I'm writing to ask for a little help. I know I'm a first time poster but any pointers would be hugely helpful and much appreciated.
I've just started working for a film director. We're currently putting together the poster for a film that's just been completed and he asked me to do research into gothic fonts.
This research landed on the Sonatine font - http://www.mauvais-genres.com/4550-thickbox/sonatine-japanese-movie-post...
This is the now the favoured direction, but I've started to come up against a brick wall looking for variants.
Unfortunately I used up all my researching option getting to Sonatine and haven't now got many idea's on where or how or what variants on the font might be out there.
I was hoping that some people with more font knowledge than me might be able to help a bit, and it really would be amazing if any one reading this might know of any other fonts a bit like Sonatine (american text) or anywhere which might be good place to start looking.
As I've been through myfonts, font shop etc looking my only real ideas now are to go to book shops and look for 70/80's fiction and see if they might have any futuristic/gothic fonts which might work for the film.
So really if anyone know of any fonts like Sonatine that would incredible and thank you for taking the time to read this.
