Lost Hand Written Font

We are looking for a font for a new client that they have been using. Anyone know which font this is or could suggest anything very similar.

Thanks in advance.

I'm at such a loss looking for the font from this sample. We are talking hours. I am grateful if you know of something close that I can cobble together a few words for a new project that is due soon. Disregard the cap "P" and "B" open stems if they aren't in your findings. Any ideas? Thanks!

help finding font

i am working in a digital design class, i am trying to find the cover font, not the logo, to the rolling stone magazine with marilyn manson on the cover. the issue number is 797. i need the font style to create a faux mag cover.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does the world really need one more vernacular pop culture typeface? We here, at astroluxtype shout a resounding yes!

Sure, you can find the apex of fine font design that will have your mind and eyes burst with joy at the level of sophistication and craftsmanship they exhibit- Koo Koo Puff Condensed and Light Condensed are not one of those fonts. But if kooky goofy is your thing, we're selling it at the astroluxtype booth.

I need help!
I'm creating a website/social networking resource and I am designing a logo. I found a font that I like for free from a website and want to use just one letter "s" for my logo. I will not be selling the logo or distributing the font in any way, just want to have a clean logo for my website/potentially more than that in the future.

1) can I do this?
2) can I customize the logo in photoshop or something and tweak it to make it original and use that?
3)if not, what steps do I need to take in order to do this legitimately?

Any help or advice would be extremely appreciated guys!

Title Case vs. Sentence case

Is there any research regarding the use of Title Case in headlines? I am currently doing work for a company that uses title case throughout its web site, on all headlines and subheads, and I find it unnecessary and more difficult to read than sentence case. I especially think that title case is not necessary when it's a complete sentence. But that's just my opinion. Thanks!

Hi my friends, today I have a question for you, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION of this f-i ?
the language is catalan, and the meaning of the word FINNISIM in english is FINE in spanish is FINISIMO (more easy to traslate)
I attach the pic only of the word, and also attach the pic with the context of the text,
I was read a book, and can see this kind of ligature, very particular.

HI guys,
I've started this ladproject, it's a "letterform a day" project. I was hoping to see if anyone else would like to join me in this experiment/project. The basics of it are, to "find" or make a letterform a day for 50 days. It can be found anywhere or in anything. You can make one or draw one. Paint one or just find one that's already made. An exercise to open up the possibilities of what can be considered typography, or where we can find typography. Inspired by Stefan Sagmeister and Michael Beirut, I've dedicated myself to find or make a letterform a day. You can follow the progress here... http://nicolascervantes.wordpress.com/ Post your letterforms there and also comment. Thanks guys, here's aB that jumped out at me today.

New typeface released, it was inspired by movie tittles from old B&W Hollywood movies. The typeface was hand drawn using a high number of colors to produce a realistic 3D effect.Perfect for display use, large format graphics, magazines, posters and 3D design.

Beginner lettering

Hey guys.

Here's a sample of some lettering I've been working on. I would love some feedback!
I'm a beginner when it comes to designing letterforms, this is one of my first renders in illustrator.
If you have any tips or comments or woes, please share.

Cheers!

To Whom I may concern,

I am currently a senior at the American University Dubai, majoring in graphic design. However I have a strong liking towards type design and I was wondering if anyone could recommend good type design firms to intern at.

I was and still am working on a typeface that I created for my senior project.
