OpenType alternates - printing issues
Posted 27 Jan 2005 - 12:52pm

I’ve got an opentype font that I have been trying to get to print, but it will not cooperate and print the correct glyphs.

I have the font set up to have alternates for each letter and they are named a.Alt, b.Alt, etc. I’m...

FontLab sans zoom tool
Posted 17 Jan 2005 - 4:29pm

My zoom tool dissappeared and I can’t for the life of me find out how to get it back. I’m generally good at fixing stuff like that in most apps, but this one is eluding me. I’m using FontLab for Windows 4.6. ...

Underscore in font name
Posted 3 Jan 2005 - 11:24am

Quick question…

Will an underscore in a font family name cause any problems? Example: 40_thieves-Regular

I’m working on a font with a name like this and am having trouble generating TT and...

End of an era?
Posted 16 Dec 2004 - 6:36pm

There have been a lot of very nice typefaces released in the past couple of years and it seems like the number of grunge/badly drawn typefaces is waning.

Has this been influenced by the design market wanting different/better...

Updated MADType site
Posted 28 Nov 2004 - 2:43pm

Didn’t know where to post this. I hope it’s not too blatantly self promoting.

I finally found some time to update the MADType website. If you like, check it out at...

Foundries making things other than type?
Posted 20 Oct 2004 - 8:24pm

I was just reading a handgun publication and inside there was a story about the Browning/Colt 1911 pistol. In this article, the author stated that among other companies, Lanston Monotype had a contract with the US Government...

Help with OpenType handwriting font programming?
Posted 13 Sep 2004 - 1:38pm

I’m working on a handwriting font that I would like to make semi-random. I alrady have glyphs for primary and alternate forms set up in fontlab. I tried to read through the Microsoft OpenType spec but it was like eating a box of rocks, a little...

Another Windows PostScript font issue - Help!
Posted 13 Jul 2004 - 12:30pm

I’m having an issue with a family of windows postscript fonts that I’ve generated from Fontographer on the PC. When you go into ATM, only the regular and bold weights show up in the...

Question about windows postscript fonts
Posted 6 May 2004 - 1:45pm

I’m trying to install a multiple font family in windows that is postscript. I’m not using any font management software, just dragging and dropping. When I try to install multiple bitmap files, after the first file is...

Posted 15 Apr 2004 - 11:37am

Just thought I’d offer up a new item to critique. This is the light weight (not the lightest) of a new font I’m working on. It’s a monoline sans serif with a bit of modular modernism that I can see being used in magazines or...

Very nice calligraphy book
Posted 4 Dec 2006 - 9:48am

I just picked up The Art of Calligraphy...

Posted 26 Mar 2004 - 2:00pm

You could use the shape from the bottom of the q to make the i and j have dots (I would get rid of it from the q).

The y could be just like the g except having a vertical cut out of the top.

The f is quite topheavy. For the k...

Adding the euro to a font in FOG
Posted 19 Mar 2004 - 6:04pm

Forgive me if this has been discussed, I looked, really I did. I’d like to add the Euro to my fonts and I’d like it to be in the correct unicode and keyboard command position.

Can someone either point me to a tutorial or let...

Going rate for exclusive font licenses?
Posted 17 Mar 2004 - 2:23pm

I’m doing a handwriting font for a client who is in turn working with the company that will be paying for the font (Don’t know their budget). It’s a single weight but has alternates for a bunch of the most oft used chars....

What happened to Lines & Splines?
Posted 12 Mar 2004 - 10:42am

I’ve been out of the type scene for a while, does anyone know where the Lines & Splines site went? Did Andy just give it up or what?

Problem with embedding fonts
Posted 28 Feb 2004 - 8:28pm

I’ve been having problems generating fonts and then embedding them in illustrator/pdf files.

The problem happens after I generate a new font (ttf) from fontographer and install it in windows 2000.

When I go to save...

Posted 11 Feb 2004 - 5:14pm

This one’s kinda different. I was toying with the fact that we read partially by recognizing the tops of letterforms and what would happen if they were mostly the same shape. It also has some characters that allow you to build custom...

Furtive (working name)
Posted 8 Feb 2004 - 2:42pm

This is not my first attempt at a serious sans design, but it is my most recent. It is in the very early stages of development, only the lowercase is drawn. It’s a very sterile design with one goal in mind, legibility. It has sacrifi...

North GA Dermatology
Posted 2 Feb 2004 - 5:03pm

I’m trying to develop a logo for a Dermatology office. I’ve gone through a bunch of ideas and these are the finalists. The office does both cosmetic and medical dermatology. What do you think? (colors coming soon)

Posted 26 Jan 2004 - 6:19pm

Here’s a blackletter font I recently started. It’s purely geometric with mostly straight lines except for a few quirky letters. Let me know what you think.

Posted 19 Jan 2004 - 8:02pm

This is a first pass at an idea i’ve had for a while. I’ve been doodling swooshy letters like this for some time now and I think it will be a cool monoline display face. Obviously this is the very beginning, but thought I’d get...
