Hello,

I am looking for sources and suggestions on creating a font that demonstrates habits. For my final graphic design project, I have to design a typographical bookjacket for "The Power of Habit." Briefly, it is about how habits have the power to control and reform the success or failures of businesses, transform societies, and change our lives. The reaccuring theme is how habits work with a cue that triggers the routine, and finally what we gain from it. (Think of a continuous circle, and how habits pick up power by happening over and over again)

I am trying to use a process that can guide my design solution, but am having a difficult time with representing habits in my type design. Any place to start, ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

Hello all! I'm new to the forum and my name is Filippo. I actually work as graphic designer in Italy and I'm specialized in brand identity (Sorry for my bad English!!!).
I'm very interested in typography and would like, one day, to start creating a complete set of glyphs. Unfortunately right now I understood only some fundamentals of typography and so I'm here to ask you, experts, some questions that turns in my mind! Hope you will be so kind as to answer. :-)

I'm searching for some kind of training in Sydney on drawing letters. Whether that's a workshop/course, a book or some website, I don't know. I know it's sort of all about practice, but my drawing technique has fallen behind since I'd stopped drawing for a while now, and I guess I want to get in the routine of practicing, but I don't know where to start. Can anyone direct me?

Thanks!

Does anyone know if there is a program I can use that will make a sample of all the typefaces in my library which can then be printed our or made into a PDF for reference?

Thank you.

In one of my college lessons, its states that typography refers to mechanically-reproduced letters while calligraphy refers to hand-rendered letters. I wondered if this is technically correct, despite the general use of the word "typography" to refer to the study and use of letterforms?

Typostrate is about type and what you can do with it. Typography is more than only words and letters arranged in a nice way. Its a way of living and combining every facet of art and design. Wanna read more? Check out the blog typostrate!

Can anyone point me toward a font that is similar to the "ESELER" part of this wordmark?

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to identify this Gothic font.
It was found in Tschichold's Master Typographer.

Thanks very much

Hi, I'm doing a project on "engaging the audience" and getting them to feel inspired and appreciate typography, My audience is 4-16 year olds. My aim is to try and inspire 4-16 year olds to appreciate typography and possibly enjoy it more. I've done some secondary research into my age range and have even tried to make typography attractive via means of colour and shape but i'm not really getting much feedback when i approach people who stop and look. I was wondering if anybody may have some helpful suggestions or advice?

Thanks!

I am designing the latest issue of one of my magazines. The font we use is Kepler as headings and body copy mixed with Verlag as title headings. I am not loving the font Kepler and want to change it but not too dramatically - any advice much appreciated on which alternative font I could use that would mix well with Verlag. I have looked at Farnham but fear it may be too trendy for the magazine. It is a womans magazine, but for the older generation.

Thanks in advance

Follwing the popularity of the Fontli app on iPhone, we have released Fontli on the Windows Phones (www.fontli.com) ! And with an all-new smashing user Interface! The first truly typography-related application on the Windows app store! Now you see why we are so excited!

The user interface has been completely revamped to use the best of what Windows platform has to offer: the Metro UI. Check out some of the screenshots here http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/fontli/0d09f01f-17de-4757-b6... and you will see they are anything but a clone of Fontli on the iPhone.

Am I wrong?

Am I wrong to think it should be "type" when I hear/read "Web Typography"?

Or even when others refer to Typography when it comes to the typefaces on a site?

Hey everyone,

I've been doing a year long typography project, and my limited selection of typefaces is making the project feel stale and laborious. I need some fresh typefaces!

I am particularly drawn to hand-written typefaces. Not script, so much... but anything that looks like it was written by hand. Fun, playful, fresh, etc... these are words I am drawn to.

Do you have any recommendations that aren't going to break the bank?

Look forward to hearing your responses.. thanks!

I thank you for taking time to read this

Does anybody know any design blogs other than creative review?

hi @ all,

i'm searching for the name of a special art-deco/retro font i've seen on a image at pixeden.
i've already tried whatthefont.com and similar databases to find this one, but with no luck.
so i hope anyone of you can help me with this.

here are the pictures:

Hello!

We're 3 second year graphic design students from Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences, from Kouvola, Finland. We are making our own student magazine as a school project and the subject of the magazine will be about graphic design. The magazine will also be published in the internet. (We'll announce it later.)

We have chosen typography in movies as our subject for the magazine.

We would like to find some people, who are somehow involved with typography in movies; whether you're very enthusiastic about it or even working with typography in movies to interview. We'd hope to learn more about this subject through your views and opinions. It would also be interesting to hear about your work or projects.

Thank you in advance!

Anyone know of any research or have any suggestions for commonly used fonts that have the below attributes set out by Dr. Robert Hillier?

[For]The majority of dyslexic readers tested it was the combination of handwritten style, uppercase forms, long ascenders and descenders, light weight, uniform strokes, perpendicular design and generous inter-word spacing that was preferred.p275 (Hillier, Dr. Robert ‘Sylexiad. A typeface for the adult dyslexic reader’ in Journal of writing in creative practice Vol. 1, Number 3. 2008. P275 – 288)

I decided to throw together a tumblr blog of my 3d type explorations. I know I'm treading well-worn ground here, but I'm teaching myself the software and having fun with type while doing it. Although there's nothing particularly groundbreaking here, there may be something of interest to the people that frequent this board. Hope you like it.

and for those of you that don't like tumblr, I'm also replicating it all on my flickr site.

If you don't like flickr or tumblr, sorry, got nothing else for you.

Here's a teaser image [one of the better ones, ha].
