New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've seen "Helvetica", "Linotype" and some short films...
So do you know of any interesting film/short film to watch related to type in any of it's awesome ways?
Anybody knows this font used in video credits?
This great little video, The Top Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Fonts, from type designer and lettering artist Jill Bell, has ten tips to help you get to know, love and use fonts better.
The video was revised and abridged from a presentation Bell gave at regional AAF Conference. Bell has designed fonts for ITC, Monotype and Adobe as well as numerous proprietary fonts for companies. She has judged Linotype and the Type Director's Club's font design contests, and spoken worldwide including at many type conferences.
Long time no post! Sorry about that. I got married, bought a house, had a kid-- forums were the first thing to get cut. I guess I was never super active here, but nevertheless I'm glad my account is still around. I still think of this as the premiere place to talk about type.
I work at the Chicago Humanities Festival, and we just posted a video of a presentation by Chicago designer Jason Pickleman. He's created identities and branding for some great restaurants and cultural organizations here in Chicago.
His talk covers three areas:
Hi guys, I'm looking to learn typography through video or audio lessons.
I googled it and except a few short youtubes I found nothing helpful, so any direction pointing will be helpful.
In conjunction with its exhibition Graphic Design: Now In Production, on exhibit in New York City this summer, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design museum had panel of 6 designers whose work appears in the exhibition. Each was asked to give a very brief—seven minute!—talk on a "Wicked Problem" in type design, with a panel discussion afterwards. Cooper Hewitt did a nice video of the event, which you can see here.
The six designers are Philippe Apeloig, Hubert Jocham, Henrik Kubel, Jeremy Mickel, Jesse Ragan and yours truly. Ellen Lupton and Cara Di Edwardo were the moderators.
Does anyone know which typeface is used through this video's credits? (I think it's easier to spot at the end, when it says "music by Agnes Obel, but I have no clue which typeface could be)
Well it's been an extremely long time since I've posted on here but I wanted to share a project that I've been working on with everyone. About six or seven months ago I started helping out with DesignChat.
DesignChat is a live video chat that airs every Wednesday night at 8pm CST. We broadcast from smbolic (formerly SamataMason) and interview some of the coolest people in the industry for about an hour each week. So far we've had some amazing guests like Milton Glaser, Erik Spiekermann, Debbie Millman, Jessica Hische and many others.
Not sure about the Cooper Black choice, though...
Both images are of the same font (note how the 'i' and 'o' are shaped). The first image I found in a Japanese anime website, in a wallpaper. The second image I found while watching an anime fansub.
I've tried Identifont and WhatTheFontFont?!, both didn't give me what I'm looking for, I guess this is a pretty rare font? Thanks in advance if any of you identify this font.
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.
Typographic Video was created by students in Advanced Media, a course in the School of Design Innovation at Arizona State University. For more context on this work-in-progress, see other videos from this class or read the official project description on the course syllabus. The video was produced by Amy Ashton, Angie Copolillo, Josh Davis, Garrett Fox, Princess King-Taylor, Jennifer Lane, Adam Martin and Paris Polcyn.
