Just want to share font design tutorial that I wrote few years ago:
I was assigned to design a logo for a theater company. They are producing their first stage play by now, so they are putting a great importance on the logo. It is called "Gentes", which is an unnatural plural of the collective word for "people" in Portuguese.
What sets them apart from other companies in Sao Paulo is that they are going to produce original musical theater, with brand new books and music. Most of the other companies go the other way round: their work is either Broadway musicals barely translated to Portuguese or jukebox musicals telling the stories of some important Brazilian artists.
I work as a technical writer at a security firm. One of the documents our firm uses in all government contracts is called PVT Procedures. This document contains test procedures that our installation technicians use during equipment testing events. Whoever designed said document was more familiar with the equipment concerned than they were with principles of typography and document formatting. I am now redesigning the PVT Procedures layout and so seek directive input from you all regarding what I've done so far. I've attempted to attach sample before and after images. Hopefully you will be able to tell which is which. Note that I'm limited to working with MS Word on all documents.
I am looking for a specific font used in the text of MARIO and LUIGI logo's of Mario and Luigi series for the Nintendo.
NOTE: It is not the standard mario or the standard luigi font.
Here are some examples of the text/logo
letters of mario and luigi (not the letters dream team) (this one is edited (edges were smoothed?)
letters of mario and luigi (not the letters bowsers inside stor)
I don't want to make a habit out of posting random designs, but I figured some of you may take take some enjoyment in seeing this. I took several letters from my typeface Baran and made these abstract illustrations. They're like type implosions.
Typenova I features /a and /e.
Typenova II features /g, /s and /x.
Typenova III features /y, /d and /i.
Does anyone have an idea what this one could be? It looks awfully familiar. The closest I got was Nordic Narrow. I first want to check if anybody recognises this typeface before I start digging.
