Recently my web browser (chrome) started displaying little blocks instead of text.

Here I have an example of the problem (from the yahoo login website):

I have no idea how to solve this and since this is sort of a 'typographical' problem I thought you guys might be able to help.

Here is a larger image of the symbol:

I can still copy and paste the text and it will display the right text, so I think it has to do something with the font. Anyone have any idea what might cause this problem?

Hi typopohile!

I am working on a display block typeface that I started because I believe that no block-display type exists with full functionality. For example baby teeth, the letters are great but the numbers arent so good, like the 7, in my opinion of course.

Seeing this I decided to propose a new system where I though it would be a good idea to make it mono-spaced, so it blocks even more, however it doesnt work with the Hebrew and Cyrillic alphabets.

The pdf that is attached shows what i have so far.

Does anyone have any idea what this font is, have to recreate it, no source files :(

Serpentine-like font

Hi all,
This is a serpentine-like font we used to letter a truck for one of our customers. We don't have the true-type file.
I'd appreciate it if you could take a look and a guess at what the font is.

Recreating graphics for the first time for a local pizza place that "can't remember" where they got their first logo. Can you guys help me out? I have no clue what this font is, the whole office is stumped.

Thanks in advance!

Need to re type set this because it won't cut out of vinyl well in its current unrefined form, the only downside is that I don't know what typestyle it is.
Any help would be appreciated.

Block-like sans serif

Hi there, could you please identify the font used here? I've already tried MyFonts WhatTheFont, but with no good results. (It's a screen from this lyrics video: )

Can anyone tell me the typeface of this print?

Anybody have a specific ID on this Collegiate Block Typeface? I know it is pretty standard, but I need to get it exact.

Attachment is below. Picture is a little fuzzy, but there are enough signifiers there to make an ID.
Please and Thank you.

Need to recreate a shirt and don't know the font. Please help.

similar font

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know of a similar typeface to Radio (attached) one with the letters confined in a square with patterns. Basically exactly the same as this Radio font :)

Thanks in advance :)

from Michael Adkins...

Beginning in January, 1932, Becker, at the request of then-editor E. Thomas Kelly, supplied SIGNS of the Times magazine's new Art and Design section with an alphabet a month, a project predicted to last only two years. Misjuding the popularity of the "series," it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally two months before Becker's death in 1959, for a grand total of 320 alphabets, a nearly perfect, uninterrupted run. In late 1941, almost ten years after the first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in bookform under the title, "100 Alphabets," by Alf R. Becker.

As published in June, 1937, this is the description that accompanied Becker's 66th alphabet, Neonline:

“NEONLINE BLOCK, alphabet No. 66 in Alf R. Becker’s SIGNS of the Times series, is a very bold, modern style for feature display lettering. Care should be taken in the laying out of this alphabet, and every letter should be made as bold as possible...”

Would appreciate it if anyone could ID this: (Have tried What the Font, but sadly no luck.)

Can anyone help identify this font from the Tembo Fine Foods logo?


Need help identifying the font used in the picture.

Thanks much!

Anyone know any fonts that are close?

I'm sure I've seen some. (Mostra, Aprille, and a few others are vaguely similar but not close enough.)


If I want to read all the posts and/or comments by user X, I can’t. Nor can I favourite or block a user.

We did this hand-drawn logotype for Oilily which will now be Qelavi in the US.

What say ye oh brethren of typographic love.

I ran across the anti-smoking website "No Stank You" today -->

They use a particular font that I've seen before (or at least similar-looking fonts), but I can't seem to identify it.

It consists of blocky, solid letters with geometric forms... the upper-case "C" looks exactly like Pacman, i.e. a pie with a piece missing

I've attached two images:
1) a screenshot of the website with the font in question
2) a screenshot of 'Black Boton Bold', which came up on Identifont, and is similar but not quite the same

Does anybody know this font? And are there any similar, free versions of this type of fontface floating around?
