gap between serif and sans serif fonts, and/or something else to do with its place in history.

As I said-- formative throws.

My main point of posting here is to ask if you guys can recommend any good sources, print or otherwise, for me to read up on the history and help myself get as close to a perfect grade as possible!

Anything would be appreciated, even just insight.

Regards,
Nathen.

SVA Masters in Branding Typeface

Have been seeing this font used in the SVA Masters in Branding ads and was curious if anyone could tell me if this is a typeface for sale or if there is anything close to it? Pretty sure it is a custom deal, but was curious if anyone could point me to something similar. More interested in the shapes/structure I guess than the transparency/overlaps. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Type Foundry Summer Internship Opportunities?

Hello Everybody, I was hoping to get some help and maybe get pointed in some good directions as I start applying for internships for the summer. I'm currently a Junior at Iowa State University for Graphic Design and I've spent a large amount of my time researching and applying for internships at a variety of firms. However, considering my passion for typography and my interest in type design I'm keeping an eye out for any internship openings at type foundries in the US. I know some of the larger ones and have either made contact with (or am in the process of contacting): Hoefler & Frere-Jones, House Industries, Emigre, T.26, and The Chank Company.

Are bad fonts are easier to remember?

Are bad fonts are easier to remember?

I have read some news in BBC and other news programs, that bad fonts/ugly fonts are more memorable.

All school book commonly use Times, Georgia, and other serif font, they are good font. Are bad fonts can improve studying quality for student?

>??

Thanks,

need advice regarding masters in type design program

My application recently got denied for a masters in type design program. I learned from one of the jurors/professors that my portfolio needed to be 'less pragmatic and ordinary commissioned work'. He further noted that they were looking for work that contained more personal and experimental projects. This was my first time applying for a masters program and I unfortunately created my portfolio based on projects that I've done as an in-house graphic designer.

I want to reapply for the program next year but before I do, I want to ensure that I know how to best approach the creation of my new portfolio.

Question:

Short typographic films

Hello! For my first post, I'd like to introduce you to the work of a group of designers I teach.

The first project this semester in Advanced Media, a course in the School of Design Innovation at Arizona State University, was to create a 30-60 second typographic film, with copyright-free audio, based on a quote received on the first day of class. The first half of the four-week project was spent collaborating with a group of 7-8 peers to make and refine typography-inspired concepts. After this process, the students chose the best of three concepts, then spent two weeks executing it as a group. A well-rounded concept was emphasized.

Is SOHO sacrilegious for a school identity?

I am working on a school identity for which I have chosen Soho.

My friend {who is more experienced and learned in this field} considers the choice 'sacrilegious'. While I love the way it looks.

I would like to hear from the denizens of TYPOPHILE, what they think about the choice of the typeface.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention. The logo type is in uppercase.
