It looks like custom calligraphy to me.

Thank you much! Your comments are causing things to stand out that I missed completely before. Some questions (some of this is fairly new to me)..

I went in 2010 and it was really great. The design workshop with Sumner Stone was fabulous, only it was too short. This year, tho, it will be a full day.

cheers!

Mandarin Type Faces

Thanks for the clarification Thomas! And to add clarity, I've attached a roman face that I'd like to find as much of an equivalent as possible.

And here is one from the page...

Helvetica Narrow question

He can create a character style in InDesign and apply it to the dot. Changing the paragraph style shouldn't mess up the dot. Though I guess it could.. Worth a try anyhow!

good luck!

I have not! Have you?

@begsini

Great points there! I think there is an objective method for defining what are the best typefaces. While objectivity wasn't the point of this thread (I probably should've titled it "Favorite...

James,

I am with you. As a student I probably spend way too much on type (it's a bit of an addiction, really). However! For my fellow students who do not purchase typefaces, we have the luxury of using computers in the graphic design computer...

Randy,

I am going to have to disagree with you. I think dafont.com is a steep and slippery slope for students. Free fonts are a prime example of "you get what you pay for" with very few exceptions. Not only this, I find that when...

Those are some fantastic choices. Really beautiful type! Thanks for sharing!

Nick!

You have got me in a corner! What are the best? I guess that is different for everyone. (IMO) the best faces are the ones that have enough in them to allow a designer to set beautiful text. Type that one might predict would become a...

Palazzo Original
Commented on Thursday, 10 December 2009 - 2:51pm

One other important consideration is that Palatino was originally intended by Zapf to be a display face, although today just about anything with 'palatino' on it is used as a text face.

Zapf's other design,...

OOO!! Jos I like it a lot!

I am really excited to get my hands on all the weights of this typeface. That page has a really nice contrasty color.

Thanks for the heads up!

First letter of acronyms in small caps?
Commented on Monday, 7 December 2009 - 11:45pm

Marco hit it on the head. Use all small caps, no need to do a regular cap at the beginning. If you can, use open type all small caps for your character styles (in InDesign), that way it will force capitals to be small caps.

OH! and be sure to...

First letter of acronyms in small caps?
Commented on Tuesday, 8 December 2009 - 10:57pm

What about when the acronym begins a sentence? Capitalize the first letter? Everything? Nothing?

Christopher,

I had to try this out to see what I thought. My sceenshots may be a little large. The typeface is Scala.

The Super Heavy Display trend

Perhaps I should've been more specific. Eclectic (post) Modernism.

The Super Heavy Display trend
Commented on Tuesday, 8 December 2009 - 1:37pm

Remember that this is not a new trend. Early postmodernism developed this style. Including and especially pushpin studios. It is interesting to see how it is is coming back tho!

Maybe you could steal it! Great thing about the internet is that it is really easy to rip off people. Unfortunately, it is just as easy to be ripped off.

You probably don't want to be on either end of that stick.

Good luck tho!

Hey everyone, I need a new computer and since I am irresponsible with money, I can't afford to pay for one. Anyone know where I could pick one up for free? I am willing to steal, so yeah, any tips?

After all the hullabaloo about Ikea...
Commented on Friday, 4 December 2009 - 11:01am

Wow. Disappointing. With all the 'hullabaloo' about this verdana stuff, I sided with Ikea. Sure, verdana is not a great type for print, but it works, right? Besides, its risky and taboo.. cutting edge! And while it grates some people the wrong way...
